I left at noon for what was to be a 7 1/2 hour drive to Northern California. The drive turned out to be 9 hours with an exhausting traffic jam getting through Los Angeles... BUT... sitting on I-5 rolling at best at 5 MPH... I see coming in to view passing right in front of me the very low flying 747 carrying shuttle Endeavor destined for its permanent home at the California Science Center. Flanked by 2 fighter jets, it was a breathtaking sight and exciting surprise. Tomorrow, it's off to teach a privately arraigned class of 17 students. Should be great fun!!!!!
