1. Whoever said hell was hot had lied.

2. Jaret Walker crested the last hill and hauled back on the reins.

3. Thunder hauled him from a restless sleep.

1. Zeb Garrison didn’t think much of church or preachers, but he had to give Reverend Preston credit for striking a chord that hadn’t stopped echoing since Sunday morning.

2.  If Adelaide Clarke had been asleep like a sensible woman, she wouldn’t have heard the thump on her front porch.

3. Cassiopeia O’Rourke had been named for a constellation, but Heaven couldn’t have been further away as she stepped inside the Guthrie Corners sheriff’s office.

That’s all, ladies!  The Fillies are gonna tally up all the guesses for the winner of the $25 Barnes & Noble gift card.  Looks to me like they’l have to take off their boots and use their fingers and their pretty toes!  Check back for the winners of today’s prizes and the biggest prize of all!

When I'm not keepin' all these Fillies in line, I'm practicing my roping so I can catch me a cowboy. Me and Jasper (my mule) are two peas in a pod. Both of us are as crotchety as all get-out.
