Thursday Thirteen #13

My lovely daughter turned 13 on Tuesday so this Thursday Thirteen is dedicated to her. Below find 13 wonderful memories with my daughter. Not necessarily in order!

1. The day she was born. It was Sunday afternoon, August 28, 1994.
2. Her first word. I tried so hard to get her to say Daddy but her first word was dog. She loved our dog from the first time she was able to turn her head and look at him.
3. Her first steps were at her Nana’s house. She was 10 months old.
4. The first time she really laughed. There is nothing like the laughter of a baby.
5. Her first day of school. She was so excited but I cried.
6. The day when she was three years old and she came with her father to pick me up at the airport. I’d been gone over night and I really missed her. She wore a dress because she was excited to have me come home. At that stage, she was refusing to wear dresses.
7. When my mom was alive, she spoiled my daughter rotten. One day we were at a store and she wanted something. I don’t remember what it was but I said no. Of course, my mom bought it anyway. As soon as Mom gave it to my daughter, she smiled at her and said, “sucker”. I’m not sure how old she was but she was young. All I could do was laugh.
8. Every day my daughter still kisses me goodbye in the morning and goodnight as she goes to bed. I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
9. Rocking her to step when she was a baby. Then just holding her and watching her breathe.
10. Playing I love you more, when she was little. She would keep it up forever. Sometimes I can still get her to do it.
11. Teaching her to read. Unfortunately, she didn’t inherit my love of reading but she is an excellent reader.
12. The day she cut a bunch of my flowers and brought them to me as a bouquet. I couldn’t be mad at her.
13. It’s almost impossible to pick out 13 favorite memories. Every day, every hug, every kiss is special. I cherish every moment with her. (Well, almost every moment )

Life as I know it is over!

Today my baby girl turns 13! I'm not sure where the time has gone just yesterday she started school or it seems that way. Now, she's a young lady and a beautiful young lady too. I can only imagine the horrors of the next few years. My husband is considering leaving home until she turns 21. I almost feel sorry for her future boyfriends for I know he'll grill them to no end.

She is our one and only daughter and we've love to keep her young forever. Baring that I'd like to fast forward to her finishing college, getting married and producing grandchildren.

I can wish, I do write fantasy afterall.

Modern day Abbott & Costello

You have to be old enough to remember Abbott and Costello, and too old to REALLY understand computers, to fully appreciate this. For those of us who sometimes get flustered by our computers, please read on...?

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, "Who's on First?" might have turned out something like this:


ABBOTT: Super Duper Computer Store. Can I help you??

COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.


COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.

ABBOTT: Your computer?

COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.?


COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.

ABBOTT: What about Windows?

COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here??

ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?

COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows??

ABBOTT: Wallpaper.

COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.?

ABBOTT: Software for Windows?

COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have??

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?

ABBOTT: I just did.

COSTELLO: You just did what?

ABBOTT: Recommend something.

COSTELLO: You recommended something??


COSTELLO: For my office?


COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office??

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!

ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.?

COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal What do I need?


COSTELLO: What word?

ABBOTT: Word in Office.

COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.?

ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.

COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?

ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".?

COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. What about financial?
bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with??

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?

ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.

COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer??

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?

ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.

COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?

ABBOTT: One copy.

COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money??

ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.?

COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?


A few days later:?

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off??

ABBOTT: Click on "START?

42 and counting!

Today is my birthday! What have I learned in 42 years? Well, I've learned alot but most of it is useless or can't be mentioned here
I have learned that life goes on even when you don't want it to.
If you are ambitious enough you can make your dreams reality.
If you get up on the wrong side of the bed. Lay back down and try it again.

Most importantly, I've learned that without family and friends you have nothing. (This includes my online friends.)

Excerpt: They Both Belong To Me

Excerpt Of They Both Belong To Me

They Both Belong To ME will release from Ellora's Cave on September 21, 2007.

“That infernal buzzing is driving me insane. Doesn’t she know we can fuck her better than any simulation device?” Johann Zcar cursed. He’d just passed Commander Jill Mahall’s quarters. The scent of her arousal and the sound of her vibrating wand had him near eruption.

“Come here. You have to read this,” Talon Yild beckoned him in an amused voice. “I happened to have a duplichip in the main frame today while Jill conferred with Ali from Space Command. You’re not going to believe what it recorded.”

Johann’s eyes quickly scanned the document. “Fuck.”

