Dr. Seuss My Yard

I may have gone a bit overboard at Costco this morning. But to be fair, you can’t buy just a few of anything really. They got their Spring bulbs in. The ones you need to plant in the Fall. I bought only four packages, about 112 bulbs. All of them cute purple puffs that look like something Dr. Seuss would create. I have been wanting these for a long time, and I wasn’t going to miss out again. Hubby wasn’t too thrilled, but I bought him a gift for his grill, so he stopped growling for almost a full minute.

Josiah Trenchard and the Might of Fortitude: Space Navy Series Book 1
by Jonathon Fletcher
4.4 Stars (56 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction | Science Fiction & Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

The “Space Navy” series is a blend of space opera with a heavy dose of military science fiction and horror. A sci-fi thriller series which has been described as “Star Trek meets Full Metal Jacket”.

Josiah Trenchard is a no-nonsense, foul mouthed, alcohol-fuelled action hero. He’s one of the roughest, toughest troopers in the fleet; a soldier of distinct morals and a renowned lack of tact, who is less “space marine” and more Sean Bean’s “Richard Sharpe”.

Trenchard’s been fighting hard in the bloody war that’s been raging between the United Worlds and the insurgents, ever since the uprising on Mars, soon after colonization. The insurgents wage a guerrilla war of I.E.D. ambush, assassination and terror attacks. The navy troops live, fight and die by their motto: “Honour, strength and unity!”

Trenchard was almost killed during that first great battle; scarred both physically and emotionally. He lost friends and comrades and was given a scar by an unknown assailant, a woman he’s searched for ever since. Now, he’s fighting the increasingly desperate insurgents once more when he’s unexpectedly re-assigned to an untested, prototype vessel and thrown into a series of deadly adventures that will test his mettle to breaking point.

The Wolverine class vessel, the “Might of Fortitude”, has been designed to be the deadliest hunter-killer star-ship in the fleet. The cramped, submarine-like spacecraft is about to be launched on her maiden voyage. While hunting bloodthirsty pirates who have unleashed a reign of terror throughout the asteroid belt, Trenchard struggles to cope with a woefully inexperienced crew of misfits and reprobates and puts his life on the line to save his ship, his crew, and the honour of the Space Navy.

Can Trenchard save the day? Will he ever get a quiet glass of rum and a smoke? Snap on your armour, grab your trusty “Vicar” rifle and board the Might of Fortitude to find out.

What Is It Up To?

I was too busy all day yesterday to feel the effects of not having cable TV, until it was 8pm. This is pretty normal for me to be going going going until the later hours in the evening. Hubby knew I would go nuts if I didn’t have my Hallmark Channel, so he downloaded a new streaming service on a one week free trial basis. It has all the channels I want and more. I am not sure why we took so long to switch over. Actually I know why. It’s because I am set in my ways and hate change. Lately I have been agreeing to a lot more things that hubby has been wanting to change for a while, but I wouldn’t budge on. Now I am suspicious. What is happening? It’s times like these that I wonder what my brain is up to. Why is it being so agreeable? My body has been too tired from biking to be up to any mischief, so I know it won’t cause me to much trouble right now, but brain… that one is a sneaky one. It wants something….

FREE for a limited time

Never fall in love with your best friend…

I met Hal on the first day of high school.
I also fell in love with Hal on the first day of high school.
But although we were good friends from the start, I knew he’d never be mine.
He’s gorgeous, confident, sexy, and he’s also incredibly rich.
I’m scarred – physically and emotionally – quiet, and my family has always been poor. The two of us are poles apart.
So I’ve trained myself not to think of him in that way.
Not to think of kissing him, undressing him slowly.
Of sliding beneath the bedclothes. Of having his hands on my skin.
I don’t think of it at all.
I can’t. Because Hal never stays with a girl for long, and if he were to have me, then leave me, my heart would break into a million pieces, and I’d never be able to put it together again.
But then he tells me he’s fallen in love with someone. I try to guess who, and he just smiles.
“Izzy,” he says patiently, “it’s you.”
Oh no.
