Rain is passing by us. The darned grass is greening up and growing again. Which means I’m out mowing heaver grass than I had this spring.

All of which is a good thing.

Farmer down by the house I like so much, tucked as it is into a hill side, has a bumper crop of hay. That’s a good thing, with exceptions. The exceptions are low demand, low prices for market hay, and the price of deisel went up.

Farming can be a tough life,if you do it for profit.


EL DORADO,Kan. — On July 1, a new law went into effect in Kansas, allowing residents carry a concealed firearm without a permit. Now, some counties are revisiting how it applies to their employees.

For Sedgwick County, the new law has had no impact as their employees are still not allowed to carry concealed guns in their cars while at work. When the law went into effect, the county policy was simply revised to line up with Senate Bill 45. They can still carry concealed knives.

I’ve been waiting for the arguments to start. This one is starting like the gay weddings/marriages started. First allow everyone to do every thing then start carving out exceptions and justifications for restrictions and finally realize it is all about control and the hell with insurance restrictions and liability.

Well. I started out one way and ended another, didn’t I. It doesn’t matter. The fight is engaged, I think. It’ll probably be low key as it concerns government workers, but will spill over into the civilian side eventually. The gun persons have the complete cake right now and will not really wish to change things.

Who’s side am I on? The gunny’s.

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.
