Ye Olde Moleskine:
Great effort by the pax.  We started with 25, but Bugeater was late arriving to the launch lot and thought we were down at Carmel Middle, so he showed up at some point during Swiper’s Q…Last In by a long shot brother but glad you made it.
Love Bug was his patented First Out self out, but was getting after it as is his custom along with One Eye and others.
Only damage/fallout from this morning was a barrage of crop-dusting going on during all segments of the beatdown.  The one during the last session of Mary was particulary unsavory.  Have mercy!
Random #’s to some of the exercises were not random, rather, the 18 counts were in tribute to celebrating my 18th anniversary with my bride yesterday.  And the 13 counts – standard # for a Hops-Q’d workout.  Several reasons for that # – ask me and I’ll elaborate.
Always enjoy the pax at DMZ.  T-claps to all you guys for posting.  Keep EH’ing your friends, neighbors and co-workers.
1-year Anniversary of The Charge this Wednesday.  Double D on Q, of course.
Also, bring an FNG to The Charge, and Baracus will donate a pair of shoes to #SoleRedemption.
#SoleRedemption – going until Nov. 22nd.  Flutie Flakes is Shoe Q for DMZ.  Bring the shoes men.
2nd annual USMC tribute workout this Saturday at Mustang (Myers Park HS) @ 0700.  Post.
Probably forgetting something – but a check of Twitter, and actual conversations with the pax should bring some more items to your attention.

I can understand a virgin Q wanting to split a 45 minute work-out but Swiper and Hops? Were you guys feeling alright this am? Too cold for one Q?

I Took a sad clown stroll doing a Carmel MS there and back. Hey got some warm up and was glad to reunite with the pack. Smelled like a pack too. Swiper, great to see you outside of our smelly BRR van but you quickly reminded why being outside of a van was a good thing. Great Q’s boys!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
