Santa...Kris CrinkleToes..Talkin' 'Bout Sex, Baby

SHAZAM! Like that it appeared in my email today...

All huge like that, minus the red circle thingy.

Now...I am quoting this reader's question to the magazine. Don't laugh, but I think she is a virgin...

Q: I enjoy sex, but how can I tell if I'm really having an orgasm? I'm just not sure if I'm experiencing the ear-shattering type of orgasm that everyone talks about.
— Kristine, Washington
 
Well, Kristine, I might be the virgin, because I have never had my ears shattered during sex. Thank you, baby Jesus, that would really hurt and suck ballz, if I had any.
 
I could tell you the world stops for me and for a moment, I am in the most bliss anyone can imagine...my body shudders, my toes curl...I may scream...
 
But not the kind of scream from a Zombie Apocalypse attack. I also might hyperventilate, but in a good way, and not quite, but almost.
 
However, not to be outdone, but Dr. Laura Berman answered Kristine on Women's health. See that pretty blond up there, that's her. Here's what she told Kristine from Washington...
 
A:    Many people feel confused or intimidated by the images of sexuality they see on television or at the movies. The truth is that real sex looks nothing like the sex you see on the big-screen, just as real relationships are often nothing like the relationships you see on the big-screen. Don’t let these false images of love and sex take over your perception of how you “should” feel during sex or how your orgasms should feel.
 
However, if you aren’t certain that you have reached orgasm yet, than chances are you probably haven’t. Though every woman experiences orgasms in her own way, an orgasm feels like an intense and pleasurable release. You might feel the sensation only in your genitals, or you might feel it extend down your legs.

Take some time to explore your body on your own through self-stimulation. Once you know how to achieve orgasm on your own, it will be easier to show your partner how to do so. By stimulating your clitoris, either manually or with a toy, you should be able to reach orgasm — and when you do, you know for once and for all what one feels like!
 
Isn't it great up there? You can link to "ORGASM" and it defines it. Because I am so nice and helpful, I linked it to the same video and article I was provided. I really think Dr. Laura Berman gave a bland answer. And the scientific response is such a let down.
 
So...I asked some of my Facebook friends...
 
They are ANONYMOUS...thus, all related...and unknown to you...but I know who they are...
 
The first one I asked was a man..."... and as I Drive I'm certainly not answering that question." Notice he capitalized the word, "drive". Does that mean anything? I don't know. Am I reading too much into it as a woman? Probably. Did I excite him? Not sure, but he gave me a big "D" in the word "drive". I never heard back from him again so I hope he is alright and didn't run off the road.
 
The next one was female. Our convo went like this...
 
"If I could describe it, I'd be writing erotica



(Shut up, ***)



I mean, making a living writing erotica".

I just LOL'd all through the conversation. Why? Because I'm immature like that. Because we laugh talking boy shop. We get detailed. It was a three way convo minus the third gal who didn't come into the conversation, but we talked about her anyway, sorta. She's the three asterisks up there. We hang like that. Anyway, her final answer was this...


"Physical description...almost painful, but not quite. How about intense sensations, bordering on painful? And then the endorphins release and BAM!

Love the endorphin release. Sigh."

Yes. We get excited just talking about it. The real deal, not the fake ones.

The last buddy that got back to me was a man...one of my faves and yours...

"Pressure builds up and it is like a rush coming down the pike. Like a water hose and then the equation. Then you get a sandwich and take a nap."

I don't know. Does it matter what kind of sandwich? Like is a club better sex than a grilled cheese? And is a longer nap needed if it was a better orgasm? And what's up with the math? Equation? Again, not sure.

He said I could post his name for all he cares, but then we wouldn't all be related by the same name, ANONYMOUS.

No one else answered me. In time.

The story of my sex life.

Anyway, I am now ignoring my email, because I will surely get spam for phone sex, porn sites, and sex pots galore after reading that article on Women's Health. I don't know how I got subscribed to it anyhow, but it says so on 09/23/13. It's bullshit. I didn't push any buttons or click anywhere.  Probably someone spammed me on Facebook.

