Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:
GoodreadsHere is an email we got from Goodreads:
On behalf of the Goodreads team, I want to say thank you. You’re in the top 1% of reviewers on Goodreads! Your many thoughtful book reviews help make us a vibrant place for book lovers.
Last week I forgot to share our favorite reads for July. I'm sure you all are wondering, right? Anyway, Gerard's was a YA science fiction, Proxy and mine, a collection of mail-order bride novellas by four different authors: A Bride For All Seasons. You can click the links to see our reviews.
Yum YumGood news, Yum Yum seems to be feeling better. This cat needs surgery and Tim is asking bloggers to help by chipping in. He is about half way to what he needs. Here is an update: Yum Yum Update 8/5. Can you help?
Street CatNot at all surprised this guy got more donations when Bob, the street cat, was with him! We have his book on order from our library!

ToothbrushesI read this week that people should replace their toothbrush every three to four months. I know we don't come anywhere close to this. Do you?
Sleeping CouplesJust heard on a morning news show that to get a restful nights sleep with a partner who snores or tosses and turns, 40% of couples sleep in separate beds! I was surprised it was such a high percentage. I tend to snore if I sleep on my back and Gerard tosses and turns, bouncing the bed but usually it's just when he first comes to bed. Sometimes I feel like I'm on a boat but so far we have both managed to weather through and stay together.

BaseballThis is an exciting season with so many hot teams, unfortunately, the Indians are now on a 4-game losing streak thanks to Detroit, putting the tribe 7 games behind. I am disappointed, but the Indians played tough the first three games, the third going 14 innings! Boston is on a roll too which is my husband's favorite team so that is good. I hope the Indians will bounce back! Francona (Indians Manager) Reflects on Tough Series. Here is a silly video Gerard made with two of our stuffed animals, Leo and Benny in honor of the Tigers win:
