Cowboy and the cowboy hats
By Janice Seagraves
For those of you writing cowboy romance stories, don’t forget the cowboy hat. Whether it’s a Stetson, Indiana Jones, Sheplers, or Henschel, made out of straw or felt, a cowboy isn’t a cowboy without his hat.
Cowboy hats help the cowboy to dress up or dress down, and are occasionally tucked up under a form fitted plastic cover for those rainy days.
Have you ever seen how a cowboy use his hat to show emotion?
- Flinging down his hat can show anger or a desire to start a fight or finish one.
- Shoving the hat to the back of his head can show surprise. In this way you can see more of his face and his raised eyebrows.
- Lowering the brim over his eyes can show annoyance.
- Leaning back and hiding his face with his hat, he can show embarrassment, disassociation with what’s being said or a desire to take a nap.
- Removing the hat, he can lean in for a kiss.

I love growing tomatoes. My favorites are the yellow pear tomato. They’re a variation on the cherry tomato, and are considered a heritage plant.
My favorite gardening tip: To save your favorite tomato for the next years planting, squeeze out some of the seeds onto a clean napkin or paper towel and spread it out. Wait until dry, then store in a sealed container or Ziplock bag. When you’re ready to plant in either a peat pot, or into potting soil, simply tear out a seed or two (paper towel included) and plant. Done. Now water and wait.
And while you’re waiting, here’s some lovely almond blooms from around the house where I live. I bought a new camera on Cyber Sunday and waited until early spring, so I could take these photos. :)
Vach Namaste of the powerful Clan Namaste, a native of the planet, has desired the lovely Maya since she stepped off the spaceship on that astonishing day a year ago. He’s hounded her every step since. As Hymeneal Night approaches, he makes plans to take her as his bride… willing or not.
I also like to present my Christmas story. A two for one.
