Jim Ulery and I once had a date.  Lots of fun - as Jim was always upbeat and witty.  We went in his father's car, which was a big 4 door.  When he parked in my driveway upon our return, he got out his driver's side, opened that back door, walked thru the back seat area to reach the other side of the car, and then opened my door!

Jim .. How can we forget ole Jim? 

He was my little buddy. Not only for all the years in High School, but all the years until he passed away.  Jim was always there with tons of energy and some crazy plan. 

For years I would come back to Tempe during Christmas and Jim had either a New Years Eve Party planned or tickets to the Fiesta bowl for me.  Jim came to Texas a few times to visit and always was interested in how I was doing.  It was Jim that got me started in golf, and he took the time to help me try to hit the damn little white ball. What a guy.

We started in the early years working on our bikes, then we went to cars, and then we built the topless rod that we took to school. We joined the Accelerators Hot Rod Club and put on a dance to raise money.  Does anybody remember Wayne Newton  playing at our dance.. years before he made it big in Vegas.

We did river float trips, mountain climbing, diving in the lakes and water skiing on the canals. Not many things keep us apart both of us went into the Air Force to serve our country. Jim worked hard and played hard.  He was a true American and loved our Country I really miss Jim and his goofy self.

One year when my parents went to Washington on vacation my brother John and I stayed with the Ulery's for a week.  We did not want to miss our Little League games that week.  While my parents were gone, the three of us went to the barber shop and got mohawk haircuts--you should have seen the look on our parents faces when they got back!   We told them that Jimmy put us up to it.
