Favorite Picture of the Week

If you know what this is, you're probably as old as dirt or at least as old as I am. Or maybe you've seen them somewhere. These are old 8mm films. When I was young, my parents video taped us and played these tapes back on a projector. There's no sound to them and so many of them are so old that there's not much left on the tapes. Years ago my mom had a lot of it transferred over to a VHS tape and I still have that. But I was going through some old boxes and found these and thought it would be fun to share. 

This is what the films look like up close. I don't have the projector anymore. That is long gone but I still have the tapes sitting in a box. I just couldn't throw them away when I found them in my mom's closet when she passed away 7 years ago. These films are 40 years old and even though I can't play them and the films might be all messed up from time, I still keep them for sentimental reasons. 

I'm guessing everyone has some old something that they don't use but still keeps in a box somewhere. 

One more thing. 

Yesterday I was a guest reviewer over at I Smell Sheep. I reviewed Leopard's Run by Christine Feehan. Damn, you guys, I had such a good time with this one. 

Book Description
Timur Amurov has one purpose in life: protect his family at all costs. With lethal skills honed from a violent upbringing, Timur is a leopard shifter who sees any newcomers as possible threats--and the petite blond barista who his sister-in-law, Evangeline, has hired to work in her bakery is definitely hiding something. While Timur still needs to determine if Ashe is an enemy, he does know that she is the only woman whose presence has ever truly calmed the beast roaring inside of him. 

Ashe Bronte is well aware she has a type: sexy, gorgeous and dangerous as hell. Despite the fact that Timur is all those things and more, Ashe is in San Antonio for reasons that do not involve getting wild with a ruthless leopard--and she cannot afford to make any mistakes. But Timur has ignited something deep within her, and even though she knows she should keep her distance, every move he makes has her craving a taste...
