A DriveBy Homecoming

21 Pax decided to #getbetterbebetter at the historic #Brickpile, which draws its name from the remnants of the original Dreher High School, established in the 1940s between the suburbs of Melrose Heights/Oak Lawn and Heathwood. While #historyiscool and I could go on, I’ll spare the lesson. This was a sort of homecoming for YHC; however, as he has been posting to #Ramble and #Thunder more frequently because of early morning 2.0s needs. It was great to see so many people missed from the other postings. Of course, YHC invited them to enjoy further First and Second F by posting to #Dawnstrike on Saturdays and not sleep their day away . . .

Conditions: 75, clear but humid, just enough thatch here and there with some sand thrown in were the grass refuses to grow where old houses once stood near the tennis courts.


The Thang:

Mosey around the school from the parking lot heading east. Circle the school and buzz the #Score pax making the most of a Gypsy-led beatdown. Bad move on the Q as YHC, despite keeping the group pretty tight lost a few on the six, who went a little farther, down Adger. They were in good hands, however, as the AOQ was in their midst showing good leadership. #Cobains on my oversight. Never leave a man or men.
