King & Maxwell

King and Maxwell (Sean King & Michelle Maxwell, #6)King and Maxwell by David Baldacci

From the Goodreads website: "It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father . . . after his supposed death.

Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target?

Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler--though they may pay for it with their lives.

Another fine book by David Baldacci, especially for airplane reading.  I keep wondering when King and Maxwell are going to get together, but I suppose it would ruin their partnership.  



A little more work on the Nametag.


I've got the ANG finished and a start on my name.



I've been away for awhile on a most amazing vacation to the Galapagos Islands and Peru.  We spent our first week on the M/Y Grace sailing from island to island.

There were 15 of us tourists and about that many crew members including our guide, activities director, and chef.  It was quite comfortable and I only had one rocky night but it was easily taken care of with dramamine and bed.


Here we are on Santa Fe Island with a sea lion.

 We have Josh and David in the back row and Nicole, me, and Jer in the front row.  The sea lion could care less about us.


Each day included two hikes and a snorkel trip or two snorkel trips and a hike.  We saw lots of iguanas, 


and cranky iguanas fighting over rock space.

Red footed boobies.

This pile of fluff is a baby boobie.


 Lots of sea lions napping on the beach

 Cute little yellow bird


Jer swimming with a cool fish.  This picture was taken by our guide, Alex. 



and David and me with a land tortise 

It was a pretty awesome week.


Home Stretch

I am so close to being finished with this.

The last yarn is another wonderful Madeline Tosh in Calligraphy.  My goal is to have it finished by Super Bowl weekend and I can give it to baby Winry's grandpa so he can deliver it to her.


Crazy Batik

I'm so close to done.  I have to attach binding, but first I have to make the binding.


I also have a thousand or so threads to bury.  Lucky for me I have a guild retreat coming up.  Perfect project.
