Re: Doing Time

Sorry for the delay. I do try to write everyday, but stuff happens. Computer is only a couple months old but its freaking out. Word still isn't usable yet. Oh, yeah, my long suffering fiancé and I went out to Las Vegas and had Elvis marry us. It was so cool! I had 9/10's of an update ready before ev...

One of the dogs was killed, toward the bottom of page 12.

Re: Doing Time

Trask slept well in his own bed the first night back. He was surprised to think of it as his bed, rather than the bed. The mission report had taken longer to write than he had figured on. Even after the changes he made, the damn thing read like fiction. After stopping for breakfast, he wandered into...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

PSA had their "No Step On Snek" lower receiver back in stock. I couldn't help myself and bought one.

Re: Concealed Carry choice

I ankle carried a S&W Model 36 .38 Special for a lot of years in the warmer months. I always hoped I never had to run. Carry a S&W Shield in a pocket holster during the warm months now. I can wear shorts again.

Re: Hey Vegas, I'm comin' for ya ... What to do?

I'll be in Vegas in a couple months and was looking at things to do also. As was mentioned, there are several zip lines that were new since I was there last. I saw a bar tour if you are into that. Supposed to be able to skip lines getting in. There is a big Ferris wheel thing, like the eye in London...

Re: Doing Time

The felons waited longer once they were together. Neither seeing or hearing anything to cause them alarm, the pair began picking their way through the thick brush, traveling west. The openings they came across were packed with prickly, blackberry bushes. The berries, they sampled were far from sweet...

Re: Doing Time

The men found the stairs leading down the hill. They eased down the hill, until they could see the empty, parking area at the bottom. “The dead are probably over by the river”, Trey said. They crossed the parking lot, entering the brush on the far side. The criminals followed a faint trail in the gr...

Re: Doing Time

The felons had a whispered conversation, deciding to go further up the natural elevation, where the dead attracted to the ruckus were unlikely to pursue. Hopefully the goons would concentrate on the burning boat and the helo out over the river. The men were winded by the time they reached the top, a...

Re: Doing Time

The escaped prisoners had no idea where they were on the river, not being able to see anything but black to either side. Trey, hoping that they had crossed the tunnels by now, was watching ahead for the outline of a bridge against the sky. He had no hate for the air crew, but if they collided with t...

Re: Doing Time

“Sergeant Keen, wake up” the insistent private shook the E-5’s shoulder. “Wheat. You better have an outstanding reason for bugging me” a voice growled from within a tangle of wool blankets on a cot jammed up against a sandbag wall. “I heard something by the river, Sergeant”. “May the good Lord prese...

Re: Doing Time

Joker resisted the urge to run because the search would be for a man running. People would remember a man running, trying to get as far away as possible. The sun had disappeared below the horizon and it was getting darker by the moment. He looked around quickly, but saw no observers and laid down ha...

Re: Doing Time

For three days, the new routine didn't change. Trey and Joker slept, read and did exercises to keep the blood moving. The food wasn't up to Peach's standards, but way better than prison food. Their guards were always familiar faces, but nobody they had really had any contact with. A tour for the gua...

Re: Doing Time

Sorry for the delay. Been getting my house ready to sell. :( The Cessna circled around for a final approach, gently touched down and rolled to a stop. Trask hopped out, walked within reasonable shooting distance of the dead, then dropped to one knee. "The rifle was much pleasanter to shoot with ear ...

Re: Doing Time

Trask turned to watch the small aircraft disappear. The sound of its engine continued to recede in the same direction, so the craft wasn't circling. Like the commander, the rest of the platoon also stared after the Cessna. "Lieutenant Alvarez, move the platoon off the road. Your men will be manning ...

Re: Doing Time

Joker had debated with himself whether to park in the hangar or outside. He'd decided on a parking spot outside, since the craft couldn't be seen from the road anyway. He chose one of the dozen spots in the parking area, attached the tie down anchors and screwed the static grounding cable into the r...

Trey and Joker watched the rest of their group depart for the farm, before starting to close up the buildings on the estate. The thief hadn't had much to say, so Trey was sure his friend had something on his mind. The cell mates drove down the sloping drive to the road and stopped to close the gate,...

South Dakota vacation kast month

We had a great time. Legally driving 80 mph was cool. Sioux Falls was nice. Driving to Rapid City we got sucked into stopping at the Corn Palace. Took a picture of Willie Nelson, but they were in the process of taking down Elvis. Of course we had to stop at Wall Drugs too. We saw Mount Rushmore, Cra...

Re: Doing Time

Captain Trask stood at the sink looking in the mirror, to begin the painstaking task of a morning shave. Getting in between the scars without cutting his face was the goal. Every morning, the thought that not even a beard wouldn't hide the ropes of shiny scar tissue, went through his mind. He was su...
