Foto Friday ~ T.G.I.F.

Goodbye Tyson! I don't know about you, but I was sooo glad to see Tyson get voted *ahem* blindsided off of Survivor last night. I hope Coach goes next. He is way too much of a nut for me. What's up with all this warrior and dragon slayin' crap?? Geez loueez! And the story about being captured on the Amazon? Yeah, whatever, Coach. You don't have my vote.

OK! On to Foto Friday. John, my 7th grader competed in the pole vault at his junior high track meet yesterday. He cleared 7 ft. I'm not sure if these were the pics from that jump, but they were some of the better ones of him jumping. He did not clear the next level of 7'6", but the team took first place.




Foto up! Comment so I have your blog addy and I'll get you linked. {Sorry for the delay, I was out mowing, getting ready for next weeks event: "Run for the Roses"}.
Today's workout: off - but you just never know... RUN ON!

Survior? Is that still on?

Great pictures!

I completely agree with you about Survivor. I am sick of coach, but I almost peed my pants when he said "Victory is mine" last night at the end of one of his manifestos.
