Encore Elysée Wednesday

Another interesting combination of people gathered at the Elysée this evening. Steve Goldfield arrived in his Ferrari 430 and I almost talked him into parking it right on the corner in front of our sidewalk tables. When Steve found a space up the street, I did manage to talk Josh Lange into parking his Pangea--his re-conceptualized Corvette--on the corner where it stayed for about an hour until an L.A.P.D. officer asked nicely if he wouldn't mind putting it somewhere else.

Then Gérard Ismaël showed up and I managed to talk him into parking right on the corner...

Wesley Harris rose to the occasion and matched Gérard three games to three at backgammon. Hélène Cardona, John FitzGerald, Marion Comer and I talked at length about the homeless member of our group, Dr. Russell Welch, who had been a professor of physics before he was recruited by the U.S. Air Force. Jay Huffschmidt of The Auto Gallery made his first visit and compared notes with Tom Meade on the vagaries of life.
