When all the cussing and feather pulling on the geese was over and I’d taken the packaged carcasses to Renter, he and I got to talking airplanes.

It appears that Beechcraft has managed to sell some of its AT-6 aircraft to another nation. That was a boost to the company. I asked about the Brazilian deal and he told me the swap of airframes hadn’t gone through.

(that last was a reference to a deal brokered by the dra-mama soon after coming to office)

Anyhow, I now have some goose to BBQ some time between now and mid-summer.

John Railtime commented on the Pot Exhibits at the Colo State Fair next year. I’d forgotten that his rail road group operated at the fair each year – never mind that he writes each years experience in his blog.

I heard from Linda, Dear Diary. She’s having mixed luck with here vehicle and her tournaments. She’s lost one and won one in the past two weeks.

The front that is bringing so much cold to the South came through here about  eight thirty p.m. the other day. It brought high winds, tearing limbs and dropped the temperature from sixty-five to five degrees in a matter of minutes, it is just now leveling off in the mid twenties.

And speaking of losing – or winning, depending on ones efforts:

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe train struck and killed a pedestrian in south Wichita early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

Wichita police told media on the scene the victim is an adult female and the incident appears to be a suicide.

The train’s crew called 911 at 3:21 a.m. to report striking a pedestrian at Harry and K-15, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. The woman’s body was found just north of the track on the west side of K-15. She was pronounced dead at 3:33 a.m.

Which has nothing to do with anything of mine, other than make me wonder if another way would have been much easier, to say little of less messy.

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.
