Bigfoot--Do You Believe?

Image
In the middle of Southeastern Oklahoma, there are tales of a large, hairy, human-like creature who roams the forests.  Some of my brothers friends swear they have seen him, rambling outside my brothers' deer trailer in the middle of a clearing. The sightings made grown men drive crazily out of those woods in the middle of the night.
My mother and I took my niece and daughter camping a few years ago about 1/4 mile away from the deer lease spot, just over a wooded and rocky ridge in another clearing by the catfish pond.  We set up the tent, started a fire, and enjoyed sharing marshmallows and hot dogs as we watched the dogs play. 
Night fell and with no real lighting other than the fire, we opted to call it a night.  We each had cots in the tent and all was quiet.  The sounds of crickets, owls, and the occasional coyote howl worked as white noise to lull us to sleep.
Suddenly, I heard a sound like I had never heard before.  I lie there on the cot and swore I heard the Star Wars ch…

It's FFF time!!!

So, my friends and I are together once again for the Friday Flash Fiction. We use this picture and give our exact 100 word interpretation of what this says to us. What does this picture say to YOU?


“That crazy bastard thinks he’s gonna touch me after he groped that damn cat,” Tiana thought to herself.She knew she was helpless- he chained her to a column in the front room.“You be good now, or I’ll put tuna fish on your nipples, Princess attacks her tuna with her teeth,” he susurrated. Tiana attempted calm, but it was difficult as her captor’s eyes grew wilder each moment.He approached her and put the cat down by her lap.Without thinking, she wrapped the chain around the cat’s neck and snapped it tight.“Oh no, what did I do….”
Please visit my friends with their sizzling interpretations as well. I promise you will not be disappointed. We also have a compiliation of these posts on our blog http://flasherfridayfiction.blogspot.com/.

Snippet From WIP---something creepy this way comes....

Image
The evil Shadow killed once again and he took his prize--her body-- to the top of Mount Evans, just outside Evergreen, CO. As he salivated at the opportunity to present her decaying carcass to his next victim, something else happened to thwart his plan----




"The Shadow once again screamed in rage at losing his possession. He knew she was gone, this battle won by the heavenly Creator. As he scrambled to improvise his plan, he left her car in the location at the base of Mount Evans. He left it unlocked with her cell phone inside. The heavily visited location drew scores of hikers and mountaineers. The Shadow knew someone would report her car to the proper authorities.

Perfect, one step closer to Colin's demise.

The Shadow needed to proceed with the improvisations in his plan; however, his hate affected his human-like appearance. The Shadow’s blackened skin scaled and peeled, his eyes turned yellow, appearing jaundiced, and his hands were twisted claws. The Shadow’s spa…

OOOOOOH the Excitement Builds

I love Halloween. I spent the day today, in between coughs and sneezes, decorating for Halloween.
For the past fifteen years or so, I've wanted to be Poison Ivy. But, have never taken the time to find all the right pieces to make the costume work.



I fear if I wait too much longer, I'll be Geriatric Ivy and won't really rock the costume. I'm pushing it now as it is. (I keep reading the over 40 articles telling us what we "can" and "cannot" wear, ugh)


I was Amy Winehouse last year, I so much love her music and still saddens me we will not hear new music from such a talented soul. My beehive was not as commanding as hers, but, I just do not have the gift of hairstyling.
So, putting the question out there, who of you will be dressing up? And, puh-leaze, send me pictures, if you will, and I will pimp you rocking your costume here on my blog.
If pictures aren't your thing, please send me your creative suggestions for what you will dress …

What does this picture say to YOU? Is this woman satiated, or does she need something more? Should he just put down his smoke and grab her by the hair? If you aren't sure where to begin, check out the interpretations my friends had in exactly 100 words. Enjoy!

Inspiration

Inspiration is found in many places, with the company of certain people, in the music we listen to, etc. I found some inspiration this past week during our CA trip. In the locker today are some shots I took of a few of the beautiful things we saw. Enjoy:

Snipped from Current WIP--enjoy!

The Shadow knew that she kept her bike on the back of her small SUV. She also maintained two water bottles in two cages mounted on the frame of her bike. The Shadow had just the perfect performance enhancing concoction to ensure his success on her final ride. One Friday night, as she lay sleeping-resting for her third Saturday of the month solo ride-The Shadow injected both bottles with his magic brew.
He anticipated that by uphill mile three, she would pull a long drink from the first bottle. She would then begin to feel dry mouthed from the chemicals. She would then take a longer pull from the bottle somewhere around mile seven. She would become dizzy around mile ten, and by mile twelve, she would dump over as the chemicals rendered her unconscious.

CONTRACT TIME!!
