The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!
I hope you had a wonderful week!
For the most part, I had a pleasant week. A blog tour had a stressful moment near the end of the week, but I shook it off, pushed away from the computer and got myself lost in a book.
I have watched Days of Our Lives for over 40 years. The episodes last Wednesday and Thursday had me crying like a baby. Wednesday’s heartwarming/breaking episode led up to Thursday’s tribute to Caroline Brady. The actress who played her, Peggy McCay, passed away at the age of 90 back in October. The soap opera films more than 6 months ahead of time so it took writers time to create the storyline would allow fans and her t.v family a chance to say goodbye. The writer’s and actors did an excellent job. Peggy passed away just a few weeks after her television husband Frank Parker. Shawn Brady had already passed away on the show when the actor retired. Her character had been offscreen, living with her daughter in California, for quite a while but was mentioned often. She first appeared on the show on February 1983, and a been a fan favorite ever since. The final scene of Thursday’s show has Caroline looking in the window of her Brady Pub watching her family celebrate her life and saying good-bye and then it shows Shawn stepping into the shot and wrapping his arm around her shoulders. So moving and touching I have tears in my eyes just writing this.
Fun Fact: Frank and I share a birthday – July 1.
The best part of my week was yesterday when I got out of the house and down the highway to watch granddaughter Natalie’s softball game. At 7 years old, there are only 6 girls on a team, everyone gets 1 at-bat every inning, balls are pitched by a machine or set on a tee, no score is kept and they play for about an hour. The girl’s hitting has really improved since last year. Natalie had 1 single and 2 doubles (the ball made it out of the infield). We are going again next week and then bringing her home with us for the weekend. This time Kaden ended up coming home with us. He will probably stay until Monday or Tuesday or until we need a break from each other 😆
We also stopped by for a quick visit with my mother-in-law. I just don’t get to see her enough.
