A Drip, Drip, Drip Weekly Link Round-Up

It's been a weird spring here in the Valley of the Sun. We seem to be getting our winter rains now-- almost as though their flights were delayed at the airport. As I write this, this is the second day in a row it's been overcast, dismal, and raining. Good weather to stay inside with a good book, but alas, I've had to hie off to the clinic.

Speaking of the clinic, I'm doing very well and get a month's respite from my twice-weekly visits. This means that Denis and I get to book all sorts of appointments that have been languishing while I've been undergoing therapy. I'm hoping that we'll be able to get a day or two to do something fun, too.

I'm going to mosey out to the corral to check on the links, and then I'm heading back inside to do some reading. I hope I can avoid all the puddles!

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 safeguard your health by staying at home with a good book!


  1. We've had rain this week, too, Cathy. On the one hand, I'm very glad on a number of levels, because we do need it. On the other, it is a little late for the winter rain. But that's an excuse to stay in and read... :-) Good to hear you're making healing progress! Now, I've got a 17th-century passageway to explore...

    1. Three days in a row of substantial (for the desert) rain, and by the look of the clouds right now, day number four will soon commence. I have a couple of reviews to write and then it's Reading Time!

  2. So glad that you're doing well. Looking forward to hearing about what you do on your day or two of fun plans!

    1. So am I! We have a lot of have-to appointments that take precedence, however.

  3. maude Collins, the inspiration for Lily Ross. She must have been so strong and independent to be a woman sheriff in Ohio in the 1920s, a tough time for many people, as Jess Montgomery explains in her excellent books.
    Oh, about Betty Webb, her father sounded like quite a character. My father had an Uncle George who was a bootlegger, bookie and participated in the sting shown in the film of that name. He had a twinkle in his blue eyes, I remember. And he was in love with two women for years, his spouse and someone else in his town. (I had to figure that one out while a teenager.)
    I would wager that crime and noncrime fiction are as good as self-help books. Nothing like a good work of fiction.

    1. I'll take crime fiction any day over self-help!

  4. Nothing distracts a reader like crime fiction!
