Boxers 'n' Briefs: You See L.A.

My son John is going to be a doctor. He has been telling us that since he was five years old. The funny thing is, he has stuck with that goal through grade school, Junior High, and High School. He has done everything to prepare himself for it; he joined the volunteer organization at a local hospital, and worked himself up to be President of it (with 200+ volunteers in the program). He has taken classes to earn his EMT license, and rode along in ambulances every chance he got. He studied hard, got good grades, and joined campus organizations that helped him develop his leadership skills.

So it was with great pride and great sadness that I helped him move into the dorms at UCLA last weekend. UCLA is an extremely difficult school to get into, but it is also one of the best pre-med schools in the state. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you ask him) it is a 6 hour drive away. I guess I should just look on the bright side, however... more trips to LA means more Letterboxes!

In other news, my fifteen seconds of fame arrived in the form of a cameo on the local television show Bay Area Backroads! I spent a wonderful day boxing and filming with lisascenic and Team Tysonosaurus last Spring (BoneDoc did her part at a different time/location - GREAT job, BoneDoc!!), and I got to be on TV for it! What could be better?

And finally, as I am sure you ALL know by now, Ryan installed The Big Update this weekend. WOW!!! Thanks, GT, for all you do... the latest features are fantastic (ESPECIALLY the Location Search... I can't tell you how impressive that is!)

Ok, here we go, the linkage...

1) A mind-bobbling concept.

2) Clover-achiever.

3) Tip a canoe, and camera too.

4) Unfounded fears.

5) Fall + Pumpkin = Squash

6) Know way, know how

7) You're supposed to be the carvER, not the carvEE...

8) A perfect day of letterboxing

9) I do transfers the old-fashioned way... iron it!

10) Measure twice, cache once.

11) A picture is worth, uh, 34 words.

12) Scratch him just right, and his leg will start thumping...

13) It just ghost to show you.

14) And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

15) Stroking and pulsing and digits, oh my!

16) Polly want a carbonate?

17) A new motherboard.

18) Tongs for the memories...

19) Hear hear.

20) Missing purse-on report.

Ok, that should do it for tonight! Now go and play on AQ, especially with the new geocoder!
