I am hand quilting. I don't get to do it as often as I would like anymore, so I truly appreciate it when I can. For me, this means sitting on the sofa (usually with a cat or two for company) quilting with either an audio book or something on the t.v. Television in the evenings at our place usually means either a hockey game or a baseball game, depending on the time of year. Regular series viewing really has been nonexistent because of this. Except for the 2 series I religiously watch - Project Runway and Top Chef. It helps that they are on later and Bravo and Lifetime plays re-runs constantly. The U.S. Open starts next week - so there is that too. There is also a Cubs game this afternoon that I am looking forward to. Delightful baseball being played in one of the greatest ballparks ever - and I can enjoy it for what it is and not have my stomach turn on every pitch - like Tiger baseball. But enough of that.
Which brings me to my new obsession - "Bones". I was ignorant of this show. Where have I BEEN! I heard the name, but didn't watch it nor any other ongoing series. When TNT starting showing re-runs in the early evenings (pre-hockey game or baseball game) we started to watch. Both Bill and I are fans. I have dvr'ed lots of episodes and we checked out dvds at the library to fill in on the ones we have missed. As Bones fans know- it really isn't about the mystery solved each week - it's about the ongoing RELATIONSHIPS.
Bill starting expounding last week on his theory about Bones and why we like it. He said something about how Booth was just like him - something about being a stand-up guy and being a patriot and something about me being like Bones because I am distant (his words!!!!) and analytical. He said we identify. He said more, but I won't bore you.
I am thinking my affection for the show is more because of this. Just sayin.......Laurie
