Got there early to set up the coupons.  Wanted to get as much work in as possible during the 45 minutes.  Saw Handy’s truck all alone.  Nobody took him up on his offer for a running clinic.  25 coupons set up.

Lots of #HIM this am.  Texas Ranger brought a FNG and then some #Kotters appeared too.   Great turnout!

– Once again, a total honor to Q on this holiday honoring our Veterans who have fought and continue to fight for our great country and our freedom to assemble, to worship as we please, to basically enjoy FREEDOM!!!  I didn’t bring this up cause I probably woulda lost it…but today would have been my grandfather’s birthday – I was very close with him, and in his last years, watching him relate stories of his childhood, living through the Depression, and his time in service with my kids, his great-grandkids, are memories I will never forget.  He passed 2 years ago, and my F3 Brothers were there in force supporting me, lifting me up, and praying for me and my family.  He was a WWII Veteran and I personally dedicated today to him.  He fought overseas, taking shrapnel for this country.  He fought alongside men of every religion, every nationality, every background.  As I see the hatred and evil around this country, it really makes me sick.  The Greatest Generation fought for us to be able to do and say as we please and have freedom.   Wouldn’t it be an amazing thing for people to actually HONOR that generation and the rights they have because of those great men and women, and of course, ALL of those that have served this country!  I humbly give all HONOR and RESPECT to those that have served and are currently serving.  THANK YOU!
