Well, I went outside and fired my shots and I assume that Amos will do the same, even though the sun rises for him an hour or so after it does for me.

There was a little problem, however.

I loaded up my pistol and went outside and faced towards San Diego. Standing the approved dueling position, the muzzle of my pistol pointing at the sky, I lowered my weapon and pulled the trigger.

I fired several shots, emptying my weapon at Amos, aimed breast-high so that he wouldn't suffer anymore than he already was.

It is important to know that the temperature outside is well below zero degrees F. at the moment. And that the city had a pipe break and we've had rust-tinted water for some hours.

I mention this because each time I pulled the trigger the arc of water fired by my pistol froze. Frankly, my front yard now looks like it was visisted by a giant dog who left his "yellow rainbows" behind.

It really is kind of pretty, the icy arcs reflecting the light.

I hope that I didn't hurt Amos any in this duel to the death. He's usually an okay sort of guy, sometimes.
