The Devil Tomato as Omen

Pic from ~ ~

Devil Tomato

The other day I bought the 'Devil Tomato' at a roadside stand. It looked delicious, but when I ate it, it was hard, fibrous, and tasteless, as one would expect from a Devil Tomato.

--Mars Booth

Ah, yes, my KitKats, the Kougaress has a theory as to why the Devil Tomato has appeared. Besides, as a descendent of the Killer Tomatoes from that notorious spoof, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes ~ those naughty rolling bright red beasts of the plant kingdom who are determined to take over the world. Hey, could tomatoes do a worse job of running the world that those currently in power? Maybe, we ought to give them their juicy-squirting or rotten-smashing chance...
Okay, this is just a strange weird-ism that happened often to me and my sisters. We would come up with these off-the-wall ideas as teenagers, laugh our sides to aching and end up rolling on the floor, tears running from the corner of eyes... yes, my Big Kittens, moi and her sisters came up with the idea of The Killer Tomatoes about ten years before the movie came out... our solution to defeating the tomatoes terrorists... make them all into ketchup... don’t ask the Kougar to remember how this came about.
Maowww... back to the Devil Tomato as omen. The red planet, Mars, that great tomato in the solar system, is rising and will be the closest to Earth in 60,000 years. Is it on August 27th, that’s the date moi has down on her calendar... claw-googlie to find out for yourself.

Thursday, August 13th, the Kougar is blogging at THE ROMANCE STUDIO BLUE blog ~ The title: Celebrating with Sedona and Volcano. Talk about the coolest opportunity since this date is the one year anniversary for the release date of WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS, Sedona and Volcano’s love story.
Here’s the beginning of a new X-scene written for Sedona and Volcano’s first year anniversary ~

December 21, 2013 ~ THE CELEBRATION

Sedona felt like a temptress as she leaned forward and hugged Volcano tightly. The shape of his super-cycle seduced her bare thighs while the black celestial leather of his jacket wickedly teased her naked breasts. Somehow the carnal cherub had convinced her to go skinny dipping in the sky.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 228 ~

Sylva watched her cowboy’s eyes blaze with promise before he gentlemanly arranged her beside him, offering his arm. Damn, she could get used to being treated this way, as his cherished bride. Sighing inwardly, she wondered how long it would last before the luster would wear thin and she would simply be his wife. Deciding to enjoy his devoted attention while she could, Sylva moved beside him, feeling more womanly than she ever had. Womanly as in her true nature, not constrained and kept down by someone else’s idea of what a woman was supposed to be and act like.

Zeke halted where he’d hung his gun belt and gently unwound his arm from his Sylva’s hold. “Gotta strap on our protection, darlin’.” Swiftly, he placed the belt low on his hips, then buckled up and adjusted his holsters. His wife giggled nervously, tickled over something. “What got your funny bone, my beauty?” Her face reddened charmingly, reticence in her gaze. Still, raising her shoulders, she eyed him squarely. “The way you said ‘strap on our protection’.” Pausing, she drew in a determined breath. “On my Earth... well, it sounded similar to ‘putting on protection’, as in using a condom.”

The ROOM theme is on HEA and is anything about rooms - your own inner space and psyche, the rooms you inhabit in your imagination, a room that holds a pivotal place in one of your novels, the room where you write, a room where something romantic happened to you or yours or one of your characters. Your own favourite room. Whatever you fancy. It could be a perfect room that you devise and share with us.
Whatever you fancy!
Cheers, Lindsay

Most people don’t enjoy blemishes. We throw away moldy bread, agonize over pimples, and rub those little smears on the mirror. Why then, do we prefer our heroes with a few defects?
Moi’s comment mew-sings ~
Turtle Soup is a fab title and I love your premise...
Love conquers all imperfections... so it is... here's to your beautiful post.
Thursday ~ My kind of hero... by Judah Raine ~ “I suppose, when it really comes down to it, I’m a pretty independent girl.” Another fabulous blog by Judah!
Wednesday ~ Sarah Simas: Hero Worship
Sara, fantastic bloggie! I first fell for Robinhood watching that 1937 black and white film. No one has the unique dash of Errol Flynn. Course, I wondered why Maid Marion wasn't riding with him... actually, she does in a lot of stories.
We are exceptionally lucky to 'create the men of our dreams over and over' ~ You are so right. Beautifully spoken.
I HERO ~ Adrian Paul in his role as the Highlander, especially.
However, there have been many, many romance novel heroes who did it for me. Johanna Lindsey's heroes included.
Note: I thought it was Clark Gable who starred in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT.
Cary Grant is ultra sexy in TO CATCH A THIEF
