Black and White Tuesday


We purchased, or should I say MGW purchased,

these cups/mugs…
at Johannesburg airport three or four years ago.

 Not just cups but a matching vase…

which was nicely decorated with some form water plant.

In Amsterdam last year we came upon

this display of tea cups in a coffee shop.



Hope you enjoyed.



Book Review-The-Arraignment

The Arraignment

(Paul Madriani #7)

Steve Martini


The Arraignment is the seventh in the Paul Madriani series written by Steve Martini and is another fast paced story revolving around a lawyer friend of Paul Madriani.

A drive by shooting is central to the plot and most of the story is spent contacting dubious characters who may be held responsible for the shooting. As with all good books even some of the apparently ‘good guys’ have a shady side to them.

A wife, an ex-wife and a child neither of the aforementioned know of all adds to the The Arraignment’s plot.

To say much more will give away too much of the plot. The Arraignment is as good as any other Steve Martini book I have read. If you have not read a Steve Martini book previously, and enjoy the crime genre, I would recommend you try some of Steve Martini’s books.

In my opinion the Paul Madriani series does not need to be read in sequence. Others may disagree. I have read number 14 and now number 7 in the series. I have also read The List which is not part of this series and all have scored four stars from me.
