 The Thang:

Prayer Requests

  • Schnitzel’s neck:  having surgery this week
  • Captain Crunch’s sister diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Prayer for all injured Pax to heal


  • Pick your spot on the ground for big boys very carefully:  you never know where there will be angry red ant hills
  • Great push today in muggy, bog-like conditions.
  • Mumblechatter reached fever pitch after calling for 20 quick Verkins at the very end but, hey, we had 20 seconds to kill.

Even after a terrible night of sleep (yes, even Sleep Guys have occasional insomnia), it was a pleasure to lead 19 men who defeated the fartsack.  Prayers to those who need it but don’t ask.

Ambien out.
