Not really much to talk about today. Just another Tuesday. Hot hot hot. All week long. Summer isn't done with us yet. I hate summer...
Received via Kindle the Margaret Maron, LONG UPON THE LAND. This is 20th of 20 in series featuring Deborah Knott, district judge in North Carolina. Here's a description:
On a quiet August morning, Judge Deborah Knott's father Kezzie makes a shocking discovery on a remote corner of his farm: the body of a man bludgeoned to death. Investigating this crime, Deborah's husband, Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant, soon uncovers a long-simmering hostility between Kezzie and the slain man over a land dispute. The local newspaper implies that Deborah's family may have had something to do with the murder-and that Dwight is dragging his feet on the case. Meanwhile, Deborah is given a cigarette lighter that once belonged to her mother. The cryptic inscription inside rekindles Deborah's curiosity about her parents' past, and how they met. For years she has wondered how the daughter of a wealthy attorney could have married a widowed, semi-illiterate bootlegger, and this time she's determined to find the answer. But why are Deborah's brothers so reluctant to talk about the dead man? Is the murder linked to Kezzie's illegal whiskey business? And could his courtship of Deborah's mother have something to do with the bad blood between the two families? Despite Deborah's promise not to interfere in Dwight's work, she cannot stop herself from doing everything she can to help clear her brothers and her father from suspicion . .Published 2015, it has 304 pages.
So I walked the dogs when it was cooler this morning, work, home, dinner, probably hang out in the basement watching some Once Upon a Time. Here's a couple favorite scenes one from season one -- the first is in the flashback time of being in the fairytale as Snow White and Charming and not their contemporary selves of Mary Margaret and David:
And a good one from contemporary characters when the curse is broken, beginning of season two:
Deeks will have to wait until I'm done with this binge:
