Thunder Dog

Michael Hingson has been blind pretty much since birth.  It’s explained that because he was born premature, at the time of his birth hospitals put babies in incubators and fo

rced in oxygen, by doing this they were creating a breeding ground for an eye infection that caused him and many other people to be blind along with a few famous people.  At 14 Michael received his first guide dog named Squire.  Since then he has had many guide

dogs.  Roselle is the newest one only having her for about a year they are considered to still be learning each other. 

On the morning of September 11th Roselle was still sleeping in since she had been up in the early hours because she is sensitive to storms.  Michael arrived in the office with Roselle early to set up his presentation.  In the middle of doing so there was a huge explosion that caused the building to sway 20 feet to one side.  Being on the 78th floor of the North Tower Michael thought they were going to topple over.  However within a minute the building righted itself.  Without thinking twice Michael decided to get his office staff and guest out of the building until it was safe to return.  At this point no one is aware that a plane has hit the building.  During the long decent down to the bottom Michael uses his other sense’s to help him stay calm and by him staying calm Roselle will stay calm.  At one point a few burn victims begin to come down and still no one knows it was a plane.  As the long decent continues Michael realizes he smells something familiar but can’t place it.  After a few more flights of stairs he finally figures out what the fumes were and realizes they have been hit by a plane.  During this time he starts to wonder why anyone would crash into the towers.  Since it wasn’t foggy out like the time someone flew into the Empire State Building. 

Towards the bottom of the tower firefighters start to come up and as each one passes they try to make him go down with them stating he needs assistance.  Michael doesn’t want to go since he has walked this far, being blind is not a disability to him and because there are other people who might need them more than him.  Finally Michael, Roselle and his co-worker who has been with him since they left the office reaching the bottom and leave the building.  Once outside Michael’s co-work tells him that both towers have been hit by planes and there is so much chaos and confusion going on.  They decide the best thing to do is try to get home.  As they are walking away from the scene the South tower falls and the first big dust cloud covers them.  Once this happens they feel like they cannot breath and they feel like they are choking on the concrete dust so they try to find shelter.  They finally find a place but it’s not long after that when a police officer tells them and the others that are there that they need to leave to safer ground.  Once again they are out in the dust, at this point it has calmed down enough to walk but that’s when the North tower falls and yet again they are covered in another dust cloud.  By this time Michael’s co-worker has found a place for them to stay until they can get home.  At this place the women cooks for them and Michael is able to get in touch with his wife.  Michael decides later in the evening it is ok to leave and heads home.  He makes it home to New Jersey late in the night to a waiting group of family and friends.

I really enjoyed this book.  However I didn’t give it a 100% because I wasn’t real sure Michael knew what story he wanted to tell.  Based on the book title and excerpt you are lead to believe it’s all about him and his dog getting through the terrible tragedy of 9/11 and how heroic his dog was.  But in reading the book it seemed more like a memoir of him and his life growing up blind.  In fact I was so into the 9/11 part of the story I actually got pretty annoyed when he would cut in and start talking about how being blind prepared him for this situation because… I feel like he could have given us his background in the first few chapters and went on for the rest of the book to tell the store of him and Roselle’s frightening tale of 9/11.

When I was able to read the store of their escape I was so amazed at how calm and focused Roselle was.  She just waited to take commands.  I was so involved with wondering what she must be thinking, how she must be feeling.  I was also amazed at how many people didn’t seem to know what was going on.  Michael stated they never heard the second plane hit the South tower. I can’t imagine how scared and confused most of the people must have been by this.  I’m sure some like Michael were just confused as to what it could have been but decided to take precautions and leave.  I am comforted by this some that maybe most of the people that died didn’t know what was going on so maybe they weren’t scared and just left us.  I had so many thoughts and feelings and questions after reading this.  Like how many were right there, could see the light when the building came tumbling down on them.  How many of them were on top of the planes and knew what happened and had to make their piece.  I can’t imagine the fear they must have had.  Since reading this store I’m eager to read more stores of the people of 9/11 not to be nosey but understand what they went through.  Those people are our history and in order for people later in life to know what happened that they people need to share the stores.

A Bone To Pick

I was finally able to finish this book! I love charlaine Harris but I was just having readers block.

Aurora Teagarden is a librarian who once belonged to a club called real murders but that club was disbanded when they became the story of a real murder. One of the former members dies and leaves her home and family money all to aurora. No one knew she had that kind of money and no one not ever roe can figure out why she left this all to her. Once roe goes to her new home she realizes some one has broken in and did steal anything but seems like they were looking for something. Roe becomes courious and starts her own little search in the house and finds a skull. With nothing else to do she takes it to her mothers house and hides it in a blanket case. She finds a note from the former owner saying she didn't do it. Now roe is even more confused.

A few weeks later she is invited to one of her neighbors houses for a welcome party for her and her former lover and his new pregnant wife. During that week the city comes by to clean some brush away from a sign and discovers the bones of a headless man. During all of this aurora is dating the town pastor and trying to decide how she is supposed to act and wondering how she feels about this. After the welcome part she wakes up in the middle of the night to find someone in her house. She calls her ex only to find his pregnant wife come to her rescue. Once Lynn comes to her rescue they discover the neighbor was behind the murder and was looking for the skull. During all the comotion Lynns water breaks and roe has to help deliver her baby.

I really enjoyed this book there were some funny parts and some sad parts for roe. I can't wait to start my next real murders book. In the mean time I'm going to be starting a book called thunder dag!

Readers Block!!!

So right now for some reason I’m having readers block.  I love to read but every time I sit down to read I just turn the kindle off.  I don’t like it since I have a ton of books I want to read.  Maybe tonight will be better.  We’ll see.  I’m currently trying to read “A Bone to Pick” by Charlaine Harris.  But while I was on break today at work I stumbled across an article on Yahoo. “7 Things your husband wants to tell you”.  I thought HA this ought to be good ,so I read it.  I mean what really can this article tell me that I don’t already know about my husband and most men for that matter.  They are pretty cut and dry; you ask a question you get an answer.  Once you finish reading this you might think I'm bitter about something, I'm not.  I have an amazing loving husband who I know would do anything for me and he makes me happy day in and day out.  Sure we have our arguments like any other married couple but we never stay mad at each other.  I'm simply writing my first reactions to this article I read.  Hope you enjoy it.

This article starts off by telling me “for women the purpose of communication is most often to relate; for men, it’s usually to share information”.  My thoughts were this; when does a man openly converse?  My husband can sit in a car with me and not talk for a long time.  I have to ask a question or get him talking about something he is interested in for him to talk.  Now this may be because he is not a chatty kind of guy but still.  Then my other thought was ok yeah I can see how it would be for informational purposes like once my husband told me someone had gotten arrested.  I asked him “why”? And “What happened”? His response was simply I don’t know I didn’t ask. REALLY! Why in the world would you offer up information like that and not get ALL the information.  So to me this article already is not starting out to well.  But the article tells me to “read on to learn seven things your husband wants to tell you in order to help bridge the communication cap”.  HAHAHAHAHA… Oh man this is going to be great.
*side note to the communication thing.  Why is it when you’re in a conversation with a man and you ask a simple question like lets say we were talking about going and seeing a friend.  And then you ask well what time do we need to be there.  Why do they feel the need to say “where?” like we have just gotten off topic somewhere and we are now confused as to what place I might be referring to.  Please tell me this is not just me that is dealing with this and that other husband’s/boyfriends do this.
#1.  A small “Thank you” makes a huge difference. Agreed! First off why am I the one who has to say thank you.  How often do the men thank to say thank you?  Not very often and I’m guessing they don’t tell you thank you all that often because well it’s not pertinent information to share as my husband says “you should already know, I shouldn’t have to say it”  so why in the world do I need to “stroke your ego” it also says that in the article.  They like that it says.  Now since things aren’t always cut and dry I will say that I work and my husband takes care of the house.  So yeah I guess I do need to say thank you more… when things around the house actually get done.  Right now he’s so busy mowing yards for everyone else and doing this or that for everyone else I’ve taken a back seat and I still get crap about not picking up my clothes from the bathroom or the bedroom (I’m a little bit of a slob but when I come home I’m tired, ok)  so maybe this really needs to work both ways.  He needs to tell me thank you for working and keeping the bills paid and I need to tell him thanks when he cleans or cooks or mows our yard.

