I'm glad everyone's enjoying Mary Roberts Rhinehart; I'm starting another of her books later, or possibly tomorrow. Meanwhile, I read one called "Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy," and it was pretty funny. The premise is ludicrous on its face: the main character is a member of a family of assassins which stretches back to ancient Greece, and all family members are required to join the family business, supported by the family trust fund, and, incidentally, all must be named for places. Look it up; it was free for Kindle as of yesterday!
I'm not up to more of a book review than that, having had a huge cyst removed from above the tooth that got root canaled in May; this should end the problems that have persisted, but for the next couple of days, I'm ingesting lots of happy pills. Scrambled eggs are also a large part of the menu until I get the stitches out next Wednesday. Kevin said he's only seen 2 other cases as bad as this one, and his friend Joe the endodontist said he's only done about 10. So, yep, trust me to really complicate something that should be pretty simple.
Anyway, Kellie was talking to her boyfriend last week, and he was shocked to learn that she sews. Wanted her to make him something nice to prove it. So she went out, got some fabric, and made him a body pillow. I helped her with the stuffing of the inner pillow, and balancing it while she stitched it closed on the machine; I also had to help her install the zipper on the covering, because she had "sorta kinda" forgotten how to install a zipper. That's OK; it was fun to play with fabric with my beautiful daughter.
That's a great pillow, isn't it?
Happy weekending, everyone!
