I love a great who-dunnit mystery! Last night we went with friends Gabe and Jeannie to the Alley Theatre downtown to see Agatha Christie's The Unexpected Guest. We loved it. The acting was superb, our seats were fantastic and the plot kept us all stumped...except for my husband, who now is ready to take me on in a game of Clue even though I'm known to be the champion Clue player in our family.
While in my vehicle, I love listening to audio books. Currently I am enjoying C.K Chesterton's The Innocence of Father Brown. I am now hooked, and will have to follow up with the multitude of other Father Brown stories. Every time I like an author's work, I want to read everything he ever wrote! Chesterton can really turn a phrase, so to speak. Some of his descriptions are so succinct that I am logging them to recall later! His stories make me think. He works through many moral issues, and handles them excellently. I may rate these stories right up there with my friend, Sherlock Holmes!
On the Hallmark channel, my husband and I are enjoying the Murder She Wrote mystery dramas with Angela Lansbury. Recognizing so many former stars with roles in these mysteries is a treat. The last episode we watched had Haley Mills, who looked exceptionally great as an older lady, and was just as charming as when a young girl in Pollyanna. One thing we appreciate is that we do not have to worry about "yuck" coming into our home with this series. These who-dunnits are basically clean.
July 15 was our 36th wedding anniversary. To celebrate, daughter Rebekah and son-in-law Nick took us via limousine to Kemah. (Actually it was a faux limo, set up in their van with a curtain, table, flowers, fine chocolate, fruit, chilled drinks, soft music and beautifully wrapped gifts. WE FELT PAMPERED AND LOVED!) In Kemah we went to the Murder by Chocolate Dinner Theater.
