Friday's Fliers

While cleaning out and throwing away a few things this week (and yes Mark you would be proud of me), I came across a few 'fliers' from the past.....1983 to be exact.

You see, Ron and I owned and operated an aerobics/exercise 'studio' back when pretty well everyone started to jump around and have fun with exercise.

We went into this venture being very 'green' and came out, two years later, being very humbled by the business world. I never worked so hard in my life. But we had a ball doing it! 


  1. you sound like me keeping things....I finally went through and got rid of a ton of stuff...I think I had every kids ever did...I managed to weed through...boy was it hard....

  2. It's fun to look back and remember. I don't know anything about running a business--However spending 4 years as president of the rescue, I think, was as close to running one as I'll ever get. It can be tough when your name is on everything and you're totally accountable for everything. But I wouldn't trade the experience for anything!

    Enjoy your weekend!!

  3. You gave it a go, poured your heart and soul into it and had fun, so much better than "I wish we had......"

  4. I AM proud of you.
    So you ran a Gym, that's great! Love the fliers. Now I want to see some photos. And yes, I know that you have them.
    Your Friend, m.
    p.s. You and Ron can spot me any time. Now you got me thinking about that sauna. m.

  5. Mark, settle down! lol
    Yes there are photos....but for another day!

  6. Great fliers ! Great to have been there and done that and enjoyed the experience !

  7. 80's hmmm ...that would be any aerobics tapes to post for us!

  8. Jim's Gym!

    Like the idea of the sauna most.

  9. Great to be able to step aside and look back sometimes ....


    They are so important!

  10. Can't wait to see the photos!

  11. You probably learned so much during those two years - what an experience!

  12. Just put this comment in and not the last one : ) That can be our secret.

    I LOVE that you had a gym. I bet it was a fantastic place. Small business' are so much work. I keep thinking of starting one for my photography and I just don't know if I can do it.


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
