Olympics

I am watching the Olympics. Who can resist the thrill of Lindsey Vonn winning a gold medal? I remember when Bode Miller didn't win any medals in Torino and now he hs trained and pushed his limit and he's winning gold as well. Another favorite of mine is Apollo Ohno. Wow! What an athlete.

Last night when I watched ice dancing, I swooned. Foxtrot Freddie and I have taken ballroom dancing lessons for 15 years off and on. Granted we're 40 years older than most of these athletes. However, we can't do half of the moves on dry land these ahtletes do on ice...with skates...going who knows how fast!

One of my all time ice dancing winners were Torvill and Dean in 1984, to the music of Bolero. They received a perfect score, a rare accomplishment.
