Olympic fever

Do you have Olympic fever?  We sure do -- we just love to watch the games!
This was the fare at our house on the night of the opening ceremonies: fish and chips, and...
some spirits to get us into the spirit!
I stopped by the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to pick up some T shirts for my family, but...
the quality was lacking for the price, so, I skipped that.  Made in China, with couture prices -- I'm just sayin'. (Boo!)  Above, the clock that counts down to the opening of the games -- it was 8 days away as you can see.
I'm a huge fan of this man, Michael Phelps, as well as all his team mates, and the US gymnasts.  I love all the games, but definitely enjoy watching the swimmers most of all.
I would sure LOVE to have been able to visit London for the games!  How about you?  What do you enjoy about the Olympics?

Hi Laurie,

Here at V-B Towers, we are well into the Olympic spirit as is most of the UK. Its absolutely wonderful to see the beautiful Olympic Park and all the venues are stunning. We went to the canoe slalom yesterday, which was exciting though our GB paddler didnt make it through to the final. We are off to see the sailing down at Weymouth on Sunday too.

My particular favourite is the equestrian events - mainly the show jumping and we got a team Silver yesterday! Also like archery, rowing and the high diving. Enjoy your olympics!

We had a great day watching the sailing at Weymouth. Next we're off to London as we were lucky enough to get tickets for swimming at the end of this week. You guys must be so proud of the mighty Mr Phelps! M x
