After a week in sunny coastal Georgia, YHC was back for his first post-vacation post. Kotters to Epoxy and YHC(although not sure if we qualify, but I know we missed the gloom). Weeks earlier I had answered Man Ram’s call to Q Crucible. Nothing could be finer. I stepped out of the house into a thick waft of summer air reminiscent of a sauna, and ventured north. Epoxy and I waxed poetic about New Mexico’s incessant UNC-bashing during the on-going inter-PAX Twitter cut-down fight and waited with Mr Rogers for the rest of the PAX. No FNGs this morning, and we were off.

And that was that. A thorough beat down was had by all.

Prayers for Seasoned Salt, as his daughters are both going in for open heart surgery this week. Please keep their family in your thoughts and prayers. Prayers also for one of Cherie Berie’s employees who was injured on the job last week. Very very strong words from Electrolux this morning. I’m glad that he has the PAX in his corner and I’m honored to know him. Man Ram took us out with some of the strongest words I’ve heard in a long time. Thanks for allowing me the honor of leading you men this morning.
