That date up there means two things:

1. Another payday yesterday.

2. Another months worth of bills to be faced is underway.

Sigh.

Nothing much to complain about this day. I did hear one thing that did my :The way we use English: button punishment.

I heard a TV teaser. “We’ll tell you about the Bird Thief after the break.” The video that went with the teaser shower an object moving about.

It turned out that it was about a bird taking a cell phone. Meaning the bird was the thief.  The teaser gave the impression that someone had stolen a bird. Which got me to thinking about the difference:

Bird Thief

Thieving Bird

Don’t think about what you’d say; just say it and then think about it. I know you won’t thank me for it.

Employees fear Russell Stover candy exposed to ammonia

I know, it isn’t related to anything else in this post. Stover’s happens to be one of my favorites and I must now, temporarily, place them along side the now vanished Ice Cream Sandwich that turned bad.

The world is quickly turning gray and dreary.

One other item today. I caught one of my lawn desecrators in the act. Wish I hadn’t. It is the nephew of the village councilor. No longer a teeny bopper, but a young main in his twenties. Pity it takes so long for them to grow up.

I’d hoped that they would grow out of it.

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.
