I read jack arnow saying that at the age of 84 jasper still perform one arm chin and that was three years ago. What a great guy.

OK Methodman! Loved That! I have a new idol!

The only two other guys who could pull that off (in my knowledge) was John Shoaf and me. John and I grew up tothether, and competed hotly on the rope thing. We were inspired by the Springfield College gymnasts who used to compete in rope climbing. We could beat 'em all, and actually challenged the world record on a few occasions.

John went on to become one of the (VERY) few Masters of Fitness in the USMC.

Y'all know where I went! Ugh!
