The Geese were Pootin


A dozen at Gridiron today. Huge quantities of Canadian Geese were pootin which required some selective changes in the location of some of our exercises. It was great to see 12 people today.

You have to be impressed with the courage of the Ukrainians, and admire their President, Zelensky: “I need ammunition, ‘not a ride’.” I offer my thoughts and prayers for Ukraine and those (Lighthouse) that have family there.
