Monday mornings have an element of excitement.  They kick off the week and although it means the weekend is over, there is much anticipation of responsibilities and adulting.  Wednesdays are celebrated as hump day.  Some celebrate different than others.  Thursdays have that beginning of the weekend feel.  Fridays are just plain awesome.  I mean, you get to wear jeans at work.  What about Tuesdays???  Well, they’re meant to be weird.

24 men came out to welcome YHC back to the grind and the gloom after a week at the beach.  They expected me to be the hunted, but alas!  YHC has the Q so I will do the hunting (while gasping for breath).  My theme this morning is “Anchorman”.  It’s a book I’m reading now (should be done before the next eclipse).  It’s nothing like the movie.  More on that later…. now here’s what went down:

Mission and Disclaimer:  No signs of rust.  No FNGs, however I did manage a screaming EH at my friend who walks the campus in the mornings.   I wasn’t being rude.  I’m wearing him down… I can tell.

Prayers

  • Lift @Sammy up for continued progress on recovery.
  • Ford Swinney ongoing health issues.

Moleskin:

  • I think we took up every single parking space today.  The numbers at #Pitchfork are impressive.  I blame @Whisper‘s forceful and sometimes abrasive leadership.  Good luck filling those shoes, @MintJulep!
  • The look on @Copacabana‘s face when he was introduced to his first YHC costume Q was priceless.  I thought he was going to leave for a second there.
  • Maktahrs were the #CrowdPleaser.  I know this because most of you were spectators.
  • Great to have @PineTar‘s 2.0, @Lionheart, out there this morning.  I’m glad I wasn’t next to her.  I felt bad enough as it was.
  • As always, I’m looking for any ideas to be a better Q.  If you have any suggestions, please click here.
  • Back to the Anchorman book I’m reading leisurely and mentioned in BOM.  Fewer and fewer families have Anchormen these days.   Steve Farrar discusses the impact of a father that roots his family in the truths of the Bible as well as the devastating effects of a father that does not.  The effort we make with our children and the example of a Christian marriage not only affects the next generation, but at least two following generations.  The further a family goes without that Anchorman, the further they will drift.

Thanks for being models of Anchormen, gents!  I love you all.  #OprahBomb
