Sign up for GrowRuck is going strong.  Already up to 10 or so…in addition to our crew, Charlotte, Hampton Roads, Pittsburgh, and other areas are representing.  See HoneyDo for more.


The horn section was out in full force this morning.  The PAX hit all the notes – high, low, long, short, maybe even a few sharps and flats.  Where’s Mr. Holland when the PAX needed him?

Theme for the day…male leadership, specifically for fathers.  8 years ago tomorrow, our family lost my father.  86 years young.  Veteran of the Great Depression, WWII, the Cold War, and more.  Thanks, Dad, for being willing to share your time, talents, and values each day.

  2. Nice Q Upchuck, nice way to honor a great man. Between bear crawl, monkey humpers, and hello dollies hardest part of workout was avoiding Keymaster backblast zone at all times.
