Understanding it is a natural function – but it is raining.

One of those slow, slow, the drops are small but heavy, it is that we must dump this on you, type of rains. It isn’t going to stop. The kind of rain one imagines the tropical regions experience during monsoons.

Which shouldn’t surprise me, should it? I mean, considering its the hurricane finally making its way here.

Welcome it is.

I finished the Renters requested work about eight AM yesterday. About noon the sky’s spit and paused, until finally about seven last night started its soaking of the area. Its not paused since.

Good 4th. Heard from my brother (via e-card). Good enough. The neighbors did their fireworks thing and Big Fat Rooney came over for a beer. I had Coke and I BBQ’ed Country Ribs.

A pleasant day.

Played poker at Poker Stars, Full Tilt and Poker Academy. Ran into quads – holding the house. A straight flush holding a house, again a straight flush holding a flush and finally, I ran into a sad story gone wrong when I reviewed my play.

It’s those big bets at the end I shouldn’t call. I just know it.

Thanks for the visits.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
