Scanner Reports 7-21-19

Well hello, it’s FRYday. That is basically how I feel, fried. And not the good way. Baked would be better. Someone made a comment the other day about these “Missing at Risk” folks, and I second that. Is everyone who is missing considered “Missing at Risk” runaways? Folks that take off for a few days? Old folks who wander off to the Farmer’s Market getting off track a couple hours? Someone who has had enough and needs a vacation a couple days? I can never runaway again. Someone calls the police and media, and suddenly I’m “Missing at Risk”.  I’m not complaining it’s probably a good thing. It seems like a new thing, a new way of finding people quickly, even those who don’t want to be found.

When I was a runaway kid I never wanted to be found, even when it saved my life. Had someone not called the police I would have most certainly not survived the night. It was eight below zero and I had frost bite on my leg. I was lucky, but did not feel lucky, and still tried to get away. Now that I’m older, I will most likely run away at some point. As I age, where will I hide if everyone’s looking? Maybe I ought to order a muu muu in my size and some makeup, so if I want to get away at some point the police would never think it was me, an ugly old fat bearded woman. I could be someone’s grandmother. I bet some of the local “Missing at Risk” folks don’t want to be found; they just want to take a break, feel the freedom. Remember the freedom? Everyone has felt freedom at some point in their lives. Freedom is free, or it was till warmongers put conditions on it and said it wasn’t. Better to not listen to them. Feel the freedom and shut off other people’s anger. They need a break, a vacation, they need to get a way. I doubt if anyone would ever report me as missing at risk. The cat might call in, “meow, meow, meow”. He’d really be asking for food, “The fat man took off and forgot to feed me. Yea, he’s wearing a muu muu with flowers on it and has a beard. Looks like a plump ZZ Top. Have him pick up some Fancy Feast, yea, the gravy kind, maybe some liver and dry stuff, something good. Not that no grain crap!” The only time I’m missing is when someone wants something.

Remember frozen candy bars in the freezer? Almond Joy, Hershey, Reeses, Chunky, Mounds, Mars? I remember when a frozen candy bar was a dime, and a soda pop 15 cents. On hot summer days when freedom was free, and so was air to breathe, water to drink, you went outside to play with your friends and didn’t go home till way after dark, and you were not “Missing at Risk”. Times have changed. Will they ever change back? Hard to say. At least we can be free in our thoughts.
