Tater’s Week in Review 3/18/23

It was a pretty standard week for me. I didn’t watch a movie, I finished one book, and I spent a lot of time trying to keep my DVR from getting so full it started deleting shows. That was made more complicated by the start of March Madness.


Monday was my daughter’s birthday. We went out to dinner at The Hideaway to celebrate. They have so much good food it’s always hard to decide what to order. I’m still not sure I made the right decision.

It was so windy Tuesday that they canceled all mounted lessons so my barn shift turned out to be much easier than expected.

I had to leave the house at 6 AM Thursday morning to drive my daughter to the airport, We have an airport 20 minutes or so from our house but she book flights to and from one that requires a drive through the DC area.

I’m the only person in my family who has not traveled in 2023. I feel left out.


We watched the season premiere of Ted Lasso on Wednesday. There was a review in the Washington Post that said the problem with this season is that it is the same show it has been in the past two seasons. I don’t see that as a negative. We don’t need Ted Lasso to be anything but Ted Lasso. That’s why we love it.

I watched basketball from noon until I fell asleep on the couch the past two days and plan to do the same the next two days.

Kelly McCreary has announced she is leaving Grey’s Anatomy. April 13 will be her last episode.

Alison Hammond has been announced as Matt Lucas’ replacement on The Great British Bake Off. I’m not familiar with her.

I’ve been told that Three Pines was canceled. I know a few people who watch it. I’m sure they aren’t happy.


I finished one book this week.

Unnatural History by Jonathan Kellerman – According to Goodreads, this is #38 in the Alex Delaware series.

In this one, Milo asks Alex to help with the case of a murdered photographer. The photographer was the son of a reclusive billionaire and had just finished a series of photos of the homeless where he gave them a makeover and dressed them up as their fantasy selves. Did one of them return to rob him after he flashed too much cash? Was his murder related to his dad? Did another sibling take him out to get a bigger piece of the eventual inheritance? All of these are investigated and connected in an unexpected way.

I have read all of the books featuring Milo and Alex and I still love them. I like the friendship and mutual respect in the partnership. I love that they are both in stable relationships. I love that they solve the crimes through hard and sometimes dull work and not flashy gunfights and cartoonish violence. It is a very well done, intelligent mystery.

On Deck

I have Violent Night on DVD from the library.

I will be watching a lot more basketball today, tomorrow, and next week.

We will watch Ted Lasso as soon as we can after the next episode is released.

I think we get to watch Survivor live again this week.

I am currently reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.