#2.  I’m more likely to offer you concrete advice than a shoulder to cry on.  It says “my wife came home venting about a problem and every time I came up with a solution she would cut me off and dismiss it.” Well duh.. let’s think about this real quick.  Most the time the solutions are “just get over it, let it go, who cares”, or something really dramatic that will make the situation worse.  This may be why we dismiss it and cut you off.  I’m just saying.  And as an afterthought do you guys think that since you only speak to us for “informational purposes” we think you might be good listeners since the information is not all that free flowing.  You can’t have it both ways here.  You can’t only want to tell us information when you think its necessary and then want to be “Dear Abby” when we want to vent.  And they say women are hard to get.  The article says we should just tell the men what we really want to do is just vent.  I thought that was the whole reason as to why I came to you venting in the first place.

#3.  If you want a chore done by a certain day, tell me that.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME!  Why in the world would I be telling you to let’s say get the wood stove off the carport.  Not because I want you to do it when it’s snowing again and we need heat in the house.  I’m telling you to do it because I want it done ASAP.  Men want to offer advice but can’t seem to understand when I’m asking them to do something I want it done quickly.  Good thing we don’t take their advice to often.
#4. Tell me directly what’s bothering you.  Oh so many things to say about this.  If you want me to tell you what’s bothering me we have to be in an informational conversation for you to talk to me and I have to be venting for you to want to offer advice based on this article.  I don’t tell you what’s bothering me because you will either minimize my issue, make me feel like I’m the issue, or offer some dumb advice, or more than likely you’re the reason I have a problem and I don’t feel like I need to tell you because you should know what you have done wrong.
#5.  Please don’t ask me how you look in that dress.  Well we wouldn’t have to ask you how we look if you would offer compliments more often.  You want us to stroke your ego by saying thank you more, well we want you to tell us we’re pretty more often or how lucky you are to be with us.  So we like to trap you in this question.  We know you have to say we look good because it will cause the "you think I’m fat/ugly" argument in which you never win.  But then we get you again you give us the blanket “you look great in anything” line that start’s the well if that’s that case why don’t you tell me more often argument.  And in the end the argument is always concluded with “all I want is for you notice me and tell me how great I look or how lucky you are to be with me” so you might as well say if often to avoid this question.  The article tells us to ask specific questions such as “Do you think these shoes match my dress”.  Well 2 points to make to that comment. 1. Why in the world would I ask you that question when you ask us that question all the time or we are the ones to tell you that those shoes don’t match your outfit. 2. That was not the point of the question.
6. I wish you didn’t think we had to talk all the time to be close.  The article says: “you both get home from work, or finally get the kids into bed, and then you just sit there watching TV. You call this togetherness? The truth is that he does, even if to you is not “being together” unless you’re actually having a conversation.  The silence in the room and just your presence feels like closeness to a man.
Well men let’s look at the word closeness.  Being close.  We don’t have to talk to feel close we are talking b/c your attention is averted somewhere other than us.  We can’t for the life of us figure out why when you get home you don’t care about our day or want to tell us about your day since we have so

much to tell you.  If a man wanted to just sit on the couch and watch TV with us and feel “close” we might shut up. How about actually putting your arm around us or holding our hand while you watch something we want to watch. 
#7 I wish you wanted sex more.  I don’t know about others but I don’t have this problem so I cant really comment on it.  But I can say this.  Probably if men wanted to stop treating us like they can just take us out when they want to and put us back when they want to women might be more apt to want to have more sex.  If men went around treating women like they did when they first got with us they would for sure be getting more but when men say “I got you, why do I need to keep doing those things” it makes us say “we got you, why do we need to keep doing those things”  I’m just saying.

This article was written by a women but I’m not sure where she get her information and why she would even write an article like this. If my husband really wanted to tell me these things why wouldn’t he just tell me and why is it her job to try to tell me.  You can read this article online if you feel like looking at it at http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/sex/7-things-your-husband-wants-to-tell-you-2508503/

Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro

I loved this book from the beginning!  I have seen some people give this book a bad rating but for me I thought it was great.

