"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Broken News

Sadly, only 8 members of the team reported for training this morning. We can not be sure what happened to the 9th member. I swear, all 9 were present and accounted for last night. Perhaps there were unknown injuries sustained during yesterday's incident. Perhaps it was just meant to be. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we just can't change Fate's mind. "Fate is not an eagle, it creeps like a rat." - Elizabeth Bowen.

From Mimi:
Would peanuts help make you feel better.....? :)

Dear Mimi,
Peanuts never cease to be a source of comfort. Never.

I heard on a podcast number nine was drafted for special ops duty. Do you really believe there is only one Aflac duck? Try not to feel bad, nature takes care of her own.

Sending peace and comfort.
