Mainly sun today not that it mattered i spent most of the time in the Velodrome and at the Boat racing, tonight was again special even though the medals were not going our way.
My Daughter in California said she is disgusted with American TV, they are only showing American winners and medal ceremonies, I told her they never did like to see others doing a proper job of things.
Just found out they have had heavy rain and flooding around Newcastle again, the same places as last time, I feel so sorry for them.
Well Posh, your Andy got his medals without my help, I was busy pushing Clancy around the Cycle track, hard work at my time of life.
My first Olympics took part whilst I was up to my ears in sand, I knew nothing of it, the next was radio and newspapers then B&W TV but we did have one of the first colour TV's and that made the Olympics special and they have been ever since, that's is when I was home to see them.
