Larry Himmel Visits Leucadia
Himmel prepares to get funkified.
KFMB Ch 8's Larry Himmel did a pretty good human interest piece about Leucadia tonight, Still Funky After All These Years
-The piece begins with a first person view point of driving north bound on the L101, a perspective pioneered by my car cam right here on this blog, heh.
-Barb knows Leucadia well (so intriqued!)
-Are you Biff or Skippy had me lmao. I confess that I loved Larry Himmel's old half hour variety show as a kid.
-Watch for the north bound lycra 10 speed biker spinning out in the dirt due to the total lack of a bike lane.
-"The last of the laid back beach towns." So true. All the other beach towns have been infected with a strange competitive aggressive vibe. What gives?
-"Leucadians say they are from Leucadia, never Encinitas." Hell yeah, I don't even write Encinitas on my return address on my mail. I write Leucadia.
-Final shot includes those pesky orange sandbags, curse them!
Nice story Larry, thanks man!
