Attention: Full Metal Jacket is on Netflix. Much to the chagrin of the Incubator’s Labor Day PAX, yours truly had a chance to watch it last week. And I noticed a certain exercise during the Marines’ basic training: a burpee without a push up. That turns your normal 6-count burpee into a 4-count exercise. I named it the Full Metal Jacket Burpee (FMJB), and I was anxious to incorporate into the COP.

Numberrama, Nameorama, Intentions, COT. Prayers for Abacus’s M, Vincent, and Pope. A family at St. Pat’s is struggling because their son had a very unfortunate accident this week. Other intentions unsaid. Lifted them up, closed with the Our Father in unison.
That’s how you start a Labor Day, fellas. Enjoyed it.
