Cloche and Dagger (Hat Shop Mystery, #1)Cloche and Dagger by Jenn McKinlay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was our July cozy at Cozy Mystery Once a Month Book Club(facebook) and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, especially the special little twist at the end. Scarlett Parker moves to England to help her cousin run a hat shop they inherited from their grandmother, and murder and mayhem ensues. Viv, her cousin, is missing, she doesn't know how to make hats and a posh Lady is murdered wearing only a hat that Viv designed!

The characters are likable, and the story has a nice pace. I will actually read more of this series.

Or what I'm doing on my summer vacation...

Long time, no rl update. The reason is that my life is rather quiet, for the most part.

It's hot here... very hot, mid-90s and so humid that the air drips.

I spend my days playing games on Facebook, which I would leave but for my game addiction.

I also do quite a few things in the Babylon 5 fandom - an update every two weeks of fandom things like fics, art and newsishness, I mod and post at a rewatch group as well. we are over halfway through Season 4. If you're a fan, join us at either Lj or Dw. Our name is B5_revisited. Once a year, I mod a B5 fan celebration called Babylon 5 Love and we post B5 fics, art , metas... anything every day for a month, usually Feb because well, you know, love!

I am doing Sins this year (Or is it still Ardor in August?). I have the story in my head but not typed yet. Starting this week.

Signups for the Oeam Big bang close at the end of the month as well. We have several. I wish we'd get a big bunch but OEAM apparently doesn't reach far and I'm just not a Tumblr person... NO clue what one does there.

OEAM is still up and running - the self upload site that EVERYONE swore they wanted so they could post to... um, I post there and maybe one more person now and again. It's a lovely archive and I monitor it nearly every day. It doesn't show up right on Google and I can't fix it. After Tallulah, Elfscribe and Marius (and others as well) worked and worked and worked, my webhost sent me a note telling us that we were using too much band width and if we didn't cut it down, they were going to shut us down. We - well Tallulah - worked tirelessly to do all the things they suggested to no avail. SOOOO I got us a new webhost and we were never able to get the site uploaded there. We realized that we were not using what they said anyway. They were doing this in an attempt to get me to change to a $40+ a month site, which I refused to do. So as one of the fixes, we sort of got off the search engines. We are at www.ofelvesandmen.com - nothing more. That is us.

I'm still old and still mobility impaired. I work on gaming, fanning and I've taken up reading cozy mysteries and belong to a group at FB that discusses one a month. It's fun. I am trying to spend more time reading than I have in past years. I also have a new overlock sewing machine... brand new - not even out of the box yet. I have to learn how to use it now. There are lots of nice videos at Youtube (you can learn to do almost anything there). I ma making some little craftish sewing projects and hope to make a few clothes as well when I get the hang of this thing.

Larry works at home and is working lots of long hours so I'm on my own most of the time. Sometimes I think it would be nice if he had an office off the premises... but then again, he is here all the time and I kinda like that, too.

That's all I can think of... gotta grab a shower and then it'll be time for Chinese takeout and British mysteries on PBS - our Saturday night excitement. I do love my Midsomer Murders!

So what are all y'all up to this summer? (Really! I want to know!)

TRUST ME


“That’s not the TARDIS!” Amy Pond shouted as they approached the shiny little camper.

“But we’re in America now,” the Doctor said. “They don’t travel around in blue Police boxes! They like something shinier, more snazzy!” He was wiggly with excitement as only this Doctor could be.

“Looks more like a sardine tin to me,” Rory chimed in.

The Doctor looked exasperated for a minute, then said, “Go on in with you! You’ll see!”

Slowly they opened the door and stepped inside…

The TARDIS! All bigger on the inside and everything.

“How?” Amy asked.

“Trust me, Amy. I’m the Doctor!”

THE MADMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN


“Are you nuts?” Sean’s eyes blazed with fear and anger, his accent heavy as it often was when he was upset. “I’m not gonna kill myself fer a bit of a thrill!”

Viggo shrugged and began to put on the harness, not saying a word.

“I didn’t come to Switzerland to splatter myself all over the mountains,” Sean continued.

Viggo began to put the other harness on Sean, who continued to complain loudly, but did nothing to stop him. When all was done, Viggo took Sean’s hand, grinned at him and said one word.

“Ready?”

“Hell no!”

They jumped together.
