If I Were a Mobster

The lovely Chrys Fey has a new book out and to celebrate it, she is hosting a blog hop: 

If I were a Mobster...

I'd never have to wait in line at a restaurant.

People wouldn't flip me off when I zone out at red lights. 

I'd have goons to carry my bags in the mall. 

My mini-van would be tripped out with blackened windows and a large flat screen TV. 

I'd never have to run another pesky errand. I'd have people on my payroll for that.

And for their help, I'd give them a generous 401K and a sweet vacation package... maybe throw in some free rooms at one of the luxury resorts I should probably have in my gangster portfolio. 

Not very mobsterish? Well, I think it's time to bring a softer touch to the syndicate.

Top notch bingo parlors.

Drug deals for prescription drugs to help lower costs.

Maybe use my hitmen to help old ladies deal with rude phone companies and force insurance companies to lower their deductibles.

Oh, and I'd offer a protection service with a different sort of spin, instead of shake-downs, I'd operate 
Uber Rent-a-Goon. 

Afraid to walk home from the library? Rent a goon. 

Harassing day at the DMV? Rent two goons. One to take care of the worker; one to fetch chocolate.

Boyfriend turned into a stalker? Go for the month-long goon/ leg breaker rental. 

The only problem with being a mobster is that I don't like pain, either to give it or receive it.

Perhaps there is room in the crime family for a mobster who wields power with uplifting, motivational speechesrrather than spilled blood? 

No? Well then, I guess I'll just read Chrys's book and leave the mob stuff to the criminal master minds. 

How about you? What kind of mob boss would you be? 


Blake Herro is a cop in the Cleveland Police Force. Ever since he was a child he wanted to do right by the city he loved by cleaning up the streets and protecting its citizens. Red, a notorious mobster, has other plans.

On a bitter December night, ten police officers are drawn into a trap and killed by Red’s followers. Blake wants to bring down the Mob to avenge his fallen brothers and to prevent other cops from being murdered. Except the only way he can do that is by infiltrating the Mob.

Every minute he’s with these mobsters he’s in danger. Around every corner lies the threat of coming face to face with a gun. Will he make it out of the Mob alive or will he be their next victim?

Caleb, Norah, and Stacey
Talk about a good thing!!    

My two nieces (Kari and Stacey) and my sister (Lisa) bought my son a plane ticket to come in from New York for our Tacotober celebration!

Every October, we have tacos and watch scary movies. I complained to my sister it just wasn't going to be the same without Caleb. He loves Tacotober! I suggested we postpone it. My heart just wasn't in it.

Last week, Stacey asked me if I'd go with her to the airport to pick up a friend of ours, Ricky. So, we headed off to Pittsburgh to pick up Ricky. At the airport, I was playing eye-spy with Norah when someone tapped me on my shoulder. I figured it was Ricky, so I turned around. The first thought through my head? Ricky sure does look like Caleb. Then it dawned on me- it was Caleb!

My little boy (sort of) is home for the weekend thanks to one of the best sisters ever and her daughters,
