When we visit different towns I usually look out for those small free newspapers that are left around for tourists and visitors. You can normally see some interesting stuff if you give them a look-see. Sometimes they have restaurant coupons or ads for a car wash or something that we could use. Maybe a crossword puzzle. Sometimes not.
We found two of them the other day here in Pismo Beach. These had columns with “police logs” in them and I’m thinking the writer of these columns is a wanna-be comedian or something. It was very witty writing that was good for a few chuckles.
Here are some of the funnies we read:
“Trespassing: police were called to a church to evict some sinner who’d trespassed against them, while pursuing the temptation of digging through their trash bin.”
“Squatter: police were called to a park on Third Street because there was someone in the bathroom. He’d been flushed before officers arrived.”
“Medical aid: police and paramedics were called at 11:30 pm for a fellow who was so drunk he couldn’t stand. He was conscious but unresponsive, also called plastered. He was taken to the hoosegow to sleep it off.”
“Cats: a real animal lover complained to police about a man feeding apparently stray cats.”
“Loitering: music critics on Blank Street complained to police about a man in his 60’s who was sitting outside a business playing a guitar for tips. The day before, presumably the same man was set up outside another business playing his guitar. Both times he hit the road…..Jack”
“Trespassing: police were called to the Social Security Office because a homeless taxpayer was sleeping by the back door.”
“Arrest: police were called to a downtown street where some sot was chasing a woman around trying to bum cigarettes. He was shown to the no-smoking iron bar hotel to sleep it off.”
“Theft: police responded to a Catholic prep school where a theft was reported. The rascal better hope police find him before the nuns do.”
“Disturbance: police were called to Beach Street where a man was walking around and yelling…”It’s not fair.”…Well, duh buddy!”
You can probably tell we had a quiet day today. Bruce made a repair to our water filtration system and I worked on Zoey’s photo album. Gray and overcast skies again today so nothing new to take pics of. It was a wonderful and boring day at the beach.
Until next time…..so long for now!