Lucy Fisher spent all of her inheritance on a trip to Hawaii with 2 of her good friends and coworkers.  When she returns she finds a bum carrying off her yet to be worn wedding gown and all of her other belongings thrown out in the yard of a home she shares with her fiancĂ© Martin and her dog Tulip.  Once she realizes she’s been thrown out of her house and her key no longer works she is forced to leave her sweet Tulip and stay with a friend until she can get with Martin and find out what’s going on and get Tulip.

Upon returning to work she is asked into the Doctor’s office with the office manager.  She learns she forgot to deposit a large sum of money off at the bank before her trip to Hawaii.  She is asked to submit to a drug test since some are missing from the office.  She unbelievably fails twice and is asked to leave.

Since she has lost her home and her job she decides to move in with her sister and nephew and come back to get Tulip and the rest of her things when she has her meeting with Martin.  The next morning her sister wakes her up to ask to barrow her truck since her sister’s car will not start.  Later that day Lucy decides to take a bus to the unemployment office to look for work when she is suddenly killed.  Lucy wakes up in what she thinks is a hospital when she later finds out she is actually in ghost school for “Sudden Deaths” who have a mission to complete before they can go on to “The State”.  Before her classes start all the students are allowed to go to their funeral.  Lucy is excited about this.  She starts thinking about how great it’s going to be and who will be there and what will take place.  However sadly the only people there are her sister, nephew and one of her sister’s friends.  Lucy is horror stricken when no one shows up to her funeral.  So the next few lessons in her class she is not trying as hard as she should to learn her lessons.  Finally she is done with classes and is sent to her mission.  Her home base is none other than Martin’s home.  Lucy’s bad luck continues to follow her even in the afterlife as she is quick to find out that the one who fired her is now living in her home with her ex and her dog. Instead of trying to figure out her mission she is depressed and trying to figure out what is going on when one day the fun begins as she is reacquainted with her grandmother.  At one point she finally figures out her mission and starts to take things seriously so she can get to “The State”.

I really enjoyed this book more so than I thought after reading some of the reviews.  I decided though as a book lover that I was not going to let someone’s bad review hinder my want to read.  I’m glad I made that choice since I really enjoyed this book. I can’t wait to read more books from Laurie Notaro.

A place called blessing: where hurting ends and love begins

At first I wasn't real sure about this book since its not the type of book I normally read. However once I actually started reading this book the more I fell in love with it and couldn't put it down.

This book is about a boy named Josh who has two brothers named Matt and Sam. There parents aren't the best. They leave the kids at home alone a lot with no food most days and sometimes no electricity. There parents are selfish and like to party and spend time with there friends. One night it catches up with them and they die. Once this happens the boys are put in foster care.

Foster care turns out to be what everyone has ever heard about. But as luck would have it one day a family wants to care for the boys. Not just one or two like the past but all three boys. The boys meet some neighbor kids named mike and Jody or j.j. Jody and Josh are the youngest so they hang out in a secret hiding spot all the time until one day a tragic accident claims the life of Jody and sends the boys away to a group home. From then on Josh has problems finding a family to want him. Eventually his brothers find families and he's left on his own and loses contact with his brothers.

Once Josh graduates from high school and turns 18 he is basically kicked out of the home. Josh moves to a new town and finds work with a construction company while living in a hotel room and the streets. At work he meets a guy named mike who tells him his mom has a room for rent if he wants it. Josh finally decides living with this guys mom is better than the streets. At first things are a little rocky but as time goes on they become one big family. Josh overcomes a lot if his demons living there with the help of mike and Anna. Once mike passes away Josh finds out a secret about mikes family that helps him patch things up with him and Lori, mikes cousin.I could have sat and read this book in one day if I had given it a better chance at first. By the end of this book I was crying and so happy for the ending that it makes you realize you can never give up hope on yourself. John Trent did an amazing job with this story of hope. I received this book free from the publisher through the booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Florida, Blogs and book happiness

I'm beyond excited! Once I get off today (@ 4:45)  I will be hitting the road and going home to Florida!  It's been 7 months since I've been there and 9 months since I've seen my mom!  Just found out yesterday grams is in the hospital. She went to the doctor for a check up (she has cancer) and mom told the doctor she had been having problems breathing. At the doctor they checked her O2 stats and they are down below 90 so the doctor advised she go to the hospital.  I believe she had to stay over night but I'm not sure if she will be there for longer.  Keep me in your prayers for my travels and for my grams.  

