And I thank one and all for the weeks break from the blog. The being tied to it day after day was becoming a drag; although it was not necessarily that in its entirety that caused the break, it was welcome.
My brother seems to have developed a growth on his liver. Biopsy pending. Visit was required. It is snowy in the Detroit area.
Wichita man gets 170 months for possession of child porn. 780 odd sexually explicit pictures.
One may remember that well uncovered in the central intersection of the village. It is still open, pending the council figuring out what to do with it. It now houses a Christmas tree, but the well is still open. I’ve wondered how the council will react if a child or an animal fall into that stupid well. It might be noted it is not lit, not guarded, is not fenced off; just in the middle of the intersection, with sixty feet of water in it.
I’ve found a contractor to fix the stair well where the lath and plaster fell down. Poor old house. We went around the property this morning and I pointed out the various things that bug me. He’s promised to get back with me Tuesday with estimates for the various jobs. I also found out that he is a misplaced FL native that married a Kansas girl. They lived in FL and that we’d met some 18 years ago. I’d forgotten. He hadn’t. I did some timber work on his father-in-laws place many years ago, the father has since died.
I liked the father-in-law. He worked at NASA before returning to Kansas and had retired from there when I met him. We had some interesting conversations (which some I even understood).
From the reaches,
