YHC saw that Kessel was open so why not? At the appointed time and place the Pax set off for the destination of Treaty Oak Park. We used a mosey-like fashion. Any beatdown that presents an opportunity for Pud to say “Hello Ladies!!” is just bonus. Today was a bonus day! The Thang We started […]

7 healthy Pax and one slightly injured Q showed up for a hot and humid Saturday morning stroll in the park.  A burpee twisted back kept the Q from participating in some exercises (most) but the Pax was very accommodating. The Q misremembered his speaker so the pax was burdened with the grunting and groaning […]