Since I'm off work tomorrow I've been informed I can pick up my check from the temp office today instead of Friday.  However I have a whole new set of problems.  What if the check's post dated and I cant cash it until tomorrow!  That would suck so bad since its a 14 hour drive down to Florida.  But if I cant get it cashed I guess there's no use in getting angry since there's not much I can do about it.  I'm just hoping that either one of the banks will be open and cash it for me or that walmart wont pay to close attention to the date and cash it for me.

I've really gotten into blogs recently and I like it.  I mean i can meet people who love books as much as I do and get a review on a book I'm planning on reading.  I can write out my feelings every day if I want to or every other month.  Some times I feel like I want to start a journal but then I never keep it up.  At least this way I can type what I'm feeling and move on.  I just wish I had more followers. :(  I have a profile on the site goodreads.com and I really like that site.  I can enter to win books, I can swap books if I want to and I can be involved in different reading challenges.  I can also be involved in a book club but I'm not sure how I feel about that one.  Since I have a ton of books I want to read as it is I dont want to have to read boring books other people want me to read.  I may try to start my own book club and see how that goes.

I get depressed some times b/c I think I'm bored with life most days but right now I'm feeling pretty good.  I have job even though it might be a temp to perm job that hasn't gone perm yet I'm still happy I'm able to support my family there was a year when I was so depressed I didnt want to get out of bed most days and now I"m starting to be able to pay my bills right when the bill comes and thats a great feeling and were getting to the point where we can start going out and actually having a life now and I know that is a huge excitement for my husband and I both since we havent done much in a very very long time.  It will be nice to get out with friends or have a date night.  And if life keeps going well we can start saving to do things to our house that we've been wanting to do.  Like new floors and remodeling rooms.  Another thing that gets me pretty depressed is since I've left home most of my friends dont talk to me any more and its hard to make good friends in a small town since everyone seems to be pretty clique-y with friends they've known since they were born pretty much.  So it's always nice when I let my old friends know I"m going to be in town and they let me know they cant wait to see me.  It would just be nice to know they think about me some times and check in see how I"m doing or even come visit me. :)

Right now I'm reading "Spooky Girl" by Lauri Notaro on my Kindle and its pretty good so far I'm loving it.  I have an actual paper book to read that I got from booksneeze.com for free and then have to do a review on its called "A Place Called Blessing" I'll be reading that and my Kindle on my long long 14 hour drive back home to Florida.  Until then keep me in your prayers and look out for my next update.

Shakespeare's Landlord

As of Tuesday 6/21 I've started reading the Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris.  The first book in the series is "Shakespeare's Landlord".  As of last night I have red up till chapter 4 and its been a pretty hard read for me.  Not because its hard to read but because its slower than her other books.  Lily is nothing like any of Charlaine's other characters.  Lily's hard, quiet and guarded with a secret.  By the 3rd chapter things start to pick up since we've gotten past the "Who" and "Where".  Since this book has gotten good reviews I'm going to stick with it and since I dont like to leave a book unfinished.

Lily Bard has moved to Shakespeare 4 years ago and she lives a quiet life and is physically fit by way of Karate.  She cleans peoples houses for a living.  Lily moved to Shakespeare to get away from her former life.  Throught out the book (so far) you get glempses of her past.  I'll have to keep reading to find out more.  As of right now I only know that Lily is about 30, she comes with emotional baggage and some physical scarring.  She doesnt seem to have any close friends in Shakespeare since she seems to keep to herself.  She does have plenty of aquantiances from her line of work.  She owns her home she bought from Pardon who also owns the apartment complex on one side of her and the home on the other side of her inhabited by a handsome 30 something guy.  Lily seems to have a hard time sleeping so she walks the park across the street from her at night.  One particular night she was walking and noticed someone pulling her garbage rack through the park.  Just as she was getting tired and ready to come out from her safe shadows back home this person comes back and puts her rack back where they got it and went into the aprtments next door.  Lily is courious as to what this person was towing to the park so she did some looking for herself and found a bag and decided to look inside it to see what was in it and descovers a body.  Since she is tired she doesn't want to deal much with the police so she goes back to her house, puts new bags in ther garbage cans and calls the chief of police and tells him there is a body in the park across from his house.  She then lays down and goes to sleep.  The next morning she has to go to Mary's apartment and clean for her since her son pays Lily to keep an eye on her and to clean her apartment and everyone is abuzz talking about Pardon's murder. 

