Hodgepodge-less Wednesday

Joyce is taking a break this week, so no Hodgepodge.  I have a feeling she's still trying to get over that fantastic trip that she & her hubs just took!
I read 3 of Dorothea Benton Frank's books over the past few days.  Time for a book that isn't predictable!  They're quick reads, but, like I said, predictable.  I'm reading "The Good Luck of Right Now" and am having a little trouble getting into it.  I keep thinking, "What is going on with this person?  Is he Intellectually Disabled or on the Autism Spectrum?"  It's bothering me so far. It's supposed to be funny, but I'm just not seeing it yet.   I'm really hoping it gets better, especially since I'm only 13% into it.
Then there's "Orange is the New Black" 2nd season on Netflix.  Warning to anybody thinking about watching it:  there is a lot of foul language and lesbian sex in it.  So, if that's offensive to you, you probably want to skip it.  
I just saw a post about Emily Blunt, who is in a Tom Cruise film.  She also played Emily in "The Devil Wears Prada".  The post (written by a Speech Pathologist) mentions that she is also one of the "Famous People Who Stutter".  Too bad she's in a Tom Cruise film...I refuse to see any of his movies since his psychotic episode in which he jumped on Oprah's couch and brainwashed Katie.
This time last year I was in List auf Sylt, in the North Sea Isles.  On 10 June 2013, we took a boat ride out to see the seals:
I really wish I had binoculars with me!  It was pretty cool knowing that they were right there!
On 11 June, we took a walk in the mudflats with a national park ranger and an intern:

Wow.  This post turned out to be more of a Friday Fragments post, just a couple of days early!  I just don't have a "deep post" in me right now!


  1. I'm so used to having Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge! It was hard to come up with something to replace it today. I enjoyed your Wednesday fragments!!

  2. I dn't get Oprah here and don't know about Tom Cruise and what he said, but anyway I don't like this guy. I have never been on Sylt must be beautiful !

  3. I'm not a Tom Cruise fan either.. but seeing all the interviews with Emily Blunt, she's funny!

    I hate books that I just can't get into... move on - too many good books out there :)

  4. Missing Hodgepodge this morning. Yeah...I started a bood not too long ago and I just can't seem to finish it. I hate when that happens.

  5. At least you posted...I haven't done that yet. Not sure I will at this point. lol

    Love those pictures from your trip. Looks like fun.

  6. Very cool pictures of the water and the seals. Sounds like a neat place to visit.

  7. I have been taking a bit of a reading hiatus lately ... partly because I'm in a quilting mood and partly because it seems like books I've chosen have all been too difficult to get into or too predictable. I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise either.

  8. We love Orange is the new black….and funny for us, I'm watching it with my niece and her girlfriend….and LoLo! All four of us cringe at the sex scenes. Cracks us up.
    I saw some seals last weekend. :)
