The village parade is over. Lots of emergency vehicles with bells and whistles, and sirens.

Big trucks that bend in the middle and go shoo, shoo.

Motorcycles of all descriptions and hordes of kids on bicycles. An airplane, antique cars, visiting dignitaries (elections in Nov), even a couple of dogs.

Things are quiet right now. A ball game with loud trucks and screaming kids and women went until one AM last night. Mud runs and tractor pulling later this after noon. All the various booth functions are going on right now and the fishing contest is about to end  in an hour or so.

The four wheelers lost their flags and, because of the drivers restrictions on public roads, many of the teens thinking they’d get to drive in the parade were dissuaded by the sheriff.

Which might be a good thing.

A late night activity, other than another ball game, is the hay  ride.

And then we can wait with bated breth of next year.

Sigh.

Speaking of bothersome things

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.
