  • We had a solid crew of 10 vets out at Meathead this morning. Thanks to the pax for posting and for following my lead on the workout.
  • My eclectic playlist was a big hit this morning and led to some interesting conversations about musical tastes that almost led to a brawl between the hair band rockers (mostly Frehley’s and Ickey) vs. the grunge fans (me and Mighty Mite). I think we established a hierarchy of bands with Warrant and Poison at the bottom and Foo Fighters, Guns N Roses, and AC/DC at the top. Bullwinkle enjoyed his role as instigator.
  • Aside from his musical tastes and concert experiences that are a little too graphic to share on a family website, Frehley’s was also kind enough to share some pretty powerful flatulence this morning. I was downwind for the first blast and I swear I blacked out for a bit. During Mary, he took the “hollow body” command a little too literally and hollowed himself out further. Thankfully, I missed that batch, but I think Ickey had to bathe with bleach when he got home.
  • It’s late and I’ve got to post in the morning, so I’m going to log off now. Please sound off below with any more commentary.
