Day 75: Raymond

When I get done braving the crowd at the 33rd & Pico Trader Joe's and pack all my groceries myself, and pay, I am so happy to see Raymond.  Raymond works for Trader Joe's as a parking lot attendant, singer and entertainer.  Yesterday he helped me to my car and loaded the groceries, while serenading me with a great version of the Carpenters' "Close to you."  He is always chatty and he adds a lot of character to that place.  He makes it worth the crowds, even the parking lot mayhem.  When I leave I have a car full of excellent, cheap groceries and a smile on my face.  And Raymond puts the cart back for me, bonus.
