However, history isn’t kind in this area:

By Dan Voorhis

Matthew Riley believes he can change the world.

Riley, who is based in Wichita, is an inventor of internal combustion engines, and he says he has solved a problem that has puzzled automobile engineers for decades.

Quiet and warm around home. The yappy white dogs are out only occasionally – last night they ran a skunk under the front porch, and as is their wont, the skunk defended itself. The whole front room smelled of defensive armament.

Falling in the realm of “if your feet are cold, put your hat on”, I opened the back door to air out the front room.

Fortunately, the entire house escaped the funk.

The guy up the road suggested I shoot it. I asked him “the white dogs or the skunk?”

He just grinned.

He has told me he is not in love with those ‘damned white yappers’. Other than having opinions he’s a pretty nice guy.

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.
