PAX (14): Avis, Caffey, FannyPack, Groundhog, Lefty, Lil Hurt, MillerTime, No-See-Um, Pinkey, Red Ryder (D Mack), Shazam, Special K, uga
Never been a fan of Halloween. I shared that this morning to much dismay, but let me prove my case:
Miller Time dressed up as a drag queen named Party Time? I knew there was something bubbling up inside this man....it's OK MT, let it out.
No-See-Um dressed up as a health inspector with sunglasses and a work & church inappropriate patch on his hat. Health inspector, really?
The rest of the men are level-headed and didn't play dress-up at 0530. So let's get to work.
Mosey over to the pool parking lot for the following:
Stay put for The Thang.
My son came up with 'Goblin' as a 6-letter word for our suicides on the parking lot islands. Didn't have to dig too deep to spell that out from the exicon, so here's what we did:
That didn't take long (did it Caffey?) so we ran it backwards NILBOG, which spells nothing, see stupid holiday.
The Thang #2
I pulled out a deck of death. No Fanny Pack, I didn't steal it from you...they made more than one of these along the way.
Normal Deck of Death rules (10 + #s, 25 Face Cards, 100 Aces, and Dealer Choice for Jokers), but with a small twist...trick or treat, style.
Red cards are treats - do the exercise but with normal deck rules
Black cards are tricks - do double the normal deck rules
We picked a lot of black for some reason. Guess someone should have shuffled the deck after opening it the night before?
We had a few extra minutes so we did some Mary by the flag until time.
Prayers for continued health for Groundhog's daughter.
Payers for NSU's son's heart procedure.
Prayers that people don't make bad life choices on Halloween in their neighborhood.
Treats for the 2 goobers that dressed up to day, but then I took pity on the rest of them so they could keep their hand warm and beer cold this evening.
Been absent for a few weeks with travel, minor injuries, and just lots of crazy work stuff happening. Was good to be pushed to show up today and great to get back into the swing of things, even if it's a stupid holiday. There, I said it again!
Until next time!
