This morning Hubby wanted to watch Netflix. We use the Wii for that feature.
Of course, you have to have the controller to use it. And where wasw the controller?
That was the question. I looked all over the living room and in all the not necessarily logical places.
Finally in utter frustration I posted on Facebook “if anyone knows what happened to the Wii controller – please let me know! I have turned two rooms over hunting it”.
Of course, there were several responses, mostly alluding to furniture, grandkids or the animals…
Finally one mentioned the toybox, so I decided to dig through that.
It was in the toy box, stuffed inside a parrots body.
Major surgery was not required. 😉 Now Hubby is scrolling happily trying to find a movie that suits him.

The citizens of the small Mennonite community of Kingdom, Kansas are being plagued. Fear is growing.
After receiving a warning to be ‘careful’, quilt shop owner, Hope Kauffman is run off the road. Shaken and scared, she is relieved when neighbor Jonathon Wiese arrives on the scene in his truck to help her home.
Her attraction to Jonathon grows and she begins to question her engagement to pacifist Ebbie Miller.
Jonathon is trying to promote the church elders into taking a stand.
When a member ofthe community is murdered and buildings set on fire, people begin to wonder why the local sheriff keeps finding excuses that all these happenings are accidental.
Is it someone outside the community, or one of their own?
How do the Mennonites choose to protect themselves, will they depend on God’s promises, or take matters into their own hands?
This is a good read, with a touch of romance, plenty of mysterious happeings and a surprising ending.
Nancy Mehl’s characters ring true, the story keeps you on edge all the way.
Bethany House Publishing http://bakerpublishinggroup.com/bethanyhouse provided me with a copy of this book for review purposes. The opinion provided is strictly my own.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars and will be looking for more of Nancy Mehl’s books in the future.

What is it?

I have never before seen anything like this in my wanderings through the local fields and forests

It stands alone. I did not see any others like it.

I found the little layered appendages quite fascinating. I would like to know what it is.
