A drunk phoned police to report that thieves had been in his car.
"They've stolen the dashboard, the steering wheel, the brake pedal, even the accelerator!" he cried out.
However, before the police investigation could start, the phone rang a second time with the same voice came over the line.
"Never mind," he said with a hiccup, "I got in the back seat by mistake."

Deputy Hidrent recently worked the scene of a terrible accident - body parts were everywhere. He was making his notes of where the different body pieces were and comes across a head.
He writes in his notebook: "Head on bullevard" and scratchs out his spelling error.
"Head on bouelevard" Nope, doesn't look right - scratch scratch.
"Head on boolevard..." dang it! Scratch scratch.
He looks around and sees that no one is looking at him as he kicks the head and finally wtrites "Head on curb."

Early this morning a man was speeding through Sandstone County. He crossed the bridge at the west side of Pine when Officer Hidrent, parked at the far end, noticed him. Deputy Hidrent promptly pulls him over and walks up to the vehicle. As he approaches the man rolls down his window. "Do you know why I pulled you over," asks Deputy Hidrent?
"Yes sir," replied the driver, "I was speeding, but I'm a doctor and have to get to the hospital."
Hidrent had heard this a hundred times, and asked, "What exactly do you do, Doctor?"
The man replies, "Why, I'm a rectum stretcher, sir."
The deputy hadn't heard of this before and replies "What is that, exactly?"
The man explains, "What I do is work the fingers of one hand into the rectum one by one - then the next hand until I have stretched the rectum to about four and a half feet."
Hidrent then asks, "What the hell do you do with a four and a half-foot asshole?"
The man replies, "Stick him at the end of a bridge with a radar gun, of course."

Yesterday, while on routine patrol, Officer Hidrent pulled over a man for running a stop sign and the subject gave him a lot of grief and insisted that he did stop.
After several minutes, Officer Hidrent explained to the gentleman that he didn't stop, he just slowed down a little.
The gentleman said "Stop or slow down, what's the hell's difference?"
Officer Hidrent immediately pulled the guy out of his car and worked him over for a couple of minutes and then asked, "Would you like for me to stop or just slow down?"
Following is a letter written by a Marine in response to senator Kerry's latest 'foot-n-mouth'. It was sent to me by someone with whom I share a special bond - we both have relatives who were injured by the same IED in Iraq.
This was written by my husband, Sgt. Aaron —-, who is currently deployed to Iraq, in response to a recent comment made by Senator John Kerry. ~ Michelle
Yesterday John Kerry said, “You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well, and if you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq”
So I wrote him a letter:
I am a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I am currently on my second tour in Iraq, a tour which I volunteered for. I speak Arabic and Spanish and I plan to tackle Persian Farsi soon. I have a Bachelors and an Associates Degree and between deployments I am pursuing an M.B.A. In college I was a member of several academic honor societies, including the Golden Key Honor Society. I am not unique among the enlisted troops. Many of my enlisted colleagues include lawyers, teachers, mechanics, engineers, musicians and artists just to name a few. You say that your comments were directed towards the President and not us. If we were stupid, Senator Kerry, we might have believed you.
I am not a victim of President Bush. I proudly serve him because he is my Commander and Chief. If it was you who was President, I would serve you just as faithfully. I serve America, Senator Kerry, and I am also providing a service to the good people of Iraq. I have not terrorized them in the middle of the night, raped them or murdered them as you have accused me of before. I am doing my part to help them rebuild. My role is a simple one, but important. You see, Senator Kerry, like it or not, we came here and removed a tyrant (who terrorized Iraqis in the middle of the night, and raped them and murdered them). And we have a responsibility to see to it that another one doesn’t take his place. The people of Iraq are recovering from an abusive relationship with a terrible government and it’s going to take some time to help them recover from that. We can’t treat this conflict like a microwave dinner and throw a temper tantrum because we feel like it’s taking too long.
Senator Kerry, you don’t have to agree with this war. You don’t have to say nice things about those of us who choose to make sacrifices for the rights of every American rather than sit back and simply feel entitled to it. But please, Senator Kerry, if you’re going to call me a stupid murdering rapist, stick by what you say. Don’t tell me that I misunderstood or that you would never insult a veteran because you’re one too. Having been there and done that does not give you a free pass to insult me.
My suggestion for you, Senator Kerry, is to remember that your speeches are recorded, and broadcast to us simpletons over here. You may want to write down what you want to say before you say it, maybe have somebody look at it before you say it and tell you what others might hear. Remember that we can’t read your mind, if there are any misinterpretations in what you say, it’s because you didn’t communicate clearly.
Good luck to you Senator Kerry, if nothing else it’s always entertaining to watch you try and climb out of the holes that you constantly dig for yourself.
Somebody who is watching his daughter grow up in photographs so that you can have the right to say whatever you want about him.

I am back from the deer shack and ready to start blogging again.
My time at the shack has been wonderful, to say the least. Out of six hunters we got five deer, so far. We still have until sundown Sunday to continue hunting. I will be working until Saturday afternoon but, will then be back out there, for a final hunt.
Enough of that. I don't want to bore everyone. Suffice it to say I'm back to blogging.
Tuesday, November 07, 2006
I will be at the hunting lodge until the middle of next week and you can expect no posts from me until my return. I am sorry I didn't make this announcement sooner and apologize profusely. I hope everyone returns later when the blog is back in full swing.
Wish me luck!

It appears Deputy Hidrent is in trouble again. He has been diligently working the shopping cart thefts since last weekend. Everything was going smoothly until he halled in the suspect shown here. Now the hard-working deputy is being accused of profiling!
Upon apprehension the suspect screamed, "What, you don't think the homeless deserve to roll in style, man? You just stopped me because I'm black!"
We'd opt for some 20-inch dubs ourselves, but this bad boy has GPS, a mini-fridge, AM/FM cassette stereo, LCD screen with TV tuner, can crusher, alarm with strobe lights, a tent, solar powered battery charger, and a slide out seat.
We have yet to see if this arrest will be upheld. The Sandstone County Sheriff would not give us access to Deputy Hidrent stating he did not want, " . . . the little pee-on saying something stupid and jeopardising the case."
