Seriously, picture getting TEASED by All that ROMANCE while reclining on a clipper ship, bobbing on a sultry BAY. Imagine your senses being pampered with WILD ROSES by a Regency hunk named Sir LYON. Oh, sure I'm WISE that it's FICTION. But come the SAMHAIN, you never know - you could be EXCHANGED (go back) in time to be with your hunk. But you need Mr. LINKY to do it. I guess that's the LONG AND SHORT OF IT.

So what are you waiting for! Get Lucky and Enter today! $$$ 100.00 $$$

And for those NON-readers out there.

Guess what? I almost hit a cow today!
Yep, young bull was crossing the road in front of me. I was so startled, I mean, how often do I come across huge wildlife in the middle of the road? Not often.
Oh, if a cow, which is domesticated, is loose in the road, does it revert to being called WILD LIFE? Or is there another word for it?

Anyway, someone must have called the police to say there was a cow on the loose because I looked in my rearview mirror and a police cruiser with lights flashing drove up to block the road. See? Even cows get Police Protection.
OK...,so it was traffic control.


Yesterday, when I was bringing home youngest from an MD appt, we saw a bedraggled raccoon about 10:30 AM. At that time of day, my first thought was rabies. My little guy told the visiting librarian all about it and how he was concerned about people's safetly. She was impressed.

She called today to let us know that the Animal Control Officer had apprehended the poor thing. Turns out the raccoon was NOT rabid at all.
It had been ATTACKED by a porcupine!
The little bandit is now being cared for and nursed back to health.

So, Yep - the word LUCKY is hot today.

The cow story is funny. *g* Glad to know that the raccoon was okay and it's neat that your Son was concerned.
Hope things are well with you and work AND home!

I thought you meant a nasty woman at first! HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Actually, I just found out yesterday that the infection from the attack was three days old and had progressed so far and was so bad the poor thing was suffering. The Animal Control people had to put it down. At least the poor thing isn't suffering anymore.

Thanks for reading, Brandy!


M.E.! HUGS to you! I miss your comments. I know you've been really busy with all your books. Congrats that so many have been published!

And yes, I supposed there are "those" kinds of lovely people out there we could refer to as 'cows', but I have better words to use.
**waggles brows**

Great to see you!
