Lenny,

 

How exciting for you and your family to be able to attend the speed skating events at the Olympics. We watched them on television today and I probably saw you but you didn't wave, so can't be sure. LOL Sometimes being in a wheelchair or scooter has it's advantages, especially when it comes to seating at major events. Hooray for you. Glad you all had a good time and Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family also.

Wow Lenny, fancy you being there right beside the track on such a great occassion as the Olympics. Ray and I are watching the Games as time permits and are really enjoying what we have seen so far.

 

I am glad you were able to have Christian with you too. Whether he will remember or not I don't know but you will have those pictures to remind you both that on that special day you were there!

I could see all the excitement and happiness beamin through this blog. It felt like we were also seating right beside you and enjoying the event. I was showing off to my son saying that my strokenet friend is actually at the event in the richmond oval wearing red sox hat. so he was scanning for you. I bet you all had lovely valentines day together. I am enjoying my valentines day with my family at ski lodge enjoying our son learning snowboarding.

Lenny how exciting for you and Your family. You happiness and excitement shine through.. thank you for sharing. We have been watching some of the Olympics on TV. I have noticed the traffic on the freeway seems a bit buisier.. The cars have to go through Bellingham to get to the border.there are signs up for people driving to use certain border crossings.

 

I went to Vancouver for Expo, and I rember how exciting it was to see the exhibits. Iam sure Christian will have exciting and happy memories especially with the photos with grandpa.

 

I hope you had a lovely dinner out with your wife.
