    Great workout, @Buckwheat. Just when I thought about staying in the fartsack, this is exactly what I needed.

    Thanks for a great beatdown Buckwheat. Winter’s over – no more excuses about getting wet or cold. Buckwheat Q wherever you want to Q – no limits – you are a great Q – rain, mud, wet grass, puddles, haunted day care – no more mumble chatter questions – I can handle it and so can my washing machine!

    Buckwheat great beat down – always fun to play frogger w/ Cinders across that street…you look hard core
    – but you buckled like a cheap lawn chair when mighty maximus complained about getting his stylish and slimming outfit wet… so perhaps really a softy underneath… or respecting our respect ho can knockout 90 yes 90 merkins!
    Maximus Merkins should be his new name!

    I remember when Pharaoh destroyed the merkins during the Airforce PFT. I asked him how he was able to do so many and he said, “you get stronger with age.” The Respects are definitely proving that to be true!

    @Dutch – thank you for the ongoing compliments on my attire. I’d be happy to advise where I got the gear if you’d like. You can wear it both at workouts and perhaps at the firepit with your M some romantic evening when your 2.0’s are out of the house. It could accentuate her previous compliments on your pudge is gone and your increased endurance! Who knows what will happen??