Is that the same thing as you know what in my face...no....not going there. That is nasty. And why do men find that appealing?  That's somebody else's blog post, Coffeypot! You were thinking it.

Now I have to go take a shower. We will not explore this again. Not even alone. No exploring!!!

Ok. Everything is coming out phallic or sexual. Beat me. See. Ok.

Have a nice day!

Control Yourself...and Your Gunz

I promised gun control issues. I bet you are going to be surprised about the issues. Not MY issues, but others with issues. Anyway.

So...about that university crisis we had a few days ago. Seems it wasn't a real gunman, which is nice. However, a shot did ring out. On the pavement. From an AR. By a cop.
To write this, is to make me madder. I don't think I can write without...

OK. Already.

FUCK. ME. IN. THE. ASS.

Who has their damn finger on the trigger when they aren't on target ready to kill?

Really.

Nothing pisses me off more than the press labeling something an AD when in all actuality it is pure headupassitis. UGH. Gah.

Boy, does that cop feel stupid now. He was on national news.

It didn't stop there. The next day, I went to a boot repair shop. Cutest damn place in the Heartland and way cool boots for sale and the dude does an old dying art which I am grateful for, because I had two really good pairs of shoes to repair which I haven't gone to pick up and I better do it before he sells them on eBay.

Anyway. I was admiring his American West purses which had the "secret" pocket to carry concealed. What happened? It's American West. Duh. $300.00. I have a wallet that cost $178.00. Don't worry. I paid 25% of that because it was on clearance. Best damn wallet I own. And really cool.

Anyboots. You know what the guy says?

"Lady, they aren't no damn good because you are going to blow a hole in your purse when you draw anyways and ruin it. "

I said, "WHAT?" I was like this picture....

Then, I knew I was in the house of a celebrity....

Pokey was on vacation at The Mustang Ranch outside of Vegas, however. So, my conversation with Gumby continued.
 
The dude just went on and on how when you draw, you would blow a hole in the purse and he wished the designer actually made a holster inside the pocket so it was safer.
 
I just walked around and pretended I didn't hear that, because I was about to get on a soapbox about idiots and gun safety. Then, I decided he had my best pair of Italian shoes and I should shut my mouth.
 
So...does everyone in the world really think guns go bang all by themselves? Does everyone know if you drop a gun, it will not fire? Why, you ask? Because your fucking finger is not on the trigger. Guns don't have accidental discharges. Only nasty women working the red light district do. Ok. That was icky. Poke my eyes out with a stick, getting a visual, worked police work too long...saw too many hooker hoohahs. Stop!!! Get out of my head!!
 
 
Anygetyourfingeroffthetrigger, stop condemning the guns!!! It's the operator!!
 
Ok. Rant over. I know, Bob. Not what you thought.
 
I'm still pissed about the gun thing. Now we look stupid out here. In public. On national news. Thank you, Jesus, it wasn't a campus cop.

The Haunting of the Harry Potter House

I've been having a series of problems with my electrical matters in my house. And a heater.

The second electrician showed up today. He was the one, from the same company, that came here when I purchased the house and took the lamp cord out of the wall in the kitchen that was left from 1900s or so...hot...mind you...in the wall....where I could burn down. That was a procedure of surgery.

So...John noticed I was watching The Dead Files and he came around the corner and told me he loved that show and Amy was "spooky." I said it was one of my faves. The conversation then moved on to ghost hunting shows and the paranormal.

I have never felt the Harry Potter house was haunted. It has a feeling of joy. At first, John looked at the breakers and could not find they had tripped this time. Which meant I was a liar pants. I had not even gone down there to look after the third time, I just called them. When the heater didn't work for the umpteenth time, I just assumed it tripped the breaker again. He said it was a bigger issue.

I also explained the chandelier issue and showed him the explosion of light bulbs from last night there and in the bathroom. While explaining the power surge and then the popping, he raised his eyebrows. The two are on different circuits. He asked if I lost power recently. I said, "no."

He looks like a clean Grizzly Adams with nice white teeth.

