WIP Wednesday is Late for the Dance

My second official Loathsome, Dark and Deep contest starts tomorrow (at least I'll post the "rules"). I'm also going to give away a book, or better, having you help me give away a book. Make sense? Er...okay.

I'll explain...promise.

Today, I want to introduce you to Ron's Bait and Tackle:

Ron’s Bait and Tackle was a bent-backed grey mule of a shack at the corner of State Highway 15 and Old Miller’s Road, the later of which ran over a few hills and swooped around a curve until it ran into Lake Lotawana. It was the special hub of fishing action for Boone County, far enough outside of Boone’s Hollow to be free of the town’s more stringent laws regarding the sale and consumption of alcohol. The poor taste of the citizens of Boone County insured all the beer sold at Ron’s was domestic, in a can, and sold from an iced-down stock tank in Ron’s back room.

I'll bet those are the bastards responsible for Boone's Farm "wine" too! Jerks!

(Got me through my freshman year of college, though...)

"The poor taste" of those poor citizens. Tragic.
