The Impossible, or so it seems...

Too cool pic from Coast to Coast am. ~An Owl, the Moon & Jupiter

I was in Immokalee, Florida doing some work and I was looking down at some equipment. A bird shadow passed across my field of vision. I knew it was an owl! I looked up on the wire and there it was. I couldn't have asked for better conditions.


Good moisture-filled evening, good and wise Big Cats all. The Kougar pulled off the impossible, or so it seemed to her. Nothing big, mind you. Merely, a replenishing of things needed kind of trip, the grocery store, etc. However, given the strained painful state of moi’s leg she had no clue if she could manage, or what the resulting damage would be to her leg.
This is nothing new in the Kougaress’s life... these types of impossible situations. Nope. She wishes it was something new. Except on one paw, she has a history of managing, somehow, to get through these times. Only, these days, they are more fast and furious in appearance.
In this Big Cat’s opinion it’s a sign of the times. More and more of us are facing the impossible. Impossible-looking situations and choices. And, honestly, they are impossible. Except, by the grace of the Divine and because of who we are, we somehow persevere and get through. Yep, true grit as in the movie by that name.
This isn’t a feel-good, pep you up kind of post, though. Since it’s this Big Cat’s experience that really doesn’t work after a certain point of repeatedly facing THE IMPOSSIBLE in life.
What does work? Moi has no idea. Truly.
Maybe, the only thing that does work during these times is TRUE GRIT. Whatever that is??? The Kougaress has no real idea what this is, either. Shruggies...
Meow... true grit... it’s worth thinking about.
Yowl, the world is heading for a showdown with itself. Injustice has taken hold to such a huge degree justice will fight back.


This was a poll at the Joyfully Reviewed web site ~ ~

Titles, Covers and decision Making...

Ever buy book on title alone? = 6.6%
Ever buy book on cover alone? = 27.9%
Ever not buy because of title? = 13.1%
Ever not buy because of cover? = 52.5%


Mew-sings ~

The Kougar found it utterly fascinating so many readers didn’t buy a book because of the cover. Wow. While moi adores cover art to the max, she would certainly purchase a book she wanted to read despite its cover art. Hmmm... meows of thought.

Authoress news and mews ~

Yep, some good penning progress on BRANDED BY THE TEXANS. Stay tuned for more snippets.

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

Part 251 ~

Sylva shivered inside with fear and excitement. She heard the slight scrape of the man’s boots as he backed out the door, shutting it. Instantly, Zeke and Ranson rushed after him, jerking the door open. “Oh no!” Sylva burst out, and began sliding out of the booth. “Stay here, Sylva,” Marina warned in a protective manner. “Big brother can take care of himself.” Grant patted her hand. She’d planted it on the table to propel herself toward the door. “Zeke will be back right quick. They just need a little conversation.” Sylva decided to stay put. “Conversation? Who was that man?”

Zeke plunged the business end of this pistol beneath the Long Walker’s ribs while Ranson twisted his arm behind his back and pressed the muzzle of his pistol against’s the man’s kidneys. “Talk,” Zeke ordered. “And not about the weather.” Cool to his core and typical of his breed, the Long Walker gave a minimal shrug with the shoulder that was still free from restraint. “I was paid to tail your friend here. That’s all I know. Figured I’d make more cashola if I discovered why he was makin’ buddy eyes at you, given your past enmity.” Zeke wasn’t buying.

You're right, Savanna, there is only so much a pep talk will help. No matter how much the "pepper" wants to make you feel better, somethings can't be resolved with rah-rah thoughts. :(
I've found True Grit to include knowing when you just need a nice hug and a willing ear. Both of which can be found with this kitten - should you need them. ;)

Wow...more than half polled based the purchase on the cover! I'm shocked! I mean yes the cover is nice, but really it is just the glass of milk... I want the cookies!!!
