Back-In Angle

Let me just say that this parking space presented me with a challenge. It's on the corner of SW 3rd and Ankeny where Voodoo Doughnut operates 24 hours a day, according to their Web site. That's for another post.

It took a maneuver or two, but I finally made it, inside the line, the bumper not bumped. This one and only time I've tried this was in March, when Mama felt like making her first outing to the Bijou Cafe, a little over a month after she came home from the skilled nursing facility. On our last trip to the Bijou, we rode the bus there, then went on our MAX ride.

It won't be long before you get your "back in" license.

I was fascinated with the rigged up traffic cone. Other people must have been also because it seems to be chained to the sign post.

I hate that kind of parking!

I, too, can't wait for VooDoo Donuts photos! I LOVE donuts, but haven't had one for two years since I gave up sugar. Sigh.
