Today YHC is glorying in tribulations – a true feet of mental fortitude given that he was presented with an entire herd of male donkeys (“the Herd”) to shepherd through the gloom this morning.  The incessant indications of displeasure with the morning’s events from the Herd has led YHC to devote extra time in prayer for each of the Herd member’s families in what must be a real struggle having to deal such fussitude every day under the same roof.  YHC trudged through the beatdown remembering the old Burkian adage that “it is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.”

Homer’s Donut races; the Herd did mary exercises while 2 Herd members at a time raced in bear crawl around the parking lot landscaping island.  Betting on racing was encouraged.

Jimbo got a CFO job in his hometown of Tallahassee and will be moving soon.  We lift Jimbo up and wish him all the best.  His big heart and quick wit will be deeply missed in the gloom.  Going away drinks date and time TBD.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It was dark this morning in the gloom and the Herd members unruly.  But YHC remains standing and his headlamp still alight fighting to impart some manor of gentlemanliness on this motley crew.  He glories in tribulations.
