Police identify victims of double-homicide

Overnight police chase ends in crash

Man Critically Hurt in Overnight Shooting

Perfect Fall weekend

Supreme Court allows Texas voter ID law

Man breaks into home

The above links are to the top twelve stories from Wichita Ks today. Depressing aren’t they.

I’m munching leaves today. Cracking up the walnuts with the mulching mower. I didn’t have a bumper crop this year, but enough to convince two squirrel families to house themselves in the Elm tree tops for the winter.

My munching and mutilating the walnuts may convince them to find homes elsewhere other than my property – I was planning on re-establishing my bird feeders, but now I’m not certain.

College football later today. The BBQ will be in operation also after a few weeks of inactivity. Country ribs. Boneless pork.

Drat. Five more calls for political surveys. Someone out there is worried.

I did get one interesting call. A disgruntled out of season bird caller. He called to tell me I suck. They were out the other night and I just watched them without going out or letting the dog out.

The night after they came by with the Dove call and a very quiet duck call. And the night after the duck call walked the road and the dove tromped the mid-calf Bermuda  grass. That is one persistent individual, tromping Bermuda that high. He’s the driver of a tiny orange four wheeler. He looks ridiculous, a six foot grown late twenties man on a kids four wheeler.

Not sure if that is all he can afford  or it was the only thing he could steal without fear of the owner going to the police. No matter, I suppose, as I do have some nice picture of him knocking on my windows at 1030 pm or so. Love time/date stamps on pictures.

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.
