We are reaping the rewards of dra-mama leadership from behind. Oh, goodie. Silly sod.

Lots of news from the local area, round about. I’ll introduce a follow-up article to the investigation into the town police force, first:

Harvey Co drug drop off ends after investigation of Halstead PD

– ‎15 hours ago‎

The Harvey County Sheriff says he’s ending a popular drug take back program because of an investigation into the police department in the city of Halstead.

Not a whole lot to say, is there? Opportunities abound if you think of it.

The second is both funny – if you’ve ever had a run-in with a snooty waiter or a person of worth more than yours – and sad if you’ve ever been a waiter or busboy and worked up a sweat when the bus came in:

Mulvane waiter upset by fake $20 tip

– ‎14 hours ago‎

MULVANE, Kan. (KAKE) — A Mulvane waiter is upset about a fake $20 dollar tip with a religious message. Seventeen-year-old Garret Wayman finished serving a table at Mulvane DK about a week ago and thought he saw a $20 bill.

That last is a cyclic type of thing. Many times those fake twenties show up as loose paper spread on city streets and on shop floors.

First the attraction of a loose twenty, then the realization. Horrible. But to stiff a waiter is irreligious, to say the least.

Rain today. It warmed up after the very light snows of two days ago. I don’t mind the rain and the snows are gone. Gone, I say. Melted away. The furnace will appreciate the reduced work load, I’m sure.

I got caught sneaking about trying to get all the Christmas presents delivered. I was told, by the person catching me, that I missed last year all together, and asked why?


Because I didn’t feel like giving last year? And might not next.


From the reaches,

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.
