  • Continue to pray for Fiji’s dad.
  • Pray for Stones as he deals with his ailments.
  • Pray for Rehab as he is going through some employment issues due to displacements. Has 2 interviews this week.
  • PRAY for WALKER at Noon. Set your alarms to pray at noon everyday till Walker is home and well. Tip of the hat to Neckbrace for that idea.  Link to Caring Bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/walkerphillips.  Lets also pray for Walker’s parents, Karie and Andy (Nail Pop), their strength to date through this has been amazing to me. Get your Walker Strong shirt. See me if you want one and I will get the message out.
  • White Knoll workout is still in the works. TCLAPS to the guys who are working so hard on getting over all the hurdles on  this AO.
  • Big VQ at Strut this Thursday as Slim Jim takes the lead. No one I know of better exemplifies all the F’s than Slim Jim so lets show up and support him.
  • Happy Hour Thursday at British Bulldog at 5:30, come one, come all.
  • Chernobyl has a Cannondale 6 he is selling. Great bike and he is willing to make a deal.
