Wednesday, Happy Happity, Hump Hump Day! It's time for another episode of watch Roger Dodger have a Nervous Breakdown. So I bought a Scanner from Fingerhut. I know...I know.....But I'm Poor Trailer Trash without the Trailer. I put that on a Singles Ad and got an answer the first day. Some Gal actually wrote me and she wanted to get together right away. Scared the HELL outta me. Anyway the Scanner, Bearcat 100 Channel desktop with an AM-FM radio and a clock Nice and Cheap. I got another one that works great; bought it from Amazon. The Fingerhut one I just paid off. Anyway both scanners (Because they are the same model) take batteries in case there is a power outage. Well suddenly this Fingerhut Scanner is sucking up the battery power too fast, like in a day. I think that means my Fingerhut Scanner is going to the otter side. It's just another BILL! The singles ad has been up for 9 years. I don't really want anyone so I always put weird captions on the profile. Like "Jolly Gigolo". Other captions the Nanny would not like so I'm not repeating them here. Crime it's here and SNOT going away any time soon. A lot of Crimes of Opportunity as the Chief of Police says and of course the Holidays are coming up. A lot of thefts, a lot all over the place burglaries I mean Wow! Get Insurance lock up your place tight like Fort Knox anything you can do to prevent yourself from becoming a victim Do It. Be vigilant if you live in a neighborhood it might be good to get together with the neighbors and watch out for each other. Especially if you're going on vacation have someone watch your house, or apartment. I hear Squatter calls a lot too. Not just in the city, I have County too. I don't hear it all but I hear a lot. There's some Camper in Yard Calls too you gotta watch where ya step because you could step on someone it's dark out there. It happened to my sister once when she lived here. She rented a house with friends in the 700 Block of De La Vina it had this huge yard. At the time I was homeless and she caught me sleeping in the yard she told me that I couldn't sleep in her yard anymore. That wasn't very nice my own sister!
So I went out and got drunk which is what I used to do when I was Angry, or happy, sad, glad, it didn't matter I drank all the time one reason was just as good as another. But when I was angry and I got drunk I did things I would not normally do. Anyway I went over to the Rescue Mission, (which was at the corner of Mason and State Street back then.) I told all the Bums, Tramps, and fellow Hobos about my sister's Big Back Yard. I told them that they could drink there and no one would bother them all the neighbors would welcome them to the neighborHOOD. (That was in 1980.) My sister was delivering the LA Times back then she had to get up real early to pick up the papers and deliver them. She went to leave around 4am and I remember the story being she stepped on someone they grabbed her; she grabbed a broom and WHAM! BAM! BOOM! Anyway she was mighty mad at me when I got out of County Jail. She told me there were tramps sleeping in the compost pile! Her room mates were really angry too giving me dirty looks and such. That wasn't very nice so I went out and got drunk. I think the old Rescue Mission at Mason and State is a restaurant now. That place would make a good haunted house, I bet it's haunted I know of at least one person that died in there I wouldn't doubt it one bit if his ghost roams the halls looking for his money, Guy had no home but 5,000.00 in cash in his pocket.
