« My Favorite Soldier | Main | The Tragic Ending Of The Ricky Holland Case »



A week hasn't gone by that I didn't think of Ricky Holland. I remember going to watch the fireworks in Fowlerville and thinking, "I wonder if he's close enough to be able to see these." As I sat there with my then 5 year old son, holding him tightly and feeling so bad for his parents. Now that all the news stories have broke, I'd like to hold his parents so tight, around the neck.....never mind. I am disgusted and horrified to imagine what happened to him at the hands of his own parents.

Going to hold my son and tell him how much I love him.........


I didn't forget about you... I would pop in occasionally to see if you had posted. I would ask for a scarf but being in Southern Alabama, there's not much call for one.


Definitely not forgotten! Welcome back.


Not at all forgotten, Lisa. I'm so glad you're happy at your job. That's so important.


"You really need to blog more...." Sound familiar? In fact, I think you had something like that next to my link on your blog for awhile.

Now you know how I felt when people would say it to me. But now? I can say it to everyone else. :)

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
