– Prayers for Darth Visor’s future grandbaby.
– For Mufasa’s family friend who passed away back in South Africa


– I thought an old woman was going to sic her dogs on the PAX, but I think the sight of Crack running through the park in the gloom would just about frighten anyone.
– Grits needs the shovel flag or he’s not coming.
– Great work by Trojan posting on his 15th birthday.  He’s still the War Baby and it’s not even close.
– Missed Darth Visor’s mumble chatter on this humid morning.
– It’s amazing how hard it is to run with a rock.  Makes me realize what it’s like to gain an extra 10,15, or 40 pounds.  This is the Rubicon though, and there’s no going back to the Pogo 40!
