By Roger the Scanner Guy

Will we made to to FRYday the week went pretty quick I think. I'm still pretty devastated over the accident on the highway Saturday night, and then I was walking past Crown Liquor on Thursday and saw all the flowers and memorial for Colleen. I wasn't sure I knew her but she was whom I thought she was. The last time I spoke to her she told me she wanted my bicycle. If she was here I'd give it to her. I'll miss her yelling up and down the street she was always trying to make other people feel good. That is what I will remember about her not that she was a transient. That word haunts me now transient, transient, transient! Ever since someone was screeching about it on Facebook the other day. It wasn't bothering me the other day but since then it started getting to me. On Saturday Evening when the other woman was killed on highway 101 with her dog and the report came out a female transient was killed crossing highway 101 with her dog, a couple people condemned her that really pissed me off. No one knows what the HELL really happened I wrote what I thought happened because I have seen it many times but I really don't know either. Still I don't think someone should be blamed when no one knows the story. A friend of mine suggested she could have been running from someone there have been rapes in this area not all are reported, or taken seriously.

There are others out there that cause problems, and terrorize residents and others; I could call worse names than transient. I think I'm going to quit using the word. Homeless Types like Gang Types sounds good to me. I saw Cal Trans out there on Monday morning cleaning up that area of 101 where the woman was killed and I guess if there were any personal items left behind to tell some of us who Hannah Stromberg was they're in the dump by now. Whenever a homeless person dies in Santa Barbara their things get picked up and thrown away as if they never existed. Maybe not all of them but it's happened to a few homeless types I have known. Back in 2002 my cousin went to Hawaii for the weekend with his wife and brother in law. My cousin was one of many editors who worked on the Budweiser commercials for an agency out of Chicago. He and his brother in law were killed, actually drowned while swimming, taken away by an under tow not too far off the coast. Both were experienced swimmers having grown up swimming in the great lakes. There were many unanswered questions from the Powers that were in charge at the time over there. My family just wanted to be comforted my Aunt and Uncle just lost their Son and their Son in law also. A Wife had just lost her Husband and Brother well they were basically treated like crap. I swore I'd never go to Hawaii because of that and I never will. But you're stuck with me here.

I wonder if it's like that everywhere when Homeless, and Tourist Types die in another town not their own? I remember most of what I said about the word transient. But sometimes when a suggestion is put in my face it takes me awhile of looking at it to change. I'm a man that doesn't read no stinking directions and a hypocrite at times to boot! I almost lost my Edhat finger today working on the washing machine from HELL. I was wearing leather gloves and ran my hand around the bucket of the washer in the mechanisms my hand got stuck I ripped my hand out of the glove as this part slammed down right where my Edhat finger was. It tore the glove in half. That was close. My Edhat finger is the only finger I type with, and of course it's my middle finger, can't lose that!
