Scanner Reports 2-4-13
updated: Feb 04, 2013, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Well hair we are, another Monday, the first day of the week for many people. When I was younger Monday always felt great to me heading back to work. I always felt young and fresh and happy riding the bus in the morning. I couldn't understand why older people looked like someone took their favorite toy, and gave ‘em a good smack upside their heads. Now that I'm older it usually takes a couple hours for me to wake up and that is how I feel. Wondering about that stabbing the other day in Granny Field, I read somewhere that kids use Granny Field as a short cut to get to school and I'm wondering does anyone escort the kids thru the field or do they just go thru on their own? It concerns me that there are many homeless sex offenders here because not many people will rent to them. There might be a couple sleeping in that field anyway if I had kids they would not be taking short cuts through any field without DAD. I hear some scanner calls from that neck of the woods and I wouldn't want my kids experiencing what goes on there. Of course if I had kids they would be serial killers and there would be nothing going on in that field. Seriously though does someone escort children thru the field?

Now on to Illegal Campers, Crappers, and RVers.

A lot of people are calling in RV's parked in their HOOD's lately I guess they are tired of the Buzz that comes with the RV's which can include Traffic, Noise, Illegal Dumping, there are other problems associated with having people camp in the Hoods Warming Fires, Parties. Anyway since the illegal dumping on Olive the otter night I've heard several calls going out reporting RVers in other neighborHOODS Around town. Sounds like residents are getting tired of the RV's, Warming Fires, HELLraising, among other things. It's been Downtown for a while now, but they don't want it in their back yard.

Well on Sunday morning I almost bit the Dust the traffic light at Cacique and Milpas has this little deal. When there is not a lot of traffic on Milpas the traffic light on Cacique goes green twice in a row. I pushed the button waited, waited, watched the vehicles turn left on Cacique from Milpas, the yellow light came on the vehicles stopped I stepped off the curb Assuming I had the right of way, I didn't. I don't love the sound of SUVs slamming on the brakes first thing in the morning. The drivers gave me dirty looks, I gave them dirty looks and then I looked at the light. There I was jaywalking right in the middle of SUNday morning traffic. After all my SMACK Talkin about motorists that break traffic laws Thank Dog I wasn't wearing an Edhat Shirt like I usually do of course there was my scanner hanging outta my back pocket. I know it doesn't happen much but sometimes the King Screws Up! I've had something going on the past couple days; extreme migraines, and some sinus, the otter night I fell asleep in my chair and woke up with my hair soaking wet with sweat. I don't know if it's the bug or...? Today I noticed what looks like a fanged spider bite just below my eye will see I guess or maybe not.

    Will that is it outta me for now too many things going on I want to hide. I noticed the U.H. put a disclaimer in one of their articles and I kinda feel a movement to do the same. I understand there are a lot of people out there that might be sensitive to these Scanner Reports and the way the King writes the only thing I have to say besides enjoy the therapy is Em Tae. I have been in Therapy before I know it's hard to tell but it works, sometimes. Well, have a wonderful Monday, and Dog Willing, we will see you on Hump Day. Love and Kisses, Roger

    Roger, the children have been walking through the field to El Camino School for years. They are not escorted. They live in the apartments off Turnpike and it's a much shorter route than they otherwise would have.

    Second what LIZTISH340 said, kids have always walked through there and I explored there many times in high school and beyond! Never felt unsafe there, even recently, there are always homeless people and some whole camps set up, but they really keep to themselves and I've never felt bothered by anyone livnig there. Kind of like how the homeless of State St. used to be, peaceful live-and-let-live mentality!

    Roger, sounds like u got what's going around like wild fire. Mucus, coughing, and the sweats. I've been waking up drenched at night for the past three days. I'm going on a week now with this crap so it's hanging around longer than usual.

    Lots of rest and fluid Roger and stock up the ipubrofen! The flu is going around, just getting over being sick for over a week myself and know lots of others with those same symptoms. Not fun but it will go away, eventually!

    For a while we had an obnoxious RV person, that would pull the RV up onto the curb and sometimes run right over our water meters. By him doing this, my tap water would be brown with silt for a couple days. I asked him nicely to NOT do that and he started arguing with me, so I called the cops and they gave him a nice ticket for parking on the curb. They wanted to give him other tickets but I talked them outta that. Needless to say, that RV found another place to park.

    Plus, that obnoxious RV guy, would park too close to our driveway, making it totally impossible to see oncoming traffic when pulling out. On San Andres between Victoria & Micheltorena. I found out from the City that it's very easy to get signs posted "No RV Parking", which would have been my next step, if he hadn't left the area.

    Hay Roger, be careful with that bug going around, my son got it a week ago and we gave him aspirin and alot of gatorade and his temp. still went up to 105. His wife got him to the hospital and they gave him something that brought it down quick to 100 . Yeah Roger I said his wife, he got married this weekend , cool huh...

    And here I was thankin about getting an RV...Damn! I'm fightin that cold but I woke up at 3am and Pooh Bear was wiping his SNOT all over my arm.. I stepped on one of his tootsie rolls on the way to the can..The little booger. I've been hearing alot of diffculty breathing calls heard one this morning right next store one of my favorite neighbors but they think he might have had a mild heart attack. The firemen had him walk out to the ambulance, not cool....Sounds like people are really fed up with the RV's they got one in a motel parking lot on upper State street this morning.. As far as kids walking through granny field all it takes is one wacko to change everything with those kids..I'd rather be safe than sorry..Thats why I'm asking about escorts..I think the last time there was a child homicide here was 1981, alls it takes is one wacko and there are a few sleeping out there feel free to check out meganslawca.gov and see if you reconize anyone residents included..Safe than sorry.

    Jelly bean up nose. Ahhh.... sweet memories of youth.

    Antidote = give victim glass of milk, then tell funny "knock-knock" joke. Laughter forces milk out nose, flushing out jelly bean. Problem solved.

    That is Roger's brand. He has a following. That following is a benefit for the site. To eliminate that following would be a step backwards.

    Now, as far as appealing to those that don't like his posts, why not write the site operators and ask to become a daily blogger.You could get your name on the navigation bar to the left. If you posted your pic along with your posts, we'd either honk and wave when we see you on the streets or honk and give you the finger.

    Roger provides a wonderful service and he does it with humor. I appreciate that.

    Toilet humor. And his picture is where????
    I want to acknowledge him when I see him.
