Airing of Grievances 



Festivus arrived two days early at BlackCat. Coming around the corner to the parking area, YHC thought it was a Festivus miracle but turned out to be a bunch of women. No one knows where they came from or what they were doing at the hallowed BlackCat AO.  Several selfies were taken – stay tuned to Instagram to see if the pictures show up online. Mumblechatter abounds around the Festivus pole including recounting an eventful arrest, speculation surrounding public urination, and much more that shouldn’t be put into print…. Got a little quieter for feats of strength as each turn at the farmer carries got exponentially more difficult. The suck factor for Mary with blocks was high, especially for gas pumps. Airing of grievances got a little excitable as any good Festivus celebration is supposed to. Piper out for the next couple of weeks so the women probably won’t make it back until then out of sheer disappointment. C64A8181-787F-4989-A199-A0634A573B3F
