Weekend Reads (05/27/16)

This week has been both stressful and relaxing and everything in between.  As you are reading this, I am headed out of town for the day to take my Grandfather to visit his relatives' graves for Memorial Day.  Most of his family was from a small (and by small I mean hole-in-the-wall small) town so it's about an hour and a half drive from his house into the hills of WV.  I shouldn't be home too late though.

Booker T scared the crap out of me Monday.  I came home for lunch and let him and Cass out back while I was grabbing a sandwich.  I walked out on the back porch and saw T lying on the ground, unable to get up.  I ran to him and encouraged him, holding his head and after about 2 minutes (seemed like forever) he got up and started walking around.  I think he had a seizure.  He had one a few years back and the vet recommended against medicating him regularly unless they were a regular occurrence.  Our first boxer did the same thing years ago.  Needless to say, I took off the rest of the day to keep an eye on him (and calm my nerves).  He is doing fine and by that evening, was back to his old self.  We had storms all over the place Sunday evening and he is terribly afraid so we think the stress of that had something to do with it.  In fact, his last seizure was right after a storm.

I have a 4 day weekend so I hope to plant some flowers in the backyard and hopefully read - a lot! Here's what's up for this coming week:

My Best Friend's Exorcism Bite the Biscuit Progeny

I am more than half way through "My Best Friend's Exorcism" and really enjoying it. It's full of 80's references which I absolutely adore. Hopefully it won't take long to finish it up. I also need to get to "Bite the Biscuit" so I can move on the next in the series

So what are your weekend plans?


  1. Poor Booker T! I hope he's ok now. You must have had such a terrible fright...I would have been freaking out. The poor furry guy! I'd like to read more dog related books but they seem to appear in genres I don't read! I like the cover to Bite The Biscuit!

  2. Oh my, that would have me a nervous wreck too. I hope Booker T is doing better. Hope you get through your selection of books. I won the second book in that cozy series and need to get the one your going to read. :)
