No days off now until May ...

Oy, coming back to work from a 3-day weekend with two new office people is HARD. I started out perky and happy but then things piled up. Plus chauffeuring Steve back from car place and having him criticize my driving doesn't help.

Tonight on TV, we have Curse of Oak Island, "Dan's Breakthrough":

New evidence confirms a European presence on Oak Island 100 years before the discovery of the Money Pit, while new research suggests a clear pathway from the Knights Templar to Oak Island

And after that is Hunting Hitler, "The Final Hunt Begins":

In the Season 3 premiere, Bob Baer recruits one of the world's most foremost terrorist targeting officers, Nada Bakos. Enacting a new hunting strategy so effective it has lead to the capture of Osama bin Laden, the team uncovers two planned escape routes for Hitler out of Germany, one to the North and one South. Along the southern route, Tim and James discover a vast tunnel system under Hitler's home.

And then Chicago Med, "Mountains and Molehills":

Goodwin and Dr. Choi must find a way to treat a patient without making use of the hospital’s resources after a young woman showing signs of HIV with no insurance refuses the costly test. Meanwhile, Natalie and Will attempt to diagnose a patient who is suffering from increasing paralysis as Sarah’s concerns over the hospital’s security intensifies which causes her to continue to avoid work due to her fears. Elsewhere, Noah must deal with his first patient death as a resident. Shaken by the death, Noah struggles with finding the best way to work through things, while taking it upon himself to be the one to inform the family of the death.

But I probably won't stay up for that one. I have a feeling it's going to be a long day.

I started reading THE FAITHFUL PLACE by Tana French. 3rd of 6 in series featuring police detectives on the murder squad in Dublin, Ireland. 


Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping hisi family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not.  Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done.