I pointed at him, he is much taller than me, and said, "And my house is not haunted. I am not bringing Amy and Steve to investigate." [Big cheesy grin]

Mady has been talking and walking in her sleep again. Mostly talking about her love for green beans. She hates green beans. It must be bothering her because she fell asleep on the bus two days ago and her friend McKensey told her she was talking about how she loved green beans. Strange.

Squirrel!! Be right back.

Sorry, I had an interruption. The town just drove by my house with a "GIANT VAC" on a dump truck. I had no idea I could rake my leaves into the street and they would vacuum fume them up. Nifty.

Any poltergeist, John laughed and said if I did, to call him and we could sell tickets. He said he would like to watch them work. I told him I would sell beer and popcorn as well.

When it was all said and done, the heater is now working and I have to watch it to make sure it won't trip anything. He said the next step might be rewiring some things and that is ugly expensive. Beat me.

I told him that was not in the budget. He said I could just turn it off if the heater caused a problem, but rewiring was serious and not to be messed with. Beat me. However, he left me his personal cell number to call him and update him with the thermostat issue and let him know in a couple days if that is working.

So...I am praying for a fix and no-no to the need for rewiring parts of the house. I'm off to watch more Dead Files, drink coffee like it's crack cocaine, and ponder my next life without so many issues. Even the great Mr. Fire Chief is raising his eyebrows at my naked streak of bad luck.

Books Are Magical!

Don't you just love a good book? It's sad when it ends...you can't wait to pick up the next one. Just like having multiple sex partners. Only minus the disease. And conversation. Oh, never mind.

Anyway...I was lucky enough to have a couple of books come out by the great Mr. Emery and let me tell you...they are much different, but deep. Emery writes with great description and detail, drawing you in and carrying suspense until the very last chapter. It's a sign of intelligence and imagination all wrapped up in one. Bravo, Bill! You can get them both on Amazon for a really nice price...let's dig into this..

 
 
Bill, please start with a brief bio of some facts about you. It can be anything you would like to share with us.
I live in Sylvania Township, Ohio where I grew up on a working horse farm specializing in American Saddlebred horses, three gaited and five gaited. In a life that could be described as colorful, I have earned my living as an automobile mechanic, a ballroom dance instructor, a new car salesman and a computer programmer. I’ve traveled extensively throughout the United States East of the Mississippi and I’ve lived for short periods in many of the major cities and a few minor ones. I’m still unmarried, but I’m involved with a truly beautiful woman who has a heart made of pure gold.
 
What started your passion to begin putting words into books?
When I was in grade school my maternal grandmother, Ruth Cameron, was the first person to show me what reading was good for; if you can read, you can write anything you’d like.  So I read everything I could get my hands on and was probably the only student in school that enjoyed essay questions.
 
Over the years several people suggested that I should write a novel with the idea of being published.  I didn’t take these suggestions seriously until about two years ago when my brother Mike suggested I start writing for a living.  And so it began.
What is the inspiration for the character Otheldo in Magic For Hire?
Otheldo is a composite of several stage magicians that I have known.  The name Otheldo comes from a magician who performed at a luxury hotel in Charlevoix, Michigan many years ago.  He and his wife invited me to dinner which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I may have been around ten years old at the time.
Do you force yourself to write? Or does it have to be the right time?
I force the time to be right. 
 
Ah. Such a good play on my words, kind sir!
 
