Scanner Reports 8-6-14
updated: Aug 06, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Wednesday Hump Day. So the other day I was leaving Rite Aid on Milpas, there was like 20 people in line. This guy who looked Military without the uniform; about 25 was walking toward me he say to me "Thank You Sir for your service." I was like, huh? Again he says "Thank You for your service in the field of entertainment." Entertainment? I thought, who the HELL is this guy? And how does he know I'm Roger Dodger? I'm thinking' I should have never told anyone. The guy adds "You have entertained thousands of people thru the years and I just want to thank you for that." I turned looked at one of the cashiers who looked as if she was about to bust up, smiled said "Why thank you", and got the HELL outta there. I wonder who in the HELL did this guy think I was? It was either the colorful Jimi Hendrix shirt, or my long white hair that did it.

I like reading Web MD. Doctor's not always right ya know, and for those times there is ALWAYS Web MD always there 24/7 not like those doctors who think they are always RIGHT. So I was doing a bit of reading and ended up reading about something I had once. Horrible stuff I mean since I got bug bites and shingles and all that other stuff it said if I had that stuff I'd have severe headaches, stiff neck I'd have hallucinations, etc. I had a doctor's appointment up the street so I split I was walking up Milpas when I saw a guy drive by in his work Truck someone I hadn't seen in many years and wasn't sure even existed anymore. Then I saw this woman walking toward me. Spitting image of my crazy sister. I was really hoping she was a hallucination. I got to the doctor's office they said the appointment wasn't till tomorrow. I cancelled it flat out. I'll go when I feel better. I think they screwed me on that one anyway. I remember the girl saying Tuesday, plus they did not give me a card. Too bad I paid for the appointment already. But Hey maybe I'm hallucinating, or just plain crazy. Then I went to the Smoke store and one of my Ex's was in there, someone I haven't seen in many years who lives on the West Side. I came home and ate some mushrooms and everything is normal now.
