This past weekend we were in gloriously sunny Myrtle Beach SC for a bit of fun, and I'm pleased to say we had a fabulous time. Driving along Ocean Drive was wonderful but it was alarming to see so many homes for sale.
Now I'm trying to figure out when I can get back down there to see their Christmas Show. Performances begin next week and based on the regular show, I know it will be amazing.
Yesterday I finished the last Dick Francis book, Crossfire, that was published after his death. It was just as gripping as the first one I read, and re-read, and re-read again. I own all his books and have read several of them multiple times. Now I'm waiting for the last Robert B Parker novel, Painted Ladies, which features his Spenser character. It's still hard to believe there won't be more books coming from these two incredible authors.
I still haven't found my skeleton to put out on the front porch, but I did find the witch's shoes. And I made a few more Halloween purchases while in Myrtle Beach that are now displayed with all the others, along with the pansies and pumpkins. Can't wait for Sunday night when all the little ghosts & goblins come calling. Baby Jackson is supposed to be paying me a visit. Squeals of delight will surely be heard all over town, so listen for me.
And if you're in the neighborhood, come on over. The candy bowl is overflowing once again!
