Enjoyed my first Q at #Crypt, thanks for making me feel welcome.  The PAX is always great at this plush AO.  I really like that extra 15 minutes, too, that’s an extra cup of coffee at home.  Again, a tip of the hat to Subprime as he is the one who introduced me to AMRAP. I have taken that and created my own personal paradox of sorts.

FNG – Bland Wilkerson, went to Newberry, played a little golf, works at BB&T.  Ty Webb..Newberry College…Newberry…Newberry Opera House…”Pavarotti”!!
