Head not quite above water line yet...

OMG (oh my g-willickers) Tac's not even close to catching up on Paradise related issues along with general household stuff, so race report is still pending. Here's a few pictures Iron Tac loves.



If you look close Trimama is giving Tac a kiss after stripping him...oh yeaah, it's business time!



Sopinator running along side Tac, second loop near Mt. Horeb



Iron Taconite Boy (which is sorta redundant, were going to need to figure that one out) and the awesome Tribe!

Congrats on the awesome day!

As for the name, maybe IronBoy, or TaconiteMan, or just plain old Ironman.

Taconite Boy and Greyhound arrive at the power station just in the nick of time.

TB: Hold it right there, 101-Man! Your plot is foiled. You'll be coming with me, now.

101-Man: Oh you think so, do you? Say hello to my little friend!

Evil Bonk Man: Hello, TB!

EMB shines his evil ray at Taconite Boy, wilting him under his red cape. Looking at his trusty sidekick Greyhound, he whispers: use your special powers...

Greyhound: wilco, TB...deep breath, "Ad Infinitum by the first party according to Attorney-client privilege places the burden of proof, ie, cavaet emptor and holds you in contempt of court..."

TB: it's working, he's losing it..

Sure enough, Greyhound's lawer speak was breaking Evil Bonk Man's grip on TB...

Taconite Boy rushes the Evil Bonk Man and crushes him with a single blow. 101-Man runs away screaming like a little girl. From Canada.

Greyhound: Hurry TB, we've a race to finish.

TB: Thanks Greyhound, you've saved me and millions, no billions of our faithful followers will forever remember this day as...

Greyhound: Just get running, Tac...

TB: Right!

Good job Tac. I knew you would do great. Of course now 1 is not enough and you both have to do one now together.

I'm glad it took me a while to get here or I would have missed Bigun's excellent installment of the Adventures of TaconiteMan!


Congratulations again and again.

Look - here's your sweet daughter running out to meet you in the finishers chute
