I thought I would have something more profound after 44 years but I don’t. Thanks to F3, Thanks to The HIMs who showed up this morning.


Dear Heavenly Father


Thank You for this day; 

Thank You for these men, 

Thank you for the freedom to choose the Daily Red Pill and those who help us to be better at this life

those who model, those who encourage and those who build up 


Help us to take all that we have gained here In The Gloom and give it up for your glory. 


Help us to use it to be better Fathers, Husbands, Friends and Neighbors.


In your Son’s Holy name we pray!



Naked Man Moleskin

I have always loved Christmas music and would listen to it most of the year if I could.  However my wife is more practical so we made an agreement many years ago that I would not start the music until my birthday.

So every year on October 5 the Christmas tunes start in my house.  So to celebrate the season I shared a selection of Christmas Tune with my brothers while we moseyed around DT.
