Hootenannys around the Park


11 redwoods met in the gloom looking to see a post St Pats Gomer Pyle trainwreck and found themselves sadly disappointed by a solid beatdown. According to the 3 barred owls presiding over Byrd Park, here is how it went down, more or less.

Glad Pigskin got half a workout in before heading to the airport and Mississippi. Glad Fudd found us eventually after his Flipper inspired run; admittedly we dont use VITA very often. Good to see Faceplant back out after the baby. Welcome back to Senor Frog – hope you got what you are looking for. We know Handshake got what he was looking for – but that was before the beatdown.

Great coffeeteria afterwards: we learned about cougars and sabertooth tigers and Rosie knows where the 60/40 bars are (maybe thats not surprising)

Today we have 3 owls supervising the beatdown and we all know thats a hootenanny. YHC doesn’t really know why, but owls are uber cool despite their hatred of Saab. Maybe because they live in the night / gloom like a Light Infantryman? Just like Grunts, they are up and moving before BMNT (0622 today, thanks to DST).
