Naked Moleskin:

  • We have started a new pre-workout activity. Those who show up before Lite Brite (which is usually everybody) throw a few footballs around the parking lot. Not sure if we are loosening up some muscles or threaten to pul some, but it has been a welcome pre-activity.
  • Cougar took us for too much running at AG yesterday, so I did back off my wheel house for the afternoon. Did some shorter versions such as the newly introduced circlesides. Did not hear any complaints from Money since he prefers minimal mileage. Happy to accommodate my Triple Respect friend.
  • While I had a couple of options for the last round of pain, Lite Brite (who aptly named the Birdscalator) would have been wanky if I did not go there. Happy to accommodate you too my friend.
  • I did try some new things (circlesides and carousel were two) but seemed to get a few chuckles on Running with Scissors. Thanks to the Dash (F3 Winston-Salem….get it?) for showing me this last week. I am up there quite a bit and post 2 or so times each week with the Dash brethren.


1) Carrier again leading a great and expanding effort in rounding up turkeys (no….not you guys)  for the Charlotte Rescue Mission. Still seeking funds in $10 increments to support the cause, but he states we are well above last year’s 500. And other organizations have picked up steam and will crest 3,000 food baskets this year. Impressive lead by Carrier for F3 impact and impressive effort by the community to step up for families in need. See @#F3Carrier for details on giving.

2) Turkey Day Metro convergence at AG at 7:00 Thursday.Come lose a few before gaining a few.

Prayers: Ditka asked for prayers for his sister (breast cancer) and brother in-law (kidney cancer). Sister seems to be doing well; brother in-law was recently diagnosed but prognosis with surgery seems very good. But pray for full healing.

Bird Hole out. Aye!
