It’s on at Gideon.  The men here at Gideon’s House opened their home to 40 PAX at 5:15 in the morning to prove once again the best coffeeteria in the Upstate lives on Pendleton Street.

Others should probably be given the Holiday benefit of the doubt but more likely avoided Santa’s sack like…

Oh Come Ol’ Ye Moleskin

  • Great turnout this morning (especially with the weather) for the first convergence at my favorite AO.  I think the PAX at Gideon’s felt the extent of the brotherhood the rest of us enjoy more frequently.
  • Thanks to @Flay and @Bondo for the work in the kitchen.  Food was out of sight.  Thanks to @Spongebob, @Cheney, and @Caviar for their help setting everything up as well.
  • Blame the warm up on @Caviar.  That was a tradition started by him a few weeks back.
  • We thought we were duped by @Zoila once again until he and his Ace’s Wild crew triumphantly charged in during the LBCs.  In your defense, your warm up started a good bit before ours.
  • Sorry about the gas chamber.  I was worried we wouldn’t get our merkins in.
  • @Latka, thanks for having a liner in your swim trunks.  Yes, I was looking.
  • I’ve realized I need to get out more.  My goal (stolen from @ATM) is to Visit every AO in 2016… twice.  I also plan on Qing as many as will have me.
  • Speaking of @ATM, I usually ask him to lead us out in prayer.  He didn’t disappoint again.

Thanks again for coming out.  See you in the gloom.
