Winners for Champ/Chump contest

I am happy to announce the winners for the previous post about identifying the photo of a champ and the photo of the chump, both of me of course.  See the champ photo here.  I had a third photo where obviously I wasn't going to make it over the bar but I'll spare you that one.  Showing for this ID contest were four people: Linore, Gail, Laurie and Linda Moffitt.  I decided to mail all four wonderful ladies a copy of my In Remembrance of Me book, a religious nonfiction book.
I have recently jumped into the Facebook world and am a novice certainly.

Champ or Chump? Answer for a chance to win In Remembrance of Me

This is a giveaway of my short print book In Remembrance of Me.  My pole vaulting friend, Jack, made a comment while we were in high school.  That was my senior year 60 years ago.  Jack was in one class behind me.  I still laugh about his comment after all these years.  Jack is still living but is in poor health.  He would say about these two photos that I looked like a champ in one and a chump in the other.  To enter the giveaway of my print book you merely identify which photo I look like a champ and the other I look like a chump.  These photos were taken by my roommate in the fall of 1960 at Purdue.  No, I wasn't on Purdue's track team.  This is during a track meet between residence halls.  I tied for first place with three other guys.  The height was ten feet.  Comment between September 7 and September 21.  Yes it took me nine semesters to graduate which took me to January 1961.  The previous post tells of the book.

Lack of posting will change soon

Just a brief note on my lack of posting.  I have no excuse.  I will soon compose a post that will involve a giveaway of my religious self published book In Remembrance of Me.  It is a print version and I've not been pushing it through advertising but I think it is time for me to do so.  I've been selling some to friends and have given away many copies to members of our congregation.  The cover I came up with myself, both front and back.  Actually, I got the front cover from the internet and snapped a photo of a passage for the back cover.
