This book is upside down.

I always read while I’m eating a meal, and put my book in a wire book holder. I wasn’t paying attention until I started to read, and discovered I’d put it in upside down. haha! 🙂

You have to see this wild video – so fun to watch! 🙂

It shows 4 guys and 2 girls in a plane in zero gravity doing all kinds of flips and tricks.

FOWC – Utopia

Standard

FOWC – Utopia

FOWC with Fandango — Utopia

***

For Fandango’s One Word Challenge today, the prompt word is ‘utopia’.

This fits right in with the book I’m reading right now. It’s “Utopia”, by Lincoln Child.

I’m 3/4 of the way through, and let me tell you it is a thrill ride of a book.

The action is set inside a mega theme park near Las Vegas. There is a plot afoot, with several accidents with the rides. There are some bad guys behind this, and of course the good guys are trying to find out what is happening … before it’s too late.

I still don’t know what they have planned, but it’s leading up to something awful I’ll bet.

Dust – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Phrase?

Standard

Dust – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Phrase? 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 27/2020

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “coffee, tea, or me.” Find a flirty phrase of your own or use “coffee, tea, or me” in your post. Have fun!

***

It is Saturday and time for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday Challenge. SOCS is fun, so if you want to join in, just click the above link. 🙂

***

I’m not real sure what this prompt is supposed to be about … flirty phrases, or coffee, or tea, or me?

I did read a book years ago called, “Coffee, Tea, or Me”, and it was pretty funny. If I remember, it was about airline stewardesses and finding dates? Whatever, it was funny, and now I don’t know if it was fiction or true.

Flirty phrases – I never used any, and I never had anyone say any to me that I know of. I don’t really like such things anyway. I’d have to go googling some if I wanted to know any, but I don’t want to know any.

I do like coffee and I do like tea – hot coffee and cold tea. Some people switch it up and have cold coffee drinks, and hot tea. That’s fine if they like it.

What I wanted to talk about is that plume of Sahara desert dust that is spreading around the past few days. Have you heard of it?

It’s slowly covering some southern states, including TX. I have noticed a haze in the sky lately. Not a brown haze, though. They say where we are won’t be but mildly noticeable. Still, it’s strange.

However, if you want dust, just come here on a regular sand storm day when we have totally brown skies for hours if not days, with grit getting everywhere. Those I’m used to.

Not much going on around here today. Hope your Saturday is interesting! Take care & keep safe! ❤

2002 Michael Crichton – Prey

***

Here’s the book I’m currently reading. I’m about half way through, and it’s really good.

***

I’d been in a sort of a doldrums with finding something to read lately. I kept reading parts of old books I’ve read several times, and yeah, they were good, but after so many times, I just couldn’t finish any of them again. I really don’t like to be without something to read that keeps me interested for awhile, and want to read more every chance I get.

I have tons of books, old ones, and even new ones. The thing is, sometimes I’m in a mood for something, but don’t really know what it is …until I run across some book that will hook me for a few days.

This one I got at a book sale, probably, a long time ago. I hadn’t read it before, and I guess it just hit the right mood at the right time.

So, you can enlarge the photo to see the back cover synopsis, if you want.

Here’s what I’ve figured out so far.

The main character husband has been without a job for awhile, so stays home to care for the children. His wife has a high powered job, and is doing good, But…she starts acting very weird…like nice to everyone one minute, then cross and snappy with her family the next minute.

The baby gets sick.

There’s a super secret scientific lab out in the Nevada desert (the wife works there).

The lab is manufacturing tiny robot cameras. Some of them escape.

That’s as far as I’ve gotten. So…I have to keep reading to find out what happens next.

***

So, how do you go about finding something new to read? Like me, do you stand in front of your bookshelves, picking up one after another, reading a few words, then going nope, nope, nope, okay I’ll try this one…nope…Hey, this one sounds pretty good. Start reading it, and it turns out that you picked a good one after all! 🙂
