Recently, though, the cat has started to walk himself out. He sees me, stares at me for a bit (you can almost hear him think "Oh, it's her again
" and he walks to the door to be let out.)
Occassionaly, he'll stroll to one of the windows of the living room to check if I'm still there: "Yup, still there *sigh*..she is aware that I live here, right?
I have read it.
I would agree indeed. The non-Stephanie Plum book (the heist) was terrible. I don't know what happened there but there was no charm, no chemistry between the two main characters,... The new Stephanie Plum book is better.
Takedown Twenty follows the same old recipe so there are zero surprises in it but it's a fun and easy read about those characters again: Lula (a favorite character of mine), grandma Mazur, Ranger (I prefer Ranger to Morelli)
Absolutely it's formulaic but I was worried it would be awful like that other non-Stephanie book. I'm glad it followed the format and was a nice quick read.
I did that once. Embarrassing to arrive on my slippers. Luckily, there were nice looking slippers but still...
I never wear slippers and therefore have never had that problem. Once when I was really young (and don't remember this), we were moving to a new house and my dad packed all - and I mean all - of my mom's shoes. Of course, the boxes of shoes were at the farthest end of the packed truck. So she had to go to the lawyer's office to finalize the paperwork for the new house in her slippers.
I never understood the fascination with NYC
Although considering the American other cities maybe people have a point....
The pics were gorgeous, though
I like American cities. Maybe it's because they're my neighbours and I've visited many of their cities throughout my life, one major one in particular that I consider my American "home." I don't have much experience with European cities, but I like our North American ones. While they may not be as old or prestigious as some European ones, they have a culture all their own.
Beautiful pictures, JM, as usual!
