At this point I believe is where Shade Tree let us in on a little secret: It is ok to express one’s opinion to another human, no matter how negatively it may be received, as long as (this is the important part) you close it with “Bless your heart”... This is what is now known as the “STM” (Shade Tree Method). Insert many examples for the STM here and let me know how you made out… Or “sign me” if you are no longer able to speak…..
150 merkins combined alternating with running to oak tree and back.
100 Bench Presses with block combined alternating with running to oak tree and back.

Mosey to back wall of school. When you dip we dip we dip….
Alternate with partner run to short black retaining wall of playground. First run do 20, second run 15, third run 10, fourth run 5 dips. Partner does People’s Chair and talks smack with others while partner runs to playground to do dips.
Mosey to COT. One last exercise I am calling the Ruffinator in honor of a buddy (more like the inch worm). Stand up straight and feet do not move. Bend down touch your toes, slowly “inch worm” with hands and extend into merkin position; do one merkin and inch worm back to feet and stand up straight. Did 5 times and work out was completed.
Then the “Double Work Crew” was born… Silver Bullet, Pondo, and FroYo head over to dig. And fill. And dig some more, and refill with Mr. Steve Lounsberry who is building an outdoor classroom platform for MES. Many thanks to neighborhood friends Mr. Lounsberry for the construction and Mr. Sean Branham who donated the materials for this project through his company.
