I started my day with exercise and walking around the neighborhood. I liked the music I had been listening to and decided to keep listening while I cool down from the walk. I grabbed some ice from the nearby 7-eleven and was sitting down when I saw a Lakewood police about to turn the corner. There was a woman with her dog panhandling on the median on Sheridan Blvd. The police officer stopped in the left lane to give her a ticket. Although, in the end, he just warned her that to move. Afterward, he parked in the 7-eleven parking area and talked with a co-worker by his car.
After the girl got out of the street, I saw a van pull up in the 7-eleven gas area. Two kids, a tall teenager and an elementary student, got out and went to the light signal and started cleaning the tag writing off. Whatever type of cleanser they had, must be very potent because when they sprayed it once and wiped it away within minutes. There was no logo on the van and the kids had on regular clothes. I was very impressed with the fact that there are people driving around cleaning up the tagging around the neighborhood.
Just before I left that area, I saw a Volkswagen Bus which reminded me of the California days of driving my bus. My bus was named ladybug. It had a red body, with black accents. I remember driving it while I was pregnant with my first child. I loved all the VW’s that were in my life, like my very first one which was a baby blue Rabbit, plus I had a champaign colored Karmann Ghia. I loved traveling with the sound of the engines that sounded like a bird tweeting.
I posted this blog to create a milestone of some of the things I see at any given day. Sometimes my days are full of more incredible things but this was some things that people in my area might find important. Please feel free to comment below or share with others. Thanks for stopping by.
