Blogging Blahs... Dolphin Jockey

Do something exciting with your life!Just saying...

This was a great Thanksgiving weekend, and I'm back in the saddle as far as lending goes, but I've got the blogging blahs.

I went to the internet for inspiration, and decided that it's time for a new venture in my life.  A new hobby.  A new avocation.

I'm going to take up the sport of dolphin racing.  It looks like I'll need minimal gear, and once I find the right dolphin, I'll be set.

Underwater Training
The hardest part is going to be the next step after what you see in the photo--the underwater part.

But hey!  I live in a house that's underwater, so I figure that I have nearly three years experience.  (I'm going to put that on my resume for the application to the Association of Dolphin Jockeys.)

Stick around.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

Very funny, Mike!  I wonder how the payout is in dolphin racing?  Cheer up my friend, we all hit these roadblocks every now and then.

I have to agree Mike, the worst thing about a few days off is returning...

Hi Mike - I'd really like to watch some dolphin racing - which beach in Tucson will you be training at?

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) about 9 years ago

Me too!  I wanna know where the track is and when your next race will be, uh, swum?

Should be a very interesting sport. How long can you hold your breath.

Good luck and success.

I'm working on that...  :)


I'm thinking that this might be just the thing to bump up some real estate interest in Rocky Point.  What do you think?


I'm thinking that a training camp along the banks of the Santa Cruz river might be just the thing.


I'm working on it.  :(


Sally Cheeseman just hit us with a Holiday Card contest, and I think that will get me going again.  :)


I'm thanking Him!  Thanks for the encouragement.


Will do!

Christiansen Team,

Good deal.  I like making people laugh.



Sally & David,

But if I stick to the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortez) I won't have to worry about the cold.  Now if I can keep from drowning... :)

Thanks for stopping by and getting me off the dime.  I haven't been blogging enough lately.

I think pretty much all of Arizona is underwater.


You'll need a logo to go along with it...  :)
