WalkerStrong at Graveyard

All mornings in the gloom are great but some are just more special than others. Today, we welcomed back to the gloom our brother Nail Pop. If you’re reading this, you know why Andy has been absent. His son Walker has been in hospitals in Columbia, Memphis and now Atlanta fighting for his life. Walker has proven to be a tough little man. He’s #WalkerStrong. The pax and friends are now #TeamWalkerStrong.

44 faithful including 2 FNGs entered the gloom on this special day. We had a few things planned to honor the occasion. Floppy Disk graciously asked Nail Pop to plant the ShovelFlag. Ranger and Crypt did a drive-by, joining Graveyard for our COP. We asked Nail Pop to lead the pax for Imperial Walkers x 61, 1 for each day Walker has been in the hospital.

There was also a sweat-inducing beatdown.

It was a great morning.
