South High Drag

I don't think I have many followers, and rightfully so, I hardly write at all and then not aimed at a broad audience. But I hope there may be some response to this.

I went with a friend and visited another friend in hospice tonight. One never knows what to expect, but he was alert and shared a lot about his life. He had a couple of questions that he had been saving up for me. One was personal. He said that when he was younger he had gone out with a nice girl named Donna Brimley (not my mom). I had heard her name recently and I think she is one of my dad's cousins, a daughter of Uncle Verne. I asked him if he had attended South High in Salt Lake, which he had. Of course then the obvious question (to one of Jay Brimley's children) was, 'Do you know the South High Drag'. His answer, the perfectly reasonable, 'Why yes, that's the only steps I could do. One, two, three, step.' It all made perfect sense. We always thought that was something our dad made up. I don't think so.

If anyone reads this and knows anyone from SLC, I would sure like to hear anything they know about the South High Drag.
