Backing into parking stalls will cost Wichita drivers $18 ticket

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) — Many of us back into parking spots, especially this time of year when we’re out holiday shopping. But did you know it’s illegal in the city of Wichita?

I didn’t know that. Of course, just thinking over the head lines, I’m of a mind that the only vehicle license plates needed (outside the vanity plates, of which are two required) are the rear plates.

But given my wicked mind, I questioned, silently, is it fair to parallel park. I mean, to do it right one must back into the slot, right?

Never mind. I know, I know.

But speaking of knowing; the Navy is favored by three touchdowns over Army. This is a vengeance game and the last college regular season game of the season. Who you for?

Rain is moving in. Right now, nothing but mist. Clouds are thickening. The furniture store owner is correct to hurry. I’m of half a mind to call him and tell him I’m on the way to town.

No. I won’t.

I’ll wait until Tuesday or Wednesday. I’ll need to stop by the Dollar Store and pick up some furniture polish for the dining room table anyway. I’m still slobbering on it.

During the flap with the near neighbors trailer and the cops looking at pictures, I mentioned to the brother that I found it amusing that the electronic bird calls they (the dopers) were using them. I explained how I would go out and wait for the calls to go off in the various parts of town, then go back inside, wait a while. Then go out to set them off again. Rinse and repeat for my amusement until I grew tired of it. I added that it was fun to watch to see which child of the doper was sent to see what I was doing, and which means of vehicle was given them to zip down the road.

Said vehicles were illegal to be on the roads, with driver as young as seven. I also asked the brother if he was aware of how many deputies were talking about which and whose children they had stopped and ticketed – the teens being the receivers of the tickets.

The brother looked thoughtful and the trigger they had in the tree near my back door disappeared and the bird calls have stopped.

Pity.

I was enjoying myself and the deputies were definitely getting pissed with all the young people not paying attention.

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.
