You ain’t just whistling Dixie, baby…

He gunned the 1,200cc panhead V-twin on his vintage 1951 Harley-Davidson chopper and grinned as the beast shuddered. ~ Line from Rebecca Gillan’s post at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS [see below].

Late night purrs, my gorgeous and glimmering-eyed KitKats... a cooler sweet day on the tame prairie... gosh the temps felt so good... yep, the Kougaress had to check out pics for this vintage 1951 Harley-Davidson, and found this advertisement. What a trippy little trip back into time.

Authoress news and mews ~

O lordy yowls, the Kougar’s short stories keep expanding on her... now what? This Big Cat is beginning to believe it’s just a sneaky plan by her heroines and heroes to reel her in like a hapless trout so they can get their stories told -- “Here’s a short story idea for you,” they tempt... they whisper and entice. Okay, it’s not the first time this ruse has been pulled.

Question: Do authors teach their heroines and heroes how to treat them by ‘going along’ and writing their stories despite this deception?

Also, if the Kougar is going to dip a claw into the Indie market, she needs a cover artist... so, she found out via an i-search that her amazing cover artist, Amanda Kelsey, is on staff with Eternal Press ~ ~ as well as doing freelance cover art. Just interesting info.


Change of Plans

“You ain’t just whistling Dixie, baby… hm hm hm hm hm hm…”

Rex jumped and turned, looking for the source of voice. He blushed when he realized it was coming from a convertible parked a few spots down from him at the scenic turn off he’d been told to wait at. And it was coming from a guy who was admiring his bike. Or his backside. Either option was enough to make him want to crawl under a rock and hide tail.

This was silly. For days, he had been following the directions of the sex voiced lady who kept calling him on his private cell phone. He’d skipped out of Texas Hold’em Poker Night and went for a run, as per her orders.

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

2:12 am... 2:22 am... 4:44 am... 1:11 pm... 4:44 pm... 10:10 pm... likely a riot coming to a location near you as the financial oppression by the mega-rich banksters continues... how to defeat them? One solution is to create a strong local economy, and get out of the system...

States Battling Wildfires as Heat Wave Continues ContributorNetwork - Tue, 09 Aug 2011 16:26:53 PDT

ContributorNetwork - In addition to the heat-related deaths, destruction of farmland, and shortages of water, many states suffering under the weight of a suffocating heat wave are at an increased risk of wildfires as well. Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Utah have all battled various wildfire outbreaks already, and wind conditions in Oklahoma in particular are promising to keep things in a state of high alert. The National Weather Service, among other organizations, issued a wildfire warning for much of Oklahoma on Monday.


“Matt Lauer makes $17 million, topping annual TV news salaries” So, this was a news headline... like that airhead, be a good corp boy, deserves even any salary at all... okay, this Big Cat hasn’t watched him for about five years now... however, she doubts his mental capacity has improved in the least... he was just a pretty enough boy who could repeat the corp talking points well enough to fool some of the people some of the time. He’s certainly NOT from the best and the brightest category... not even close... he’s just a mediocre mind who could top the best of the mediocre with his mediocre talent. Of course, in his defense, Lauer was chosen because THOSE who do the real hiring DON’T the best and the brightest. They never did. They just want it to appear as if ‘they’ do. Not to mention, the current ratings for all four of the so-called mainstream TV channels is basically in the toilet when compared to internet viewership for news and entertainment.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

~ Happy Summer-escapin' in August ~


And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Glimmering-eyed kisses from the Kougar...

Oooh, story expansion time is wonderful time!! Did you offer your muse a sweet treat? ~wink~

My muse only gets a sweet treat if she inspires and helps out with a short story, right now... I'm feeling darn cranky... although, in all fairness to my Muse, she is mostly WONDERFUL, WILD AND WICKED... I think we both want to be 'unleashed'... what that looks like, I don't know. Maybe, I'm about to find out...?

How are you and your Muse getting along?
