9. You are soooo funny
Had a good time, but got very tired. Was it my imagination or are the quilters getting younger, maybe I'm getting older?

15. Me too....
I read them all. I hate that he died.

You might try some Charlie Moon, a Ute Indian in Colorado, written by James D. Doss.

He has some of the stuff that Hillerman wrote about - the dances, legends, etc., but with a bit more humour. There's at least one laugh in every book but the first, and some weird plots.

Moon, friend Scott Paris, and his Aunt Daisy are characters in my favorite series.

18. DANGEROUS UNDERTAKING by Mark de Castrique
About Barry Clayton, a cop who has to leave his job in Charlotte to help take care of the family business in Gainsboro - undertaking - because his dad got Alzheimer's and his mother needs help with him and the business... father fairly young - only 55. Main characters all likable.

Clayton becomes involved with helping the sheriff solve some crimes. I'm almost at the end of the book (around 200 pp). Not bad, will probably catch the next one.

This takes place in North Carolina mountains.
