Blonde on the Prairie: A Night in the Life of a Redneck Diabetic

January 18, 2013

I’m not a Catholic nor am I a criminal. Yet here I stand in an invisible confessional bearing my soul. In this life I wish to teach as much as I learn.

If you look closely at the shelves in porta-potties they have a single hole in them. I learned it is not a shelf but rather a urinal. The hole has a purpose. The keys have since been washed. Trust me. I confessed that to you because I appreciate humor.

The Valley City City Commission decided in September to sell the Audi to an interested buyer who met the criteria. City commissioners approved one of two plans presented to them in November. Berkel Properties had presented the city with a plan to repurpose the Audi and make it apartment buildings.
