I thought it would be fun to read this series, since there is a British TV show based on it that looks interesting. But after reading the following, I'm done: Hildegard Staunton was paler than he remembered from her husband's funeral. Her short hair was blonde and curly; her eyes were large and green. Her eyebrows were pencil-thin and she wore no lipstick; as a result, her face looked as if her feelings had been washed away. So, it's only possible to read feelings on a woman's face if she's wearing lipstick? I had no idea! If the book had been written in the '50s or something, I probably could have overlooked this, but no, it was published in 2012. I may be overreacting, but there's a lot of good stuff to read and this time, I choose not to spend my time on something that implies that women absolutely must wear makeup or they can't get along in society.

The Teton Valley News is our local small-town weekly newspaper covering primarily Teton County, Idaho and Alta, Wyoming. For our family the consistently most interesting section is the Sheriff’s Log report. This week contains an entry that reminds me why we often enjoy it: January 8 — A driver south of Victor reported seeing what appeared to be a fist fight taking place on the side of the highway.

They had given each other enthusiastic high fives at one point, which may have been misinterpreted by the passing driver as an exchange of blows. 😆
