I like this plan too. But honestly, Gus being a part of it terrifies me.  :P

When does the 2018 Grogheads Members Swimsuit Calender come out? I wore plaid just for that.

I'm just glad you wore something for it.  That's more some of our members could claim.

Plaid??? Why was I not consulted! a few well placed board games here and there, would surely have represented the grogs much better  ^-^

I think Sir Slash is confusing the "Flab of GrogHeads" calendar with the pug holiday cards he created for his family and friends.

An easy mistake to make.
