YHC celebrated my 3rd F3 birthday with 10 of Cape Fear’s finest and in order to celebrate my new age , I decided to play some of my favorite New Wave music from the 80’s. Some subtle subliminal and sublime messaging in the music and lyrics . Armchair psychoanalysts have at it .
Here’s who joined the birthday party.
Pax : Sparky. (r) , Ralph (r), Moab (r),pony express ,rx,stifler,tom sawyer (r) , mr T, flight nurse, BG (r)
QIC: Niles (r)

Just Can’t Get Enough- Depeche Mode
Beautiful World -Devo
Tears of a Clown – English Beat
Planet Claire – B52’s
King of Pain- The Police
Message of Love – The Pretenders
Love My Way – Psychedelic Furs
Once in a Lifetime- Talking Heads
Love Action – The Human League
Cool for Cats – Squeeze

Purple Rain- Prince and the Revolution
60 minutes of of the best decade in music , oh yeah.
Many complaints, as usual , at the outset from BG about my musical stylings. Undeterred, YHC pressed on. The Pax had another challenge- YHC brought out a randomly selected category for the Punderdrome . Today’s theme was colleges.
Busted Grill : what’s the road to the smartest college in America – Tu- Lane
Tom Sawyer : what college can you get straight A’s and still strike out – Bowling Green
There were other entries but my memory fails . Feel free to amend if you came up with one.
The thang :
Long mosey around Alderman.
Elevens w assorted merkins alternating with jump squats.
4 Laps around the school running in opposite directions with a partner . Meet at the boom box after each lap for hand slap merkins and sumo squats .
Mosey to pull-up bars for pull-ups , then
Broad jump burpees across the basketball court and balls to the school wall .
Mosey to Venus fly trap park for incline and decline merkins and step ups. Lunge walk in single column back to the flag listening to Purple Rain . Jail break at the stop sign to the Silverfox flag .
Approximately 3.35 miles and 3.35 puns . All in all , a great 3rd birthday.
Strong showing at Panera for coffeteria except for Flight Nurse who apparently got a better offer . 👏🏽 ok then.
The Creperie was closed for Christmas vacation much to our disappointment. I’m sure it’s a well deserved vacation for CrepeFace – we look forward to mangez chez vous.
