S’Gooda To Be Backa

Very much the pleasant flight home last night and a nice surprise to find it raining when the plane landed at 9:35 p.m. While shuttling from the airport back to my truck parked out by the Crowne Plaza Hotel I figured it was just localized sprinkles, but it kept up pretty much all the way out of the LAX area and across L.A.

But if there was any of even the slightest remaining desire to get on my bike and attempt to catch-up with the Midnight Ridazz, it was combo-quashed by the massive gridlock around downtown that kept me from getting home until after 11 p.m., and the little storm cell over Silver Lake that was bringing the rain down relatively steady when I finally pulled into the garage. That, and it was so wonderful to be greeted by Susan and the dawgz and catz, I couldn’t imagine being away from them for another minute.

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 laonstage.com, 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."
