Either way, I think little Timmy is a winner! Great take and he certainly "got some air" on that one! :O)

Great response to the prompt! As a child during field days, my high jumps were not very high and my broad jumps not so broad!

I think this young man might want to consider a career in professional dancing, he is oh so graceful.
