Always 70 and Sunny

Our Days Are Numbered


Eight mighty men looked into the eye of mortality, and chose the hard way. While 27 degrees in the gloom would normally evict the cheer of men, these hearty souls radiated 70 and sunny, rays of light and love piercing the darkness. What follows outlines a reasonable method for submitting the flesh to supernatural remediation, a proven tactic for seizing the day:


COP #1:

  • Short mosey down the parking lot and circle up (keeping close for possible FNG’s)
  • Welcome & F3 Disclaimer
  • Rapid fire variable Warmerama IC

Mosey down and back a couple parking lanes, with variable caraoke, high knees, butt kickers, and closing with an uphill sprint to the school wall. Complete x10 reps of “Hoedowns” (seated in people’s chair, slap ankles then wall above head IC), then x10 Hip Slappers IC in BTTW position. 

COP #2:

  • Mosey down to Handicap Rails
  • Partner up to complete x3 sets of:
  • x10 Jerkins each
  • x10 Cliffhanger Merkins each
  • x10 Dips each
  • Lt Dans OYO for the SIX

COP #3:

  • Mosey up to 2nd Lot Grassy Hill
  • x5 Burpees at the Bottom
  • Bearcrawl to the top
  • x5 Heels-to-Heaven
  • Run back down
  • x5 Rounds total 

COP #4:

  • Mosey to Amphitheater for a DORA:
  • Moving partner performs the TOOTH FAIRY up the stairs then Crab Walk down amphitheater steps back to partner performing:
  • x100 WWII
  • x200 Squats
  • x300 SSH’s

Mosey BTTF for a few remaining minutes of stretching and Mary.

  • The first Forge of 2021 followed in the path of expected Forge excellent and was well attended – special appreciation to Hardywood making the long track from God’s country, Draper accepting the headlock, and thanks to Fresh Prince to break from his all-night Call of Duty vigil, to give us an even 8 PAX, perfect for the planned partner routines. The rest of you were equally appreciated and special. The highlight of the morning (at least for YHC) was being entertained by a barrage of Hardywood’s repertoire of jokes. Ask him sometime about the Pickle Slicer – good stuff. Thanks for permitting me to lead gentlemen – let us decide to make EVERY DAY count. Get out there today and stealthily serve someone’s needs without being asked or expecting anything in return. SYITG, YHC, DTH
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."  Psalm 90:12 | Psalm 90 12, Psalms, Wisdom

  1. DRY JANUARY – it’s never too late to join something honorable! If you are not already on the wagon, please prayerfully consider taking the rest of January to give up booze (and if you’re really going big, to sacrifice whatever other pleasure you typically hunger for), and day after day in the ensuing moments of self-denial, turn your focus to Faith. This exercise in the 3rd F is painful, and temptation will abound, but what aspect of F3 isn’t growing strength from sacrifice? The rewards will amaze you.

  2. Great Q today and a great message of our days are numbered. It also reminds me of another joke about a nun, an eel and a clam with bad breath. It will be a good one for the family reunion, ask me later.
