For 45 years I have trained with my lifelong friend, Don Curry. Don retired last year as a lieutenant in the Houston Police Department. Today I met a great guy, Dan Cassidy, a career fireman. The plan is to juggle schedules and vault together. He will be 56 on Saturday and has the same passion we all share.
I met Dan today at Tesoro High School near Mission Viejo. Beautiful place built in 2001, the year I left Southern California. We had Santa Ana winds so that was a big headwind. It really didn't matter to me since I brought the pole bag with my bigger poles. Shows you how long it's been since I've jumped. Bad wind, wrong pole bag? Is that a message? I think so. I did a few easy swing ups on my smallest pole and called it a day. I had some flares but nothing different than my first day back last time so I'm not concerned.
Gotta run but here's a song that's been in my head by Rush, "Something for Nothing". Have a great day and thanks for being here! Bubba
