Forecasters: Wichita could miss heaviest snow of weekend storm

Wichita Eagle
– ‎13 hours ago‎

Wichita may not see 6 inches of snow this weekend after all, according to the National Weather Service’s forecasts on Friday, Dec. 25, 2015

And this morning it is cloudy, warm – warm enough in fact Dog want to stay outdoors and what he is watching is a mystery to me. But stare he does, out over the pasture, time passes and he stares out over the back yards of the neighbors.

Perhaps he is tracking the path of the dirty old man, his sled and those uppity reindeer.

Renter was over. Wished me a Merry Christmas, asked my opinion of the Presidential Candidates and gave me a severe case of allergy’s over something. He does this occasionally..  

I’m not sure if it is something he wears or some sort of spray he uses. I took two Goodies and was able to breathe again. Used up a whole roll of toilet paper as Kleenex  trying to keep up with the sinus.

  Minor problems, to be sure.

The visit did reveal that the gunfire, that sounded like a small family feud about a week ago, was Pastor and a friend of Renters shooting tree rats.

I’m here to admit that twenty rounds were fired and in rapid succession.  Renter said that the hunters were using a shotgun and a twenty-two rifle. The hunt produced TWO squirrels

I started to ask if the squirrels were edible at all after all those shots, but didn’t. Renter really likes Pastor and Pastor has enough on his plate being a Big City person pretending to understand country folks.

Self identity is hard enough at times without having to think on it.

So. Now if that weather report is true, it’ll be a good day. And if the Skins win and clinch a play-off slot, it’ll be a whoopee day.

“whoopee” with a lower case ‘w’. I don’t want to become too enthused about all of this, you understand.

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.
