Finished the books for the first quarter. It is a gloomy, rainy day.

Not near this bad, however:

Parsons Reacts to Proposed Death Penalty in Quadruple Homicide

PARSONS, KANSAS – If David Bennett Jr. is found guilty and sentenced to death for the murder of Cami Umbarger and her three children in Parsons , he will be the 10th Kansas inmate on “death row”. Kansas was the last state to re-instate the death

A big weekend in motor sports; probably a big day overal. Summer starts this weekend. A hundred and so days of summer.

Four days of feeding the calves range cubes and the silly things about break legs running across the gullies getting to the bucket. I think I’ll have to vary the time of day I give them the treats.

They do keep an eye on the house and shop, though. Every time I move out the door I have a couple of them looking across the field at me. About like dog when I’m cooking steak – or BBQ for that matter. Dog likes the pork rib bones.

A young man from Ill stole his girlfriends car and set it  on fire near the county seat here in Ks. A not nice thing to do. The police found and arrested him on the 9th of May. We got him for arson, Ill want him for theft and something else.

And vehicle accidents continue to happen, killing off the citizenry. A vehicle went airborne and smacked into a combine (think about that one). A couple of other went head to head, killed a couple of folks. Four weeks ago a couple did the same and killed seven.

Yesterday I came across two deer, road kill. No evidence of vehicles in the area, but blood everywhere across the road.

Maybe its time to slow down and enjoy the summer. But I flat refuse to go riding bicycles.

Ten Whiskey

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.
