I am honoring my mom today not just because it is her birthday but because she is a very loving, kind, thoughtful and giving person..
She would fit in perfect around here..

I'm sure that you all know feel-good stories about somebody that you know... Let's share them today...

Posted on Jul 6, 2013, 11:58:42 PM PDT
Thank you to Wendy for sending me the art work for todays open..
You are one of the most caring people I have had the pleasure of meeting..

Posted on Jul 7, 2013, 12:17:59 AM PDT
Awww, you're going to make me cry. That is very sweet of you to say Sandy.

What a nice open and such a good daughter to honor your mother this way. I already know you love her dearly and that you consider her your best friend. I hope your mom knows how lucky she is..... and vice versa.

Happy Birthday Vera! I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a year filled with fun and the best possible luck at the casinos. ;-)

Wendy ❤

A free book to start the day. I hope it stays free but if it doesn't I'll post it here..
Rainy Nights: Three Novels
Three bestselling novels together in one omnibus, including:

Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

Dark Horse takes place in Huntington Beach, California. Surf City, USA. Written in the tradition of Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, Dark Horse introduces a new hard-hitting, wise-cracking hero with a modern twist. When high school student Derrick Booker, the only black student at a posh Orange County high school, is accused of killing his white girlfriend, ex-college football hero and detective Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper into the murder. It doesn't take long for Knighthorse to realize that not all is as it seems at tranquil Huntington High, from a band director who preys on the innocent to a vice-principal with a secret agenda of her own. Not to mention someone's hired a professional killer to keep Knighthorse permanently off the case.

Three years ago, high school student Veronica Fortune witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. Now armed and dangerous, she sets out to hunt down the very thing that destroyed her life. That is, until she disappears. Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He's good at what he does. Damn good. But he's also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Hired to find Veronica, Spinoza won't let his personal demons-or demons of any kind-get in the way of finding the truth about the missing girl. Now following a bizarre set of clues that leads him into stranger and stranger territory, Spinoza is about to come face-to-face with something legendary...and something hungry for blood.

I've got Links started and now I'm waiting to make sure all is well. I'm tired tonight, but I need to stay up until they release the books for Sunday. I hope they release them early.

What plans do you have for your mothers birthday today? Dinner, casino, both? ;-)

Biscay says:
I seem to have become a lurker-only of late but just wanted to take 2 seconds to tell everyone I try to skim through and think of you all. RL is just too frenetic right now, it seems.

Beautiful start, Sandy. Your mum is very lucky to have you, too, I suspect.

DinkyD, what an awful experience for you, and for that poor boy. He must be feeling very alone now. He's only lucky you were there to help him at the moment he needed someone the most.

LOB, proud of you, keep getting well!

Elizabeth S H - it is so great to hear you are finally home - I think that's what I read - and I hope the others are soon going to be able to come back too. What an ordeal it's been - a marathon.

redandwhite, loved hearing about your GS1's wonderful day and new bike. Suze, Landon smiled at you! Robb, Susan, newmom, overtime, Donna, and everyone else I've missed saying hello to... sorry to be so brief.. I have to be off again - I'll check in again soon but wanted to send my best wishes to all.

Biscay xx

She will be at church in the morning, .. Then while Chris is at work I'm not sure.. She paid for and Chris built her a new
computer so she might want to play on it for awhile but she won't have internet till Mon..
We like to play Hand and Foot so maybe I'll let her win..

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 7, 2013, 1:01:39 AM PDT
Biscay, so nice to see you this morning. Suze's birthday is on Wednesday, July 10th so stop in if you can find a moment and help us celebrate.

Spirit Horses - Contemporary Fiction

In the hills of Tennessee, Shane Carson, a gifted, nationally-recognized horseman, is living the good life. When a mysterious mustang shows up on his farm, Shane doesn't know how-or why-the horse appeared, but the horse's distinctive brand identifies her. She is one of the Spirit Horses, a rare, wild herd that runs free on the Shoshone reservation in Wyoming. Watched over for centuries in the tribe's ancestral valleys, these exquisite horses, according to belief, provide a link to the afterlife.

When tragedy strikes in his life, Shane nearly loses his will to live-but for one promise he made to his young son: to return the mustang to her rightful home.

On this bittersweet journey, Shane finds a world where tradition reigns, and ancient beliefs transcend modern logic. In this magnificent expanse of blue sky and wide open spaces, love is alive, but hate, intolerance, and greed threaten to close in.

To make good on his vow, Shane must face the danger that threatens these horses, the tribe's legacy, and his destiny.

Good morning every one. Thanks Sandy for the great start!

Dark Visions (Sarah Roberts Series Book One)
Eighteen-year-old Sarah Roberts experiences blaeckouts from which she wakes to notes written by her own hand. Prophecies. Dark Visions. Future events with dire consequences only she can avert.

Sarah is an Automatic Writer who suffers from a rare obsessive-compulsive disorder called trichotillomania.

She has dealt with kidnappings before, so when she receives a message that details a kidnapping, when it is to take place, and what she can do to stop it, she's ready. But things go wrong fast when the kidnappers recognize her from a previous intervention on her part. People are killed. Witnesses place Sarah at the scene. The police find her notebook riddled with prophecies of accidents and crimes from her automatic writing episodes and they want answers.

Sarah is in a fight for her life with no one to trust. Her Dark Visions have brought her into the hands of a kidnapping ring who will do anything to find out how she knows so much about them.

While the police hunt Sarah for the wrong reason, her parents think she is at a sleepover. Her life is in her own hands and whether she makes it out of this mess alive or not depends on how many people have to die.
