WHITE MEN CAN JUMP!












Corey and I challenged each other to a dunking contest Saturday and surprised ourselves at how high we could jump. We jumped around like young fools who had just ate jumping bean chili! What incredible “ups” we made, and the intensity of our efforts were very evident on our faces…wow!

Corey has his 3 year-old daughter, Lily, trained right. He had her out mowing the yard while we dribbled around his home court. Heck, he even had her pushing him around on “her” toys!





After she finished the yard, she came over to my place and washed both my vehicles. She’s going to make someone a fine little wife one of these days!

You sky pretty high for a white guy! And with the cap and shades staying on, too! :-)

Michele said...

Yeesss, and then after you were done playing you had to raise the backboard back up to regulation height, right?? *L* Just like a bunch of men, make us womenfolk toil while they play,,,

Okay, so I didn't fool anyone! Pretty cool though...huh?

Jumping pretty good Ol' Timer for a broken ribbed 60 something white boy.

Well, in all fairness, little kids do have cooler toys nowadays than their parents!

Let's try football next! I, myself, would make a grand snap-center: Just hike the ball, stay in one spot, an' make 'em go OVER or AROUND me...!

What a beautiful day. But dude, I could'a sworn it said "drinking contest" there for a sec. Figured that'd explain the increased flexibility.

And I don't know Becky. My toys are pretty cool, and MUCH more dangerous than the ones I used to used to scare the neighbors with back in the 70s. Though, I do miss my old Lawn Darts.

And Bruno, Dude, I land on you and it's back to friggin' traction for ya. Just say no!

No drinking with Corey...he's a tea man!

I'd love to play football with you both - in that magical land.

You do realise she's going to grow up and kick your sorry ass for that "littlen wifey" comment, don't you?

Have you been sipping from the fountain of youth again, my friend? Lovely pics, seems they've captured some magical moments.

Keep it up and lets see what you break next. Ha. I get froggy sometime with my sons, and pay for it laster.

I love this post! We have the truck packed and ready to go to Michael and Anna's new house, and there rests a Basketball Hoop for the garage! I want Arianna to have the joy of playing Horse (or Pig) and pick up b'ball that I had...I played guard for our girls team, and it seems that our darlin' Arianna is going to be tall like her daddy...maybe a guard there, too? Loved this post!!!
