Jabber, Jabber, Jabber for 31.5 Hours

Audiobooks on CD


One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey. 9 CDs at 10.5 hours.  Another shirtless cowboy carries around a saddle.  I had to carry the seven-year-old's bicycle last night.  The chain came off his bicycle and when I tried to put the chain back on the sprockets the mosquitoes were all over me.  I just carried the bike since we were a block from home.

Tuesday's Child by Fern Michaels.  8 CDs at 9 hours.  Lawyer helps client who is finally exonerated of murder after ten years in prison.  We (the ten-year-old as well) were swimming at Rock Lake.  No mosquitoes over the water but there was a honking big horse fly.


Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan.  5 CDs at 5.5 hours.  Comedian tells funny stories.  I need some goggles.  I was trying to swim for some exercise and cannot do the crawl with my eyes closed, I always swerve to one side or the other.

Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg.  6 CDs at 6.5 hours.  Computer lady tells you how run a business. I've thought about going to the lake in the later evenings to swim but the mosquitoes were so thick at 7:30 PM that I'm not sure I want to try that.

Lutz's Bombshell Love for Unseen Affliction Panties


The Last Word by Lisa Lutz.  Lutz was at last year's Murder and Mayhem in Muskego.  Lutz is an entertaining speaker.  I still have not read any of these humorous mysteries.  At least, I assume they are humorous.  I've never read one to know for certain.

Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich.  Big time athletic trainer offers to help out overweight, 32-year-old widow.  Romance ensues.

Bomb Shell by Catherine Coulter.  The book's back cover is Coulter's photo. She has bobbed, blond hair and a suede jacket.

Unseen by Karin Slaughter.  Slaughter's photo covers the back of her book too.  She also has blond hair but the photoshopping blurs everything except her head.

True Love by Jude Deveraux.  Another big author photo covering the back of the book.  Deveraux is in profile wearing some big coat.

Affliction by Laurell K. Hamilton.  Another vampire sex book.  Hamilton also covers the back of the book.  Photographed inside a concrete warehouse room, Hamilton is wearing above-the-knee, lace-up, black boots.  Sitting sideways in a director's chair with one leg pointed high at 45 degrees.

Town and Country Days

Town and Country Days runs from Thursday through mid-day Sunday during the last weekend in June. The Parade is Saturday morning. Yet again I do not have photos of my participation in the Boy Scout dunk tank.  Yet again, I do not have photos of me mocking the people who are unable to dunk me.
