The Good People of L.A.

This morning on the drive in, I stopped to help some folks whose car needed a jump.  It took about 2 minutes.  They were happy, I was happy, and my whole day immediately changed to a flavor better than ice cream.  Yummmm!

I already tweeted a version of the opening paragraph because I thought it was a fun thought to share, but it also ties in with the fun time this weekend at the Redbull Soapbox Derby that I was already planning to tell you about.

The Derby took place in several blocks of downtown Los Angeles on September 26. There were a lot of people in a small amount space which meant we didn’t get to see much of the actual runs, but there were also large screens so we waited at the finish line area and watched the precarious journeys down Hill Street, through the straw bale chicane, over the jumps (lots of air, often too much) and down to the finish at 5th and Olive.

These were some fun vehicles and crazy drivers and it was hot (92).  Could have done with some of that ice cream, but water was good. We stood and watched and sweated rivers and laughed some more.  When the jumbotron went out, we just watched the people and admired the buildings and chatted.

Anyway, thought I’d share with you a peek at the good people of L.A. last Saturday.

P.S.  Note to self: need to get out more, there’s still a world of fun out there!
