PAX: Abacus, Jolly Rancher, Dauber, Plumb Bob(Q) Weather: Mid 40s, partly cloudy, light wind Pleasantville is probably my favorite place to Q.

Calling all PAX and AO’s for a wonderful 3rdF opportunity. I met with St. John Center recently and with the winter coming they are in need of white crew socks for their members.

My return to the Q at Pleasantville was a tough one to plan. I don’t mind the rain, but I don’t necessarily like standing in it and one of the best features of this site, the amphitheater steps, was sure to be sloppy. Conditions weren’t so bad when I woke up, but that quickly changedContinue reading “BB Wisteria at Pleasantville 4/19/19”

There’s an old saying, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.” The past few days have been down right weird weather-wise. From seasonably warm weather to the Polar Vortex, followed by great golfing weather, back to cold, back to warm with storms and now back to below freezing withContinue reading “2/8/19 Pleasantville Back Blast”
The last two days you had the choice to get wet and get better or stay in bed and stay the same. Tomorrow it’s going to be dry but cold, but not Polar Vortex cold.

I had the day off work yesterday and decided that we needed something fresh for the weinke today and i have never really looked at the Exicon much. So after an hour or so of sorting 700+ options (it’s a really good resource) I had what I thought was a pretty solid workout. Now, beingContinue reading “Back Blast Norton Commons BO 10/12/18 Zima-Q; Opposites Attract”
It’s good to be back in the gloom! It looks like temps are dipping into the 40’s tomorrow, but no microflexing allowed here. Your Q is going deep into the Exicon for some new weinke-makers to keep the pax warm, but twenty-five pax is critical to my plan so get there. SYITG.
