I just leaned back in my chair and felt something rub my neck. Monkey is sprawled out over the back of the chair, legs on the front and back and her head hanging over the edge, fast asleep. I didn't even feel her jump up! Violet is curled up at my feet. Nothing like a family gathering!

And of course figure skating has spawned such classic movies such as, Ice Castles, The Cutting Edge and Blades of Glory!

I love pigs too, PF. My favorite is a stuffed animal that "walks" then stops and wiggles it's curly tail and grunts. LOL

I also have a fridge pig. You put it in the refrigerator and every time you open the door it grunts. Supposed to make you stop eating. Yeah, right!

There are many other events that are chosen for Olympic competition that seem a little out of place. I guess my idea of an Olympic "sport" is one that is competitive. Neighborhood kids will have races over "I'm faster than you" - "nuh huh" and brothers and sisters have wrestled for millennium, but not too many kids say "I can do a better triple-axle than you" on the neighborhood ice pond. Hockey yes, but not figure skating. And don't get me started on Rhythm Dancing! I guess they have to be creative with the Modern Olympics though. I suppose there wasn't a lot of ice and snow when the ancient games were going on.
There is a difference between Team Sports and Individual Sports. That seems to me, what you folks are getting down to in your Olympic Games Competition. There is plenty of competition on ice that does not Involve teams. Nobody denounces the runners, high jumpers, shot puters in the Summer Games, I also don't hear anything negative about the folks who choose Cross Country Skiing.

Those are all Individual sports, people putting forth their best effort...on their own. Personally, I don't think Team Sports have any place in the Olympics, it should only be the Individual sports.

I have the walking one, too! Not the fridge one, I would have to buy too many batteries for it.

We just got back from a concert. I wasn't sure all week if I would be up to going and even this morning I wasn't feeling great. But I had a nap and was ready to go on time to pock TB up from work.

I stayed in my seat most of the time while others stood and danced, but thankfully we had really good seats and there was no one in front of us.

Now to try and settle mind and body down so I can sleep. Good night all.
