Scanner Reports 12-12-18

By Roger the Scanner Guy

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods? Got a heater? I have an electric one, wear layers, get under the covers at night. Which do you prefer, the cooler or hotter weather? I like it cooler at least compared to that night last July when I thought the world was coming to an end and the ER staff at Cottage thought they were in Hell with me. I kinda felt sorry for them, of course, they get paid to deal with people like me. I have to do it for free. I prefer the cold except when my bones get cold and I feel like I’m turning to mold and it hurts like hell all the time, the cooler weather makes it seem damp like rainy weather. It’s ok when it’s windy though except when my hands dry up then start falling apart and I gotta put hand lotion on them for a few days. It helps but they still dry out. As I age the lotion is becoming a necessity, less of other things, more of others.

Well, hopefully we will get more rain this season, at least break even though not likely with a lot of building going on. I heard of an attempt purse theft TUESday morning in the Granada Garage by a 16-year-old on a skateboard last seen South on Anacapa: red hair, blue shirt, dark pants, backpack. Gotta be real smart to commit crimes when you have red hair, I mean there are so many 16-year-old juveniles out there riding skateboards with red hair only a matter of time, a matter of time. Here are your Scanner Reports.

  1. Maybe veterans don’t “whine” about the firecrackers but that gives us no indication about the effect on them. Any veterans out there with indications? Roger, we don’t have a furnace so we wear lots of warm clothing too. We do have a steel lined fireplace that throws out heat for the living room, but that’s it. They say it’s healthier not to have rooms over warm.
