The BackBlast:

YHC offered my 2nd annual 12 Days Of Pain On The Pier…Part 1 of of our holiday celebration workout in The Burg. I’ll Q the first ever Over The River And Through The Woods as Part 2 next Wednesday.

KOTTER: We welcomed back Grand Canyon as a 2 month Kotter due lingering illness (you can guess what hit him and his family hard). So glad to see you up and running! Well at least doing a great job holding done the 6 as he regains his fitness. We still have several pax on different kinds of IR so hope we will have a pax of Kotters soon . Talking to you Tagalong and Freestyle!

OIR OWN MISFIT (temporarily): Had some great cheer shared during coffeteria…then we discovered something tragic! Train had never heard of Yukon Cornelius, Hermie The Dentist Elf, Abominable and The Yellow Snow and the Island of Misfit Toys. Well… we couldn’t leave this man behind in a staple of holiday cheer. We tried to share our kiddie enthusiasm of Rudolph The Redone Reindeer movie, but nothing like the real thing. YHC sent him the hole movie and Train its expected to watch it with his bride. Accountability will be had!

COT: Countarama, Namearama, Prayers and Announcements. Prayers for healing friends, marriages, new pax that don’t know yet they are coming, First ever SLT meeting for ALL pax is 1/11/2022 at Cage Brewing (6:30). No excuses will be accepted…we must prepare our fields for the rain! 4 “I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit” (Leviticus 26:4)

As always, blessed to have onsite coffeteria with great Honduran coffee brewed and brought by El Capitan. He leads a Honduran ministry, with coffee farm business and it’s “fruit” harvested and sold with sole purpose to raise support for a caring home for abandoned, abused, and orphaned children. Great coffee and great cause…get yours today! 

Always a blessing to lead fine misfits into the heat of the holiday battle.
