Clear. Mild and every dog in town is tied out – and taking voice at whomever pokes their head out doors.

A sub-benefit to the near neighbors trailer theft has been the deputies finding pictures of all the creepies that have been window peeking and throwing sticks on the grass. There’s been a positive lack of them about lately.

That and the sudden cessation of fire crackers being amplified by culverts and other means of echo. That’s a nice thing – for the neighborhood dogs at any rate. The protesting village councilor that defended his grandson found out the little critter was one of the prime firecracker throwers.

Yes. That did tickle me. Although I must admit that I’m a bit sorry for the man and am inclined to believe that he might not run, as he swears he won’t, next election.

It could be more because he could not get rid of the mayor and his non-elected advisory person than any real desire to get out of village politics.

As this seems a retro-spective writing, here’s an up date on a murder at WSU I brought us several weeks ago:

Man charged in death of Wichita State student

Emporia Gazette
– ‎14 hours ago‎

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A Wichita man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Wichita State University student.

As a more personal thing: I’ve been practicing that instrument I graced myself with. A song popped up in the book that I wanted to play.

I went over it playing each note separately about ten or eleven  times. Then I played it for myself as a whole. It was very pretty and I liked it. Wonderful music, it struck  a cord (tongue in cheek).

I’ve tried about twenty more times to capture that playing and have failed. Utterly. I cannot find the notes.

Sigh.

Life’s tough for the righteous.

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.