Some years back an author explained to me that there wasn’t any real trick to writing.  “You start with a character, and pretty soon someone else comes along and talks to him.”  He was right about that, but he didn’t finish the thought.  There are many talented people in the world who will never be discovered because they lack discipline.  Their talent, wherever it lies, makes a certain artistic discipline easy for them.  In the beginning these people receive a lot of praise and attention, but later on as their discipline of choice becomes more difficult they give up.  They can’t force themselves to work hard at it, day in and day out.  Those of us with a lot less talent can make up for a lack of talent by hard work.  Part of that hard work is making the time right.  You write when you don’t feel like it, when you’d rather be doing something else and when you’re inspired.
 Your book illustrations on both Magic For Hire and Murder One are unique. Tell us more about them.
I have a fine sense of aesthetics but I have absolutely no talent for drawing, painting or sculpting.  I even took art lessons when I was in high school, but no dice.  I’m a gamer (board games as well as fantasy role playing) and so attended the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio.  They always have an area of booths devoted to artists who specialize in fantasy art, so my purpose that year was to find an artist who would create a book cover for Otheldo at a reasonable price.  This should be easy, right?  But the fact is that most of these artists have an ego twice the size of their booth and as fragile as a soap bubble.  This condition makes them impossible to work with.
Tina Bongorno was the first artist that seemed genuinely glad to meet me and was enthusiastic about creating such a mundane item as a cover illustration.  Tina got Otheldo just right with very little input from me, and I’ve received many unsolicited compliments about the cover.  When I asked Tina to create the cover illustration for Murder One I had a much better idea about what I wanted, but Tina made a drastic improvement on my idea that moved it from just another banal cover to an outstanding masterpiece – truly eye-catching.
 
 Yes, Tina has joined us for her artistic expression on her works. Tell us what inspired you.
 
With Magic for Hire, Bill allowed me a large amount of creative freedom in regards to the initial concept of the cover. I gave him a few idea's to choose from, but we ultimately decided to settle on an action shot from one of the short stories in the Anthology, "The Curse." This allowed us to introduce the idea of the character as a wizard and hint at the sort of magical adventures he might get up to within the anthology. In the painting process, I kept the colors somewhat muted and dark to echo the mood of the scene we were referencing as well as highlight the main character Otheldo's magic.
 
With Murder One, the process was a little different. Bill already had a vision for what should be featured on the cover (the two unlucky victims), so I decided to experiment a little with the coloring of the piece. I produced three different color "sketches", one with a sort of natural summer light, one with a strong orange and blue contrast, and then one in bright blood red. We ended up going with the last one since we both liked the implied symbolism behind the color and thought that it would be a more eye-catching to the viewer.
 
Bravo, Tina! I love your illustrations.  Thank you for playing along with my questions.
 
Bill, why such different books? Different categories and different story lines?
I was a little tired of writing fantasy and decided to branch out.  Plus, I had an advantage.  When I lived in Cincinnati, Ohio my business was right next door to a detective agency.  I got to know the detectives pretty well and learned about some of their more interesting cases and experiences.
 Oh, boy. Those investigators letting the cat out of the bag. LOL. Do you have plans for future works? If so, can you tell us some snippets about them?
I’m working on another set of stories featuring Otheldo, who will be faced with a few difficult moral choices.  I’m planning a second novel for Art Valentine that’s based on a real life case I learned about when I lived in Cincinnati. I also have three or four novelettes that I haven’t decided what to do with.  Eventually I’ll edit them and publish them all on Amazon.
Ballroom dancing. Do tell.
When I was 21 I answered an ad in the local scandal sheet that specified ‘no experience necessary – will train’.  This was with the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Toledo, Ohio.  The manager, John Kisha, persuaded me to sign a nine month contract with a three year non-competition clause and stuffed me into training class down in the studio basement.  After the first week I was the only one left in training class, which should have told me something, but I ignored it. 
The owner of the Toledo studio was Marvin Cantor.  He was a well-mannered, affable man and lived in Cleveland, Ohio.  Marvin owned the University Heights studio, which was one of the top ten largest studios in the United States.  We’d see Marvin in Toledo three or four times a year.  The manager of the Toledo studio was John Johnson, whose real name was John Kisha.  In contrast to Marvin Cantor, Kisha was a real little snot.  He’d only been in the dance business for about two years working for Cantor in the University Heights studio when he was promoted to manager of the Toledo studio, which was kind of a questionable promotion given the difference in the studio size.  Anyway, after I worked at the Toledo studio for about ten months Kisha fired me, saying that I was a poor dancer, a worse teacher and that I couldn’t sell any dance lessons.  In short, I’d achieved perfection - I was a perfect failure.
 I went down the street to the Fred Astaire dance studio, where I was interviewed and immediately hired by Richard Kurtz, who was the owner/manager at that time.  What I didn’t know was that Kurtz was, quite literally, a living legend in the dance industry.  He’d been in the dance business for over ten years, was the master franchisee for the State of Ohio and had nothing but a long string of success stories in his past.  While Richard was an excellent dancer, he handled the business end of the studio.  His wife Ruth was a member of the Fred Astaire national dance board and she provided the staff with dance training.  Working for Richard I became the top teacher in four States during the first six months I worked at Fred Astaire’s.  Many years later I learned that John Kisha used to talk about me in his business meetings, bragging to everyone about how he fired me.  There’s nothing like success, is there?
I stayed in the dance business for ten years, but it isn’t the best business for older people.  When I had my thirtieth birthday I decided that I’d better start looking for a new career, but I lacked motivation to quit and start over again.  When I hit 31, I knew I was late for the door, and about that time I found some motivation.
One rule in the dance business is that you cannot date your students.  There are any number of reasons for this, but it comes down to an unfair advantage on the instructor’s part coupled with the obvious financial reasons – students who date their instructor will cease to buy dance lessons.  If you date your students and get caught, you get fired and there’s actually a sort of informal black list.  If you’re fired for dating a student, studios won’t hire you and in point of fact most won’t give you an interview.  In my case I had a divorced lady that I thought was very attractive.  This is my Ellen, and we’re still together today.
 I used to teach Ellen at 8:00 pm, but then I moved her lesson to 9:00.  I was the only instructor teaching and I knew that the owner would get bored sitting in the office keeping an eye on me.  And that’s just what happened.  The owner took off around 9:15 and left us all alone.  What can I say?  I decided that I’d rather have my Ellen than a career in the dance business.
 
