Some fellows can say things in the wry way and force one to chuckle, despite the context:

WICHITA, Kan. –

Darnell says his trunk full of things, is all he has left from his home.  He says he and his friends were playing cards in the basement Friday night when things got out of control.  Neighbors said they heard loud voices arguing and then more noise.
“I heard 4-5 gunshots after that,” said neighbor, George Neill.

Police say when officers arrived, Darnell’s house was engulfed in flames.

Not difficult to imagine the emotions involved there.

I’ve finished Lowell’’s Traders Tales series. I was a bit put out during reiterations of previous books and it spoiled things just a mite. I realize that when one writes a series continuity is important, especially when dragging alone many characters over a writing period of years.

The reader isn’t so lucky, some times, when they read the books en-mas as I did. Things remain fresh in ones eye and repeating spoils the story. I generally enjoyed the light reading however. Enough so I cast out of mind those hiccups and got on with it.

I’d read the last book, Owners Share, before and will read it again before I put the series away, just ot get the feeling of the whole series.

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.
