Cardinal Girls

A rare white elephant seal has been caught on camera. The creature, spotted on a sub-Antarctic beach, is similar to an albino but has normal coloring in its eyes. More at BBC news.

Cool beans, my Sassy Kats, HER INSATIABLE DARK HEROES is still at #4 on Siren-Bookstrand’s bestseller list... roaring-bellow like a boar for four *it rhymes, please forgive*
Yep-meow, the Kougar just gutted up and had a look... MUCHO KISSES AND THANKS to everyone who has purchased and rated moi’s bookie... the FIVES are still winning... purring-yay!

Oh my darling Big KitKats, when the Kougar traveled down to her mailbox she disturbed a beautiful girl cardinal, who flew in front of her for a time. Then another smaller girl cardinal flew by. They were so tingly-utterly adorable.
Later, moi found out her mommy had seen three hawks circling the pasture in the late morning.
Tired droopy eyes tonight, my Big Kittens, probably because moi got some more tomato plants in the ground in her tiny evolving garden.
Hmmm... my precious Big Cats, the Kougaress has a nasty feeling something huge is about to occur on the world stage, or huge in the sense of being exclusively covered by the big media types.
If this is in the works, moi does not know the timetable ~ and this Big Cat girl is NOT looking forward to whatever it is... IF it does occur.
There have been a couple of earthquakes in the LA region of California. Though, that might not be what shows up... still California, as a state does not have a stable energy, right now.
Wanted dead or alive... those are the lyrics of a bumper song on Coast-to-Coastam, nighttime radio... currently playing...
Synchronicity strikes! Moi was just hunting for a snippet from BRANDED BY THE TEXANS... and, yep, Kylie is feeling wanted dead or alive...

Heading outside, she surveyed her surroundings as she moved to her car. A tall broad-shouldered man in a tan Western suit, complete with bolo, gassed up what looked like a Caddy. Sidling in front of her pump, Kylie checked out the directions, then unscrewed her gas cap.
“Need some assistance, ma’am?” the Caddy Cowboy asked politely. He tipped his impressive cream-colored Stetson as Kylie met his gaze. “I can fill ‘er up in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.”
Kylie blinked at the old phrase he’d used. “Thanks. I think I can handle it.”
“It’s, okay, ma’am, I’m not moving in on another man’s territory. Happily married myself.” He extended his hand flashing a wide gold band on his ring finger. “Mabel wouldn’t be happy if she knew I didn’t give you a hand.”
Kylie knew when she’d been defeated in a good way. She gave a nod and stepped back. “Thanks.” She was about to say her name again, but realized she shouldn’t be doing that anymore. In fact, she probably needed to decide on another name, and get used to it fast.
With smooth efficiency, he handled the nozzle gassing up her car. “There ya go, little lady. And don’t you worry, you’ll be married in no time.” He screwed her gas cap back on. “Come to Texas from the eastern states?” he asked.
Kylie’s brain felt like it spun, and she saw the image of whirling clothes inside a dryer. Where had that come from -- married in no time? Still, she’d better go with the flow. “I came from the east. Does it show a lot?”
“Yer accent, mostly. But we have a few ladies that make it across the border the way you have, lookin’ for a better life.”
Border? “I am looking for a better way of life.”
Turning on his boot heel, he tipped his hat again. “It’s right around the corner I’m bettin’, little lady.”

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues....

Part 144 ~

Sylva faced Lydia, wanting the truth. It wasn’t that she objected, she simply wanted to know, felt compelled to know. “I offered to be with you because I know what it’s like to arrive from another Earth dimension.” Lydia’s gaze darkened to a deep seriousness. “I don’t think we came from the same dimension.” Sylva cocked her head, intrigued to say the least. “Why do you say that?” she asked. Lydia noticeably swallowed. “No one looks like you.” Sylva blinked furiously. “Okaaay... no one?” Lydia shook her head slowly. “In my Earth dimension there are only people with dark-colored hair.”

Zeke raised his filled shot glass in a salute. “A round a drinks for everyone,” he called out, then tossed down the Stud Black. “Your bride is going to be one happy woman,” Grayson ribbed using his most exaggerated drawl. “I aim to make her the happiest bride that’s ever been,” Zeke returned. Dang, he itched like crazy wild to get back to his Sylva. Decisively, he set the glass down on the bar. “Later, fellas.” Zeke strode for the door impatiently. “Not so fast, you black-hearted sidewinder.” Zeke instantly recognized Jimmy’s voice. Gradually he turned to face Merlinda’s brother.

Oh no, ~hiss~ to nasty feelings, I don't like those... I do hope your big cat instincts are off on this one as we all have so much to deal with already.

Puuu-fect snippet... What border [i]did[/i] Kylie step across... ;-)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I hope my intuition is off base too!!! Plus, everything is so fluid it's really hard to 'sense' it correctly for me. This one just came up fairly strong... so, we'll see...

Kylie has crossed the border into the Three Star Republic of Texas...
