Here We Go Again

"Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true your a pal and a confidant.
And if you through a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend."
Andrew Gold

Just a short little wrap up. I leave Sunday heading west. I'm happy the weather will be much nicer for this trip west, I am in much better shape, had a wonderful summer and am I excited to be heading back. We were first in two of our volleyball leagues and second :( in the other.
I will make every effort to update the blog much more frequently when I am back at the ridge. I should be in Vegas from Wednesday through Sunday and report to Utah on Sunday August 24th.
A couple of thanks I need to pass on. Thanks to my summer workout partner and friend Karen for the generous use of her facility and constant pushing me through circuit after seemingly unending circuit, and the recent addition to our workout team Tanya. Thanks to all my Volleyball teammates and friends at Club Tavern who made Monday and Wednesday nights my favorite times of the week. Thanks....Jenny, Jenn, Becca, Tanya, Lori, Karen, Luke, Zach, Tim, Alex, Rich, Dan, Tony, MBArk, Moose and Kay. Thanks to my wonderful staff who are constantly make us the friendliest store in town. Thanks to my old teacher and renewed friend Paul. Thanks to all the people that get a little joy out of reading this dribble :) and thanks to all the ridgers and future ridgers who have kept in touch or gotten in touch because they have read this blog. And of course Thanks to my wonderful, loving wife who once again will keep my life together while I am out dancing in the Utah desert. Her generosity with her time and heart and acceptance of my friends and non stop pursuit of volleyball and music this summer has been appreciated more than I could ever put into words.
I hope everyone has a fabulous remainder of their summer. Please do not hesitate to call me, email me, leave comments, ask questions, or come visit St George, Utah. I'll miss all you guys!! Peace and Love, Jim

Hey Jim! Good luck at the Ridge! Kick some butt, and seriously... if you have a chance, take the spinning class. It is killer for the calorie burn.

Hello Jim.
I am just sitting around watching other people work out ( Olympics) . Phelbs just got his 7th gold.....
I wish you all the best at the Ridge. Please keep all of us updated as to how things are with the expansion of this great facility.

Safe travels Jim and as the old song goes, "I'll see you in September!"

Hi Jim! Best of luck back at the Ridge! Each time you see that stupid stop sign, remember the journey it took to get there.
Also, when you see your friend on the trail, keep smiling!


P.S. Tell Demeree I said hi!
