The Folsom HIM’s made their presence felt this beautiful morning. It was looking like we may be low on numbers but Allen Tate,  Montross, and Sparky came in hot giving us the exact number we needed.

Warm up:

  • 10 Hillbillies
  • 10 Cherry Pickers
  • 10 Toy Soldiers

The Thang:

We mosey’d to the lower lot were we had 3 stations set up. We worked all 3 stations for 2 sets at 7 minutes in length.

  • Station 1
    • Pearl Jam had a ladder drills set up on the “Platform of HIM’s”.  YHC found that his footwork was not as fast has his brain and around corner 2  tripped and went flying into the grass net. I appreciate Ratchet making sure the YHC was ok and for AT screaming “DOWN GOES PAPPY” like the announcer from the Ali/Frazier fight.
  • Station 2
    • Blue had some live music for as we did LBCs, merkins, SSH, flutter kicks and others the YHC can not remember. He played mostly classic rock, but had a special ukulele tune (Yesterday by the Beatles)  for Sparky.  It was cool to see Montross take over for a set and play a little AC/DC.
  • Station 3
    • In this station, we had a parachute sprints and squats on the other end.  We started out strong but this one beat us down on the second set and we were too slow to get the parachute to deploy.

We mosey’d back to the tennis court lot and there was Pizza Man working like the true HIM his is.


We spoke of raising our children in the way of the Bible.  Proverbs 22:6 “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”  Pizza Man joined us and his words were truly felt.
