Darth Vader’s Guide to Pumpkin Spice

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

The Death Star was nothing compared to Pumpkin Spice.

It’s everywhere.


   Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

We are facing a new, more virulent threat than Imperial stormtroopers.  I speak of Pumpkin Spice.


Brownies are brown and they don’t taste like pumpkin or spice!  Okay, pumpkin cheese cake does sound good.  I’ll give you that one.

What once was a spice in the bakery aisle has infiltrated a prodigious number of products, many of them non-edible and completely unrelated to the harvest season.


What have you done with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sandwich?

Now, I love pumpkin pie.  I even tried a pumpkin latte once.  But little did I anticipate these were only the vanguard of the full out invasion.   I took all these photos in about five minutes in two stores.  I can only imagine what awaits in the bath and candle stores. What I do not need is a candle that make me hungry!

Oh, now you are just messing with me.

Oh, now you are just messing with me.

Anyone else spiced out?


Wait…Is that a Pumpkin Spice bicycle?

I’d love to know what Pumpkin Spice products have invaded your home territory.  Be careful out there and may the spice be with you.

Got a favorite Pumpkin Spice product or one you love to hate?  

Let me know in the comments.

Life: Halloween Cats

Sunday, October 28th, 2012
Don’t worry, I’m working on my next paranormal romance for Nocturne and getting ready for the release of my next Western romance, THE TEXAS RANGER’S DAUGHTER, in February 2013.  But I wanted to give the cats equal billing this week as the dogs ran the Halloween parade last week.
So here are my top five Halloween cat costumes.
Number 5 – Not every kitty can pull off a bow and puffy sleeves.  She also has that angry princess glaring, which I appreciate.

This beauty seems to have spotted the woodsman.

Number 4 – This cat is cool and doesn’t care who knows it.

Eat your heart out James Dean

Number 3 – This cat loves the camera and also seems to love this stunning costume.  She will definately be ready for tricks or treats.

Elizabeth Taylor look alike.

Number 2 – This costume looks good on adults, toddlers and kittys, but it is the expression that makes this my #2 pick.  Precious!

A bee-coming costume

Number 1 – Funny always wins in my book.  A kitty dressed as a flightless bird tickles me and look how the owner has managed to get kitty’s whiskers through the eye holes of this penguin mask.

Wolf in sheep’s clothing?


I hope your Halloween is filled with treats and fun.
