Scanner Reports 12-24-12
updated: Dec 24, 2012, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

The Eve of Christmas 2012, Hopefully everyone will get what they want for Christmas whether it be Sunshine, Snow, Money, A Job, Food, Winning the Lottery, A Microwave (I got one of those from IMABOO) Thank You, IMABOO...Clothing, World Peace, Peas, Drunk...I got a mousey if anyone wants him the otter night he jumped from one table to anutter looked like Flipper jumping out of the water doing a little dance. Freaked me Out!

No wonder the little booger was dancing the ZAPPER was off I'll make the booger really dance later! I kinda wonder if I had the little snots all along and Pooh Bear retired without telling me poor feller just got old and rather have em as friends. Kinda weird it's kinda that way with people too. Mad at each other for 40 or 50 years get old and don't care anymore ending up friends where they once left off ever know anyone like that? Life is too damn short for all the anger and resentments clogging up our hearts and brains making us sick, and pissed off all the time. Do as I say SNOT as I poo. It takes me a little longer than most.

Walked down the drive way to get a little air on Saturday night ran into this guy giving a houseless friend of mine money for Christmas. Said he only had a few bucks and has to put a grand together for rent in a few days but he's grateful for everything he does have and like me he likes to give directly to those who need it. I guess I'm not quite as grateful as him I'd only give a buck if I had it. What I'd rather give is a cup-a-soup or coffee since I have more of both and they are cheaper than the store. People don't ask me for money much because I always say back "Sure I'll give you a buck, just as soon as you give me a little spare change so I can afford to." Anyway it is refreshing to run into otter giving people once in a while that work, pay their own rent, and still believe in helping others even if it means they go without. Kinda restores one's faith in all people when you run into someone like this.

    Merry Christmas..I tangled up with a wood pole once and shreaded it with a 73 Ford LTD Wagon I ripped off while drunk once. The pole did not win that time.

    Merry Christmas, Roger and Pooh.

    And mice.

    Roger, maybe just get the mice a big cage, put them into it as they show up until they are all present and accounted for. Then you'll know where they are.

    We discouraged our mice by enclosing anything they might eat - - bread in the fridge, etc. - - and stuffing cracks with steel wool.

    I know you don't want to kill the mice roger but you can get rodent bait that is grain spiked with vitamin D that makes them sluggish and either die or get caught by a predator more easily but the larger animal isn't affected at those concentrations do it's safe for Pooh and the neighborhood kitties and birds or dogs or skunks or whatever that may eat the slow mice. Otherwise I recommend the zappers with a bit of peanut butter bait. In any event, thank you for doing a great and entertaining job Roger. Happy crimble, and joyful new year!
