Olympic fever!

We're back in TO house sitting for a friend, and dog sitting too.  Chuck and Jazz are basically doing OK, though Chuck is afraid of Jazz, a Jack Russel with LOTS of character!

I am getting to finally see a bit of the Olympics which is great.  I do love the games.  We were at dinner with some folks last week and they were pointing out a lot of the financial controversies that are swirling around these games (and probably most of them), but I have to say that I love the games, I really do adore them.  So nice to get to watch them a bit.

OMG!  I didn't know this before this minute, but there are NO women in canoe racing in the Olympics!  HOW can that have happened????  There are women in boxing, and no women in canoe?  What are they thinking?????

On another note, while I am enjoying all the running, I am really looking forward to some walking again.....REALLY.  We're going to be getting on the boat in a while (oh, how I am looking forward to THAT) and I am hoping to get some hiking, and running and swimming in!

Here's the question we keep looking at, to bring the bike to BCN or no?  Buy one there????

We too have become Olympic obsessed. I am even going down to Hyde Park to see the Open air swimming and then going down to see the marathon on Sunday. You don't need a ticket but it will be crowded.
Men can't do rhythmic gymnastics or sychronized swimming so not everything is open to everyone. Right going to watch women's boxing final
