I imagine many US Veterans have woken up on rainy days in the dark and had to go stand a post. Feeling uber thankful on my birthday…thankful for faith, family, health…thankful for F3 and my F3 brothers…and thankful to be an American and for all of those who have served and fought for this great country.


There are things in life that we cannot control…all we can do is focus on what we can control. The rain pushed us to the Sports Park pavilion…but we pushed ourselves out of bed. Let’s go. Mosey from the pavilion to grab PlumbBob & do some SSH, WeedPickers, Hillbillies, Windmills, Arm Circles & Covids. Grab a coupon and meet back at the Pavilion.

The Thang:

You know DJ Walkie Talkie still had a playlist planned of some of his favorite tunes so let’s do this…

Naked-Man Moleskin:

So much to be thankful for, Gents.
Feeling like a hero but I can’t fly.┬áNo, you’ll never crash if you don’t tryTook it to the edge, now I know why.┬áNever gonna live if you’re too scared to die
Gonna disconnect from the hardwire. Time to raise the flag for the cease fireStaring down the hole inside me. Looking in the mirror. Making peace with the enemy
Hey-hey-ey-ey-ey.┬áI’m so alive, I’m so alive, I’m so alive (Hey)You can make it on a wish if you want to!
