By Roger the Scanner Guy
When I was a little kid there were all these things going on in the world, Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Protests, Riots, Assassinations of political figures Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Each and every evening Walter Cronkite reported on the days events of Vietnam and someday I thought I would have to go to Vietnam. Between everything going on in the World and my personal life I was constantly walking on eggs. Being abused and bullied then there was the local news there was a lot of crime in my hometown even back then. I did not have many friends though I had a couple, Chucky and Chucky across the Alley (not the doll) Ha,ha. And this guy named David a couple years older that built go-karts in his garage. Their parents were concerned because I did bad things the bad things were my outlet from the abuse. Through the years kids have had to deal with things going on in the world and their personal lives and I bet some kids are stretched to the limits now. There are two more things that kids deal with today that I did not have to deal with as a kid.
The Virus and an unstable President who is not for all the people. When I was a kid there were several Presidents, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jerry Ford, Jimmy Carter, though Nixon was a little shaky he was still a leader. When I was a kid I knew I could always count on the president of our country to get us through whatever was going on in the World. Though nowadays many kids have computers and I Phones, outrageous allowances, Playstations and many don’t have to work their asses off for 2 Dollars a week mowing the lawn, pulling eons of weeds, digging turning soil, taking out the trash, washing the cars, windows, walls, shoveling snow, raking leaves, on and on I would rather have gone through what I have then go through what kids are going through today though my health isn’t so good anymore, I had rocky health when I was a kid too. The kids of today cannot just go out and play baseball, basketball, football, or much else with their friends with this Virus when they interact many kids wear masks like the rest of us. Many kids have not gone to school for a long time. I’d like to know how the kids of today are faring or getting through the Current Events of our time? Parents, are you spending a little more time with the children and making sure they are doing OK? You don’t have to answer I just hope ya all are taking care of your kids because some of them might be stressing out through all this stuff I did…HERES YOUR SCANNER REPORTS…

I had to get to the doctor today. I hate going with all this crap going on but I’m an old geezer with old geezer problems. I was waiting for my ride from my friend Jessica. She was totally late I only had 15 minutes to get to the doctor. There was no way I was going to make it on foot but I had to try so I took off up Milpas as fast as I could walk. I was very upset there was no way I would make it and they would cancel me for sure. I was breathing so hard, I had to stop I made it all the way to Montecito and Milpas but I would go no further. I had a vision of the intersection blocked off with something big laying under a circus tent in the middle of the intersection two detectives standing nearby wearing wide-brimmed hats and black overcoats one says to the other “I didn’t know that fucking whales could beach themselves this far!” I walked over and looked under the circus tent it was me laying there. I heard a voice “Roger! Get over here so I can take you to the Doctor!” It was my friend Jessica. She got me to the doctor. Since this quarantine I have gained more weight so now I got to walk.
