   Plumnellie posted on Suggested Reading  My 92 year old mother is an insatiable reader. After years of getting and returning almost all the library large print books, I have been buying used or nearly new paperbacks on Amazon. She has a magnifying full page helper so do not order big print. At the present time she is rediscovering the Sue Grafton mysteries. Our entire family reads whatever Mom finishes and passes them down. I am gaining new respect for Mrs Grafton's writing skill. Does anyone else enjoy this series?

   Gram77  The minute her books are on the store shelf I am right there with my money. I'd love to tell you about her most recent book but don't want to spoil anything.

   HopeandGlory  My sister and I love Sue Grafton and Kinsey Millhone. We also want her landlord for a neighbour, his baked goods sound delicious.

   Plumnellie posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just finished writing an article on Common Core. My assignment was to include opinions from local teachers and Junior/Senior high school students. No teacher wanted her/his name used. Was interesting that here in Mississippi the chill from Big Brother has cost us the voice of so many people who could tell us an insiders view of the latest education poison pill. I ended the article by saying that 'as with all government programs be dubious and follow the money.'

   Plumnellie posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Our dog Silas is a sport. We got him and his brother as pups and they grew into Pete and Repete of pranks. Many a morn I would see evidence in my yard that they had raided the garbage bags of a new mother and littered the grass with bits of soiled diapers. Today is their birthday. I honor the two scamps with love and gratitude for being in their lives. Paul, Silas' brother was begged away from us by two darling children so we only have Sir Silas now. Dogs are God's gift to us. I love kitties too but don't need any at this time. Happy Birthday Paul and Silas: )

   Plumnellie posted on Suggested Reading  Due to expense we have stopped buying books and turned to the library. I get a stack a week or so for me, my Mom and hubby. Since Mom is 89 and losing some sight we have been attacking the large print books. We ran through all the Nero Wolfe books, even ordering from other libraries. Next we 'discovered' Jane Duncan. Her 'My Friend..." books are amazing and entertaining. We marched through all the Agatha Christie and discovered how good a righter she really was. My husband veered off on his own and read all the books he could find on the War in the Pacific. Reading is our greatest joy. I m hoping dear Mom keeps her vision all her days. Oh, another author we revisited was Jane Austin. I am about ready to re-read all the Arthur Conan Doyle titles again. Love me some Sherlock. The older books suit us better than current ones. Just when I start letting down my guard..the liberal bashing of conservatives hits me in the nose and ruins the book. Am playing it safe with the books we read these days. Oh love the Maigret series too.

   Surfhut  Plum, when my MIL was diagnosed as legally blind, we did a couple of things. We got a machine where she could put books under and read them (large print didn't work anymore ). We also enrolled her in the Braille Institute. She could order books to listen to on tape, for free. She was happy about both.

   Rollingcow  You can get Audiobooks at the library, my MIL does all the time when she isn't borrowing them from me. Many, many classics are on audio from Jane Austen to Edgar Rice Burroughs, you should try one and see if you like them.

   Judith  A few years ago, after reading patterson and similar writers, I asked my librarian to recommend some good, old-fashioned, HEALTHY murder mysteries. Imagine the expression on her face! Christie and Wolfe were favorites and good mysteries. But the reasons for the murders all made sense. The modern-day ones (especially the serial murderers )are too twisted and sick, they are not fun. I like Louise Penny and Evanovich-Plum series for entertainment. Any other suggestions?

   Rollingcow  Rhys Bowen is the author of three different series. I'm not too sure about the 'Evan' series since I haven't read one, but her 'Royal Spyness' series takes place in the '30's and while she mentions sex there really isn't any in them. Her other series is about an Irish immigrant named Mary Murphy I believe, it doesn't have any thing too risque or out there as far as the murders go. I find them refreshingly innocent for modern books.

   Judith  Our library also has e-book material. Just like you can download books to your mp3 player, you can get e-books for your nook/kindle.

   Plumnellie posted on Main Page The Lobby  Beautiful day in Mississippi. I am encouraged that Bachmann is tied with Romney in Iowa. Time for establishment Repubs to wake up. Read the long article about Bachmann and am very impressed. She and her husband are self-made in that they are reliant on the Lord but work for everything they have. Anyone else read that long article. Forget what publication or author.

   Plumnellie posted on Main Page The Lobby  Josh touched many lives. He had a special way of making 'family' out of those of us who love Lucianne.com
He also did not truck with frauds and impostors. I loved him sight unseen. And, am still praying for Mrs. Lucianne and his family.

   Plumnellie posted on Jokes  Never Represent Yourself
A man was on trial for robbing a convenience store. He didn't like the job his attorney was doing, so he fired him and represented himself. He was doing a fine job until the manager of the store got to the stand. When she identified him as the robber, he jumped up and yelled, "You're lying! I should have blown your head off!!" He paused, then added, "If I had been the one that was there."

It took the jury only twenty minutes to find him guilty. He was sentenced to thirty years.

   Rawmuse  My favorite, defense attorney questioning a coroner "Was the victim deceased at the time you examined him?" "Yes" "How could you be certain?" "Well, I had his brain in a jar at the time. But, I suppose, under the circumstances, he could be out practicing law somewhere..."
