Church bells are ringing. I sit at the window, watching the good people all gussied up and headed for the church, where they'll listen to the preacher man talk about the fires of Hell. If I could get through these bars I'd show them what Hell was all about and I'd start with that damned sheriff. Even he's all duded up and going to praise the Lord like a good little sheep.

Hard to believe that in a little more than 24 hours these good people will all be standing around cheering while they watch me swinging from a rope.

    I'm going to try and post at least one drabble every day. This place is drying up so I'm going to do my part to keep it going.

    Excellente! I might do a western focused around a bemasked Wild West moneylender and his Native American sidekick. The Loan Arranger.

    Thanks, Jamie. I've already broken that pledge, though. Yesterday was a crazy day.

    As a campanologist, I have swung on a few ropes and held the sallies.
