Thank Dog it's FRYday! The other day was checking out something one of my Nephews wrote on Facebook it went something like this: "Bicyclists get out of my effing way if you can't do 35 mph get off the road." I don't know if Bicyclists have the same rights to ride their bikes on the street there as we do here, but I did not ask but made a comment about Right of way and how the laws are here. One of his Gal Pals wrote in caps," I JUS WANT TO RUN THEM ALL OVER JERKS." Or something like that. It's not just us; there's Zombies behind the wheel everywhere. A woman totally ignored my right of way at the Milpas roundabout on Wednesday almost took out a couple little kids too but she wasn't concerned driving her 50,000 plus thousand dollar SUV. I did get in my 2 Cents though by calling her an IDIOT, I know she heard it. Later on she just happened to be in front of me in Rite Aid. She was wearing a dress I don't know what the material was but with the flower pattern the dress reminded me of curtains you'd see at an old fashion funeral home and she was staring straight ahead looking like a Stepford Wife. No emotion; staring straight ahead she kind of scared me a little looking like that as if she was going to just chomp into my shoulder right there. She probably prefers Road Kill.
Tuesday Evening I heard on my Scanner that a concert at the bowl was over so I went out to get some air; it seems that many of the drivers seemed to be on something as they made their way to Southbound 101. I haven't driven in some time but I can tell that many of these drivers were borderline out of control and didn't seem to care one way or the otter. One of the calls I heard was 23152 so the police were cruising around anyway looking for the DUI Zombies. If I ever drive again I might get an old Caddie like the one I had back in the mid 80's a 1977 Coupe De Ville. It was a great car and those that made the mistake of crashing into it only destroyed their own vehicles, I did not get hurt. There were a couple drawbacks. It had an 8-Track in it with a Liberace tape jammed in it and when the vehicle was turned over if you listened to anyone it was Liberace or nothing at all. The other problem was it had been registered to a guy who was in prison so I'd get pulled over now and again but besides that it was a great car and I miss it very much. I'm sure I wasn't the greatest driver in the world myself but I never got pulled over for driving violations in a car in California and I always stopped for everyone even if a pedestrian was illegally crossing in the middle of the street I stopped. This is a topic I feel will never go out of style or be resolved it hasn't yet in fact it seems to be getting more out of control. Many say that they drive better drunk or under the influence. Maybe they do, but sooner or later someone who doesn't crosses their path or they make a mistake and someone loses their life or ends up crippled. Thank Dog it's FRYday, Drive Safely.

I'm glad they watch out for kids now because they didn't in my day back then you tell a cop your Daddy beat you up they said "It's none of our business, it's family business." "Maybe you deserved it, you're lucky he didn't give it to you real good." I guess breaking my arm wasn't good enough for the police. Or the burst appendix a lot of kids died when I was a kid by their parents' hand.
Will I hope you all have a great weekend and Doggie Willing we will see you on Monday. Later, Roger
