Friday/ new tires & old neon

My car needed new tires, so I went down to the Les Schwab tire center in Georgetown this morning.
They needed some time before they could get to my car, so I went for a walk.
By the time I got back at 11 am, there was already a line of people at the St. Vincent de Paul food bank across the street.
There was also a King County mobile medical clinic (big van) right next to the food bank building that provide a lifeline to homeless people.

The Marco Polo Bar & Grill with its 50’s neon sign is hanging in there. It’s a family-owned bar serving roasted chicken & pub grub.
A little further north I found this sign for the New La Hacienda Motel. (La Hacienda: ‘The Ranch’). The sign at the Vac Shop in the back says BLACK LIVES MATTER. Just last Sunday, there was another horrible police shooting of an unarmed black man (Jacob Blake) in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Then during the protests there on Tuesday, there was a white domestic terror attack (perpetrator: 17 yrs old with AR-15-style rifle) that left 2 people dead and one wounded. Pictures of the attacker sitting in the front row at a Trump rally surfaced soon thereafter.
