Thank you all for the well wishes on the ole back-a-roni. I guess I zigged when I should have zagged. Feeling a bit better (not!) which could be a result of the hot shower or the glass of wine. I figured the wine might work as a muscle relaxer and thereby save myself the trip to the friendly neighborhood doc.
Just an update as well on the Steig Larson books. The first book takes forever, I mean FOREVER, to get into. There is a lot of background; probably the first third to first half and then............it gets interesting. The second book picks right up without all the laying the groundwork and the third book starts with the morning after the second book stops. Those of you that are reading it and getting discouraged.......hang in there it does get better.
If you like this trilogy and the sort of don't know who done it and cheer for the good guy books with twists and turns along the way, I recommend reading Greg Iles. Same sort of concept but his stories are set in the modern day south. Easier to follow(at least for us Yanks) because there is no need to try to remember all those foreign names, towns and highways. lol I have read Turning Angel and The Quiet Game. I think I finished each in a week....definite page turners. He has several books out...maybe 8 to 10. All seem to center around the same characters. I plan to pick up one of his when I am finished Hornets Nest as my next read.
So far 6 Halloweeners which means there is a whole lot of candy left for me. Oh No!
