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.

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 STRANGE TAKING PICTURES LADY AT PETALUMA OUTLET MALL IN PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA
  • 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.

Baby Stroller updates on neighbors.

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.
