Quite possibly I should post a picture and hit publish. I mean, today was Housekeepers day. Every other Wednesday; and over the years I’ve published a Housekeepers post every other Wednesday, or at least on the Thursday.

Because something always tickles my fancy.

So in the interest of vanilla flavored anything, today I should just kiss it off. She skipped two weeks ago, but I wrote a thing about her skipping a day. My house, I knew, would regret it. And it did.

“I knew the place would be filthy,” she said, “you don’t even own a vacuum cleaner.”

Well, that was a true statement and I couldn’t fault the logic, really; and we began to talk of many things.

One of those things was my internet provider. Housekeeper doesn’t care for them. She told me she had gone to Direct TV or Dish TV, one of those two.

That allowed me to probe into that type of programing as I’m on cable. Housekeeper seemed very happy with what she’d done and was enthused with the ability to select a small “must take” package of channels and then select single programing of self selected other channels.

And she said: “I was able to use the kids/adult lockouts.”

What? Said I.

After thinking of it for a while she related that “I went in and blocked things like all the X Rated and some of the R Rated programing.”

Why?

“Well, I didn’t want my husband watching those programs.”

You mean you password blocked access to them.

Yes.

And you didn’t give your husband the password to unlock them.

That’s right. (A Cheshire Cats grin, on a delighted face)

But you are only two people watching that TV.

Yeah. That’s right. Neat isn’t it? I love it.

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.
