11 PAX + 1 FNG – Speed Trap – Welcome! EH’d by our DR Brother Whisper, grateful! Beta calls PAX out for no recent EHs – Beta had the name called up front, the Popo was out again, when Beta caught Speed Trap gassing it! The name has been bestowed. Again welcome brother! And always welcome from DR Whisper and Mr. Delicious! Visit us soon!
Beta brought out the early news about the California shooting! TAPs for the friends and family of the lost as always, but Beta made the point about giving TAPs to the shooter, for not finding fellow men, like our PAX, to help get our minds and spirits right and bring what is good in all of us to not only those around us, but to ourself. Very poignant sentiment, so let’s never give up, help the Sad Clowns. I reiterated Dugger and Fireball’s sentiments about compassion and dignity we should show our fellow human beings, Leading by example. As the Tour has dictated, Haggis (AO QIC) took us out, reiterating the sentiments laid out and reminding us why we see each other In the Gloom, and how it has made us better men!
Day 4, back at my home the Hogg. From the time I make the disclamer, till the hour or so after getting to work (walking the kids to school in between), had made these 4 days worth it. The energy, the creativity, it just flows and the PAX make it delightful to share. Two more to go, as I lay down soon, I will get to the AO (The General tomorrow), and regarless of the weather, I will enjoy the few hours in the morning that has made this journey worth it! CSAUP FOREVER!
Also shout out to Whisper, especially showing up strong EH’ing Speed Trap, and Mr. Delicious, reminds us how the PAX, regardless from where they are from or come from, we all look in the same direction!
