Lesson for the day: Keep things simple in your life. Do not make things more complicated than they are. Best way to do this? Love- be quick to forgive, be easy to forgive and put others above yourself.

THA-THANG:
Form two lines and mosey to amphitheater. Assemble at the stage and partner up.  Routine of 12s: Each partner does one merkin at the bottom of the stairs, runs to the top of the stairs and perform 11 WWII sit ups.  One partner holds the others ankles then flapjack.  Return to the bottom of the stairs, increasing merkins by one rep each time at the bottom and decreasing WWII sit ups at the top each time.

Jackrabbits perform merkins and planks on stage waiting for the 6 to finish.

Change of command ceremony with Steam handing off command to Abort.

Form back into lines, mosey toward lawn of WFP (after investigating the two dummies handcuffed to the rails). Assemble on the sidewalk at the southside of the lawn.  Next routine is Route 66 – start with 1 rep of named exercise, run to the next light pole along the sidewalk and increase rep count by until reaching 11 reps at the top of the hill at the entrance to world’s fair park.

First iteration of Route 66 with 8 count bodybuilders.  This got a few poopy faces among the PAX.  Jackrabbits return to the start of the routine for ab work while waiting for the rest of the PAX to dodge the SWAT team on the way back down.

Recover and 10 count.  Second iteration of Route 66 with jump squats.  This seemed like a better idea until about the fifth or sixth light pole.  Recover to the start point of the routine, form two lines and return to start point of AO for Mary.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Charles Plumb flew 75 combat missions over Vietnam before being hit with a surface to air missile.  Even though he was flying too low and too fast, he survived but was captured and remained a POW for six years.  Years after returning home, he was sitting in an airport and a man came up to him who knew his name and that he flew missions off the USS Kitty Hawk.  Colonel Plumb, kind of amazed, asked the man how he knew that.  The man had been the one to pack his parachute the day he was shot down.

Always remember who is packing your parachute, those that do things for you that you may not think about that end up being huge in your life.
MOLESKIN:
Continue praying for Sam and Brandt.
