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.

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.
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.