How does it feel to be a published author?
Seeing my name on a book is the strangest thing that’s happened to me in the past 20 years.
Bill, I can tell you about strangest. I have some stories. Congratulations on your books. I really enjoyed them. Anything you would like to share that I haven't asked you?
Sure.
 
My sincere thanks to everyone who has purchased one of my books.  I really appreciate your patronage.  I’d like to give special thanks to everyone who has left a review of my work on Amazon.  Thank you very much.
 
I'm about to go do that myself. I am behind in my work. Again, thank you, Bill. I find you a very complex, fascinating, and talented author, which is a huge compliment. Hugs to your lovely, Ellen for keeping you in line. Keep writing those books!

Booking It!

This week, there will be much to review...books...and more books. Also...a little somethin' somethin' in the works tonight about control...and guns. It's not what you think...but something different.

The sequel to The Last Song of the Meadowlark is due out soon.

Stay tuned for some reviews and guns.

And I am going to get around to all of your blogs. I am so far behind I'm ahead of the slowest leader. OR SOMETHING!

Bam. Multicultural Guns. Or Not.

So...Yuri found this. He is so much more brilliant than I will ever aspire to and so in tune with the world events. That's why I call him Fargo's Brilliant One.
It's interesting. Find it online and read the entire thing if you like. Basically, it's getting a lot of heat.  The conservatives are condemning the liberals. The liberals are using the race card with guns. The guns are under fire.

Two phrases are a means to the madness..."symbolic racism" and implicit racial attitudes." To define: symbolic racism as defined by UCLA (yeah...there is the first problem...UCLA? Well, it wasn't Berkley)....is well, then they go on about "old-fashioned racism." Ok. Record scratch.

Symbolic racism: Wikipedia (so it must be true)
"Symbolic Racism (modern-symbolic racism, symbolic prejudice) is a coherent belief system which reflects an underlying unidimensional prejudice toward Blacks. These beliefs include the stereotype that Blacks are morally inferior to White people, and that they violate traditional White American values such as hard-work and independence. These beliefs may cause the subject to discriminate against a certain race and to justify this discrimination as a concern for justice.[1] However, these beliefs operate to maintain the racial status quo in a manner described by Social Dominance Theory.[2] Some prejudiced people do not view symbolic racism as prejudice since it is not linked directly to race but indirectly through social and political issues.[3]"

Old fashioned racism: "blatant racial prejudice". Well, that's helpful. Let's try again: Encyclopedia Online says:  "Old-fashioned racism-Blatantly negative stereotypes based upon White racial superiority, coupled with open opposition to racial equality."

