Poor coach

I was never able to climb that rope when I was a kid in gym class. I was more like the kid with his finger up his nose. My coach use to have this expression all the time. I felt for the guy... He was also my driver's ed teacher, I think he had a death wish.

I couldn't climb the rope either. You did a great job on showing what really goes on in gym class. (I did rope climbing too.)

Wonderful illustration. Your characters are awesome. You might like the movie Mr. Woodcock if you haven't seen it already. In case you have little ones...it has a lot of foul language in it.

Hey Ray,
Thanks for all your help, my granddaughter came over and tried to help me, I still haven't been able to get through, it says my file is to large, does that mean the thumbnail or the picture itself? Thanks again
