Pincer Movement


Seven hounds and one she-hound sallied forth (get it?) in a “you go that way, we’ll go this way” pincer movement for today’s edition of Sunday Funday.  The Historical Marker on the T. T. Pottersfield Bridge tells the story thusly:

First hound (TYA) set off early, headed clockwise on the North Bank trail, trying to smoke out the foxes.  Hound Two (Saab) headed out at 7 a.m. following the same path, again trying to flush the foxes into the open.  Hounds 3-8 (Shakedown, Lab Rat, Bootleg, Offshore, Sally, and YHC) took the reverse loop with the expectation of meeting in the middle to bag the lot.

Frankly, YHC was surprised by the number of foxy runners on the trails today.  The parking lot was about half full at 7, a sign of at least the promise of clear skies and (maybe?) better temps.  Little do so many people know that it’s always sunny and 70.

One hour plus later, Hounds 3-8 had put in 7 miles, with TYA’s tally unknown (10?) and Saab at a full 10.  Well done by 2 and 4 legged hounds alike.

Number-a-ma, Name-a-rama, YHC took us out.


Keep Lab Rat’s dad front-and-center in your thoughts this week…going through a rough patch.


Modest chatter on the trails today.  Some discussion of roadside tools for assessing THC levels and a few other topics.  Frankly, YHC lost the group just after crossing from Belle Isle.  Others will have to fill in the blanks.

Good time at ET’s today.  As usual, TYA shared his forward thinking about women’s exercise attire.  F3RVA continues to develop only the finest of suggestions for female outerwear.

  1. TYA was definitely in for 10, although his repeated assistance to a semi-disoriented female runner may have slowed his pace a bit.

    Knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t have declined that last invitation I received to a “lipstick rainbow party.”

  2. Shakes and I kept the chatter going for the full run. If anybody had a quiet run and needs the rundown on topics such as Bill Burr’s take on Invisalign or Brian Regan’s take on little league baseball, or the best line from Amy Schumer’s movies…well just run with one of us.
