Week 39 - Ahoy Matey!

"Nobody more welcome than yourself, my son. Sit you down and hear the news. Here's Cap'n Flint--I calls my parrot Cap'n Flint, after the famous buccaneer--here's Cap'n Flint predicting success to our v'yage. Wasn't you, cap'n?"

And the parrot would say, with great rapidity, "Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!" till you wondered that it was not out of breath..."

-from Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

And so ends the 2011-2012 school year, with a wave from the pirate and Cap'n Flint, the parrot.

Week 35 - Junior Seau

In loving memory of Junior Seau (1969-2012)

Dale once had the privilege of sitting next to Junior on a flight to San Diego. They talked the entire flight, from takeoff to landing. "He was a genuinely nice, friendly guy. It felt like we became fast friends, if only for that flight." He was Dale's favorite football player before the flight, and even more so afterwards. It was a joy to watch him play for the San Diego Chargers all those years. He will be missed.
