It’s been awhile since I’ve posted or Q’d at the Thicket. And I was a big fan of the days when we had that glorious cinder block pile hidden in the woods. So as I was thinking about where I could find some blocks to use for today it occurred to me that I could just go out and buy them. So these cinder blocks are officially a gift from me to the Thicket. F3 has done so much for me that it’s the least I could do to return the favor.
