Scanner Reports 2-24-14
updated: Feb 24, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Well it's Monday again here in Santa Barbara another Day, another beautiful Sunrise and sunset, as usual. Recently a new business moved into the HOOD; a bicycle shop serving cruiser customers. I was over there the other day with my friend Fred and saw something I would not mind having if I could still ride a bicycle. It was a two tone brown Huffy Panama Jack. It had a place for a cold drink and a root beer bottle opener on it. I like the name of the bicycle itself Panama Jack. Kinda has a ring to it wouldn't you say? Fellers got a real nice set up over there in the back of 217 South Milpas; lots of room to work and they seem like good fellers. If you're looking for a cruiser bike might be a good place to check out. I heard the Pizza Hut thing ain't working out. I guess maybe it's Dog's Will I have to work for my pizza a little to get it I like Little Cesar's. But a Pizza Hut would be nice next door too! When you live in a Hood that has residences as well as businesses in it there's going to be noise it's just natural during opening hours you're going to hear all kind of activities going on this is a pretty noisy HOOD. You got the RR Tracks, the highway, the Shelter, Fire Station 2, a car stereo shop, two gas stations, nail salon, bakery, gym, an animal hospital, and other businesses near Indio Muerto; Batty's, Norton's, the Bicycle shop, and the Habit. There are a few residents here also. Business takes noise. Business cannot be conducted without some type of noise, especially music.

Music is nice soothing, relaxing it sooths the savage beast. But sometimes a savage beast will get a hair up where the sun don't shine about music being a little too loud and instead of requesting nicely that someone turn down their music it comes out in a ROAR, and that only offends the other person so they turn the music up. Then the unglued savage beast calls 911 the police come and ask the offended one to turn it down nicely because there really isn't much one can do about Business hours. The police leave, the unglued savage beast leaves, the offended one invites all his friends over and they scream and yell all friggin day. I only have one question? WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET A BONG? The only noise that ever has bothered me in my HOOD is a certain business that has a Public Address radio at night after they close the employees get on that thing and try to sing and let me tell you they should stick to flipping burgers cause their voices SUCK!(But I'm not going to say who they are.) As far as real music goes none of it bothers me I even like rap. Just don't play any of that " Romantic I love you, you love me scrap" cause I'll jump off the pier. That stuff does kinda gets to me like Muskrat Love where the Muskrats are singing along with the song. It don't sound like Muskrats though it sounds like someone cutting the cheese I mean C'mon! No wonder Captain and Tennille broke up. Can you imagine sitting in a bar playing that song over and over again for 40 years?

I heard a 415 Loud Music call the other night it came from Swiney Road near Highway 246 and the music was coming from Down in the Riverbed so I guess maybe the campers were turning it up and doing a little partying down. "Down in the Riverbed." Which sounds like the name of a song in itself. This morning I heard a report of a Vegetation Fire in the same place as the loud music call, "Down in the Riverbed." But everyone went right back into service so if there was a fire there it sounds like it was small, like maybe they were cooking breakfast Down in the Riverbed doing the Breakfast Boogie. We all should be considerate of our neighbors no matter where we live or work. Do as I say SNOT as I do. I got Grand Funk Railroad Blasting a little DOG I JUST LOVE THIS OLD FOGEY MUSIC!

Remember the Rain we had a dozen years ago back in 1995? I was living in the 200 Block of West Haley my alarm clock went off in the morning to Order of Evacuation my HOOD was an Island. It scared the Holy Hell outta me to wake up that way. I jumped up grabbed my surf shoes put em on and ran out the door I did not know how slippery surf shoes were, I wasn't a surfer, my girlfriend bought me the shoes because my feet are sensitive to the rocks in the ocean. Anyway I hit the stairs and looked kinda like a dysfunctional Alpine Skier for a good 20 feet till I went down a 2nd set of stairs and landed on my ars. I got poison oak falling into the flood water. It was kinda fun swimming around in that flood water though. I remember this guy was on the State Street Bridge and he was going to dive in head first. Everyone was telling him to jump. He almost did it too. It was a good thing he didn't because there was a big old Cadillac under the water right where he woulda landed. Anyway I hope we have a good rain this week we really need it. So let's all do a little Rain Dancing this week even if you're like me. Shut the curtains, and the doors don't turn the music up to loud cause you don't want anyone to know you're dancing. DOG FORBID if someone should see me dancing even if it is for rain. I would die of embarrassment that is one of those things I don't do in public, and I used to work in a Disco. Don't tell anyone that, that's just between you and me.
