18 PAX were in attendance. It was 41* degrees and clear (don’t @ me…read below). This is officially day 10 of the 12 Days of Pothole. Disclaimer: This is all really hard and you should go home right now.
In celebration of Whitney’s new 2.0 (who we’ve preemptively named: New Edition) and for other things and people that the PAX wish to recognize, we will do one extra rep.
When I was in the Marines, we always did one extra push-up for Chesty Puller. If you don’t know who that is, first of all, shame on you, second of all, Google and read up.
For Depot, we’ll do that extra rep for someone or something that the PAX calls out. Each PAX counted off and we went in order. At the end of each exercise, and before recovering, I commanded, “…and one more rep for…” (AOMRF) at which time the first PAX would call out who or what the extra rep represented.

Continue to remember the Haigler family, Slim Jim, and other unspoken needs.
Isaiah 60:1“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” Ephesians 2:4-5 “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.” Colossians 3:10“Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”
Whitney is celebrating the birth of new life with his M. During this time, it’s good to reflect on the different ways that God gives us new life.
We get to enjoy new life through birth. Either our own children, a family member, or a friend. The creation of life is a gift from God.
At some point in our lives, we gave our spiritual life over to God. We put away the old, and accepted the new. And God breathed new life into us. The Bible says we are reborn. The rebirth of our spirits is a gift from God.
We are sinners by nature. Even though we give our lives over to God and are reborn, we always find a way to mess things up. Thankfully, through Jesus, we’re able to come to God and repent. And again, God breathes new life into us. Redemption is a gift from God.
As we celebrate new life; whether it’s the birth of a child, the rebirth of our souls, or the redemption of God’s love, let’s remember that these are all gifts that God has given us.
*Temperature. There was some contention this morning regarding the temperature. Some said it was 34 degrees. My weather app said it was 41 degrees. “But my truck said it was 34 degrees!”
Your truck is wrong!!
Your truck doesn’t have a thermometer – it has a thermistor. Your thermistor gages the temperature that radiates from surfaces around it. Like your bumper or the road. This is why your car reads that the temperature is 117 degrees when you know damn well it’s only 95. I would believe my phone app before your “truck thermometer” (which is actually a thermistor).
The temperature was 41 degrees as reported by weather.gov. NOT 34.
