Some days I’m more curious than others.

I am.

Today I was wondering about an article from Osage Co.. They had a meeting and discussed various things; to include the sale at auction of reclaimed properties. They figured that the county would be better off selling the properties at auction rather than like they had been doing of one at a time over time.

Considering, they estimated, that it was taking sixty grand a year to maintain the pieces.

That sent me to a near by county out of curiosity, you understand, wanting to know it there might be lots and such for sale in that area.

I got hung-up on the site map.

I did.

Banking-Loans-Professional (15)

Dining & Entertainment (21)

Gas & Groceries (9)

Health Care (10)

Lodging (6)

Outdoor Recreation (3)

Real Estate (6)

Retail (27)

Services (23)

Utilities (11)

 

I got to smiling over the fact there were more health care folks about than hotels or motels.  Twice as many real estate sellers as there are places to  enjoy one’s self,  and that there are so many banks and loan businesses, more even than there are gas stations.

Which tells one, I suppose, just what it is that a farm and ranch runs on.

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.
