Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It's another tequila sunrise,this old world
still looks the same
It was a perfect night with great weather, nice floor seats and fun friends. One thing about hanging out with ridge people outside the ridge is they are fun. It's not hard to see why we end up at a place like the Ridge. We tend to love the good things in life....maybe a little too much for our own good. Many props to Betsey for joining in the festivities. Not just the concert but also as the 3rd place finisher in our June Fitness challenge. I finished second although you'd never know it looking at these pictures as my face likes kind of fat. I'm going to blame it on the sun, or the angle or too much of the next picture. Congrats to Lisa for winning our first fitness challenge racking up an impressive 153 points to win by over 20 points. It was so much fun that we will be doing another one starting July 5th. This time there is a team aspect to it as the Boys will be taking on the Girls. Congrats to Brandi, Claire and Eric for competing as well. If you are interested in competing in the next challenge just drop me a note on facebook.
Some other things that have been going on: my monday night volleyball team won th 10 team double elimination tournament last week. Had to overcome a loss in the first championship match but rallied to win the second and take home the title. I had a very funny moment when the clerk at Walgreens asked me if I had been on TV lately. Was very glad I was buying some cards and Drano and not Ruffles and Snickers. He was very nice and said Congratulations. The World Cup has consumed more of my time than I would have liked. I have really enjoyed watching the games and think the whole event has been mesmerizing. I'm glad there are only a few games left. I have thrown my rooting to the Dutch Orange as the USA have been eliminated.
Happy Birthday to Jacky here being serenaded by the wait staff at Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise. I can't believe that June is over and July is starting. Summer goes just too fast. I am heading to Chicago tomorrow afternoon to see a show that I just learned of yesterday. Sara Bareilles is playing a breat cancer fundraising show at Hard Rock in Chicago. I made a reservation for two at the restaurant as soon as I found out, although I'm 99% sure I will be going by myself. I just couldn't bring myself to admit to the hostess at the restaurant that I was such a loser I was coming by myself. But I wouldn't miss it for sure. So if you are in Chicago July 1st and want to see the fabulous Sara live...give me a call. Hope all's well with you guys. Peace, Jim
