Breaking Bread (I think Upchuck is taking the Q though he will need a couple more Pax for help)



April 30 and it was 38 degrees in the gloom this morning. When is “Old Man Winter” going to quit?!  YHC kept it simple this morning.  Cones and bricks were in the back of the truck, but were of no use this morning.  Back to the basics it was.  YHC is not sure what happened during the partner work, but we had 10 Pax members working out this morning and during the partner work, 6 were running the horseshoe and 4 were doing Dwight Howards.  I blame it on Monday morning or a long weekend for some or maybe it was YHC’s fault.

YHC forgot to explain the frenzy of WWII’s this morning, but it was to honor YHC’s Grandfather who turned 95 a couple weeks ago.  He is a WWII vet who served on the USS Iowa in the Pacific theater.  We did around 95 WWII’s this morning to honor him and the 20 Dive Bomber’s actually represented the 20 Kamikazes that he witnessed either try to hit or hit the Iowa’s support ships!  None of the Kamikazes tried to hit the Iowa itself, because the Japanese pilots pretty much knew they would not get through the gunfire of the Iowa.  This morning was one of YHC’s ways of honoring his Grandfather whose health has really started to fail since his birthday.

Thanks for coming out this morning and lets continue to pray for our fellow Pax, Pax family members and any unspoken prayers that anyone may need.

See you in the Gloom!
