Consulted the cat legal hotline

Last night's NCIS: LA was wonderful. Here's a peek into the very last scene:

And this was an amazing scene with his mom:

The mid-season finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is on tonight. "Maveth":

S.H.I.E.L.D. battles Hydra head-to-head, which sees Coulson and Fitz take the ultimate risk while Daisy and the Inhumans try to keep Hydra at bay.

In an earlier episode, they translated "maveth" to mean "death."

I think I'll be sticking with MURDER ON ST. MARK'S PLACE by Victoria Thompson. This is 2nd of 18 in series featuring Sarah Brandt, a midwife in turn-of-the-20th-century New York City. Here's a description:

As a midwife in the turn-of-the-century tenements of New York City, Sarah Brandt has seen suffering and joy, birth and death-and even murder. And the crime ridden streets of the teeming city offer little relief from either. Thinking she has been summoned by German immigrant Agnes Otto to usher a new life into the world, Sarah Brandt is greeted by the news of an untimely death instead. It seems that Agnes's beautiful younger sister, Gerda, had fallen into the life of a "Charity Girl." Caught up in the false glamour of the city's nightlife, she would trade her company - and her favors - not for money, but for lavish gifts and an evenings' entertainment. And now she was dead; victim, no doubt, of one of her "gentlemen friends." No one cares much about the fate of girls like Gerda, but Sarah does. And she vows to find her killer. To do so, she turns to Sergeant Frank Malloy. As the two pursue an investigation that leads from the bright lights of Coney Island to the stately homes of Fifth Avenue, they find that their shared passion for justice may cost them dearly...

Published in 2000, it has 288 pages.  

It hit 60 degrees today. In December. In Montana. Crazy. I love global warming if this keeps happening.  

OH! And the Cowboys won a game last night! By a kick. With 9 seconds left in the game! I'll take it! 

Much love,
