For one brief, exhilarating moment, former Google employee Sanmay Ved owned the domain google.com. He was able to buy it for $12. The transfer was quickly canceled.

Sammay, Sammay, don’t you know that Google owns the Alphabet and would have gotten it back letter by letter if nothing else?

By the way, the quote is from Rankin’s Weekly Geekly news letter.

Housekeeper was in today. She’s still full of her hubby getting a day job. I’m eternally surprised at my preconceptions being shattered.

I’d thought that Housekeeper would act somewhat differently. She actually is taking pride in the fact her husband is a city employee.

She did mention that she was happy he had gotten it as it was getting hard on her being the bread winner. I can feel that one.

Years back I had a friend down Housekeepers way that I wrote about as Buddy Down South. The Buddy had a number of family down there, and a couple scattered across Central Kansas.

One of Buddy’s sister, married, victim of Alzheimer’s, lives near Housekeeper. The sister wandered away from the house yesterday, down toward the mailbox. She slipped on the gravel road and broke her shoulder. Shoulder, not her clavicle.

Housekeeper said the lady’s husband and she had the devils time of it getting the woman on her feet long  enough to get her into a car and transported to the hospital (twenty-eight miles, no matter which direction they took her).

I asked why, what with an EMS being based about a hundred yards from Housekeepers house, they hadn’t called and gotten the arm immobilized before transporting.

I received a blank look like, “Oh. We could have, we just didn’t think of it.”. And she’s a Democrat. One would think that support would be the first thing she looked for.

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.
