Does anyone out there know any of the Olympic athletes that are going to compete next month? There is even a commercial about our pot smoking swimmer Mikey showing on TV. Isn't swimming a summer Olympic sport? Oh no, there is Apollo Ono the guy that skates real fast in small circles and has those funny chin whiskers. I understand less about speed skating than any other Olympic sport. I can't help but smile every time I think about my fat belly in skin tight skater gear. Those little guys look like a bunch of Corvette's getting ready and I would be a Mac Truck. (or a Volvo for those of you watching the names on trucks now days)
I just finished W.E.B. Griffin's latest book. It takes us back to the Mid WWII days and the spy efforts in Argentina. This book has let our Hero slip into the politics and how we helped Argentina avoid a Civil Way like the one that ripped Spain apart. It just introduced the character Eva Duarte Peron and how the German money helped her husband become rich and I assume famous. Juan Peron in moving from infamous to famous in the book and they have set up the next book very well. It was more of a continuation of the story like a TV series rather than a book that stands on its own. But, it is my popcorn and I'll continue to read any and all new books that the Butterworth boys write.
Our front porch kitty has been curiously absent for about three days. he is by the hour approaching a new record for time off the farm. I'm pretty sure that he is at a nearby farm visiting the ladies and most likely will show up either battle scarred or come back for some rest and recuperation. Food and a sunny spot on the south porch do wonders for rebuilding his stamina and fur. Either way, just not having him rush into the garage every time I open a door is a break for me.
Off to do some work at Valley Brooke today. Then, basketball tonight.
