First off - once again, be sure to visit Orianna to see what she is up to.
And here are a couple more thoughts on Broken Wing.
First from Apprentice Writer. She emailed me a while ago and I apologize for taking so long to recognize her review. But - she really enjoyed it.
And next from Renee of Renee Read Romance who checks in with her thoughts. We share very similar thoughts on a lot of books and I've been waiting to see what she thought of this one!!!!!
And now for the other book I can't say enough about. Leslie of Leslie's Psyche is having a contest for a chance to win a copy of The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie. Be sure to visit and enter 'cause this is one heck of a wonderfully, fabulous book!!
And finally - Happy Mothers Day to all the moms.
Today is mothers day and the boys (though at 30 and 28 they aren’t really boys anymore) are taking their mama out for dinner. In honour of Mother’s Day and to show why they make me laugh, here’s a recent conversation I had with Ryan. Keep in mind neither are married and neither (at least at the moment) have serious girlfriends – much to my dismay. When we stopped at two kids, I resigned myself to the fact that I’d have to wait for a daughter-in-law for the daughter I wanted. So far they aren’t cooperating in this long held plan)
Ryan was telling me how he’s seeing two women at the moment – one a ‘party’ girl who is only interested in playing – if you get my drift - and one who doesn’t want to meet his mother; the other a nice girl who is interested in establishing a relationship with a future. He was saying that he’s going to have to make up his mind very soon as it wasn’t fair to them to have two (um – ya think?) on the string. Girl two is the kind you would bring home to Mama – guess which one I’m routing for? Neither of them live in our city so I was curious……
Mama: So, how did you meet them?
Ryan: On e-harmony
Mama: (who is cheap) Don’t you have to pay for that?
Ryan: Yeah, it cost about $60.
Me: So um, how exactly does it work?
Ryan: (with much suspicion in his voice): Why? You’re not thinking of signing up are you?
Mama: Well, it might be nice to meet someone who I could go out for dinner with and to the occasional show – that kind of thing.
Ryan: Don’t you have girlfriends you can do that kind of thing with??
Mama: Well, yeah – I do, but it’s not really the same thing.
Ryan: If you say another word, just one more word, I’m leaving and not coming back!! Besides, I thought you got over that kind of thing when you were in your fifties.
Mama: (howling inside because after three years ‘this kind of thing’ is alive and kicking – if you know what I mean) Well, let me just tell you Ryan, remember this conversation and when you hit your fifties, tell me if you are ‘over it’
(I think he won't be - heh heh heh)
It seems that despite thinking his Mama shouldn't need a sex life, he got me a Mother's Day gift that made me laugh (and laugh and laugh)
Yes, this is what he got me.
