This 64-year-old bachelor is on the road with a chalkboard tailgate on his pick-up truck.
His goal is to find a wife. And he isn’t shy about what he wants in the bride-to-be.
“No drinker, no tobacco and under 40,” says Baughman.
The retired bus school driver has actually been posting marriage invites on his truck for close to three years. But he says lately they are becoming more creative – and he hopes they’re getting more attention.
“This might be my last decade,” he said. “This is my little place of Heaven. All I need is a woman to share it with.”
Baughman has been divorced twice. A background check shows nothing criminal. He says he spent a little time in jail for growing pot 35 years ago.
“Heck, it might be legal soon,” he says, laughing.
Asked how many serious inquires he has received over the years, he said ” about ten.”
“There has been a couple of them we had good conversations, but just didn’t pan out,” he says. “A lot of people that call are drunk, or doing a prank.”
He says none of that deters him. He found his second wife after placing a personal ad in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram years ago.
“I don’t care if you’re laughing at me, or with me, you are better off then you were before ya’ saw my tailgate,” said Baughman.
I noticed he didn’t specify that she was required to have teeth!!!
A Baltimore police officer who could be seen in a surveillance video beating an unarmed black suspect during an arrest last year pleaded guilty to assault on Friday and was sentenced to six months in jail, the Baltimore Sun newspaper reported.
The Sun reported that officer Vincent Cosom was suspended from the police force after the video, which shows him repeatedly punching Kollin Truss in the face last June, was made public.
Shaun Owens, Cosom’s attorney, could not be immediately reached, but he told the Sun that Cosom’s behavior was “quite simply a lapse in judgment.”
A lawsuit that Truss filed against Cosom is pending.
The sentence comes just weeks after protests in Baltimore over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray from spinal injuries suffered in police custody were punctuated by a day of looting and arson.
Sadly this is a message that must be sent to stop some of the things going on.
