50 Air Squats

El Red Cardo let the way again with Sunshine finishing close behind.

YHC finished in 28:48 after stalking and passing Quaker on our sprint to the finish.

Rousey and Texas Ranger completed with time to spare!

Mozy back to the shovel flag.


Since Rousey brought his boombox YHC found a version of Bring Sally Up to do Merkin Mania.  However this was a techno strobe version from Amazon with long delays in verses.  We survived but I don’t recommend it.

Count-O-Rama – 6
Prayer requests and PRAISE for Veterans and our FREE COUNTRY!

Encouragement to assist Kitten with PitStop Q/Attendance

Emergency Response Training at our church this past Saturday went well.  15 attendees were trained to minister to disaster victims physical and spiritual needs.




Phil 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Thankful to be part of F3! If I hadn’t signed up to Q, YHC would have Fartsacked.  Instead, 6 PAX got better! ISI

Prayer Challenge!

Have you prayed with your M lately?  Handy Manny and I have been doing whetstone together and reading the Circle Maker.  Mark Batterson, the author has a 40 Day Prayer Challenge book.  Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge

There are 40 days from Nov 15 – December 25.  I challenge each of you to pray with me during this time.  If you have a M try to pray with her daily.  You don’t have to use the book.  I think this will be a great way to remain Grateful during the busyness of the Holidays!