Well, they seem to have a common word. Let's just not get fancy and refer to things as racism or not racism, shall we? No need to go college on us and come up with ridiculous new phrasism and verbage. It doesn't make the scholar look smarter. Next thing you know they are going to put people's color in categories called pale, egg shell, and beige. Let's get the right SHADE. Can you see that racism makes me mad. Why? I think it is out there for sure. It's just shallow. I think we are beyond this and if we keep treating people as oppressed no matter for what reason, they are going to stay there. Let's get out of it, shall we?

So what does this article and experiment results mean in regards to guns? Only whites carry guns? Because they are racist? Or is America's gun violence racially motivated? It's common knowledge most of the mass shooters are white. And serial killers are mostly white. IS that because there are more of us? Or are we a morally bankrupt color? Or do we have more money and it is a financial issue? Or does it go back to the days of plantations and civil war? Come on. Aren't we past all that? Are the guns targeted against one people? Are racists gun owners? Or are gun owners racist? OR... Is this just a liberal article written with poor resource and experimentation process meant inflame conservative thinkers?

You tell me.

I'm Alive, MrG~

Thank you for noticing I have been ABSENTminded. Work has been kicking my booty as has been the recent book...now available. It may have a sequel...but only one. Maybe three, depending on the twists. Boogie Man Three will be available later. I am having issues with it. Writer's block...or maybe too much wine...or maybe I shouldn't let the dog do my homework.

My life is settling down. Many of you may not know, but I chose to close the shop, Jailhaus Rocks. I got me a job. With benefits. Nice benefits. I found along the way in my new book of life, that some asshole had ripped out some pages, so I had to take some detours to get to the next chapter. Finally, here I am.

Anycraziness, here is my first fiction...The Last Song of the Meadowlark. I don't know if anyone will like it. It's a short story. I guess you will tell me, good and bad.
 
Now...on to some posts and topics of interest!

The Asylum

I am very proud to introduce you to a very talented lady, Mrs. Mom. Let me first say this is the first of two posts. The second will come later. This lovely lady and I have never met but we are great friends. She is also great friends with my buddy GunDiva whom I miss very much. We all love sex and The Walking Dead, but not together or with each other. We talk about it all the time on Facebook because that is what girls do behind boys' backs. And Daryl is HAWT!
 
Mrs. Mom is also great friends with my favorite peeps, Bill and Juanita Martin of Allenspark Lodge and GunDiva is their daughter. See how this works. We are all related. Mrs. Mom, GunDiva, and I have plans to meet up in Savannah, Georgia by saving for the trip. We hope next year, but we will see how our lives go.
 
But this is a post about art and craft. She also does custom work. Ask her about it.
 
Brief intro...Mrs. Mom is married to Lt. Handful. See how we are all closely knit? We all love guns, dogs, horses, kids, ...yeah in that order. Just kidding! All of us love our family first and that includes each other.
 
Mrs. Mom has been there for me during my darkest hours of loneliness, not in a sexual way, but if I were gay she would be one of my wives. She was emailing me during my first divorce, my miscarriage I blogged about, my second divorce, my teenager problems, me being a bitch on my period,...blah, blah. You get it. She is a very caring and wonderful person. She also blogs with GunDiva and has her own personal site....here. She also is very artfully gifted.
 
Check out her interview with me and her amazing products. Let me just tell you her prices are very affordable and very high quality.
 
Give us a brief bio (clean version) LMAO
 
Married with 3 wild boys, life is filled with adventures with the dogs, cats and horses.
 
Wow. Three boys. Yes, your life is full of adventure and you tell great tales on your blog, Oh Horse Feathers. I included the link for the readers. Love your southern humor.
 
Favorite inspiration in life...(quote, person, event, attitude)


* Knowledge weighs nothing. Learn as much as you can.
* Pay it forward.

