Still find myself without inspiration. A cooler day today anyhow, and I’m enjoying it.

FOX News and Trump seemed to have declared a draw. One wonders how much of the RNC was involved in the spat.

A follow-up on a murder case:

Man, woman arrested in death of Wichita State student in dorm parking lot

The wrinkle there isn’t the woman, is it?

Last nights excitement in the yard was an in-heat cat. I mean, really. She was hugging the base of one of the elms and telling the world she wanted what ever it was she wanted.

Pity the things don’t go in heat in the day time. I could have used the hour and a half it took to get a decent shot with the pellet rifle.

Eventually, however, I did get in a decent shot and that was the end of that nonsense. The last  I saw of the cat was about three steps ahead of the three noisy dogs from two doors up the road. The four were headed East alnge the gravelled road.

Another grump? Sure.

The tree rats have lost respect for me and dog. Damn things run up and down a tree just off the porch out back. One, this early morning used the route with me standing within six feet and dog within eight.

Cheeky bugger.

I’ll need to buy more pellets for the gun. Hard work getting a decent sight picture in the dark with a single shot rifle, despite the target being a crean and light yellow target.

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.
