CIRCLE OF TRUST:  Counterama, Namerama, Word of the Day (WOTD): Veterans Park represents the Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors that have served their country.  Most didn’t have the luxury of smart devices, video games, or even TV while in a war zone.  Often a Deck Of Cards provided all the entertainment they would have.  I see parents using all the great entertainment devices we have now to distract their children so they will behave while out at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  I’ve even seen this in a church.  Drop the crutch and engage get your children to engage in a simpler form of entertainment (Maybe a game of Fish)….
BALL OF MAN: As the Thunderstorms started to move in we lifted to God our prayers for healing and protection to those family members of our F3 Family.


All I can say with regards to the Moleskin….DuckTales, something got inside of you and died!  You about caused us to discontinue warm-ups and go for some kind of breathing machine!!! No more Sushi for you….At least without GAS-X!!!


F3 – Hacksaw for Day 6 of the Q-Gauntlet, also Scenic City Ruckers meeting at 0500 Blue Grass Grill.  Don’t forget to register for the Fallen 5 Challenge.
