Black Friday, it got this Big Cat...

Yep, darling risque felines, the Kougar generally ignores Black Friday... at the last minute, though, she got, well yowl... got. Caught in the trap of hyper commercialism. Yes, meow, a bit of over drama, since she purchased something she’d been wanting to get for a long time, ever since she learned about it. Not something sexy or vain, but utilitarian. Not that the Kougaress is against the sexy or vain good things in life... not *love-those-things* at all.
For over a decade moi has been allergic or sensitive to chlorine, bleach to some. Anaphylactic shock type of sensitive. Could keel over type of sensitive. Unfortunately, where moi lives, the water company apparently believes huge doses of chlorine are the answer to every purification problem. Or, else they got a special deal on the stuff.
While moi can drink the purified water she purchases, still, given all that water is used for, washing the clothes, etc. ~ the stuff permeates the house because it evaporates out of water and off the clothes. Heck, no need to put any chlorine in the water moi has stored up over the years. It’s still crystal clear from the three years past.
So, the purchase ~ an Ecoloblue drinking water machine that was on special for Black Friday. It’s a super duper dehumidifier that has so many water purifying filters on it, the Kougaress didn’t bother counting. However, it’s takes nasty stuff like chlorine out of the water... and since, it takes the water out of the air, hopefully the chlorine will also be reduced significantly. Because this Big Cat is icky itchy from having done her wash, and is convinced the chlorine-saturated air is contributing to the skin condition on her leg.
No, not a fun or romantic topic, however if this Big Cat’s solutions help anyone else, then that’s what matters.


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 335 ~

Sylva hadn’t meant to speak her thoughts that way. But there they were, hanging in the air between them. Not that she didn’t value honesty and open communication in a relationship, especially marriage... however, they were in the initial stages of getting to know one another. Her cowboy husband smiled so wickedly she gasped in a breath. “What?” she breathed out. “If I ever turn that cold, a grave will be callin’ my name. Sylva, if I’ve got ‘wearin’ down’ thoughts on my mind, or I wore myself out working the ranch, I’ll let you know it’s not you, darlin’.”

Zeke stroked her soft flushed cheek with his thumb as she nodded her understanding. His woman. “It’ll take time,” she murmured. “Like we’ve talked about. Just be patient with me.” Zeke stole a quick kiss from her sumptuous lips, then gazed into her eyes. “I think it might be the other way ‘round. I’ll probably need some patient handling. Or, you could just throw something at me.” She smiled in a lovely tantalizing way, tripping his heartbeat. “I’ll look for something soft first. Maybe you should get a large supply of small pillows, and leave them around.” Zeke raised his brows, grinning.

No! Internet Two... Resistance is victory...
PLEASE! Darling KitKats, if you have any thought about taking the flu shot/swine flu shot, please! Read the insert first, not just the info sheet.
ALSO! *Private* contracts with the vaccine suppliers require that any deaths or injuries not be reported. Plus, all the vaccine companies are immune from being sued for injuries and death due to their vaccines.
Yes, please! Let the privileged have the Kougar’s designated flu shot.

Have a Splendid Holiday Season...
May your most romantic dreams come true...

Hugs and smoochies from the Kougar...
