So YHC had a birthday and got deeper into the DR decade! So what? That happens. Time to move forward. We’ll get old later. So on a high 20s clear morning (aka perfect) we got with it. This is how it went down:


Arm stretches

SSH X 20

IW X 20

Cotton Pickers X 20

Grapevine Stretches

Nolan Ryans X 20

Mtn. Climbers X 20

Mosey over to the Gazebo.

10 burpees – Lap @ the Town Green.

20 Big Boys – Lap @ Town Green

30 CDDs – Lap @ Town Green.

Mosey over to the Goat Island parking lot as the park was closed due to flood damage. Lunge walk across each bridge.

Inclined Merkins X 10

Dips X 10

Inclined sit ups X 10

Run a parking lot lap!

Rinse and repeat above, 15X each, run another lap.

Back to the gazebo, Lt. Dans across the bridges.

40 Merkins – Lap

50 squats – Lap

60 SSH – Lap

Mosey to the flag and some final stretches and a pledge


Great cold morning and a great way to start the 7th decade on the Big Ball! That seems crazy to say or conceive of for that matter. Even got a birthday present! A quart of Buttermilk! How about that! I’m good with it. Real good in fact.

In all seriousness 61 for me is a big deal. My dad died at age 61. I was 31. So essentially I have lived half my life without him here with me. I loved my dad. But he had the opportunity to be great. And he didn’t quite get there. Lots of self inflicted wounds. Tears me up when I think of it because he really was solid in a lot of areas. But he lacked a mature faith and it hurt him. How about we learn from mistakes and get better form them which is my thing here. So to me it’s about finishing some big jobs this year and getting others opened up and moving. On a lot of fronts.

Great group to celebrate with. Let’s go lead from the front and make things happen men!
