From Maverick to the Notebook

First, I must admit I have loved James Garner, or at least the parts I’ve seen him play since I was about four years old. While I have never gotten into the fan thing, there are a handful of actors and actresses who have brightened my life. (They don’t use the term actress anymore; my niece is an actor.) But the brightest among them has always been James Garner. If Lorne Greene as Ben Cartwright was my father, James Garner as Maverick, was my husband. Of course I had to get the book.

The Joke's on Him!

It is a nice warm Sunday evening due to be followed by a wickedly cold Monday, meaning I should have been out doing Christmas shopping instead of watching the home teams get beat. Then again, tomorrow will feel more like Christmas. It also means that our Sensual Sunday book will be a little something to warm you right up. Today’s choice is a little, light read from Rebecca J. Clark. Sometimes a little light read is just what is needed to bring the spark of joy back into your life.
