Bile, Bourbon and Bruce
Lovely combination you say? Thank you, I thought so too.
I wasn't originally going to put this in the post, but I saw a YouTube video yesterday, entitled "The Homeless Read Mean Tweets", frankly it pissed me off, and my gorge rose. Some people, with more dollars than sense, no doubt, had tweeted horribly mean things about the homeless. One mentioned she was 'sipping her latte when she saw a female hobo across the street' and that the sight made her 'want to vomit'; another wondered if 'home is where the heart his, were home-less people heart-less". I'm still pretty tweeked about it.
Kentucky produced up to 95% of the bourbon produced in the world. Some even say that bourbon was 'invented' here. Others (strangely enough, a historian from Louisville) propose that it was named after Bourbon street in New Orleans. Guess which side I'm on in that particular feud?
There's even a "Bourbon Trail", with nine distinct distilleries on the tour. You pick up a passport at the first distillery you visit, get it stamped when you visit each location and at the end of the tour, you get a free teeshirt. One place even lets you put your own wax seal on a bottle to purchase and take home.
Bourbon whiskey will be making at least one appearance in All Gallow's Eve.
Who is Bruce and what does he have to do with bile, bourbon and/or All Gallow's Eve? Well, now, let your gorge settle down and sit on a stump in the yard. We'll crack open a bottle of bourbon, (or have a cup of tea) and I'll tell ya.
Bruce McCoy is the male half of my main duo. Physically I know he is tall and has brown hair. His family are multi-generational residents of the county (as most of the families are). He works for the State Police and after yesterday, I'm thinking he is a former (minor) UK Men's Basketball Team member. (Hey! Basketball is another "B" that's talked about A LOT in Kentucky.)
Bruce enters the picture when he is called out to the female MC's farm, after she experiences an episode of vandalism. He has charge of the investigation of the incident at the school, after it is determined that it is a murder. Bruce offers some self-defense classes at the high school as part of the co-ordinated effort to help the students in dealing with what has happened.
The high school's female principal sees Bruce as possible date material and for whatever reason, sees J.C. as a rival for Bruce's affections. While it is true that Bruce and J.C. wind up not-really-working-together on the investigation, it is true that they spend time together or one reason or another. I haven't really decided if it's going to be a 'relationship' or not.
Anyway, that's it for today. Click the sunflower A to Z graphic at the top of the post to visit other participants (there's a total of 1.857, so feel free to take a couple of days - *lol*)!
