 That detail caught Dad's attention.

 A semi thundered by, breaking wind like a fat man. Shorty Winsome hunched his shoulders before he slid sideways between two enormous eucalyptus trunks, down into the bark-and-trash-filled gully, all kinds of crap getting into his shoes. Better no one saw him. The cops'd yank him off the highway, any excuse. Didn't like hobos out here near heavy traffic.

  15. AHHHHH! Instagram! I will definitely have to check in on Instagram from time to time with my 56 posts. That's just such a fun way to share!

    I haven't heard of this book, but that cover is something else. I'll have to look it up and see if it's something that I want to read.

    Thanks for adding me to the linky! :)

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
