Bow and Black Powder deer seasons opened a week or so ago. These fellows are just a might short:

WICHITA, Kan. –

Wichita Police are looking for burglars who stole dozens of hunting bows from a store on W. Harry.

The front door of Diamond Archery was pried open at around 4:00 Tuesday morning. Surveillance video shows three people wearing hoodies come in and take 30 compound hunting bows valued at around $24,000.

They didn’t seem to have gotten any arrows, however. Another short sighted move.

The deer are being moved around. A number of cars are resting along the highways having received bloody noses from encounters with deer during the day. Any hundred pound deer at sixty miles an hour does considerable damage.

Housekeeper increased her vehicle insurance from liability to comprehensive last Thursday after a near episode with retreating and spooked animals. Smart lady.

She seems to be treating this vehicle with a care she has not shown for any other vehicle she has owned. A remarkable change in attitude. Finally found a vehicle she both likes and can take pride in. That’s a good thing, and one I’d almost not expected from her.

I got some eye drops from the eye doctor. Free. One of the bottles was almost empty I discovered after opening it. As I dislike freebees as a general rule, I didn’t bitch to the doctor for giving away samples that are short of the real thing, so I ordered some of the same stuff from an on-line store.

After it was all said and done I received the billing from the store. The price had doubled. It was the postage that did the dirty work. If it weren’t for the fact I have a critical eye exam tomorrow I’d have opted for normal mail.

Or, it might have been wiser to put the eye doc on a quilt trip. Which is almost impossible. She’s heard most of what I’d have to say anyhow.

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.
