Today, I continued equipment repairs/readying. I removed the shields of the large mower and remounted the wheels. I removed the shields to check the belts and remove the mouse nests – the product of a long winter.

During lunch I surfed the net and found an interesting article. A long litany of names of many ages ; I was particularly intrigued by the name of the operation, which only a militant minded sadist could have come up with:

Several Suspects Appear in District Court in Newkirk


NEWKIRK — Those arrested in “Operation Can You Hear Me Now,” a raid conducted by state agents and local law enforcement on Jan. 23, continue to be arrested and appear in Kay County District Court.

How about for an operational name?

New Kirk is down along the Ks/Ok border. They’ve recently opened a new casino down that way and there are several Indian Casino’s just across the Ks line. They are designed to capture Wichita traffic and the major interstate down that way.

Years before the poker boom the buses use to carry the Wichita folks down there for the Bingo games.

It appears the Sheriff has been busy anyway.


From the reaches,

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.
