How about two chuckles or one chuckle and a head shake?

Lucas Hinch was very frustrated with his laptop. So he took it into an alley and shot it eight times with a handgun, “effectively disabling it,” according to police in Colorado Springs. Hopefully other laptops will take note of this story, and behave.

Wonder what caliber he was using.

“Oklahoma, OK!” Two Tulsa roommates stabbed each other with broken beer bottles over whether iOS or Android phones are better.

Umm, which had the better laceration.

Rained again last night. Reverend Dave called yesterday and wanted the church plot tilled. His wife changed her mind and wants the garden again this year. Told him I’d be over today, then the pesky rains came; called and reached agreement that I’d watch the plot and weather and till when it appeared it would be dry enough to be worth while.

The village grunts are out with the grader trying to take off the sod shoulders that are trapping water across the road. They are turning mud. Fortunately the grass had grown far enough across the road to hold most of the mess together. Will admit the work is having a good effect on drainage.

I haven’t received anything except bills and policy’s from my insurance companies, until recently. Four days ago I gave my agent my new address and she submitted it. I’m now receiving new rate schedules, acknowledgements I am insured and pure advertisements.

I was fine with before.

To the critter that eMailed me over Forrest Knox: I don’t 100% agree with the action of lawfully limiting the use of the cards. One: because you must enforce laws – which means enforcement agents, more costs to the program; and, Two: what the cards were being used for was what the folks wanted – which means they’ll find another way to pleasure themselves with tax payer money.

To my mind the legislature should have taken an in-depth look at the usage and then REDUCED the benefits given out by that abusive amount through each card.

Adding the restrictions is nonsense. People are going to abuse gratuitous money, period. Give them enough to survive and if they waste it, bury them.

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.
