See how it goes when you turn it around. Art restricts fixed structures. The "truth"
lies somewhere in between.

Yeah bigmouth, now what? Hunting Season ended yesterday and you're still up this damn tree trying to bag a deer. Where's Jessie? He's in the lodge, eating cracking cornbread and drinking Sweet Lucy whiskey while I ain't et since Thursday.

"I'll eat when I climb down from the damn treestand to get the nine point food that I shot", my bigmouth had said.

This is my third day in the tree. I'm hungry, I'm thirsty, I'm hallucinating. Last night I dreamed that fat and well antlered deer were everywhere, behind each bush, up in the tree, even flying about in the sky. Then I woke up to a gray sky and empty woods. But wait! Not fifty yards away in the foliage I heard a russle. The evergreen leaves moved slightly as the deer came closer. I raised my Remmington and fired and heard a scream. Hmm, I thought, deer don't scream.

"Oh Sweet Jesus" I cried. "I've shot Jessie!"

APE - APOLITICAL

A great short story, jj, I loved it - close to the objective but, I fear, no cigar! the second word was FOLIATE, not FOLIAGE

So, this one is still open, I believe?

Sweet jj - remeber the words of Baden-Powell: " The [person] who never made a mistake, never made anything!"

So far as I'm concerned, well; mistakes [shrug] I've made a few; but then, again, too few to mention. laugh

Listen loverboy, I've been to picture shows and indoor dances. You can't fool me. You stole that pick-up line from Frank Sinatra...

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way


I have the record. grin

Yes dear BranShea; good lines, I've stole a few [shrugs] but then, again, to few to mention.
So I won't.
Unless I'm caught, and put in detention. frown