That's as far as I've gotten so until tonight when I read some more....

**UPDATE** 6/27/11

Ok so I've read a little more.  This was not a major reading weekend so I dont have much to say about it.  I finally learned what happened to Lily to make her the way she is.  Strange things are starting to happen to her and some of the other people in Shakespeare.  Lily's not sure if someone from her past has come back to scare her or if its some one in Shakespeare who found out about her past life in Memphis.  I must admit it is getting a little more interesting now that Lily has some action going on in her life but it's still not a page turner for me like most of Ms. Harris' other books.

In other news I'm going home to Florida on Thursday for the holiday weekend and I'm super excited so I might have tons to write about on the drive down there. 

**UPDATE 6/29/11**

Ok in the beginning of reading this book it was pretty slow. It took 4 chapters before it started to get interesting. But by the time I got past that part it finally became a page turner and now I'm pretty interested in the Lily Bard Series. I would say that if you like Charlaine Harris yo will like this book.

An Ice Cold Grave

I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris since I red all of the Sooki Stackhouse books (except Dead Reckoning, its in my Kindle to read).  Since I had to wait for "Dead Reckoning" to come out I decide I would read some of her other series books. So far I have read "Touch of Dead" "Real Murders" Aurora Teagarden series book 1, "Grave Sight" Harper Connelly series book 1 and "Grave Surprise" Harper Connelly series book 2. And right now I'm reading "Shakespeare's Landlord" Lily Bard Series book 1.

If you're an avid reader like I am you will not start in the middle of the series but with the Harper Connelly books you could if you didn't mind starting in the middle.
"An Ice Cold Grave" is the 3rd book in the Harper Connelly Series.  I started off reading "Grave Secret" the first book.  "Grave Secret" basically explains who Harper Connelly and Tolliver Lang are.  A little bit of background on her and shares her "special ability"

The 2nd book "Grave Surprise" talks about the business she and her step-brother (Tolliver) have made based on her ability to located dead bodies from a freak lightening strike accident.

"An Ice Cold Grave" takes place in Doraville, NC about winter time.  Doraville is a pretty small town.  A local women has gotten with the police to see if Harper can locate the 6 missing boys.  One of the boys is the local woman's (Twyla) grandson.  The old sheriff assumed the boys were runaways and didn't look into the cases very well.  The new sheriff is out of options and agrees to let Twyla have Harper come see if she can locate the boys.

Twyla takes Harper and Tolliver to a few places the grandson was last known to be.  At each location Harper is unable to get a "buzz" on any dead bodies.  Just when I'm thinking this might be one of the times Harper can not locate a body Twyla takes them to one last significant location and its here that Harper is able to find all of the missing boys.

Once Harper's services are done she and Tolliver are ready to leave this town (finding the boys was pretty traumatic for Harper) and the media circus.  However the killer was not happy his secret was out and attached Harper keeping her in the town much longer than needed.  Since this is a small town and they gave up their room and all the other rooms were taken up by the media Twyla agrees to let them stay in her cabin on the lake.  While at the cabin the tension that's been building between Harper and Tolliver since the end of the last book finally comes to the surface in a way that I did not see coming!

Finally they are able to leave but Harper can't get the feeling that there is more to this story.  Tolliver has to keep reminding her she is not a detective and to leave it alone.  Harper agrees and they set on their way to give Twyla back her key to the cabin.  However once again she is attacked.  (funny since the killer is behind bars)...

So far for me this book has outdone the other two Harper Connelly books.  This book had so many twists and turns and just when you think you have it all thought out Ms. Harris throws a surprise at you and leaves you wondering why you weren't able to figure out the outcome.  I can't wait to read "Grave Secret"!

The Beginning

Since I love to read so much I thought maybe I can blog about it and maybe others who share my passion for reading can share some of their favoite books as can I.  I look forward to hearing from you all.  Right now I'm really into Charline Harris and I just finished a book in her Harper Connelly series. And I'll write about it tomorrow I need to get my thoughts together.  I just cant put her books down I love them so much.  Let me know who your favoite writers are.
