First, the good news - The Boy no longer has to use crutches! He still has to wear the full brace for a week and then he can switch to a smaller brace. He even gets to sleep in his loft bed again (he's been sleeping on a cot). The one thing he can't do is drive the Race Car - nothing with a clutch.
He is thrilled and already back at work. Tuesday is the first day in his new class. Busy busy busy...
Second, the commute news. As promised, we now have a swarm of smaller shuttle busses to haul us between campus buildings and the train stations. Yes, that was stations plural.
The busses are very nice silver Mercedes things - there must be a dozen or so of them and the only way to tell which one is the right one is that little white thing on the windshield. I found out that not watching closely enough can lead to a surprise side trip. And the discovery of a second train station that has nothing to do with Caltrain.
The driver was friendly and apologetic and I got to see a part of San Jose I'd never seen before. I managed to get home (eventually) and I was comfortable - these shuttle busses are wonderful and have actual reading lights and internet connections.
Throw in a bathroom and a burrito bar and I could be very content riding around in them all day.
That's it - move along...
