Before all this commotion, a wacky couple had driven off. They came BACK to hassle me about taking pictures of their car. The guy was insistent that there was some law that I could not take pictures in the middle of the road (this in a park, I certainly hadn’t been in the “road” when they drove down or they would have hit me. They say they are going to call the police. Okay, go for it. A while later a police man came up and asked if I was alright. I was eating my salad from Trader Joe’s. Turns out someone had called the Police saying that I had been driving erratically in the parking lot – like I was drunk. The officer knew immediately that I was fine.
What did all this do? It prevented me from looking at the cars that “belonged” to the rude dudes. My theory: All this was done to keep me from noting the plates of the cars. I did get other plates though and am adding them below.
THE CASE OF THE RUDE FRISBEE THROWERS: (See the full story below) Luchessi Park in Petaluma, California. I noticed something strange: There were basically no people around, but all these cars. I was taking pictures. A male owner of one of the cars above came from nowhere and asked why I was taking a picture of his car. He walked off the stage.
- A while later, seemingly from nowhere, come along these four Frisbee players, including the guy who said something about me taking a picture of his car. I could see being miffed, but the whole group ended up acting like real bullies on the playground. Take a look at the picture above. Each one is positioned so that if I had continued around the circle I would not have been able to see their plates. Coincidence? I don’t know. All I know is that in mystery books, the main character is often very suspicious of coincidences. SEE DOWN BELOW FOR OTHER PICS TAKEN OF CARS
I am not sure why green car guy has two Frisbee “carts” in front of his car. Notice that he has started taking pictures and verbally he made a big point about the fact that he was taking pictures.
Note – green car guy has brought his baby carriage out a ways and four more people have joined in. Where did they come from? Stage left.
Green car guy is still making a big issue of taking pictures of me. Of course I am taking pictures of the loud obnoxious group.
Bright green shirt guy has joined in on the picture taking.
The car below may have belonged to the wacky couple before they ran off and then came back.
- THE CASE OF THE NON TRAVELING DOORMAT: This doormat has been used in front of the doorway that I see through at least 4 owners. A friend said that this could be normal. In my experience. Present owner, previous owner from Hawaii, one previous owner of the mat was a single lady. She did not stay long. Then there was a couple and the lady was stationed out of Camp Pendleton I think.

- THE CASE OF THE PEOPLE BEGGING FOR MONEY: There has been a person begging for money at every store that I have gone to recently. They hadn’t set up shop anywhere. Yesterday, I got a story about this lady who was about to be out on the streets. She didn’t have a car to sleep in. I watched her later. She seemed to know the next person – same church? No more scam artists. I have a giving nature.
“Personalized Plates” post (the one with pictures of plates) updated with July 14-July 24th. Yep, Envy plates.

I will have to work on this tomorrow.
- THE CASE OF THE RUDE FRISBEE THROWERS: So, this was a very interesting visit to Luchessi Park in Petaluma, California. I hadn’t really planned on being there, but noticed something strange when I drove up. There were basically no people around, but all these cars. I was taking pictures. This young couple left and then came back and were very confrontational. It’s like they were “cued” on what to say. Anyway – that is another story. I have been wanting to tell the story of these strange people who were harassing me in the park.
- While I was talking to the two “kids”, an male owner of one of the cars above came from nowhere and asked why I was taking a picture of his car. I may have given him a flip answer – I don’t remember. He walked off the stage while I haggled with the kids.
- Then, seemingly from nowhere come along these four Frisbee players. I had barely noticed that there is a course at the park. One of the four was the guy whose car I took a picture of. I could see being miffed, but they ended up acting like real bullies on the playground. Take a look at the picture above. Each one is positioned so that if I had continued around the circle I would not have been able to see their plates.
Solution: All the street theater was to keep me from getting to noting the plates of the cars that “belong” to the four rude dudes. Here are others from the park:
The above white SUV left as the commotion was going on.
