Boxers 'n' Briefs: I'm Baaaa-aaack!

I know, it's been a while since the last Boxers 'n' Briefs. I took my daughters on vacation last week to the beach in Monterey (CA). What a fantastic time we had! Waking up in the morning, and wandering out on the beach. Watching the sun set over Monterey Bay while dolphins frolicked in the waves. Playing in the fantastic tide pools. We spent a VERY full day at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, where Katie finally overcame her fear of roller coasters, and rode the Giant Dipper... 3 times! We even went to the fantastic "Dennis the Menace Park" and snagged a letterbox there. Strangely, however, I didn't have the free time I thought I would to do some writing...

So here is what happened over the last two weeks...

1) Yakking of lacking in backpacking backtracking.

2) The Eastman Always Rings Twice.

3) When a buddy meets a buddy, comin' through the Ryan...

4) WHY do we encourage her???

5) Vive la difference!

6) Blessed with second site.

7) We'll know soon enough...

8) L.W., Euphonium home!

9) Has she been myspayed?

10) Some great advice.

11) Suffering series stash.

12) I love it when a plan comes together!

13) Vacating the promises.

14) Hat trick.

15) Police release me, let me go.

16) Driving my karma.

17) Urban learnin'.

18) The year in review.

19) I'M THERE!!!!

20) Amanda for all seasons.

21) Birthday shellabration.

22) Benign growth.

23) How to Cranmere boxes into a single day.

24) YA? Yeah!

25) The glass is half full, and there's room for more!

26) Don't get rattled.


28) Boxers do the nicest things.

29) Working with Mr Yuk is a gas!

So, I suspect more than a few of you have Potter Plans tonight... happy reading!

Boxers 'n' Briefs: Golden Boxers

Congratulations to ME!
This is officially the 50th "Boxers 'n' Briefs" blog entry! Who knew (or wished) that I would be able to sustain such a seemingly unending barrage of bad puns, corny jokes, and obscure references, all wrapped around Atlas Quest board posts? I have read literally EVERY post on AQ since October 30, 2006 (well, to be truthful, every one since Sept 2, 2006, when I first "discovered" the boards, but Oct 30th was the launch of BnB). From my first "link" to the present, that constitutes 59,853 posts. I haven't gone back and counted how many links I have done, but I figure I average, say, 18 links per BnB, so that would be approximately 900 groaners I have subjected the Letterboxing world to. You are apparently a very patient group.

So thank you all for your support, patronage, and comments (any blogger will tell you that we LOVE the comments). Without you, this would just be me making jokes to myself... which is pretty much what I do the rest of the time in my life anyway.

1) Don't make her axe a second time.

2) Let us know when you are through hiking.

3) iPod in your general direction.

4) Log-istics.

5) He ain't heady, he's my brother.

6) Lessons found at the bottom of a glass.

7) A true gift.

8) Abbott and Costello and Yuk.

9) Pardon me Ryan, is that the chat on your to-do queue?

10) Relockation.

11) A light blue PT Bruiser.

12) Chestnut's boasting of an open fire.

13) Desperately Seeking Talent.

14) God save the Queen.

15) Pitcher pictures.

16) Statistics never lie.

17) "T" is for "Thousand"

18) FF4KK

19) The longest journey starts with the Single's Steps.

20) Basics revisited.

21) Letterboxing diplomacy.

22) Self-indulgent D&D link.

23) Not-So-Good vibrations.

Oh, and one more interesting fact... this blog entry will most likely contain my 10,000th page visit! Thanks again!
