'Bones' star Emily Deschanel breaks down the final episode - CNN.com

'Bones' star Emily Deschanel breaks down the final episode - CNN.com:

'via Blog this'

I have watched every episode of Bones (okay, I may have missed one or two).

Last night I watched the series finale of Bones, and I'm satisfied with the end.

I held my breath, hoping no other characters would die (and no, I'm not going to tell).

The Jeffersonian was dealt a huge blow--anyone who has watched the previews knows this, so I'm not giving anything away.

Last night my heart thumped a bit harder, and I clenched my fists a few times.

But the magic of this team, these characters, was alive and well last night. I wished the characters good luck and Godspeed, and silently thanked the producers for wrapping up a great story.

Thanks for all of the years of great entertainment (but dammit, did you HAVE to kill Sweets?).

Let it go, Beth. Just let it go.

Now I'm going to hope that Netflix keeps all seasons of Bones available.

Farewell, Bones!

"Echoes in Death"

Echoes in Death (In Death, #44)Echoes in Death by J.D. Robb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Another great In Death book

I love the stories JD Robb tells in this series.

The characters are wonderfully crafted and interesting.

Best of all, I've witnessed Eve Dallas grow as a human being, tackling her demons with the love and support of her husband and friends.

If you love a good police procedural story with a bit of romance thrown in, you should read the In Death series.

What I didn't like about this book: it's finished.



View all my reviews

I don't remember when I first started reading J.D. Robb's 'In Death' series (2006?), but I know that I was hooked after reading "Naked in Death," published in 1995.

I've read all forty-four books, some of them more than once. Most of them are now on my Kindle, and some also on my Audible account.

The homicides that Lieutenant Eve Dallas tackles in mid-21st century New York City are gruesome and sometimes hard to read about. But Eve and her team work their cases with anger, passion, and, at timers, humor. Eve's husband Roarke helps with the cases, because
besides being rich (and gorgeous), he's wicked smart. The relationship between Eve and Roarke is HOT. And they fight as hard as they love.

This week I got my "Echoes in Death" poster from St. Martin's Press:


Love it.

And I cannot wait until September 5, when "Secrets in Death" is published. And yes, I have it preordered!

Loving Rose

I talked about retirement for years before actually taking the plunge! I had all kinds of plans for my retirement. Happily, I've not even tried most of them. 

But one of my retirement ideas has been realized. I talked about having a dog in my life again, and I've done it!

Rose is a family dog. One of my grandchildren brought her home from a rescue shelter a few years ago. I love this dog! She's sweet and cuddly, and eats up our kisses and hugs!

Rose has never met a human she doesn't like. She loves to eat people food (especially Cheese-It's, when she can get them). My daughter-in-law walks her every day, and she takes her morning nap right after!

We love our Rose. I love Rose, and enjoy being with her every day. Rose makes my day, every day!

The final episode of Inspector Lewis starts soon.


I watched every Inspector Morse episode on Netflix a few years ago.

Sergeant Robbie Lewis and Inspector Morse solved a lot of murders in Oxford. Lewis was patient with his superior, which wasn't always easy! After the Morse series ended, the fictional Sergeant Lewis became an Inspector and got his own series.

I have not seen every episode of Inspector Lewis, but I am sure that Netflix or Hulu will pick it up (at least I hope so).

Inspector Lewis is a well done series! The characters are well developed, and the stories are well done. For me, that means I cannot
figure them out!

Lots of murders in these sleepy little villages (but I'm sure not in real life).

Inspector Lewis is on at 9:00 p.m. Pacific time, on PBS.

"Says Who?" Trump Lawyer Self-Destructs On CNN



This was a RIOT!

#sayswho

Summer in Bellevue

We don't get a lot of hot weather in Washington State, but when it arrives it can be brutal. 

Not a lot of folk have air conditioning here; rents are so high I'm sure cost is a factor for many Seattle residents. 

I'm lucky this year, because we have an air conditioner at our house! It's supposed to be 95 degrees F tomorrow and Saturday, so I will be sticking close to home! I may also cool off with our lawn sprinkler if I get too uncomfortable!

Since I'm retired, I don't have to go out to work every day (thank goodness). Keeping the lawns green is a full time job this time of year, since we don't have too much rain. We water early in the morning, before it gets too hot!

#NakedTrump is the top Twitter topic today. I guess statues of Naked Trump are showing up in a lot of U.S.  Cities today. Don't worry, I won't post a pic of the statue. It's gross! 

Instead, I'll show you my latest pic of our backyard!
Stay cool!
