Halloween for Babies

The smallest grandchildren are preparing for their first Halloween. This was a weekend of previews before "Sandy" the largest hurricane in our lifetimes comes and goes, hopefully in time for kids to celebrate Halloween on Wednesday.  Schools are already closed for tomorrow and Tuesday!

This year the babies debut as "The Dark Knight" and "A Piece of Sushi." 

Is that the Bat Signal that I see!
What are these things on the ground?
Yes, I will be happy to save you.

Sushi me and soy sauce make three!

The Litigators by John Grisham

The LitigatorsThe Litigators by John Grisham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Probably one of the better openings among Grisham novels, "The Litigators" finds Harvard Law educated David Zink on the morning of his "breakdown."  David is on his way to his cubicle job as a well-paid 80 hours per week associate in a huge law firm.  As narrator, he guides us through his haphazard journey to happiness.

I love reading the thoughts of narrators that the other characters don't hear.

David takes a leap, makes a grab for happiness and embarks on the best adventure of his life.  Only taking the risk when he "hits bottom," he pursues justice in Grisham's signature style.  I am still hooked on Grisham.

Recommended with enthusiasm.
