A Strange Highness, not High Strangeness
Bat Masterson, one of a kind and darn dapper and sexy.
Evening tail-flicking purrs, my dream-walking and dazzling KitKats... it was cooler on the tame prairie... the winds whipped around for a time... wow-pow, too bad the Kougaress has no wind-energy device... anyhoo and mew, moi had long rambunctious dreams and ‘not’ the pleasant kind starring a hunk devoted to her pleasures... oh no, per usual, the woman in the dream, someone moi knew once upon a time, who has sadly passed, was out to get her... of course, these days, realistically, the dangers pile up moment by moment... however, before the Kougaress fell into dreamlandia, she pondered over how much of our liberty had been traded for security... though, this Big Cat has never felt *less secure* than she does now. Never!!!
Warning ~ Serious stuff ahead... do not read, if you want lighthearted...
A Strange Highness, not High Strangeness ~ More and more in these time, this Big Cat just shakes her furry mug, and wonders... as an afficionado of the paranormal and paranormal research, the term, High Strangeness, is often used to denote what cannot be explained, but occurs. One grisly example are the cattle mutilations... yep, still going on, in case you didn’t know. No one has ever been charged with this crime and gone on trial. And, no, predators don’t generally use laser-type of instruments. Unless, they’re cunning shapeshifters... but that’s a whole other story that’s probably been written... hmmm... okay, then, these are the perfect bad guys...
But, shake a furry butt, the Kougaress digresses... when did it happen? This Strange Highness of events? When did the founders of our beloved country, those men who loved and cherished freedom above their own lives... those men who were tortured and sacrificed their families for the sake of founding our nation... when did they become labeled as te**orists? Oh, except by the British, of course. The crown definitely labeled them as Te**orists.
Did you know there are training programs for law enforcement that vilify and now declare our founding fathers to be Te**orists? This is also being taught in some schools. What’s going on? This Big Cat was taught to revere and honor the founding fathers. She was taught to love freedom. She was taught to fight for freedom. And now! Now! Fighting for freedom... well, now you are likely to be labeled a Te**orist. ~blink, blink~
Yes, it's here, or about ready to pounce... 12:12 am... given all that's gone today, moi hadn't really thought about THE NUMBER that's been stalking her.
Authoress news and mews ~
Yowls, the Kougar remains so dang busy, she envies those headless chickens. She let her thoughts settle and sizzle, then did get another chapter of Kandy Apple done and revised. Claws crossed and ‘knock on wood’ she gets the next one done in a timely manner... hope, hope...
The new header for SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS has arrived and was designed by Amanda Kelsey of Razzle Dazzle design ~ razzdazzdesign.com ~ Purrs about shifter-powerful and sexy.
Being tech-challenged, this Big Cat has no clue how to insert it, so to speak. But, hopefully that will happen soon.

The Drought Came and Went!
We got close to 7 inches of rain in a matter of days. While we've not experienced flooding, there are areas that are super saturated. My commute to work was slow and slick.

Stonehenge skeleton came from Mediterranean
By RAPHAEL G. SATTER, Associated Press Writer Raphael G. Satter, Associated Press Writer – Wed Sep 29, 3:41 pm ET
LONDON — A wealthy young teenager buried near Britain's mysterious Stonehenge monument came from the Mediterranean hundreds of miles away, scientists said Wednesday, proof of the site's importance as a travel destination in prehistoric times.
The teen — dubbed "The Boy with the Amber Necklace" because he was unearthed with a cluster of amber beads around his neck — is one of several sets of foreign remains found around the ancient ring of imposing stones, whose exact purpose remains unknown.

Giant penguins with no tux? Fossil feathers say so
By LAURAN NEERGAARD, Associated Press Writer Lauran Neergaard, Associated Press Writer – Thu Sep 30, 5:12 pm ET
WASHINGTON – Some ancient penguins may have been twice as big as today's Emperor penguin but they lacked the dashing tuxedo. Researchers unearthed remains of a nearly 5-foot-tall penguin that roamed what is now Peru about 36 million years ago, and they also discovered fossilized feathers that show back then, the flightless bird was a more motley mix of reddish-brown and gray.
Thursday's report in the journal Science is more than a curiosity about color. Analyzing the fossil led to a new discovery about modern penguins, which in turn raises questions about how their feathers evolved to help them become such expert swimmers.
It's one of the largest penguins that ever lived, estimated to have been twice as heavy as the average Emperor penguin of today. The second species of giant penguin discovered in Peru, it was given the name Inkayacu paracasensis, or Water King, part of a cluster of now-extinct penguin species that apparently ranged over much of the Southern Hemisphere.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 643 ~
Sylva watched as a sandy-haired burly man, yet one that was all hard delicious muscle approached her. “Bart, ma’am, wife of Zeke. Bart is my name. I’ll be lookin’ after you until your husband returns.” Sylva blinked and figured she looked like an owl, once again. “Nice to meet you, Bart.” With a respectful nod, Bart parked himself across from her and Sylva noticed his hawk-like flinty gaze. Bart hadn’t been kidding. His gaze slowly and constantly swept the area around them. Okay, then. Satisfying her curiosity, Sylva cast her gaze over the other seated men, about twenty of them.
Zeke swept away his irritation at being interrupted. His training kicked in, then kicked him hard enough so he gave his full attention to his dad. Once they entered the pilot’s cabin, Zeke rushed toward one of the contact screens. There was a photo of his bride, his Sylva on a Secret Circle bounty poster. “Wanted: Alive. The wife of Zeke Vintorr. The sum to be paid will be negotiated to your advantage.” Stunned down to his boots, he almost rocked backward. Then fury hit him. His blood boiled. Whirling, he gazed at his dad. “We’ll keep her safe, son.”
