Seen around West Seattle, Thursday midday edition


That’s an SDOT crew giving a facelift to the California SW crosswalk at SW Findlay.


Not sure if it was SDOT or someone else, but there’s also been a “facelift” on that bridge column on the west side of the low bridge — and that covered the wolf art that’s been there at least since we posted about it almost a year ago. (Thanks to Patricia for the tip.)


When we did a West Seattle-wide gas-price survey last weekend, we mentioned we couldn’t include biodiesel prices because they’re not posted for drive-by viewing. The new Propel station at 35th/Barton has just changed that.


In The Junction, the Morton’s-to-Pharmaca pharmacy transition is almost complete. It’s scheduled to become official at the end of this week; as we reported two weeks ago, they’re offering freebies during the “grand opening.”

    I really like the wolf art and the paint ball colors. I will miss the wolves…

    The only question that I have is what type of biodiesel? Many blends are offered at various locations – B5, B20, B50, and B99.

    Also, I’m glad they clarified at the bottom of the board that biodiesel is for diesel vehicles. :)

    It sells B20 and B99. (original report here)

    …there’s an Art Wolfe joke in there somewhere…
    But what a shame that they painted over the cool wolves, and left the splats of paint above it…ahooOOOO, the werewolves of West Seattle…

    Yeah, when I first read it, my mind reversed the words and I thought it said Art Wolf.

    I hope the wolves come back, the chicken that lives underneath the bridge needs company. Anyone else seen the chicken?

  • WSB May 30, 2008 (11:10 am)

    Where’s the chicken? Sounds like a photo op.

    “Where’s the chicken?”

    Clara Peller’s come back to life, and is now doing ads for KFC! :P

    There is a big rooster that lives in the ivy covered slope south of the bike trail, I always seem to spot him when I do not have a camera handy.

Sorry, comment time is over.
