In his sporadic viewing of the ceremony surrounding the farewell to George H.W. Bush, YHC was touched by the words of George W. Bush. His father had lived a truly monumental life, but what seemed to resonate most with W. was something well within the grasp of us all — H.W.’s devotion to his wife, Barbara. Catalyzed by W.’s words, YHC shamelessly borrowed this morning from one of the wisest of the Badlanders (Bags, Air), who a few weeks ago beseached us to shower our brides with flowers. YHC put a different twist on that theme today, imploring the Pax to do something for their wives today — a chore, a favor, what have you; just something that will be unexpected and met with delight. Go forth and delight, Badlanders!
* Michael Phelps (so not in cadence)
* Progressive Arm Circles (small to big, big to small — something of a cadence)
* Side Planks (again, somewhat candential in nature)
* Merkins (serious cadence)
Nice little block party, incorporating Outhouse’s cinder blocks, with the fun and games including manmakers, tricep merkins, burpee block jumps, Full Monty’s gastro-intestinal fireworks, someone (Zamboni?!) throwing up in their mouth (not enough for a sidewalk splash), lots of recovery jogs, lots of mary, some good squat thrusts (and by good I mean sucky), and glute-firing goblet squats. Nice walk back to the flag with the coupons, with the indefatigable Bada Bing shoulder-pressing that increasingly-heavy bleeping cinder block the whole way. Namaste, Bada!

Prayers for Captain Gab and other needs unmentioned. Always a pleasure to serve as Q for a truly great group of guys. YHC… out!
