    Hard to believe.

    She's 68, and she killed him.

    I thought people usually mellow out as they get older.

    Crazy stuff.

    A local restaurant owner shot her husband in the bathtub six times, dumped the shells, reloaded the revolver, and shot him six more times.
    Many folks round here thought he deserved it, and she got off with no time.
    Years of abuse I guess.

    In this case it seems sketchy though?
    Took months of investigation before she was charged, so the evidence must be shaky.

    I'd've thought she'd put some poison mushrooms in his omelet, since he eats lots of wild mushrooms.

    This is a great old story posted on the Traces of Texas FB page recently.

    The Texas Quote of the Day:

    In the early days, a YO ranch hand couldn't get into town as often as he does now. When he did, the sudden release from isolation sometimes proved more a curse than a blessing.

    That's the way it was with Hen Baker, a cowboy who'd been up the trail with YO rancher Gus Schreiner. On one of Hen's infrequent forays into Kerrville, he wound up getting indicted by the grand jury for killing a man with his pocketknife. At his trial, Baker took the stand in his own defense.

    While attending a picnic and barbecue along the Guadalupe River, he explained, he decided to appoint himself parking lot attendant. In the course of carrying out those duties, a stranger from Bandera rode up, got off his horse, and challenged Baker:

    "I'm the Bull of the Bandera Woods and I hear you're King of the Kerrville Cedarbreaks. Let's see who's the best man."

    Baker noticed the man seemed drunk. He also noticed there was a gun on his hip. Baker shooed him away and went back about his business.

    After the picnic, Hen strolled into the Mint Julep saloon for a drink. Sure enough, here came the Bandera Bull, still drunk and still looking for trouble. Baker bought him a drink. The Bull swallowed it in one gulp, folded his arms, and according to Hen's testimony, "roosters me in the ribs just like that."

    Hen then told the jury, "I didn't have my six-shooter, so I had to cut his throat."

    In effect, what Hen was doing was apologizing for bad manners. A frontiersman didn't use his fists or his knife --- but, as Baker explained, he didn't have his pistol. What was he to do, under the circumstances, knowing the Bandera Bull had a gun?

    The case was clear enough to the jury, and they found Hen Baker 'not guilty.'

    I'll convey the whole scenario to my wife. Her thesis was about Joyce Carol Oates.

    I'm lucky...I guess. My ex wife merely crushed my soul and left me an empty husk - but left me alive to think about what an idiot I was.
    You know, the usual divorce story...;):eek:
