Thankful for all that had returned safely from holiday travel, for this nation of ours that’s in need of healing and peace and for opportunities to serve others with the strength with which we’ve been endowed.  Found out that this beatdown was the first of THREE for Brutus, today (Oh, to have the energy level of a 14 year old again!).

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Always an honor to be among and lead such outstanding gentlemen.  Sprocket out.
