Sixth “R” stories voting reminder . . . and photos

Two more days . . . that’s how much longer the Alphabet Challenge “R” Stories voting round is open.  

If you are a reader of our stories and someone who votes, thank you in advance for casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge R-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link Votes will be accepted until noon on October 20th.

And now, onto a few photos . . .

I’m really sleepy, so just one more . . .

The Gallery for these and other photos from “reminder posts” is HERE<<<link. The photos are the same size as if you click on the above, but the details — and quality — are better in SmugMug than here.

Some folks might be missing my longer offerings . . . and seeing as a lot of subscribers were not around in the early Disperser days . . . HERE.<<link That links to an older post about a visit to the Air Force Acadamy.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. Short of time today – will read tomorrow – always great short stories worth the time

      Life comes first. If you get to them, fine . . . if not, also fine.

      • The dog just hunted up a mouse in the backyard – which she did drop as we asked – and went in a promptly barfed up on the clean door mat/mud rug which hardly fits in the washer. Yeah, life is really a cartoon.
        Short distractions are so welcomed…mouse from the cluttered junkyard house behind us, not so. (But still, poison is just too cruel..drenching the fence with ammonia does work…if only those people and their little dogs would go inside….) Halloween and 2020. Perfect match

        You don’t own a mouse shotgun?!?

        I kid, of course. I don’t have one either . . . I use an AR-15.

        OK, OK, I kid again. Outside, I try not to kill anything. I make stuff less friendly (I stopped feeding birds because that attracts mice) and ensure there’s nothing that might be mistaken for a cozy abode by any critters.

        Inside, it’s trap-and-relocate for most critters (excluding ants and mosquitos) . . . although mice are not all that easy to trap (per previous experience). It’s been years since I’ve had occasion to engage in critter-control, either outside or inside.

    That’s an amber beauty you’ve got.


  3. Love the first photo! Words like soft, warm, rich, peaceful come to mind as I look at it.
    The second photo makes me think of a fancy dessert. I probably should have eaten lunch. Ha! I’m seeing food where it is not. :-D
