“Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” — Benjamin Franklin
It’s Tax Day! The day we all think we won the lottery when we file our returns. The joy of finding out you’re getting a refund!
YHC is out today to remind the PAX that while they worked hard and paid their taxes, their government took more vacation days and fivolously spent that tax money interest-free. Only to repay a small bit of it to us in the form of a “refund.”
13 men showed up for their refunds!
It can be hard to determine the correct amount of money to pay in, how many deductions to take, or how much stretching is allowed during the warm-o-rama. No stretching here.
Mosey around the based on the amphitheater with a quick turn back down the stairs. All the stretching we're going to get.
25 SSH IC
27 Imperial Billies IC (16 Imperial Walkers then 11 Hillbillies)

It's at this point Trust Fall bids an Irish goodbye and bails. Dude has been sick for almost two weeks. Posted (Props) but just isn't back yet.
Work > Taxes > Refund > Death
Such is the sad clown's life. There is no LIFE in such a pattern. Unless you use the pattern to bring forth life from tired men's souls.

Groups of 4. 2 Pax share a Sand Bastard (yes, that is their new name). On GO PAX run till caught by other 2 PAX who just did 10 Merkins.
One group got all the way to the Gazebo and another got all the way to the Back parking lot. Everyone laughed their a**es off!
Prayers for Dizzy's exciting work opportunities. Prayers for Stopwatch's daughter's boyfriend who went to church for the first time in 15 years on Sunday. Prayers PAX who know loved ones battling cancer. Thanks to the LORD that we are able-bodied and choose to get out and suffer together. God is making us great men!
Naked Man Moleskin:
I'm the son of an accountant, and I was born the day after Tax Day. My son is the grandson of an accountant, and he was born the day after Tax Day. I like to think my Dad got some pretty sweet tax refunds. This is a pretty cool time of the year for me.
But I don't like that our current government leaders trivialize our taxes and frivolously spend our money. And then they make us think that it's some great thing that we get a "refund" because we "overpaid."
So, today, we worked really hard, paid our dues and our taxes, and then got "refund" in the form of more of the same exercise. All the while Uncle Sam won! But we were the true Americans today!
