WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) –

An 15-year-old boy has died following a shooting early Thanksgiving morning in south Wichita, family tells KAKE News.

Which reminded me that today is Thanksgiving and one should hope for a decent day. Which we have as far as weather is concerned.

I’m having, because I’m the cook, deep fried pork tenders, sweet potato’s French cut green beans. I also have plenty of ice cream and pumpkin pie. The fly in the ointment is the pie is store bought. I don’t have an oven. Which is fine,, really, as  I’m not much for crust.

The days football schedule is good. Very good.

I’m watching the Lions (first game). Good game. I got to thinking about a Lions game back when the Lions were holding down losing seasons in a row and the team they played was just as bad. I called that game the Turkey Bowl and suggested that the NFL schedule all the worse teams to play the annual Turkey Bowl. The trophy being a Golden Lombardy..

Times change.

I’m half tempted to check Wichita murder stats. It seems to me we’ve had a year of our share. And then some.

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.
