It has been an eventful week for this one. The blog has taken a back seat to more immediate needs. Sorry about that.

Friday Pastor and I spent a few hours in a neighboring town. They also had some tornado damage. We didn’t do a great deal of anything other than touch people verbally. Maybe it helped, maybe not.

While we were free of other people we caught up on events in our lives over the past few months.

Pastors newest kick is Rescue. When he introduced the subject I thought he was talking animals, but he was talking people. It appears that Wichita is the fifth highest in kidnappings nation wide. Getting those kids back is near to his heart.

He told me that twenty-five percent of the kids taken from Wichita are found in Western Kansas.

Which shocked me, I’m here to tell you. I lost track of the conversation or a time thinking over the things I knew of Western Kansas.

Some of my concerns were eliminated as Pastor continued the tale. It seems that as sthe police grip the drug nexus’ harder, the drug folks change from drug running to kidnapping. And slavery.

Other things the man is working on are visits to the local jails and bible studies cclasses. He is working on the state facilities in El Dorado.

That type of work is his calling, I  think. I’m not sure his type o doctoring to well people is really what he wants to do. It’s the sick he wants to deal with.

It’s the well church goers that support the Pastors do-gooder impulses.

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.
