Last night about midnight, or would that be early this morning…, anyway, about midnight, Gus and Sam came roaring in the front door to tell us Chances house was on fire. The boys were sleeping there while Chance and Ada slept up here in our house. Ever since Chance broke his wrists he has beenContinue reading “If it weren’t for bad luck…”
Lies, and damned lies.
I have always hated a liar. I am not talking about someone who is good at BS’ing, but a liar. I always said, I hate a liar worse than a thief. At least with a thief you know they are going to try and steal from you. But you never know if a liar isContinue reading “Lies, and damned lies.”

I seem to be going back to my youth in my older age. When I was young, when I got home from school, I would usually grab my 22 single shot rifle and he’d out, afoot. Usually up northwest where we have a wooded creek. I very seldom shot anything, but you never know. MightContinue reading
