Scanner Reports 1-10-14

Thank Dog it's FRYday. I fell asleep the other night with the Scanner on while the guy on Bath Street was holed up inside his apartment playing the Waiting Game with the Police. Periodically I'd wake up hearing voices and Pooh Head meowing. I'd drift off again having weird dreams most of which came from the voices on the Scanner. When you have dreams of running from the Police and cats, you really get no rest at all. I don't think Pooh Head likes the scanner very much. Listening to it takes time away from his rubs. Between both I don't get a lot of shut eye. One of the times I woke up was after the Stand Off was over. I could not believe that the police still sounded Wide Awake.
What kind of coffee do they drink, I wonder. One officer I know to be well over 50 sounded totally awake, even after 3 in the morning he was volunteering to do more things that needed to be done before heading into the station. That Officer loves his job. Maybe it's not the coffee or the love of the job that drives them; maybe they are Zombies. No wonder why they smile when they arrest you. Maybe they're sizing you up with a side dish of Fava beans. Imagine getting arrested and going into the police station and seeing nothing but huge vats full of different sauces, and fryers, real homemade BBQ Ribs, a prep area where they give ya a little medical check up to see if you're healthy enough to eat. We would not have any crime in this town. The only need for jail would be to store the food; a few refrigerators. That sure would save a lot of money for the county. We probably would have no need for another jail. Who needs an injunction? We got Bacon, lots of Bacon and I'm NOT talking about the Police. Santa Barbara, the American Riviera, would be the BLT Capital of the World! Think of the tourists. We could all become Zombies and save all kinds of money on Food. We could be the first city in the World to successfully cure Homelessness. Man I'm getting hungry as HELL just thinking about it!
I don't know why, but when I listen to those Stand Offs I crave donuts and Little Cesar's Pizza smothered with chili sauce. Not too long ago I heard Pizza Hut was going to move in right next door to me. I guess the potential owner changed his mind. Probably because I live next door, I scared him away. I'd actually rather have Little Cesar's. I can't afford that gourmet stuff. It's good Little Cesar's is a few blocks away; make me work for it. Last time I went over there I got that Cheesy Bread stuff. Man that stuff was GOOD! But I ate it too fast and it expanded inside of me and I felt like I was going to float away full of gas. Like a huge Airship floating over the Santa Barbara Channel.
Speaking of Airships, the full moon is coming up in a few days. I finally found a calendar that lets you know when we are going to have a full moon; The USO Calendar. I get all kinds of Calendars; no full moons or even notifications of full moons till the USO sent me a calendar. I only sent them a few bucks last year - too nice of them. Now I know where to get my calendars.
