14 vets decided to make Tuesday a better day. They did so in a quiet, vigorous fashion –  read: “some of our normal pax full of mumble chatter were not present”. The chatter that was mildly overheard was highly intellectual and historical – YHC felt left out. It’s okay, we were there to exercise and that’s what we did. YHC decided today was a day to focus on those less fortunate, those neglected. Our Back’s and our Tri’s. While Monday is usually reserved for International Chest Day, #fenceliners like to add a little balance to those egomaniacs. Each who posted were guaranteed to leave hungry (for toast, perhaps) and with some toasted upper body muscles! YHC was glad to serve this “need”

As noted, pax were quiet, with little movement standing around the flag. YHC as he gave an introduction, disclaimer etc he encouraged the men to shake a leg, something.
