Lady Rougepen Presents: Yeehaw Words


Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play… Some words we still use from The Old West:

Ace in the hole – it literally meant the perfect hideout, or a well-hidden gun, but we use it to mean we have it made.

Bee in your bonnet – either upset, or a great idea.

Caterwauling –  to moan or sing badly

Fit to be tied – angry

Lickety split – rapid

Varmint – wild animal, or bad person

Yellow belly – coward

Yeehaw! I think that’s pretty cool. Tell me what others you know.



I’m pleased to announce the release of my 8th book, Skoll’s Diary.

Africans and African Americans left Earth in 1900, and went to another planet in The Milky Way to escape mistreatment…

It’s now the year 3005 on that terraformed planet. We get a peek into the life of a bright and sensitive teenaged boy, Skoll, through his journal. He loves his world, but is curious about life on Earth. Then suddenly, an epic event casts him in the middle of a difficult decision.  The fate of the planet’s community is in his hands.

Get the book here. I’d appreciate your leaving a review if you read it. Thanks in advance!
