“Always try to leave something better than you found it.”

With that in mind, we had 100 merkins to complete.  However, I gave the PAX 2 minutes to gather up trash and return it to the pavilion. For every piece, we subtracted off the total.  We complete 60 Merkins. Nice work.

Prayers for Seatdown, Cousin Eddie, Bing, OTC, and the Lost PAX.

Specific prayers for Drone and Courtney +2.0 and 1.75? Overcoming sickness, worry, fear, and fatigue.

Prayers for LIFO’s MIL, with Parkinson’s and the ebbs and flows of that disease

Prayers for Feud and his family dealing with the loss of the MIL and clearing out the house.  Emotional roller coaster ahead.  Strength for Feud to be there for all.

Don’t be a hog or hoarder for F3.  Bring a friend, enemy, neighbor, stranger.
