The Wall Climber

This video will scare the daylights out of you. It shows a guy who is mountain climber who does not use ropes. Watch him climb a sheer rock wall with his bare hands and shoes. This a National Geographic Video.

Do heights bother you? I have to admit that I don’t like heights, they make me a little dizzy. I don’t see how that guy can do what he does in the video.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Someone said, “Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!” That’s good advice. Some days will be better than others. That’s life!

Joke of the Day

One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle.

Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"

Enjoyed your blog as usual. The climber video was pretty awesome--I always wonder about how the camerman gets there to take such videos as this one.
