Newsworthy things of recent note

  • I've inherited Thomas' old laptop so now I have my own computer again. Can't wait until he transfers files so I can delete the Mastodon from ITunes.

  • We're going to Tucson Halloween weekend for a friend's ordination. Suggestions for interesting stuff to do in Tucson would be welcomed and appreciated.
  • I'm contemplating starting a second book group (maybe focusing on Classic mysteries) at work so I'm trying to work my way into the mystery genre. I've started listening to Tana French's Into the Woods which is quite good so far.

  • For non-book group related reading/listening...I finished The Lace Reader which I enjoyed thoroughly with the caveat that I found the ending a tad confusing. I'm slowly plodding through Kathleen Norris' Acedia and Me which is as well-written as Norris' other books but I think is trying to do too much in one volume.

    Every time I see you post with this icon, I want to tell you how much I love Hank Williams.

    Fair play to the opening. Baldwin was a bit wooden though.

    Aww, sorry Mastodon doesn't do it for you! But at least your husband has taste. ;-)

    The St. Xavier mission church south of Tucson is really neat. And I always enjoy the Sonoran Desert Museum. (It's more like a zoo than a museum, I guess, full of animals that live in that area. Including a hummingbird house.)

    A friend, i, is an artist in Tucson, and has a display up at a coffeeshop he frequents. This display is of photographs he took from a recent trip to India. I don't know if it also includes some of his photographs from his even more recent stay in Central America. The coffee shop is on University and 4th, I think. If not, he did advertise it in his lj.

    Hey Deb...check out an author named Troy Soos - writes mysteries against a backdrop of 1910-1930's baseball. Great stuff.
