I got to see an old friend tonight, Jim Cooper. Jim drives the semi truck that hauls the Canadian boats from Florida to the Lake Lanier Olympic Venue for their national team trials this coming weekend.

Jim counseled me by saying that he hopes we never take this place for granted.

Of course, I said - never!

Jim took this picture yesterday evening.
