Hubby and I just returned from a ten-day cruise.
Cruising seems to be what more 'mature' people do these days. I suspect it has something to do with not having to pack and unpack every time you hit a new place. That can be such a drag. Add into the mix someone comes in to straighten out your room three times a day, and makes and serves your meals.
Now you've really got something. Everything is... Read more of this blog post »

“I hurried through the drizzle back to the office, looking forward to the refuge of my book. Like so many books before, it would take me into another world. I needed that.”
Heather Haven, Murder is a Family Business

“When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries, and you rejoice.”
Heather Haven, Death Runs in the Family

“After a hasty, vague explanation to a wide-eyed Kelli, I left her to sort out Lady Gaga, while I threw on some clean sweats, and dashed out of the apartment. I took the stairs two at a time and ran along the circular asphalt driveway separating my garage apartment from the white colonial, two-story house, its pool and hot tub. I sprinted to where the driveway meets the street. Richard’s new green Prius was pulling in, his salute to the environment.”
Heather Haven, Death Runs in the Family
