Farewell to actor, Gene Barry. This is how the Kougar remembers him the most, as the incomparable and dapper, Bat Masterson. Yep, this Big Cat girl had a mighty large crush on Bat Masterson. Not only could he disable an attacker with the martial arts’ use of his cane, but his urbane manners and his superb intellect set Bat Masterson apart from other Western TV heroes.
The Kougaress recalls eagerly awaiting the TV opening of Bat Masterson each week for as long as the show ran, then relishing every moment. In a way she didn’t understand at the time, there was something about Bat Masterson that fed her soul. He wasn’t a cheat, yet he was a winner. He had true character, strength and a witty intelligence that moi adored. He helped others, often at a huge risk to himself. And he did it all with charm and a western-spirited panache.
Thank you, Gene Barry, for playing the character, Bat Masterson. The Kougar knows heaven is embracing you.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 349 ~
Sylva savored the way her cowboy husband gathered her so close to his body. She cuddled closer slipping her arms around him. The feel of him was all powerful male, and vibrant. Vibrant because he felt more alive against her than any other human being she’d ever hugged. She supposed it was due to the fact that folks here were stronger in themselves. They learned how to protect themselves. They were freer. From all that she’d observed, so far, they were more self-sufficient. For moments, sadness interrupted her happiness, as she thought about those on her Earth, their potentials lost.
Zeke basked in the deep satisfaction of holding his Sylva close in their bed. Their bed. The thought reached in and seized his heart, then his soul. It was true. He’d found the wife he wanted, had prayed to find with a dedicated daily fervor that had surprised him. Yep, for nearly a year’s time, now. He sensed from the lax feel of his wife’s body that she needed more rest. He’d accidently overtaxed her strength a bit. “Nap time, darlin’.” Rubbing her back gently, he eased her toward sleep. “I am tired,” she whispered. “You wore me out, stud.”
