4 Corinthian warriors of the Ancient Gloom volunteered to take up the First Watch, today consisting of Zeus’ perpetual mountain penance, “The Sisyphus.” (Credit: Mr. Holland) With several FW regulars called away on various forms of Family Duty, the PAX set off precisely at 05:00, collectively commenting on the particularly pleasant, precisely sunny and 70, weather conditions.
Mosey 30 yards to South Westham, Ridge, and some other street.

YHC is taking up a collection to buy Handshake’s wife an electric toothbrush.
Ts&Ps for Florence’s MIL and Handshake’s Grandmother. Also, the entire Kubota Residence has been put under one of those 1970s Insect Infestation Nets for Fumigation purposes. YHC assures the PAX that no actual organisms will be harmed in this process; rather, they will be captured humanely and offered sanctuary on the Hardywood Family Farm, where the guineas, chickens, goats, alpacas, and bats will simply consume each organism to the point of its natural death.
NMS: YHC has been itching for several years to attend and/or Q this workout ever since Mr. Holland introduced it at Twin Team. YHC thanks Mr. Holland. Good stuff. Each round brought an additional level of grip-i-tude from the PAX.

UpChuck spits the bit.
Way to work today, fellas. Thanks for letting me lead.
I have always wanted to do this workout at Twin Team but could never make it. Now Upchuck brings it right to my back door and I still can’t make it! Well done! This must be done again at FW and Mr Holland needs to attend as well.
Great job Upchuck. You can disregard all mumblechatter so long as you lead like you did today. Well done.
FWIW, I’ll never brush my teeth at night the same way anymore.
Guessing M Handshake was running out the clock with the brushing teeth rouse.
If my wife says she’s going to brush her teeth, I’m not going to sit down, let alone lay down.
