I see your true colours ...

They say that everyone needs to find their passion -- to "follow their bliss."

Well, Jonathan's passion is "Yellow-Blue-Red." He discovered this amazing apparatus (which I think is more accurately called a "drop shot" or a "three-point unit") at the local schoolyard about four years ago; and now it is one of the great joys of his life.  I think Jonathan truly would do Yellow-Blue-Red all day, every day if he could.  In fact, a couple of years ago when Google Earth photographed his school, there was Jonathan in the background of the picture!

So in an era when the word "sport" conjures up images of Lance Armstrong looking up "cheat" in the dictionary ("lookin' for loopholes," to quote W.C. Fields?), I thought it would be fun to share a few photos of Jonathan engaging in his favourite sport:  one in which there is no cheating and no winning or losing, just lots of fresh air, exercise, turn-taking, and smiles.

(with friend Ray:  hey, purple will do in a pinch)

(with Susie and Allison -- because everything's better with friends and family, right?)

(serious fun)


  1. That is absolutely wonderful, Jeannie. Jonathan looks like a real pro at the game!


    P.S. My wife would always pick the purple version over any other color.

    1. Allison too I'm sure. But Jonathan's a bit of a purist and prefers the primary colours.
