Weekend Adventure of sorts

I'm back! We had a good weekend....haven't really been very busy this month as far as work goes...not a good thing, but Saturday had 3 jobs in the Los Angeles was the second half of a old duplex that we had re keyed earlier in west L.A.
We did see some street preachers by the west L.A. house ...he had a bullhorn and was really preaching......when we went by later, he had given the horn to a woman who had taken over by that time....maybe his wife.....there are quite a few churches in the area...

Then the realtor wanted photos of two other houses that would be in fore, we spotted the famous Capital Records building

This is the entrance to the Hollywood Bowl..

Capital Record building......Hollywood is a study in contrasts....either very wealthy or poverty....not much in the way of middle class......the freeway traffic was terrible...really bad and this was on a Saturday........although the first house and the others were only 7 miles from each took us over 40 minutes to get to we actually had a minor fender bender..Alan hit the brakes but the van slid into a small car in front of us......thankfully, no damage was done and no one was hurt......the other person didn't want to pursue anything, we got our insurance information but she didn't want to go there so all is well......

We were very thankful to get out of LA county and back into sanity......our little town and house looked very good indeed........I am thankful we got work, and also that the accident was very minor....I am thankful that we live in a quiet little town and am not part of the rat race nor caught up in the vanity of Hollywood.

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
"May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word"
