# 4 - Iroquois Park
Status: 2 minutes late

I arrived at 4th & Broadway at 7:09. The bus had been scheduled for 7:04. A man in an electric wheelchair who had reached the stop just before said hello and I said hello back. I saw a bus approaching on Broadway and decided to wait, just in case. It was a #23, so I walked down to Breckinridge.

The bus showed up at 7:22 and was relatively full -- at least, it had more passengers than the 7:34 usually has. The sports bra woman was at Oak Street. The last few times she's been wearing a Seniors Class of '08 sweatshirt and dark sweatpants under brown shorts. She was smoking a cigarette and drinking from a water bottle. A man in a ball cap boarded the bus, and the woman sang from the sidewalk "...America..."
As the bus pulled away, the man said, Well, that was a fun stop. A few people laughed.
The driver said, She's in a good mood today. 
Ball-cap: I could tell she was smiling. She was talking to a few friends who weren't there, though.
