Scanner Reports 10-9-17
Well I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was okay, the usual backache, bad gas, the never-ending chore of making my place look clean, ants, ants, ants.
Saw something on my TV the other night about being prepared in case you find yourself somewhere a gunman is. There was a time when I thought it would never happen here; that sort of thing don't happen here, only in other places. It happened in 2006, then again in 2014. Both times I heard it on the scanner, and both times I thought it was some kind of SWAT drill because I never thought it could happen here. I saw a question on Facebook "What would you do if you were in the situation of being in the presence of a mass shooter?" I don't think anyone knows what they would do. Try to survive, I guess. I read part of an article entitled How to Survive a mass shooting by Wes Siler on a website called Gizmodo's. He said wearing clothing and shoes you can run in for a start, just in case you can get away. Well, I cannot run anymore, so that leaves me out. But there are other things. I might just accept the fact I'm older with arthritis and this is it. There would be no running. I'd have to find another way, or hope it's fast. If I was to survive, I could help others. This part of a program was focusing on basic first aid; how to tie a tourniquet an inch or two above a bullet wound and very tight. I did not see much of the show after that but realized now that being prepared for a mass shooting is just as important as being prepared for an earthquake or a fire, or any other natural disaster, as this UNnatural disaster of facing a gunman is becoming a natural disaster more each day in America.

Will that is all outta me for now. I did have a question for folks after reading a comment on Edhat over the weekend. Do people really think that deceased folks wait in their graves for something to piss them off from their former life so they can "roll in their graves"? If that is all the afterlife has to offer, I'm staying alive longer, because I am in the business of making the living miserable. Have a lovely Monday. Belinda, Angel Baby, Pooh Bear, Fish Head One, Clancy, Poncho, Jerry, Walter, Fred, Brad, Billy, Jonathan, C.J., Carl, Stan, Kent, ELMO, Patrick, Christy, Rambo, Sherry, Magruder, Don, Edwin, Cory, Diana, Jim, Marty, Cop John, Isabelle, Jerry, John Hancock, Mickey Mantle, Ernie Banks, and Chris willing, we will see you on Wednesday. Later, Roger

Roger, you ask, "Do people really think that deceased folks wait in their graves for something to piss them off from their former life so they can 'roll in their graves'?" Absolutely! Ever since the disastrous new ownership of his beloved News-Press, visitors to T.M. Storke's grave report hearing sounds from within that sound like a fast rotisserie, thereby giving him the new nickname of "Pinwheel Storke."

When you are in your grave you have no further problems to solve.
