I'll start with the Olympics...cool opening ceremony! Creativity + Technology = Incredible. On a sad note, hearing of the Georgian Luge racers death in a training run was heart wrenching. A young man with his whole future in front of him with his life cut short. Tragic. Was it because the track is too fast? Was it because the athletes are pushing themselves to their limits and beyond? Does any of that matter? So many of the Winter Olympic sports are dangerous...the skiing, the ski jumping, the sledding events....even the figure skating. I just know that I wouldn't put my backside on a rocket sled and fly down an icy shoot! I think curling would be more my speed if I were to try one. Anyway, in honor of the lost life on the luge, I'll start with the luge symbol that I did in school way back when. All of the symbols are black and white illustrator drawings using snow flakes to show movement. Whoosh.
On to other things. Did you get outside this morning? It was a winter wonderland with all of the hoar frost coating every stick and twig. Love it! I took a few pictures. I'll intersperse my other stuff in with the frost pictures....because the frost speaks for itself and I don't have pictures of the other stuff. And my day and my head are bouncing around that way today. I think I need more coffee.Yesterday was our friend Bob's birthday. Happy Birthday Bob! We took him out to Applebee's. I like Applebee's....and amazingly everyone in the family does....Bob too. Sometimes it's hard to find a restaurant that makes everyone equally happy. Applebee's is one of them. After dinner Bob came over and we watched the opening ceremonies. Then Brian had some friends over....some overnight friends over. My house has 4 teenage boys in it this morning. I think I need some more coffee.
