  • Beautiful morning to celebrate our freedoms among F3 brothers. Very happy to introduce a few more WEAG brothers to F3. Thomas Lord’s favorite hobby is making sweet love to his wife – welcome TROJAN! Tim Hughes (age 59) plays keys for his band – welcome PIANO MAN! And Vik Karunakar sings for the same band and enjoys watching Cricket – welcome JIMINY CRICKET! YHC thought the Chumbaburpee warmerama was a fun way to get things started, and will be considering some other songs for future Q’s. Keep posting fellas!

  1. As always, it’s my honor to attend and lead such a fine group of men. Announcements below:
    – FLATLINE’s M’s grandmother passed away – please keep his family in your prayers
    – Welcome FNG’s – Tim Hughes (Piano Man), Thomas Lord (Trojan), Vik Karunaker (Jiminy Cricket)
    – DON DRAPER’s VQ next Thur (4/18) at the Forge!!!

  2. Great Q (and Great AO!), DTH. Chumbawumba was a lot more fun when it was a drinking song and not a burpees song – and also it was the late 90’s and I was pushing 20 instead of 40 – but great pull nonetheless.

    Welcome to the FNG’s – Trojan, Piano Man, and Jiminy Cricket – ya’ll crushed it out there. Hope to see you back out soon.

  3. Enjoyed being back at The Forge this morning…another great Q DTH!

    Awesome to see three FNGs…welcome Trojan, Piano Man, and Jiminy Cricket. Keep posting!
