Captain Thors till we reach 8 BBS and 32 AHs.

In my 49th trip around the Sun, I’m going to try to get out of my comfort zone.  This is difficult for me.  I love being comfortable.  I think about Paul’s exhortation from Philippians 4:13 and the level of discomfort Paul took on.  If God saw Paul through his discomfort, then he’ll surely see through any that I have.  Push on!
I’m proud to share a birthday with High-Heels!  Continued prayers for Cheatsheet’s grandmother and daughter.

Golden Rule: Do to others as you would have them to do to you. (Matthew 7:12)
Golden Result: In general, people will treat you in the same manner that you treat them.

The importance of knowing the Golden Result is it reminds us that in many ways we are creating the world around us.  When it seems like everyone around us is “out to get us” that’s a cue to look inward and reflect on how you are relating to others.  As a HIM we seek to be men of impact, not men of excuses.

Today, be the type of person that changes the relational temperature of the room. Bring grace, humility and love where every you go and see if it is not returned back to you 10 fold.

West Hills Park 2.0

THE SCENE: Everyone was dragging a bit from Turkey Day but the weather was perfect 50’s and sunny




Circled up and ran through the following:

  • SSH
  • Imperial Walkers
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Baby Arm Circles
  • Merkins


  1. Mosey’d down to the open field for a game of Turkey Tag:
    • First game everyone was on their own. You get tagged, you do 10 merkins and hold plank till the last Pax is tagged.
    • Second game we did 2.0s vs 1.0s. They dominated us. There was no chance at survival…
  2. Mosey’d over over to the hill by the tennis courts for a little Dora/Kora- the 2.0’s partnered up and the 1.0’s partnered up for:
    • 100-LBCs
    • 75-Squats (why don’t squats have a silly name??)
    • 50-Merkins
  3. Mosey’d back to the open field by the Volleyball net and played a little game of Retriever- Q punts soccer ball and which ever PAX gets their first gets to call out a workout, to make it fair each Pax can only retrieve once:
    • Gridiron selected SSH x 10
    • Alabama selected Freddy Mercury’s x 10
    • xxx selected Pistons x 20
    • Ninja selected Arms Circles x 20


  • Flutter Kicks
  • Supermans T-W-I


7-2.0s : Gridiron, Cheddar, Flipper, Marshal, Raphael, Ninja and Tumble

5-1.0s: Kentucky, Archie, Tollbridge, FullHouse. Doubtfire made a showing but got distracted by the playground..

2-FNK’s Kentucky’s 2.0s have been appropriately named Tennessee and Alabama

We went around and all in one word told that PAX we were thankful for…examples are family, God, friends, sports, mac & cheese etc..
Post Q we played in FullHouse’s backyard and had a load of fun!
