What’s to speak about?

How about that horse – California Chrome – huh? How about that horse. I didn’t have a penny riding on him. From the scandal sheet, lots of folks did. Three bucks and change returned on a single bet. Speak of favorites.

Then there’s the NASCAR All Star race. I enjoyed the qualifying as much as the race. The race was won by . . . by. . . Mmm, would you believe I can remember the horses name and not the name of the winning driver?

Huh.

Lagono said he came in second one year and no one remembered his name or his finishing position. I’d hate to inform the lad, but it is difficult to remember all the race winners in NASCAR. It’s rather a closed sport that way, what with thirty odd races a year. Kinda like baseball scores and winners each day, take a generalized idiot savant to keep track of it all.

Or maybe a sports writer.

And is there a generalized savant? Is that possible? I mean, outside of those that Alex Kravic finds for Jeopardy.

I pawed through several local paper articles this morning. In one article it was reported that a single person burglarized nineteen businesses in one evening. The kicker? The police said that the repair costs of the entries would far exceed the money or articles taken.

From the businesses broken into it wasn’t a crime of passion, for certain.

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.
