About three times a year, I fly to my home town of Los Angeles from Oregon. I was looking through some of my photos from last year, found above photo I took in LA, California, to share with my readers.

Why is this significant? Because in Oregon, we do not pump our own gas. It is state mandate to have it pumped for you by a gas station attendant. The photo below was taken recently while I was waiting for my gas tank to fill, from the comfort of my car.  They even washed my windshield for me. Ahhhh.

Just one of the little things that makes it so great to live on the Central Oregon Coast!

Too funny! Many times when I cross into California from Oregon I will sit in my car for a minute until it dawns on me that I have to pump my own gas too! Just one of the perks of living in Oregon. Thanks for sharing.

Barbara Le Pine That car is a rolling  quagmire for a psychiatrist. I would be really concerned about those 'Flying Monkeys"!

Hi Barbara, holy cow, gas station attendants!  Haven't seen one of those guys since the 70s.  Will have to visit Oregon soon.

Rob, I do the same thing!

 

By the way, I hope you know that you have the best Vietnamese restaurant in the world, the Viet Cafe, located in Bend, Oregon.  I am truly jealous!

Sandy and Norm,  cue the flying monkey music! My personal favorite is the sticker that says, "Where are we going? And why am I in this handbasket?"

Michael, reminds me of growing up in LA. Remember the Texaco attendants dressed in white and red suits? We have attendants in bright orange vests. It took me awhile to train myself to stay in the car when pulling in to a station.

Hi Barbara -- fun post!   You may remember San Marino when there were gas station attendants required by the city up until just a few years ago.   Although they must still exist in California, they are a rarity.
