Phone booth

When I was 19 I had just graduated High School in Texas (Class Rank; 699 of 729 Graduates), graduated US Marine Bootcamp and went to my technical school in Millington, Tn. to become a Basic Avation Munitions Technician.

During the school I met a 16 yr old girl named Lisa Hood and fell in love. I would search out every phone booth around so I could stop and make a call whenever needed, which was often.

We would talk for so long…well, as long as my $10 roll of quarters would buy.  ”Seventy five cents for the next 10 minutes.” I’m not sure I remember that price accurately.

Now, almost everyday on my drive home from work I use my hands free cell to call that same girl.  I’m sometimes amazed at how much we talk.

No anniversary or anything, just thinking about how fast life is going by, how much has changed and is changing and how happy I am that I’m still talking to that same green-eyed girl from my teen years.

The First 20 Hours - How to Learn Anything: Josh Kaufman at TEDxCSU (by TEDxTalks)

Pre-ordering the book, b/c this makes perfect sense! Not 10,000 hours to be good at something, only 20 hours to be good, 10k to be the TOP of the chosen field.

LightBox spoke with Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki, who photographed the explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Tlumacki, who has photographed more than 20 marathons in his 30 years at the Globe, describes the sheer chaos of the scene.

I wondered when the day would, but it seems it’s already here.

This is just fanastic!

I’m start Day 5 tomorrow, rest over the weekend and Monday I’ll do Day 6. Then Wed or Thur I’ll re-test to see if I can move to the next cycle.

Dear Jim,  Please paint me Timothy Dalton having an intense arm wrestling match at Stonehenge with Oprah Winfrey as William Shatner force feeds her Spandeu Ballet cassette tapes. Also Tupac Shakur is fly tipping his knackered hot point washing machine from his rusted out blue Ford transit.  Thanks, Chris
