Computers... love 'em and hate 'em...

Pic from Coast to Coast am ~

Discolored Sun

8/31/2009, 7 AM-- I walked out from my house and saw the most amazing coloration of the sun I have ever seen! The desert is choked with smoke from the fires burning in Los Angeles and ash falls from above [about an hour away]. Think I'll stay inside today.

Late evening purrs, my loveliest KitKats, the Kougar is too worn out to rant and roar over her lack of internet access today. What the problem is, moi has no real clue.
It may be time to take the tower in for de-bugging and a good cleaning.
Oh, latest news and mews ~ it appears this Big Cat has been saved, since she was finally able to access Coast to Coast via IE.
Truth and rumbly mumby cursing... only, the Firefox browser has, at least, given moi some spotty access.
Looks like Los Angeles is in the frying pan right now with all the wildfires threatening the city. Blessings to all those who are there. I’d get out if I were you. The smoke is seriously harming a lot people’s lungs.
The Baja area of Mexico is under a serious Hurricane warning and might be getting hit right now. Bless everyone there.

So, the Kougar ‘might’ be able to post her SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS bloggie for Tuesday. Though, it looks like no bull will be included. Yep, that’s no bull. Moi was up to her neck managing other problems and having limited access to the web didn’t help.
However, she did get quite a bit done on editing STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME... yay and lots of glad meows!

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 246 ~

Sylva desperately wanted to focus on Zeke, what was happening. However, Marina’s speculative gaze held her attention. “Big brother is holding out on us. Is it for a good reason?” Deciding Marina had given her a viable option, Sylva nodded and offered, “It is.” Grant palmed his wife’s forearm gently. “Leave it alone for now, precious.” His tone was laid back, yet firm. “Let’s get some grub going. Make everything look normal.” Marina leaned against her husband, petite against his imposing frame. “You’re right, lover. Would you like a menu, Sylva?” Marina smiled graciously. “I don’t see one.” Sylva looked again.

Zeke didn’t lessen his ready-to-shoot position. “Ranson, buddy boy, is it safe to give me the details here?” Zeke narrowed his gaze, searching for any telltale signs that he was about to be bushwacked, as Ranson slowly turned around to face him. In a natural movement, Ranson showed him his empty hands. “Safe as anywhere. Your bride was frequency-recognized as they say. Those who are interested in her ‘unusual’ abilities locked onto her soon after she crossed into our world. It’s a new technology,” Ranson explained at Zeke’s questioning gaze. “How new?” Damn, if he didn’t feel sliced up inside.

Moi’s comment mew-sings ~
Ah, Ricardo, you are the man. And you express your admiration and love for your Cynthia in such a masculine and beautiful way. I am in awe of your penning prowess.
I must confess, though, the men whose stories I write would have fallen in love with Starr.
However, as is the way of life upon this wonderful spinning world, we all choose to our own pleasure and satisfaction. And so it is now.
May love always be yours.

~sigh~ Those darn computers! So wonderful for we writers, but hell on our creative process... I'm just not savvy enough to deal with major computer problems. :(

Yay that you have been able to work through your edits though! Any idea what release date they are shooting for? ~rubbing my hands together excitedly!~

It would be nice if folks could let the newlyweds have a honeymoon before they get up to no good.

Zeke already loves his Sylva, so knowing she's likely to attract kidnappers is tearing him apart I'll bet.
As always, wonderful Savanna. Thanks for the continuiing story.
