Notice the date line? Yeah, me too.

I’m suppose to have the guy over today, sometime, to install the wireless system. Good luck me.  So far I’ve only been waiting four hours.

Then there are things like:

Official: Motorist dies after jumping off bridge at Kellogg, McLean

The couple were having a discussion when the man pulled their vehicle over to the shoulder of the westbound lanes of Kellogg at the bridge over McLean. The man, who reportedly suffered from mental illness, got out of the vehicle, walked over to the side and jumped from the bridge. His wife, still in the vehicle, got out, looked over the side and called 911.

Oof, some discussion.

Then there were two coached getting all woozy and going to the hospitals. One because of the bad heart and the other because of undetermined causes – although the latter case was on the playing field and his team was ahead.

Like way ahead and they were suppose to lose. Which they managed after he went to the hospital.

There was good news. Well, a quirk in the news. You remember the Ks school bus taking a bath in the flooded creed? The one with ten kids on it? And all were rescued?

Good.W

The quirk was one of the kids on the bus father was one of the rescuers. How’s that.

Good stuff that.

The next one is a “Say What” kind of thing. Ten years ago unthinkable. Now, just attention grabbing.

TOPEKA, Kan. — A Kansas prison inmate claims he’s being discriminated against because the Department of Corrections won’t allow visits from his husband, whom he married legally in Iowa.

Christopher Yates is serving time at the Norton Correctional Facility for conviction on charges of identity theft and perjury. The 34-year-old has been in prison since 2012.

In letters written to the Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/17E39KS ), Yates says that prison officials will not let him see his husband.

A spokesman for the Kansas Department of Corrections says Yates’ spouse is not being allowed to visit because the spouse is on probation for his role in the crimes Yates committed.

An attorney for the national gay rights group Lambda Legal says Yates’ complaint is unusual but not surprising.

And I won’t reference it, but the Germans are recognizing a third gender.

Life was much more easily understood when I was a barbarian.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
