old dog learns new trick

Man, I'm gonna miss our intern, Perry. He told me how to do this at lunch.


The four of us (Anne, Doug, Bert the Bird, myself) were in Pacific Grove this past weekend, the second of two trips up the Central Coast in recent weeks. While Bert adjusted to the cottage at Bide-A-Wee we spent time gazing at the creatures at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. At least for myself, I like the jellyfish exhibit. I got a few mpegs but they're too large to upload. Here's two traveling companions. We're in the aquarium restaurant. One really works up an appetite after looking at all those fish.

Hello, thumbheaders. This is Perry, the intern who's returning to Berkeley after spending part of his summer "working" with us. Looks happy, doesn't he? Wouldn't you if you knew you were getting paid relatively well to design Lego models of engineering processes (guffaw guffaw) while your classmates were coming home with paper hats and hair smelling like french fries?? But I'm sure he isn't the type to rub it in (Hey Cho-Dawg - here's some paper money - treat yourself to some shampoo!! Bwahahahah!!). Yet. He also worked on other things but not wanting to turn this into a bedtime story, I won't go into it. I'd love to show the models he created but they're locked up, much too valuable to display. But I'll show them when I can. Anyway, good luck Perry and I hope to see you next year!
