Rainy. Stormy, in fact. This late in the day things have settled down a bit and the heat is rising. Enjoyed the 69 degree sunrise , , , Well, lighting storm that passed for sunrise.

I’m feeling lazy today and not up to much with the writing thing. Dodge City, out west toward CO., they had a shooting:

Police say two dead in Dodge City shootings

Wichita Eagle
– ‎1 hour ago‎

DODGE CITY – Dodge City police say two people were shot to death at separate locations before the suspected gunman shot and wounded himself.

Not really sure what’s with all this stuff. With anyone allowed to carry now it is possible armed folks think first to protect themselves and then the no-goodniks reach to settle problems they’ve allowed to escalate before thinking “Oh, shit. That wasn’t thesmartest thing I’ve done.” and shoot themselves in self judgment.

Sigh.

Maybe after a year or so of the impulsive doing themselves only the occasional error  (outside the no-goodniks with intentions) will fire off a stray round or so.

A couple of the locals shot up a few trees down by the east/west creek. Pissed off the local farmer as, as the farmer said, the idiots didn’t shoot into the bank, just twenty yards away.

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.
