Daisy Mae Turns 16 And My Nephew Turns 20

Hello Everyone and thanks for stopping by, Today my Nephew turns 20 no more a teenager but now a college student and in a Fraternity. Also, I want to wish my baby Daisy Mae a very happy 16th birthday. I still remember the night my parents and I found her. They had just brought me home from work and as soon as you opened the car door, all you could hear was this very loud meowing which we of course followed and low and behold we found this beautiful very loud kitten with lungs like you would not believe that we guestimated was about 4 weeks old and fit in the palm of your hand. We fed her, gave her something to drink and a nice warm place to stay and it was funny in a way because her Mama who dropped her off kept coming around until she was sure her baby had found her loving furrever home. Daisy Mae’s Mama was a dark greyish and white Tummy. Daisy Mae’s Mamma had more white on her Belly than Daisy did. The funny thing is, is that my Dad said and I quote “No more pets in the house until Pigs fly”. Well let me tell you people, Pigs flew that night because it was Dad who insisted we bring her in the house despite the rest of us wanting to already bring her in. Living with all of Daisy Mae’s antics as well as through has been a journey of learning, exploration and of course fun. Now that Daisy Mae is a Super Senior Cat, she sleeps quite a bit but still gets her exercise. Below is a gallery of pictures that shows Daisy Mae in her 3 stages of life — Kitten(top 2 pictures), midlife(picture on 2nd row left hand side) and Super Senior(picture on right hand side in second row).

 

HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY DAISY MAE!!

A Tribute To Tigger & Remembering 9-11(Patriot Day)

Today is bittersweet day for me because today would have been my Grandmother’s Birthday if she were alive that’s the sweet part now the not so sweet part of today, I remember my Tigger Cat who was a true Tabby Cat that died on 9-11 and also the terrible happenings on what we now call Patriot day.

Tigger you may have died on 9-11-2015 which was seven years ago, but I still miss you yet I cherish all the time I was able to have with you . You were a beautiful Tabby Cat but even though you were a Super Senior Cat when you died, I will always love you. The Morning you died is still etched in my mind but although you were gone, you weren’t gone from my heart or mind far from it in fact. The day you earned your wings and flew over the Rainbow Bridge and God called you home to be with him, was a very sad day for me but a happy day for God. I hope you’ve made a lot of friends and I know Ms. Ellen’s Angel kitties you’d get along with. Daisy Mae misses you a lot here. Tigger We Love You Lots.

Patriot Day, a day that was so so terrible and if we were alive we remember where we were and what we were doing. I know I remember where I was, I was on my way to work when when the first plane hit and then I was rounding the corner just getting ready to pull into the parking lot when the second plane hit. When I hit the Breakroom that Morning, I remember everyone being in shock at what had just happened and all eyes were glued to the tv. The store manager even came in and told us there was no Morning meeting and stayed briefly then left the room. May we remember all those who gave their lives, who were injured and especially their families. 

May We Never Forget!!

Book 2: The Miracle Of True Love Finally Completed

Double accomplishment and I can’t believe I did it but I did, you see not only have I completed one book in 2022 but two and started a third. Book 1 which is entitled When Love, Murder & Rejection Collide. Book 2 is entitled The Miracle Of True Love Finally Hits The Bulls Eye. I can’t tell you how happy and thrilled I am of these two accomplishments now to figure out a title for book three. I have several title possibilities but the one I’m leaning towards is Power VS. Love… Which One Wins Out? What do you think.

When I was writing Book 2, I had a pretty good idea what type of book I wanted it to be but guess what Yepers that is right my characters took over and they had other ideas so Book 2 ended up steamier and hotter than I’d planned but I kept the swearing out of it. Also you all should know, I had fun no a blast writing Book 2 this way. 

I need some help with a title for Book 3 and any suggestions put in the comments. Below is a little about the book.

I would like the book to be about a power hungry bully who tries to split up the main two characters who are Queen Diann and King Sphen, Queen Diann has always been Royalty but King Sphen well… he is a poor old Ranch Hand that was in Queen Diann’s Senior Class helped the head bully bully Queen Diann but since then Queen Diann has forgiven him and they by chance see one another again and he realizes he’s always been in love with her but this doesn’t sit well the power hungry bully who does everything in her power to split them up including spreading lies and lying to Queen Diann’s husband about her where about, what she’s been doing and her past.

Please give me ideas. Thanks.

 

Are Book Excerpts & Trigger Warnings Really Necessary?

SEX, SEX, SEX, SEX… Now that I got everyone’s attention, let’s talk about the subject of my post today which is are book excerpts and trigger warnings really necessary?

I have always wondered are book excerpts and trigger warnings really necessary when you can look at the book cover. My opinion & conclusion is a resounding YES. You are probably wondering why? first you have to decide how do you decide to buy a book?  Is it by the cover, the excerpt, by reviews or all of the above. Me personally, I am one of those people who look at a book cover then decide and only read the book sometimes. I learned the hard way don’t trust reviews. I will use an example that happened to me this past week and it was: I like to read that’s not a secret so I follow book sites to get a good idea of new books and authors I might want to buy. This past week I noticed some books being advertised and I checked out all the book covers. Surprised the book cover was neutral or just made me eerily turn off my idea to buy these books. The one book cover that caught my attention had a nice setting but what made the cover eerie was a man on the cover with his hands out reaching for the woman but the expression on the woman’s face was a terrified one and one asking the guy why are you doing this to me. Yes, I got all that from a cover then I started reading the book excerpt and it was so bad I cringed through what I did read and what I did read was so bad I didn’t even get halfway through it I had to stop. I found out real quick these books were about birching, spanking and beating their Brides To Be and their Brides to their bare bottom was almost bloody or to it was bloody. I found at least a half a dozen or more books like this and I thought where are the trigger warnings. The book with the book cover of the terrified woman on it, was about beating a woman’s bare bottom until it was almost bloody or until  it was bloody. This was supposed to make the woman submit to the man and if she didn’t listen to the man the first time, each time he beat her got worse. I’m sorry but in my opinion this sounds like abuse. I found so many books like this without looking it just surprised me. A trigger warning should have been placed in the front of the book or right before the book excerpt.  I like to read books in that time period but not about this. Even if there was no Trigger warnings, no book excerpts or even if there was a book excerpt and I ignored it, the book cover alone turned me off so bad I would not buy that book.

What are your thoughts?
