CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
All I had to share this morning with the PAX was a quick reminder that as men, people look to us to set the tone, and we need to remember that and set a positive one.  A smile helps spread more smiles.
MOLESKIN:
It was that kind of morning.  As the PAX assembled, Abacus hit the lights and it was apparent that Shooter was still in the #fartsack.   I dug up an oldie-but-a-goodie and then had to tell @Tank #whatsup as he tried to jump in my ‘Q takeover.  😉  He’s on-Q tomorrow anyway…  The PAX didn’t know what to expect, and as @Mayberry pointed out I had to blow the dust off….but we got the work done and I think the PAX missed some of the exercises I brought back out.  #bottomline we kept moving and broke a solid sweat.  Thanks men!

Sparky wasn’t here but we saw him anyway.

THE SCENE: 31 degrees, partly cloudy with a light breeze.
