One of my favorite books of all times put in one gif.  Don’t know who created the gif but I send out a thank you!!! I used to imagine reading this to my kids if I had some…  XDDDDD

I had this in the form of a poster and actually had it up in my office for quite some time.  One hyper-sensitive co-worker was not pleased by it, but since it was in my own office, behind the door in order that it would only be seen when I had the door closed when I needed to concentrate, I really didn’t see how it was any of her business.  
For my money, this is the best alphabet book ever.  :)

Wilt Chamberlain running high school track in 1962

I managed to see Wilt Chamberlain in person twice.  Once was when my family was coming back from vacation and hit LA traffic.  We were just sitting there, when I look over at the car next to us…and Wilt Chamberlain is in the backseat!  He was also driving.  It was a little sports car and he’d had it modified so he could drive it.  One of these modifications was removing the front seat.  I would have paid good money to see him get in and out of that thing.  
The second time I saw him was in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.  I was showing a friend from New Zealand around town, and we had needed to use a bathroom, so we stopped there.  And while we were standing there, deciding where to go next, this man who had been sitting on one of the couches got up.  And up he went.  Up and up and up, and 7” 1’ of him.   I had to explain to my friend who he was, but, being perceptive, she had already discerned that he probably played basketball.  :)
