Hell's Corner: The Camel Club Series, Book 5Hell's Corner: The Camel Club Series, Book 5 by David Baldacci

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brand new and even better than the previous entries in this series, if that is even possible, Hell's Corner is the nickname among the various security agencies in Washington, D.C., for a park where jurisdictions are very complicated. The tale begins with an explosion and another explosion brings the plot to its climax.  Oliver is assisted in this one by his friends and a newcomer, MI5 agent Mary Chapman.
A really good read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really love this group of misfits!  On the fringes in Washington, D.C., conspiracies occupy their thoughts and activities. And, they are so capable, each contributing unique skills.  Are they crazy?  Maybe a little.  However, they do stumble upon a plot that kept me on the edge of my seat for several days.  I wish that I had read this first in the series first.

School Project

I had not expected to do another school project after all of these years.  However, Grace's pre-school initiated a school-wide project for each family to spend some time together creating a family crest. Rob, Grace and I spent the afternoon creating this one. Grace was very excited to have homework!  Rob and I...not so much :-)

 Anyhow, it turned out well.  We are exhausted.  Grace is inexhaustible.  Nice though, when we finished Rob confessed a new respect for my help with the many projects he remembered when he and Jackie were kids. That was worth an afternoon of cutting and pasting.

Pancake Fun

These are my new "Star Wars" pancake molds :-)
I have been anxious to try them out.  And, lucky for me (not so much for Rob), Rob now has the bronchitis and sinus infections from which I am recovering so I decided to make him smile this morning with "Star Wars" pancakes!  Mission accomplished :-)
      Hint:  If you use these molds, make the batter thin and don't forget to pull the handles to the upright position before heating them up on the griddle.  I speak from experience.
      Next, "Star Wars" grilled cheese sandwiches and a nice thick tomato soup. Yum!
