There is a blog that I follow (listed in the right hand column) for Retired One. She occasionally shares local news reports with us and offers comments. Not much happens in OUR area (is that good or bad??) but I DO follow some of the weird stories online.
Before I get to that, I will share one ad with you that did appear in the Newberry News a couple of weeks ago.
WANTED; SOMEONE TO CARE FOR MY FATHER WHO SUFFERS FROM DEMENTIA PART TIME.
MY question is does the father suffer from dementia part time or did they want someone to care for him part time??
Gas + Flame = ?: Yeah, some people still can't quite figure that one out. Police say a 27-year-old woman in Joliet, Illinois, was filling a gas can on the passenger seat of her car when she wanted to see how much gas was inside. So she got out her lighter and... you can guess the rest, right? The whole story is online at the Daily Herald. (Dumb Moves)(Ouch! That Must Hurt!)
Granny's Got a Gun: A Missouri woman angry that a plane flew too close to her house went to the airport with a gun and said she was going to shoot it down. Then, police say 69-year-old Judy Davis walked out onto the runway and opened fire -- forcing a plane to abort its landing, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune.
Just to Make Sure He's Dead: Angela Simpson was indicted for murder... but this wasn't your usual stabbing, strangling or beating death. Police say she chose "all of the above," pulling out the handicapped victim's teeth, driving a nail through his skull and setting the body on fire... after stabbing him 50 times and strangling him with a coaxial cable, according to abc15.com. See her photo in the Weird Crime Mug Shot Hall of Shame.
