Fifty Shades of Grey

Yes it is a book and yes I knew the theme of the book before I made the purchase. I did ask a friend to read the 1st chapter of the book, you can on Amazon, and tell me what he thought was the theme of the book. I haven't heard back from this guy but I will give it a few more days.  This book is a NY Times Bestseller probably because of the erotic nature of the book.  My question to the author how did she write the book without first hand knowledge of the theme. 
I finished the book in a couple of days and was pleased the female character, Ana, had the courage to leave a relationship that made her feel different, creating a personality that she wasn't, even though she loved the guy.  I really like Ana, her character showed courage and strength.

Fifty Shades Darker is the 2nd book in the series. I like the character so much I had to read the 2nd book in the trilogy. After reading the opening pages I am disappointed in Ana. What happened to her courage and strength?? I had to put the book down for now, I hope Ana finds her strength and follow what she knows is right for herself.
I won't give up the theme of the books, go to Amazon read the 1st and 2nd chapters, find out for yourself.

Let me know what you think.

cotton panties

I was in Manhattan about 10 days. I was with family eating at Blue Smoke, its a jazz barbeque restaurant. Walking back to Penn Station, my sons and friends began talking about how wet their behinds were, really guys. First I told them that was not good conversation with me and girlfriends around, they laughed and said Ohhh, Mom! When my sons were growing up it seemed my home was home central for the kids on the block. But lets get back to wet behinds, when I told them they should be wearing cotton briefs during the extreme heat in NY . That got a good laugh from everyone. I guess talking about briefs and panties with family is taboo! What a group of kids. They are all family maybe not by blood but family anyway.

I have personally been wearing more cotton panties then my beautiful soft nylon, micro fabric panties.  The heat on the east coast is just unbelievable, 90+ days and several over 100+. Then wicked storms took out the power for millions. Cotton is the way to go until the temps reduce enough to enjoy my beautiful panties and bra sets.
