Nastia Liukin has won the gold for the US and her performance was so strong. Shawn Johnson from Iowa won the silver and her performance was very strong, too. Of special significance to me is that Nastia lives in Parker, Tx. Right down the road from us. Shawn a little farther away. However, we have a good friend from Iowa.
We are surrounded by greatness these days! Joshua from SYTYCD was on the early morning show and will make an appearance at a high school just down the road from where we live on Saturday morning. I'm pretty old, but I just might have to go down there.
This is the day we are taking our grandson to the movies. Fortunately Star Wars-The Clone Wars starts tomorrow and we will get in somewhere to see it. He was so tickled about going to see that. Actually we went to see The Mummy-3 on Wednesday and I was sort of relieved we didn't take him. It was a little more violent than he should see at this tender age of just turning 7. Nine or ten, yes, but we don't think he is ready to see it yet and especially not on the really big screen. So, I'll return to posting in a day or so, or maybe tomorrow night.
Oh yes...while waiting for the medals to me awarded I found a place to get knitting lessons. It isn't too far and they have one on one lessons. Click here to see it, but be prepared to go crazy about the yarn they have. They even have lessons about knitting socks. I don't think I'm going there. I had, well, my husband the TCU alumni got a magazine about continuing education in the mail yesterday. They have classes for $75 for four sessions and the intermediates make a shawl.
My daughter and I wouldn't be in the same class...so I don't know. I do know learning to knit better is a goal I'd like to attain. Not gold medal knitting, but just better.
See ya laterz alligators. I'm off to a galaxy far far away. And HALLELUJAH it rained this evening and it is supposed to rain for the next five days. Thank You, God! It may finally stay under 100 degrees for a while.
