Scanner Reports 2-19-18
By Roger the Scanner Guy
Once upon a time, long, long ago, a man named Peter Sklar took interest in my rants and offered to let me post things I heard over a police scanner and rant a little here on edhat. I agreed to it and have been ranting ever since. One day around Christmas I was hanging out doing laundry looking toward Milpas street as I was walking that way and I saw a 1963 Buick station wagon go by, I ran down the driveway to get a Look-See but by the time I got down to the end of the driveway it was gone. I turned and went back up the driveway and told Belinda about the vehicle. My mother had one, a 1963 Buick Skylark only it wasn't a wagon. I hadn't seen a station wagon like that for many years I was bummed that the vehicle got away so quickly, I'd probably never see it again probably some tourist from LA drove it up here, damn tourists. I went back to what I had been doing before. A couple minutes later I noticed a man walking up the driveway with a big smile on his face he was holding a plate of Christmas cookies. I don't trust people that smile, never have they scare me, I asked him if I could help him he said he was looking for some guy named Roger, I said that would be me I shook his hand and grabbed the cookies before he could change his mind...We spoke for some time I introduced him to Belinda, (I miss them both so much) then I walked him over to the parking lot next door as he said he had parked there in his 1963 Buick Skylark station wagon. "Will I'll be a Son of a Gun!" I said and added "That is your car!!!" I told him I ran down the driveway to get a better look and it was gone. I love older cars, always have can't stand these pieces of crap on the roads nowadays, one fender bender they are done plus they cost as much as a house. After seeing his vehicle, smile and all I trusted him. We were friends I was very sad when he became ill then passed away, but he wanted Edhat to go on and as long as Edhat goes on ,so will I until my time comes. I thought when Belinda sobered up a couple years after Peters death I would ask her to marry me after some time but she had some kind of incident during a seizure and she passed away too. Someday I hope to be with all my friends again until then I am here.

So all weekend I have been not feeling too good, guess I got something last night. I had the worse aches and pains night before that cramps. Horrible pain when I don't feel good I get a little ANGRY on Saturday a TURDest waved their arm in my face and yelled "Go Away!" in my Face as I was going next door to get a drink. I guess I have to cut my hair and look acceptable for everyone in Santa Barbara The person who did that will never know how close they came to losing their arm they almost hit me. I don't like getting yelled at I don't like fighting I guess from now on I just won't leave my home ever again and take a vow of silence and not speak any more course I'll continue writing the scanner reports, I will not cut my hair.

You are adorable just the way you are, Roger.

Roger, Ever read the book "The Ugly American"? If you think some tourists can be a pain here, some of the ones going to Europe can be even worse. They expect everyone to speak English, get angry if they don't, and for things to be the same as in the USA.

Great story, and beautiful words. Thanks for sharing Roger.
Feb 19, 2018 11:06 AM
I was lucky enough to meet Peter and tell him how much I appreciated Edhat. Thank you, Roger, for persevering and continuing to share your stories with us.

Thank You for your comments they are very nice and I appreciate them but WATCH OUT the Thin Skinners are out to vote us all down as the CRY BABIES only know how to be negative and put others down...I read your comment FLICKA they are here all of them Just like their Daddy in the white house. By the way I'm for gun control now another reason for some of you to hate me...Peter was a great man and his memory will continue to live through those of us who heave hearts, like his Sons. His Sons are good men I'm sure wherever he is he's very proud of his kids and wife. I bet he is laughing at some of these comments too! Will to my friends Later, To my Haters I love you Ta Ta!

Roger, it seems there are a couple people on Edhat bent on destroying it and everyone's feelings. Best plan: ignore them, ignore their comments, and ignore down votes. They don't exist. That would drive them nuts. They are using their down votes to get under your skin. And, in doing that, they've gotten under my skin, too. I'm going to ignore them starting 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...now.
Feb 19, 2018 12:40 PM
Maybe they won't know who we are if we wear a disguise....
Feb 19, 2018 12:57 PM
Roger we enjoy your writing and you have made an important contribution to our community and edhat (of course). Your opinions are refreshing and often say what I am thinking. You blast out hypocrisy and expose stupidity, but in a nice way. Please don't stop!!
Feb 19, 2018 01:54 PM
Thank You, Red Creek I don't plan on it. :)

Oh Happy Hour is over the negative drunks are back to circle jerk and vote all the comments down poor babies I guess their mommies did not burp them today.

Laughed out loud! at your statement: "I don't trust people that smile, never have, they scare me."
I smile at everyone, and even say 'hi' when passing by strangers. Yah, sure, it spawns the occasional creeper, but I don't mind; if any harm were to come my way I'd rather be remembered for paying forward a smile than disregarding another human being in the hopes I may have brightened someone's day just a little bit...and I get to see a lot of cool old cars that way :-)
You, dear Roger, bring enlightenment to Edhat readers every day by being our "Scanner Guy" :-) Keep it up.
