Gimme A Sign!

At the 405 overpass around the seventeenth mile of our Sunset Boulevard Walk, I found this sign stashed behind some weeds and fellow walker Lisl obliged me by recording its discovery:


Whoever was using it to augment their roadside panhandling, well… I may have my doubts as to whether they’re truly destitute or just sponging whatever handouts they can. But at least they have a sense of humor about it and I dutifully re-filed it in its previous location for obvious re-use.

More of Lisl’s pix from the walk are here.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
