Scanner Reports 6-13-17
Happy Wednesday. The Old Man finally got a cell phone. Of course, it's a very old school one. It comes with a cord to plug into a wall. Cost me 30 bucks at Rite Aid; one of those prepaid thingies flip phone with a camera. I can't figure that out though. I have taken a couple pictures of my walls. I just can't figure how to develop the film onto the computer. Oh well, at least I have the phone. In case I'm running away from somewhere, I can call a getaway Yellow Cab. I was playing with it last night (the phone), trying to figure it out. I'm kinda slow, always have been. I have only made one phone call. I don't like talking on the phone. I think I got that from my Grand Dad. He did not like the phone either. He'd call you on the phone and only say what was necessary then hang up. You'd be sitting there talking away to air. The only calls I ever make is to my mom once a week. I never answer my phone and I enjoy leaving weird messages on my phone to freak people out. The latest goes something like this: Why do you call and not leave a message? No one ever says anything. I'm here alone and I don't understand why no one leaves a message, beeep. People say things like, "Are you all right?" Or "Are you there?" Or they just hang up. My landlady cracks up laughing. I do that old Tom Hanks message once in a while from the movie “Nothing in Common” he did with Jackie Gleason back in the early 80's: "Hello, Hello, Hello…I can't hear you, can you speak up? Hello? Damn phone must be broken... beeep.” His message wasn't exactly like that. There's air then the caller is yelling, then at the end of his message it says "OK, OK, you don't have to yell!" Callers on my answering machine leave messages like "Hello! Hello! Can you hear me? Are You OK?!" I listen to them and laugh. It's my only entertainment, I have no life.

I'm not using that cell phone at all, but someone's calling me from out of the country and leaving messages. It’d be my luck some illegal thing and the undercover's are listening in. I'm not answering it. NO WAY! NO HOW! Not even if they say, “The Panga is loaded with weed, and money and is in such and such a place.” I knew it; damn cell phones are trouble. It's a good thing the cord came with it, they don't know where I am. Better start digging on those tunnels. Have a great Happy Hump Wednesday.
