Another wolf story

Gee, I hope the last post didn't scare you away from my blog. Some people might've considered it a tad harsh. But like my headliner says, sometimes
it's a sounding board because everyone needs to vent. Boy! Did I vent!

Time to go back to my usual. Of course, I read another book.
To Tame a Wolf by Susan Krinard. I mostly enjoy her stories...there's always something that I wish were different....but I overlook it because as a whole, the stories are good. In this one, I fugured out the "holder of the map" early on...REALLY early on. It was just a matter of how and when it would be revealed. The tried and true technique, (.is that what it is called or does it have another name in the literary circles? ) use of a "soiled dove's" past catching up to her just when she thinks she can have an "ordinary" life somewhere know.. the starting over again ploy, is utilized. No matter.....I like werewolf romances , I enjoy Susan Krinard's I make allowances ....therefore, I enjoy the journey. Would I recommend this...sure.
The weird thing? I didn't know that HQN books is her publisher AND that it stands for Harlequin Romances!!!! For me, that's like Ketucky Fried Chicken now being called KFC,
like its a new idea or something....Heh, go figure.

Nice cover , where do they find such handsome wolves???

OK, time to shift gears again and go with some humor. Are you ready??
Some perception twists:
Last night I wanted you. I needed you so badly it hurt. I wanted to taste you. I wanted you in me so you can work your magic on me, but I couldn't find you.

I shall seek you and find you. I shall take you to bed and control you. I will make you ache, shake and sweat until you grunt and groan.....
All my love,
The Flu

A bit of the Corny:

Subj: The Clock Repairman (S309) From: on 1/1/2003

Harvey's grandfather clock suddenly stops working right one day, so he loads it into his van and takes it to a clock repair shop. In the shop is a little old man who insists he is Swiss, and has a heavy German accent. He asks Harvey, "Vat sims to be ze problem?"
Harvey says, "I'm not sure, but it doesn't go 'tick-tock- tick-tock' anymore. Now it just goes 'tick...tick...tick.'"

The old man says, "Mmm-Hm!" and steps behind the counter, where he rummages around a bit. He emerges with a huge flashlight and walks over the the grandfather clock. He turns the flashlight on, and shines it directly into the clocks face. Then he says in a menacing voice,
"Ve haf vays of making you tock!"

OH, BTW, Does anyone know a good recipe for corn bread? Where it's kind of sweet and moist. I like mine with a moist sticky top. (not a must however)
The recipes I've tried so far leave it dry and crumbly although tasty.
Oh, and please not ones that absolutely require a cast iron skillet to produce....I don't have one.

That's it for today. Light and airy.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Michele,

It's a difficult issue to be sure. You can see where I'm going as far as politics goes. My politics has always been towards the left of centre & it will be a dark day indeed if I ever vote republican.

A good social welfare & health system is crucial to dealing with poverty. I hoped when Clinton was elected he would get the healthcare bill through but, those vested interests were just too strong I guess. My point being that when there are extremes of povery & or wealth then society suffers. Your example of the coastal property illustrates this.

I am not suggesting for one moment that we all live on government handouts but there is a sensible compromise there somewhere. The issue of healthcare is also a problem, a recent study of children in New Orleans found that a large % had not even the basic vaccinations against TB, Polio, & other vaccines which we take for granted in this country. The availiability of healthcare free at the point of demand has been a basic right in this country since 1934. It upsets me to think that children & older people there just don't have access to decent healthcare.

Anyway I'm decending into a political rant which I'm sure you don't need so just to say yes this is a complicated issue but good leadership can make a ll the difference.

I agree...good leadership CAN make a difference. On all levels.
I'm still waiting to see that happen. Thanks for your comments...
Like I said, everyone needs a sounding board..and a politial rant qualifies... :-)
