The following comes in three parts.

The headlines.

The story.

The laughter.

Wait until you start chuckling,

$50k in meth seized in Barton County bust

Three people are arrested and more are expected soon after a drug bust in Barton County. Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir says those drug deals were orchestrated behind bars through the inmate pay phone system.

Alright. Enough of the news.

Housekeeper was by this morning. She pointed out that another tractor/trailer rolled over yesterday on a highway notorious for such things. She said it forced her to deviate from her job route to the south of her home.

She took the dirt roads; which doesn’t sound like much until you realize they had seven inches of rain in that area and dirty becomes mud rather easily. She had four wheel drive and made the ten mile trip. She was grumpy that the normal trip of twenty minutes took just over an hour.

Housekeeper also reported that lightning struck a working oil well and blew parts and pieces every where. Shredded the pump into fragments. She says that during thunderstorms and lightning storms her hubby will not attend his pumps. Too much chance she says, that one may be caught in the blast of one being struck.

This blast took out the well pump, all the piping and the two five thousand gallon storage tanks. Hell of a mess.

Her 4th of July celebration, camping on the lake with her new trailer was okay, she said; except for a drunken lady’s obnoxious detailed comparison of black men and white women and white men being rapists.

It got so bad, Housekeeper said, that she stood up and began singing the National Anthem. She caught, she reported, hell from the crowd around over her ability to sing.

I asked her if her singing stopped the women from further potty mouth remarks and she said it hadn’t; that it appeared the crowd wanted to hear what the lady had to say.

And Housekeeper says she is a Liberal Democrat.

I refrained from suggesting she shouldn’t dis her party line.

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.
