A Prison Break Weekly Link Round-Up

Hopefully, by the time this posts, I will have heard from the lymphedema clinic. The message the person has on her voicemail makes me wonder what's going on. Has everyone gone on vacation, gotten sick, transferred, all at the same time? Here's me, wanting to get my show on the road, but I'm being held up by unknown forces. For all I know, my insurance may be what's causing the problem. (Not that that's ever happened before. *cough*) If I haven't heard back, I'll be contacting the wound care clinic again.

On a brighter note, Denis and I spent a lovely couple of hours exploring more of the Wildlife World Zoo last Friday. This was our second time there, and we still haven't seen it all. One of the employees told Denis that it's estimated that it takes anywhere from six to seven hours to do so.

From the baby animal nursery to the giraffes, we strolled around in lots of bright sunshine and cool breezes, doing our best to wear out our camera batteries. Of course, you know that this means you'll be seeing some of my photos in future posts.

I've been posting from time to time on my Instagram account, and I decided to share the meerkat photo that you see here. It's not that great a shot, but I could stay around those meerkats all day and not get bored. I love 'em! These two kept striking that pose, and it was obvious they were watching for someone or something. I captioned the photo "Did you hear the ice cream truck? I could swear I heard the ice cream truck!" Seems that I'm not the only one who loves meerkats. That particular photo has gotten more likes than any of the others I've shared! (And by the way, they'd heard the lunch wagon.)

But it's time to mosey out to the corral to check on those links. Head 'em up! Moooove 'em out!

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. Oh, that's so great that you had the chance to visit some wildlife, Cathy! And I love meerkats, so that picture is especially appealing to me. I hope you'll continue to get some time to be out and about as you're able. And in the meantime... I'm going out and about to that ghost ship!

    1. I had a very interesting first session at the lymphedema clinic yesterday. I do believe things are looking up!

  2. Glad you had a fun zoo adventure and more to come, right? OK, that Sam Elliott thing is hilarious - loved it!

    1. Yes indeed-- more adventures! Loved Elliott's mustache!

  3. Couldn't help grinning at that commercial!

  4. A question: Did you post a link to a site with a list of 20 websites that focus on crime fiction? I either saw it here or on a Crime Reads email.

    1. It sounds very familiar, but I haven't got the time to track it down right now.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
