If you train hard, you’ll not only be hard, you’ll be hard to beat…

-- Herschel Walker

Over the holiday weekend, I had my first GTP* session. It was intense, let me tell you.

There was lifting…


Lots of walking…

The food in the chow hall was okay, but sometimes it just misses the mark…


The agriculture class was exceptional…

There was even an equestrian riding class!…


There was another riding option, but truth be told, some of us are just too pretty …


All in all, it was a great weekend. I learned a lot of great new things. Like, no matter how much I shake them up, I don’t have to clean them up. I learned that we have our own language. For example, when I say wanna cookie?, it really means How about two four cookies before naptime?? Oh, there’s more, but I don’t want to give it away. It’s kind of a secret language, known only to those of us in The Club.

Thanks, Ella, for letting me practice on you and your parents.

So, what did you do over the holiday weekend?
