Gunner, email me if you’re ever going through Raleigh/RTP

Because "viriliter age" has to mean something in English, too.

Back again after yet another set of extended airline travel, but this time it was for actual fun!  Went to Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day, traveled all over the southern half of the country - Dublin, Galway, Cork, Kilkenney, and a ton of little places in between.  Kissed the Blarney Stone, raised enough pints of Guinness to cover the zone block allocation for “awesomeness” for each and every CFer in the world, and generally had a blast.  Photos to come after I get settled in, see what came out well, and get them on a hosting site.  Hope everyone on the board is well, more soon!

Glad to see you’re back. smile

We have too many heroes lost and not enough workout days to commemorate them. I think it’s fitting to always think of the men and women in service, whether military or peace officers and public safety, as we do our workouts. A bit of motivation to throw a little of our sweat and maybe a drop of blood on the floor in their honor.

So hey all, back in the States and settling in for what looks like a longer “sabbatical” between trips to less than nice places.  Enjoying the Indian Summer and having a BLAST teaching some kettlebellish moves to this guy:

Will surf through and get caught up, but for those looking for the Cliff’s Notes version life is good, I’m working out (as soon as vacation ends, of course) hard, and looking forward to getting back into something resembling a routine.  To all who’ve had important occasions pass by that I miss, my apologies/congrats/best wishes/everything else!

Brian,

Great to know your safe.  Take care always….

He was just a man doing a job.  A job whose primary attribute was self-restraint and self-composure, not for his own sake, but for those whom he lead by example.  A job whose objective could be boiled down to the single understatement, as he did at the Hot Gates on the morning he died, of performing the commonplace under uncommonplace conditions.

I need to figure out the “multi-quote” function.  Until then, thanks to all, and personal greetings will be forthcoming when I have some time to sit down and give them the appropriate level of consideration.  It’s VERY good to be back on terra firma for the foreseeable future.

SO….....

Now living in the Beltway, new job, two dogs (in a TINY house witsend  ) and….MARRIED!!  The backyard is slowly transforming to a workable CF training zone, and the dogs enjoy circling whilst I follow Bas Rutten’s directions in my earbuds (minus the “lunches” between rounds, of course).

Hope everyone is doing well!

Gunner, it’s great to hear from you. Would love to see some pics of your backyard box. You’ll have to find some time to take a honeymoon out to Ramona.
