“Certain I am that retirement does not mean inactive. At least to others. They don’t let you vegetate.

We put that 11 year old to rest this morning. The one killed in the ATV accident. His family is well thought of round about.

Then there is Pastor’s daughter who turns 18 today, and all the women, plus the Pastor,, wanting to give her a surprise birthday party.

What a male can get out of giving a surprise birthday party is beyond me, but the females, about half the world of them, thought it was a good idea, but they wanted a male around to “Get this, fetch that, take the other . . . there.”.

That’ll keep you busy.

I’m not certain when I asked Pastor if this was a good idea and he said “Oh, yes.”, if he was enthused over the idea of a surprise party or if he is enthused with the idea of her now of an age he can show her the out door.

Or maybe find her a husband and he can breathe a sigh of relief.

Still, I don’t have to be at the party.I do have to help clean up tomorrow, however.

Women are a bother at times, I think.

Even if they aren’t yousr.

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.
