Meeting Dr. Seuss

I attended the weekly site meeting today.  Learned something new about Knox boxes. My guess is it’s supposed to make me think of Ft. Knox’s impenetrable security, but instead made me think of Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss.

Haven’t read the book?  Check out some highlights…

Knox in box.
Fox in socks.

in socks in box…

Look, sir.  Look, sir.
Mr. Knox, sir.
Let’s do tricks with bricks and blocks sir.

So…good meeting.  I have *no* idea whether they’re installing the Knox box or not.

On day 14 of Janathon, I ran 3 miles in the misty, murky morn.  My legs started out a bit crampy and then relaxed.  Yay!  I could  have gone further but I ran out of time.  I’m going to try to squeeze in 2 more miles today.  Peace!  I’m out.
