My supper yesterday was tuna casserole, a baked potato, green peas, and Mexican corn. It was delicious. I may just have this for Thanksgiving as I don’t tend to be conventional.
I think that was the last of the peas, so maybe green beans? And instead of a pumpkin pie, I think I’ll bake a chocolate cake.
Yes, that sounds good. Haven’t baked a chocolate cake in a long time.
I am now reading “The Rackateer” by John Grisham. It is a book he published in 2013, but I had not read it. John Grisham does have that talent that moves a story along at a fast clip.
Only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett became number five. His body was found in his remote cabin along with his young secretary.
This was way off the beaten path, so there were no witnesses. The large and extremely secure safe was open and emptied.
There’s only one man, aside from the killer, who knows who killed Judge Fawcett and why. But Malcolm Bannister currently resides in a Federal Prison Camp in Maryland. The killer was once at this federal camp before he escaped, and he had told Bannister of his intentions.
Malcolm Bannister is a former attorney who was sent to prison because it was assumed that he knew about a client’s crime. He inadvertently helped his client with paperwork that turned out to be illegal. And he went to prison an innocent man.
Pressure is on to find the killer of the federal judge and there are no leads.
He has served five years of a ten-year sentence. Malcolm figures this might be his only get-out-of-prison pass. So he has the FBI contacted with a deal he will offer to make with them.
He will tell them who killed the judge and his mistress in exchange for his freedom and the $150,000 reward money. Plus be put into witness protection for his safety.
My Right Ankle & Left Knee:
First, it was my left knee hurting from hobbling around to protect my sore left ankle. And now it’s also my ankle. Maybe from trying to protect my knee. I did order one of those knee compression sleeves but it hasn’t arrived yet.
I always wear a compression sleeve on my ankle.
All I know is I got up out of my chair the other day and nearly fell over from the pain in my right ankle.
So now I’m hobbling around on both my left and right leg. Hopefully, this will get resolved soon.
Isn’t it always something? I’m also sitting here with an ice pack on my back. I do this every morning to try and work the stiffness out.
Well, that’s because getting old is not fun. But you persevere and keep going. That’s just part of life.
