Link of the day

Today's comes from Josh:

Adult Big Wheels!

The site reminded me of when I was kid. We just moved to Fort Bragg and I decided to take my Big Wheels for a spin. Well I didn't stop at the end of our neighborhood and I ended up following a four lane highway for a while until the military police picked me up. They dumped me in the back of their truck to take me to the station. I remember it nearly fried me because it was bare metal cooking in the hot sun all day! I got dropped off at the station and my parents were called in.

I think they had already been looking for me and saw me in the back of the truck while they were driving around trying to find a kid cruising in his Big Wheels.

It's a wonder I'm still alive. Must've been some wanderlust since we had just moved from Chicago (Fort Sheridan).

Iris isn't Big Wheels age yet but she's close...

Great quote:

"You thought, as a boy, that a mage is one who can do anything. So I thought, once. So did we all. And the truth is that as a man's real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at least he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he *must do*. . . ."

- Ursula Le Guin, from A Wizard of Earthsea.

And in the spirit of ruining the mood created by such a fine quote comes the following discovery by Josh:
