I had an interesting time today. And it all started when I was simply trying to go to work, of all things. I mean, how irresponsible of me. I’m a terrible person.
So, I get to the turn off for the highway that the shop is on, and there is a police officer blocking the road. He tells me that the road is blocked all the way from the four lane to the county line. Well, the shop I work at is a good mile before the county line, so I ask, and he said to try the back way around.
I go around the back way, and another officer has the road blocked, but not all the way to the county line as I was previously told. However, he was past the shop by a good bit. I explained to him that I work right there (pointing at the building just within their little quarantine zone). He apologizes and explains that he cannot let me through. But this time he does explain why. And it directly pertains to this news story.
Some guy, who was not at all happy with his neighbor, had a gun and decided, as any reasonable person would, that the best way to solve all of his problems would be to shoot his troublesome neighbor. I’m sure we can all relate. I mean, who hasn’t wanted to at one point or another shoot your neighbor.
Since I could not go to work, I decided to spend the beautiful day riding the motorcycle that I purchased just a couple of weeks ago. I ended up riding around out by Center Hill Lake on the other side of Smithville. Here are the pictures I took while I was there.
