I'm not much good with change, I'm really not. Change sometimes lets me down, makes me nervous, disappoints me; all or any of these reasons are what makes me wary of change. So, I reckon my inability to accept very much change probably, quite often, keeps me from trying new things. But, sometimes, on rare occasions, I throw caution to the winds and discover a sweet surprise or two from something new. This past week, and this evening, I've done just that. So let me tell you about it.
Prayers and Lies is a novel that manages from the first page to make you feel as welcome as any visitor to the South is made to feel; welcome and well fed (belly and soul). An awesome book about love of family, family secrets, and innocence lost.
My second surprise was my first viewing of Harry's Law. This is a new program that started airing last month I believe. I've always loved Kathy Bates, who plays a lawyer in the show, but I'm not so crazy about lawyer shows. For lack of anything else on TV this evening we watched back to back episodes of Harry's Law and I was hooked once she takes out her gun and shoots a rat in her office without a change of expression or anything. This gal could be my friend! I think it will be coming on around 9 on Monday evenings and I'll be watching for it.
