speaking of equestrian events, it's just so sad what happened to the horses of the polish water polo team.


(i know it's old, but i only get to use that one every 4 years, same as the one about the mexican summer olympic team)

Bronze Medals Gymnastics

Unfortunately, Japan who was wonderful, had a mishap ...

Yes, when we can ...

Off to have a wine and quick bite, and a walk to feed the kit kats and stray dogs, with our leftovers and some dog food and cat food ...

GOOD HEARTS.

Have wonderful summer Laurie,
Margi.

dave has brought it to my attention that people might be offended by a lame, old polish (not the furniture sealant) joke.

i apologize. polish americans are fine, hard working, and notoriously honest people.

I am waiting for the equestrian jumping to start. Zara Phillips stands and excellent chance of winning the gold for England. I would love to see her grandmother present a medal to her. Yesterday she had a perfect cross country round and came in under the 10:03 time limit with no penalties. Her horse lost a shoe during her ride. But she just kept going. You just have to cheer for someone like that. Her horse is one of the least experienced.

I'm just in awe of those perfectly-formed humans, male or female, standing on a diving platform, balancing on their toes, facing backward, no less, not moving a muscle. IMO they could stop right there for Amazing Human Feats. Then to see them shove themselves off into thin air and twist and turn like a feather (a very fast feather), enter the water headfirst with almost no splash, and kick their way to the surface. Two at a time! Just Amazing! The gymnasts are unreal, too. Wow.

I loved seeing the shooter rack up 99 out of 100 as she won another medal. Wow again.

I'm not sure why, but I'm having a hard time getting excited about the olympics. We've watched a few events, swimming mostly as that's what's on unless you stay up until 4:00AM. Just no excitement this time.

I've seen a lot of injuries, a lot of out of bounds and lots of lack of concentration. Nothing has been amazing so for.