Great ones! I like the last the best.
 
Your work is not only a craft, it is an art. What got you started to market it as a business? I am including your business Facebook page link is here...https://www.facebook.com/TheAsylumCreations
 
This necklace is gorgeous! I want it!
 
 
My husband, for a period of time, ran a local gun range. One of his vendors was not overly reliable in producing quality Survival bracelets. He brought one home one evening, tossed it into my lap and said, "Can you learn how to do this, but better?" Challenge accepted! We began producing bracelets, which morphed into other items, such as rifle slings, dog collars, horse tack, jewelry, and gag gifts. 
 
What is your most popular product and why? Your custom man thong?
 
 
Woo hoo! Well, that was a special order. Hard to say what our most popular item is- bracelets for charity events and rifle slings make up the majority of our orders. In there for a close second would be puppy identification collars, which I make by the dozen for a Rottweiler breeder we know. Got to tell the puppies apart somehow when they are tiny and look so much alike!
 
I am so in love with your rifle slings and puppy collars!
 
Rifle sling-Liberty
 
 Rifle sling-Desert Tan
These are puppy collars you made for a breeder. I understand you make them for any size dog with custom work?

Yes. I do. I can make about anything custom. Your wish is mostly my command. LOL
 
 
Your items are very high quality art and have great design. How did you learn to make all the different varieties of products? These Arabian halters are fantastic! Look at those crystals!
I miss my Morgans...they would have looked styling in these! (Poop. Shit. Miss my horses and the country. )
 
I bet you do, Momma! These halters are very popular!
 
Sorry, I got distracted by bling bling. Tell me about how you learned these knots.
 
YouTube is my friend. I can watch a few videos from master craftsmen, such as T.I.A.T. (Tying It All Together), and put my own spin on knots as well. After you learn the basics, the only thing that can limit you is your imagination!
I know you have been involved in some charity fundraising with your artwork. Tell us about that and why it is important.
 
Through the years, there have been many people who have been there to help us out when we needed it most. By being able to help others with our fund raising items, we can pay that help forward. 
 
Anything you would like to add that I haven't asked you?

I totally suck at these! No, you didn't! I love your candid answers! Thanks, Mrs. Mom!
 
Thank you so much, Mrs. Mom, for putting up with my shenanigans and showcasing your wonderful talents! Just in time for Christmas, I might add! Check out Mrs. Mom's creations on her Facebook page and blog site. She is a doll!
 
And yes, us girls will continue to talk sex behind all your backs. Why? Because we are girls. We might talk about other things as well...and we might be OK with talking about Daryl and sex. But not Zombie sex.

The Boogie Man Series

Halloween is over at the Harry Potter house. We are moving on to the next round of fun...Thanksgiving.

In celebration of Book Three from the Boogie Man series scheduled for release before Christmas, and the  release of my first fiction novel end of November, I have a surprise for those that could not afford a book or wanted to wait for a price reduction. It's a Thanks giving to all of you faithful followers and readers. So pass the word to your friends and family if you know anyone that wants a good deal. Can't guarantee the books are any good, but they are cheap. And cheap is good. Wait, I think I just contradicted myself.

Oh, and quit your belly aching about getting ripped off and spending more than the new Boogie Lovers! I am going to put the new fiction on special price. The new Boogie Man is also less than the first two. Yay! And I will jack it up for those that want to read it later just to get the even playing field with all the book worms. Not really. But makes you think about ordering it right away, doesn't it? Great marketing ploy. :)

On a similar note...you can download a free Kindle app from Amazon to any computer or tablet...droid phone...blah blah. Check it out!

I have put the Boogie Man series on special Kindle Countdown. It runs for a week. First price on The Boogie Man  is .99 and the Rookies is $1.99. Price increases by the end of the week.




Next up this coming week...more book reviews...and a special story about a friend in Georgia. No, Coffeypot, it's not you, but we could talk about some good ones!

And....Yuri has given a new topic of discussion which is da bomb! Might be controversial, but I found it most interesting. Stay tuned~
