15 PAX with no FNG’s.  Taser jumped all in for 2nd helpings this morning, welcome back and great work.


TAP’s went out this morning to Locksmith, his family and most important his father, JackRabbit’s BIL diagnosed with prostate cancer and Weedwacker who jumped in with both feet and is a proud “HomeOwner” now, good luck brother.


YHC has been introduce to “The Daily Stoic” recently and I anxiously await my morning reading. I also discovered that at least 2 of our BOTG are avid followers of Marcus Aurelius and Seneca (Lep and Shots) I enjoy hearing their thoughts on the Stoics (hope I used that correctly). Anyway, although the topics are generally pointed towards the end of life, the readings have given me new insight and verification on how I want to live my life NOW. Todays reading goes something like this> Marcus Aurelius found this piece of advice from an opposing philosophical school important enough to jot it down to himself. It’s worth considering today and practical enough to incorporate into your life immediately: “This advice from Epicurean writings: To think continually of one of the men of old who lived a virtuous life.”  For you perhaps that person is your father, grandfather (or grandmother). Maybe it’s one of the historical figures, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, whoever it is, keep them in your mind as a model. Keep them there as an inspiration and a kind of guardrail (What would ______ think about what I’m about to do?). Let them guide you, prod you, and comfort you.
