Putting The "Bang" Back In Sex...!

I'm sure that there is a moral in this story somewhere, but I'm just not sure what it is!

There are so many things that one could say about this plan, I'm not sure just where to start! One saying that comes to mind is "beware of Greeks bearing gifts". Seems like the smartest thing would be, first, not to use these things anyway...and secondly, always know who any unexpected gifts are from!

Man charged with two felonies for making homemade explosive device

Terry Allen Lester

WASECA — A Waseca man has been charged with felony creation and possession of an explosive or incendiary device and felony terroristic threats after authorities discovered a homemade explosive device hidden in a sex toy.

Terry Allen Lester, 37, faces a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment and a $20,000 fine if convicted.

On January 1, Officer Kari Kalow responded to a home in Waseca about a civil matter.

According to the woman, Lester had been staying with her and another woman at her apartment, but he was forced to leave when the manager learned about this.

He left the apartment on Dec. 31, but left behind some bags. The contents of the bags made the women uncomfortable so they contacted authorities.

The women brought Kalow the container of items, which included a container with the words “Christmas Gifts” written in black marker.

One of the women told Kalow that Lester had spoken to them about one of the items.

According to the criminal complaint, Lester had made some modifications to a sex toy. He put gun powder, BB shot and buck shot from shotgun shells into one with black and red wires that connected to a trigger with a battery port.

There was no battery inside the device.

The complaint went on to say that Lester planned on giving it to one of three women. In each of those cases, the relationship had ended badly.

Also left at the apartment were tools used in the construction of the explosive device, including cords, cables, a small tool kit and two other sex toys.

The Bloomington Bomb Squad was contacted by Waseca Police Sergeant Scott Girtler. The squad arrived two hours later and x-rayed the devices after first inspecting them.

The first device, the one shown to Kalow earlier, had two wires coming out of it that were connected to what appeared to be a trigger from a cordless drill.

The other two devices appeared to be unaltered and checked out.

The bomb squad cut into the first device and removed the projectiles and gunpowder, rendering it inert.

Lester remains in police custody.

This seems to me to be a pretty brutal way to get back at anyone. I'm guessing that this guy has some very serious anger issues that need to be addressed! I mean, it's one thing to plan to injure someone, but to do so in such a barbaric manner is completely inexcusable in my opinion!

Now, after all that's been going on during the last couple of days I need some fresh coffee...a LOT of coffee. One thing about the hospital that Mom is in...close by her room in the hallway, they have a "serve yourself" coffee cart, where they furnish free coffee for the visitors. Pretty fresh, too! Nice to see things like that once in a while, ya know?

Come on in, grab a cup, and we'll sit in the kitchen for a bit!

What was that about "greeks bearing gifts"?

There are all kinds out there and some people are just sadistic and should be put away or done away with.

Good Morning My Special One,
Glad to see you this morning. I hope your mom is doing better.
Yes there are way to many crazy people in this world today. After the horrible tragedy we had here on Sat. it makes me think I would rather brave the cold in the mountains than to stay in this town of druggies who have totaly burned out their brains.
Some fresh coffee with some realativly sane people sounds wonderful.

Hey Catman...
Just another way of saying that, like the Trojan Horse, not all gifts are what they may seem!

At least the guy was original! No need to be dull just because you're a little insane, I guess!

Thanks, buddy, for coming by today!

Hey Dizzy...
I'm sure hoping that with such a twisted mind, he is put away somewhere safe!

I know I don't want him as a room mate!

Thanks for coming by today, my friend!

Hey JoJo...
I don't blame you for thinking about heading back to the mountains. These crazies are everywhere you turn around, it seems!

The world is getting to be a scary place anymore!

Thanks, sweetie, for the phone number and for coming by today!

Gives a whole new meaning to "unprotected sex"

Marjie said...

A consequence of the new attitudes toward commitment. I'm just sayin'.

How's Mom? WHen does she come home?

HermitJim said...

Hey Bob...
That it does, my friend! That it does!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Marjie...
Sure makes you long for the more simple times, when breaking up usually did not mean getting blown up or attacked by the ex.

Mom seems to be getting better, but as far as when she is coming home...that still seems to be up in the air! I'm just hoping she gets to feeling well soon and that the pneumonia goes away!

Thanks for your concern and for dropping by today!

Hey Hermit. Haven't been by in awhile. So sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she has fully recovered by now. Yep, hospitals do suck or stink or... Sometimes a total waste of $,$$$,$$. Thus, I stayed home to suffer but still at it.
How about giving me a ring via email. Lost/can't find your address. Gotta discuss an issue with you.

HEY!! We need "MOM" updates and we need them on a regular basis.
