Friday’s Topic

Wow.  You sure responded to that one.  Fun to hear so many different viewpoints–we’ll have to have more of these discussions.

The consensus seemed to be:

Full moons ARE different from other moons–I’ve always figured it was simple physics, ie, if the moon pulls at the tides, why wouldn’t it pull at little ole water-filled us?  (This last one, according to my MoonPhase app, was the Wolf Moon.  Don’t you love that name?)

Black cats, like all small furry folks, are wonderful.  :) 

Some of you told great stories about things your grandmothers believed.  (My mom could never stand to see us play with crutches, I recall, because we might wind up needing them sometime.)

And you brought to mind one superstition I do believe in, because I’ve seen it happen so many times, growing up in a small town the way I did.  Big events–especially deaths–happen in threes.

Or maybe we just segment them that way.  :)

If you could pick one hero, from one novel or from history or whatever, and marry him, who would you choose?

    Christopher in "A Rose in Winder" by Kathleen Woodiwiss…sorry, Linda, but took Sam! I LOVE Sam, but I don't steal men. :) Question, Linda…how do you choose your character names? I've often wondered, names are so important to me, I just wondered how you do it.(I too have a black cat. 18 pounds of pure love, named Buddy.)

    Well I get leftovers, all the McKetterick men. Any one of them but otherwise Jackson Raines in the Raines of Wind Canyon series by Kat Martin. Maybe because I read it recently

    As much as I love the McKettrick men, my favorite is Murphy Malone from Nora Robert's "Born In Shame".