“That’s right. When we dock on North Star in two days our Commander intends to have two pleasure droids fuck her brains out.” Talon spun his chair sideways. A cocky grin stretched his lips.

“Jesus.” Johann almost exploded at the thought of Jill with two droids.

“Look at this. Her order form to Heavenly Droids.” Talon’s fingers worked the board and an order appeared with an attachment.

“Is that…”

“Our digital images. She wants her droids to look like us. It appears Jill is hot to have our cocks plugging her,” Talon replied smugly.

“Do you think…?” Johann stopped in mid-sentence. Talon rolled his chair closer, brushing his thigh, and a jolt of awareness assaulted him. Johann narrowed his gaze on his friend’s face. Talon was almost beautiful but Johann had never been attracted to a man before. These sudden urges for Talon were unsettling.

“That we should take the place of the droids? Hell yeah. If sweet Jill wants our cocks, she’s going to get our cocks. Why allow her to have droid cock when we’re more than willing to oblige her? The question is, when do we tell her?” Talon turned and their gazes collided. Talon’s eyes dilated and his lips parted on a heavily expelled breath. Sharp desire rocked Johann.

“I…” He tore his gaze from Talon. They were discussing Jill. It was Jill he wanted to fuck. “After we’ve fucked her into total submission, I envision telling her while my cock is buried up her ass.” Johann could imagine Jill’s tight ass turned up for his cock. His cock twitched as an image of Jill kneeling before him entered his mind. Her tight nipples played peek-a-boo through her long blonde hair. Her silvery eyes turned misty as she parted her full lips, waiting for his cock.

“She could relieve us of duty.”

Johann looked back at Talon and suddenly his image replaced Jill. Talon’s lips parted for his cock. Talon’s ass turned up—dammit. He had to stop those images. Johann shook his head. “I don’t know how I’m going to last two days. We should just go to her room now and give her what she wants.” It was the abstinence causing those feelings. It had to be. They’d both been hot for Jill since they’d first seen her. He’d pulled a few strings to land this assignment six months ago. “We’d better wait. How are we going to replace the droids without making Jill suspicious?”

“I’ve already contacted Sally at Heavenly Droids and since we’ve given her so much business, she’s willing to help for a price.”

Johann’s lip curled as he thought of the droid they’d shared on their last visit to Heavenly Droid. It had been after they’d first seen Jill. The droid had had a remarkable resemblance to their Commander and they’d ridden it hard. Sally had sworn she would have to replace the jaw hinge.

“There’s always a price but this time it’ll be worth it. No price is too high to have Commander Jill Mahall on her knees before us.”

Feral Lust releases today!

Feral Lust by L.A. Day
Available today at Ellora's Cave.

Feral Lust

By the time she’d finished eating, she’d polished off her third glass of wine. “I’m stuffed.” She laughed, rolling over on the blanket and patting her flat stomach. “My jeans are too tight.”

“Take ‘em off.” Leon flashed a feral grin. “If it’d make you feel better, I’ll take mine off too.”

“Ha, real funny.” Scooping up a handful of cut flowers, she buried her heated cheeks in the array, sniffing the fragrant blossoms.

“Don’t you trust me?” Leon purred.

“Maybe, I don’t trust myself.” Her eyes fluttered up to meet his lust-filled gaze.

Leon’s grin vanished as he silently watched her. Golden eyes gleamed as he rolled to her side. “Leon,” she gasped breathlessly. His nearness played havoc with her nerves.

“Shh, I won’t do anything you don’t want.” Thick fingers rubbed her belly in slow but tight circles.


“Riza, I know you’re innocent. Trust me.”

Biting her bottom lip, she studied him. He hovered over her, the feral predator waiting to pounce. An involuntary shiver rocked her frame. Her pussy quivered from just the brush of his big body as he settled close to her and she clenched her damp thighs together. Her arousal fragranced the air and she knew he could smell her ripe scent. The scent that proclaimed she was nearing her heat cycle. Honorable males didn’t dally with females in heat unless they had serious intentions and she held that thought dearly as she made her decision. Throwing caution to the wind, she nodded. “Okay.”

A grin split his handsome face and her heart turned over. Oh lord, she would probably regret this.

His head lowered until his lips brushed her cheek. “Your skin is so soft,” he whispered at her ear. “I want to taste you.” His tongue dipped into her ear and she gasped as tingling sensations rode her spine.


“Relax,” he purred, his hand sliding from her hip to just below her left breast. “I won’t take you but I need to touch you, taste you. I need to see if you’re real, if what I feel is real.” His ardent plea stirred her deeply.
