Show Notes for Thursday August 30, 2018


Dear John,
My husband and I have been having some tough times lately. We've been married for twelve years. Most of those have been happy years. We have two daughters and they are both involved in many activities. Sometimes we each take a girl and go our own way. It seems like we hardly ever see eachother any more, then when we do it's pretty easy to spend that time arguing about dumb things. One of those things is a dog. We talked about getting a dog, but we both agreed tht we were not home enough and it would be a bad idea. Last weekend while I was at a work event, he took the girls out an picked out a dog. I feel like he is purpousley trying to drive a wedge between us. What do you think? I know the girls love the dog, but I think it was a bad idea. My husband agreed, but then got them the dog anyway. What do I do? Should I get rid of the dog an be the “bad guy”? Should I get rid of the husband? (just kidding, sort of)

Any advice?

A Tennessee man decided he found better use for a biscuit when he chose to lunge it at his former girlfriend. 45-year-old Jeffrey Tomerlin was arrested Monday after he allegedly threw a biscuit “really hard” at his ex-girlfriend’s face. Tomerlin flew into a rage Sunday night when he spotted his former fling with her new boyfriend in a car in South Nashville. He reportedly charged at the vehicle and began punching the hood of the car and telling the couple he would kill them. He also yelled racial slurs. Police arrived at the scene where Tomerlin continued to bang his head while sitting inside the police cruiser. He was taken to the hospital before being booked into jail on charges including public intoxication, vandalism, and assault.

Forswunke   (for-SWUNK)
-Exhausted after physical exertion.

Middle English past participle of forswinke, “exhausted from physical exertion,” most commonly in the performance of household chores. Terms with similar meanings included dwang and snool, “to oppress or exhaust one’s vital energies by overwork,” while tireling denoted a person who was easily fatiqued by physical exertion. The sixteenth-century toilful was used of a hardworking individual or one who was characterized by toiling, and the related verb thripple meant “to toil ceaselessly.” Titteravating was an early dialectic variant in eastern England for “tiresome.

Used in a sentence:
"I'm positively forswunke after tea with the bridge club splatherdabs."

Madison police believe a Madison man is behind a college parking scam. Police said they were working to arrest 23-year-old Tony Fountain for scamming University of Wisconsin students. Officers said on Tuesday, a victim gave Fountain $400 in rent for a parking space he does not own. Fountain was arrested earlier this summer on suspicion of charging rent for a parking space on Hawthorne Court, also not under his control. Fountain, who uses the name “Bama Flow” online, has been contacting potential victims through a Facebook group where UW students find apartments and parking spots. Officers are trying to find probable cause to arrest Fountain.

Officials in Virginia are investigating a shooting that reportedly stemmed from an argument involving two men and whether Halle Berry played Aretha Franklin in a movie. Officers responded to the shooting around 10:45 a.m. Thursday. A witness told WTKR they overheard the two-people arguing about whether Halle Berry played Aretha Franklin in a movie. Police said one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other man “at least once.” The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital where he is listed in serious condition. Media reports from 2011 indicated Aretha Franklin said she wanted Halle Berry to play her in the yet-to-be-filmed biopic. However, earlier this year Franklin chose Jennifer Hudson for the role. (
