The Silent Hour by Michael Koryta
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The audio book version was not kind to this complex mystery. Its many plot turns and twists are rendered laborious by a plodding, melodramatic narration.

My quilt, "The Pond," has been accepted for entry into the Tri-State Quilt Competition. It will be displayed March 4-7, 2010, at The Quilt Fest of New Jersey VI to be held at the Garden State Exhibit Center, 50 Atrium Drive, Somerset, NJ 08873.
This is my first venture into quilt competition. I hope the judges' critique will help me to improve my skills.
Here is an album of my quilts to date.

The most loving kitty and a member of our family. She will be missed.
Update 11/15/2010. Maria's Story.
Tony mentioned that the guys in the metal shop were feeding a stray black kitten. He wondered if he should bring it home to make friends with Jackie, who was giving her stepfather a rough road to travel. I think I said no. Anyway, I arrived home from shopping with Bobby to find Jackie and Tony using one of my best towels to dry off a kitten. The bathroom was a mess. The two of them were thrilled because they gave the kitten a bath revealing that she was a tabby when they thought she was black. Bobby was leaving for his first year at USC, so we decided the kitten would be his - a playful link to home. He named her Maria. She was affectionate, unflappable, even-tempered, and mature beyond her years. She scoffed at the antics of "lesser" cats and remained haughty until she wanted attention. She was a great companion. She is missed.
