Did you see it? Have you heard? I mean, Go-oo-l-ly. Out among the wide open pasture and the cow pies? The ‘Skins won a game! They did. By two points. ,

All kidding aside. I didn’t see the game. I was dependent on the score ticker. I was watching the NASCAR event. I don’t even know who won the race, however, and I do apologize to whomever for the take-of on the Football Song.

‘Grats to Manning. That was a game I saw.

And now for my downer. I’m squabbling with the eye doctor and her insurance group. I’m upset with them and feel slighted. I become very obnoxious when upset. Everyone tells me not to that – get obnoxious, that is. I’ve just gotten off the phone with them and I’m shaking with anger.

Anyhow.

The next item that has me wondering about reality is in two parts. I’ve got to separate the article as it was a long one. Headlines and then a couple or so excerpts.

Goliath encounter: Puppy-sized spider surprises scientist in rainforest

And then;

Birdeaters are not very common spiders. “I’ve been working in the tropics in South America for many, many years, and in the last 10 to 15 years, I only ran across the spider three times,” Naskrecki.

And then;

After catching the specimen he found in Guyana, which was female, Naskrecki took her back to his lab to study. She’s now deposited in a museum.

And tree huggers dote on this kind of crap? An extremely rare thing and it goes as a corpse? A reproducing being?

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.
