It happened again
Went to two car shows today. It's amazing how there can actually be two car shows in one city, both crowded.
The first was in Johnny Carson Park, across from Burbank Studios, home of the Tonight Show.
While driving there, I wondered out loud to my husband whether or not Jay Leno would be there. He has his own amazing collection of cars, and has been known to show up at these things.
We walked through, perusing the classic cars...no Jay Leno. Oh well.
Off we went to our next destination...Woodley Park for another classic car show.
As we were walking around, we noticed a crowd gathering by one particular car. Of course, being the incredibly nosy person that I am...I insisted we make our way over to see what was going on.
And, lo and behold, there was that familiar silver hair, blue jeans and work shirt.
Jay Leno was was there, drawing a bit of a crowd. No obnoxious paparazzi, no screaming, no fainting.
Just regular folk politely asking Jay to pose for a picture and sign an autograph. And he happily complied.
This was not our first encounter with Jay. A few years, I wrote this about another Sunday with him.
Oh yeah, last night we went out to dinner and watched Steve Perry walk by.
Living in L.A. is cool, no?
