the gods of Olympus...

I have been enjoying the Olympics. From the incredible opening ceremonies...(organizing the thousands that participated was mindboggling.) It was all so visually incredible.
The gymnastics, Yeah America! and I cannot imagine running for over 2 hours straight...unreal! And what about the amazing swimming...Yah...that was me, cheering at the television at 12:30 am...

How about that Michael Phelps...! I love when someone has a dream and makes it happen. I love the essence of the Olympics, and I despise the controversies...These athletes work relentlessly and I admire those with medals around their necks, and those without. There is still more to come...and I'll be watching...

...Sports can be painful.

Oh my Gawd! Is that your precious Becca??!! Now, THAT is the Olympic spirit personified! And I do believe that she still has it! You don't need a gold medal to be a winner! Gorgeous girl!

My GF went to high school with Anne Donavan who is the coach for the ladies basketball team. Very small world! It's nice to see local folks win!

OUCH!!! I've always had to sit through the balance beam events with my eyes closed. It defies logic to flip and jump only to land on a 4" wide plank. This week Michael Phelps has caused me to loose more than a few hours sleep, and now I'm hooked on beach volleyball.
Love the photo of Becca, too cute! Time flies.

Yes, the Olympics have been fascinating. In the 8-person boat rowing event, however, I thought the Austrian team did rather poorly. Here's a link to a photo:

This made me chuckle. I wonder what Brigitta would say about it...

By the looks of that picture, I would have fit in just perfectly in the Olympics this year...I'm just about the right age ;)

I must be getting old because I am caught between tears and laughing at the cuteness of her Olympic dreams . Sigh.

My wife and I are watching The Sound Of Music, so I wanted to check your website. You have been in my favorite tv shows and movies. Make room for Daddy was awesome, and all the boys were in love with you in Lost in Space. Gladitor is one of the few movies that comes close to the magic of Sound of Music, just a little less singing.
