Older men can play basketball, if they are careful. I am practicing some for a challenge basketball game with our new youth pastor to raise money for missions and some needed items for our youth hall. This will be a one-on-one game with sponsors donating money for the fund raiser. We are selling sky boxes for $300 and have sold two thus far. There will be door prizes and lots of humor.

We will have a great pre-game show and the half-time show is a winner. Elvis is doing the half-time show and Johnny Cash is also going to make an appearance. 

Monday afternoon I went to the park near my house for a little workout and some local guys wanted to play a game of 21. It was everyman for himself with the first guy to 21 winning. I started slow but came on strong and won. The young guys were stunned.

Here I am jumping over Michael Jordan's cousin, Mr. T. Notice my high jump shot. My girl friend saw this picture and said Mr. T wasn't jumping. I had emailed the pic to her. I said that you would have had to be there to see that I faked him out before he could jump. HA!

I beat the last youth pastor who had enough courage to play me. That surprised him too. White preachers can jump if they haven't eaten too much chicken and banana pudding.

The challenge game will be in a couple of weeks and will be fun and we'll raise some money to share the Gospel. I plan on beating the young guy like a drum. You might add him to your prayer list. That is a little joke, very little.


  1. So, are you really, really sore today?


  2. Milton,
    Did you run the Gate River Run? I thought a while back you said you were preparing for it.

    I think it's great that you are in such good shape. Keep up the good work.

  3. While I am exercising by walking and jogging and some Bball, I did not get to run the River Run, a 15K run here is Jax. I have done it several times, but my schedule and other issues have hindered me the last couple of years. I hope to do it next year.

  4. Milton!

    Shame on you! ;-) Wanda is your beloved intended--your fiance. NOT your girlfriend!!

    a friend in your corner

  5. I'm sorry. Wanda is my fiance, but she is my girlfriend too. I just love the lady.
