This blog records my wanderings, achievements and disasters since retiring in 2011.
You'll have that photo of you and the torch forever. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
What a great opportunity. My daughter manage to hold one too last week as a woman who ran through our town with it came to show off her 'torch'.Mollyxxx
Oh, neat! That is a great picture, one you will never forget. I am thrilled to be following the Olympics via your blog!
Awesome - I've never even seen an Olympic torch!
Oh, that is an awesome picture of you holding the torch. It brings back memories of when the Winter Olympics were in BC in 2010. Despite the pros and cons about the event before it happened, the excitement was undeniable when it actually arrived. I was lucky enough to see the torch passed twice in different communities. :)
How great. The photo turned out wonderfully and you'll have a memento for a long time to come!
Oh how awesome is that!!!!! You are such a pretty lady.... So glad you had the privilege of having your picture made with one of the torches. WOW!!!!Hugs,Betsy
The last photo is great, something to show your great grandchildren and tell them your story!
Nice picture. Hope you have a great two weeks! See you on the other side!I also suspect you may enjoy the Cairns area - shots of the reef coming over next few posts.First part of my trip is covered in a post called "From here the world looks like a map" on my other blog.Cheers - Stewart M
I have read just the blog, a lot of very interesting posts have you here and I've learned a lot more ...Greetings to you ...
Very very cool. My brother way back in the 60's got to be an escort runner for an Olympic torch that went through Arizona.
You look like a real athlete ... Great photo shot.
What fun and I love the shot of you with the torch.
Wonderful shot of you and the torch ~ What an event ~ eh?~ namaste, (A Creative Harbor)
Wow ! that's a wonderful shot to be framed and put in a honor place !We had exactly the same cats and dogs raining weather only since two days the sun shows its nose. When I arrive in London on the 26, they announce 28° ! and my Stonehenge sightseeing had been cancelled. I don't know why. will be for another time.
What a beautiful torch! Love the story behind the design. And a great shot of you holding it! :o)How exciting!!! :o)
Very cool. I hope Great Britain enjoys hosting the games!
I remember when the 2000 Olympic's Torch came through our town, it was quite an emotional time. Wonderful that you had opportunity to hold this one.
Wow, I saw the torch go through near where I live once, never got as close as you did....great photo!!!
I must have been a wonderful moment!
What a thrill for you to actually hold an olympic torch. It is very symbolic. I'm glad that you explained the symbols.
The Vancouver Olympics seem like yesterday, so i feel that I am living a little bit of your experience with you. Every time London appears on the news (every day lately), i think of you and hope your are having fun. And, this is just the beginning! Love the photo of you with the torch, and look forward to lots more updates.
They showed some of the party going on in the Olympic Village on the news here in Spain today, and I thought of you! Looks like it's all quite exciting! :o)
WOW!!! You lucky gal. I would have given anything to have my picture taken there. I am so happy for London. It is one of my favorite places to visit...used to visit. It is just too expensive now. Thrilled you had the experience. genie
Wow! That was lucky (an honor) to get to hold that torch! I am excited to watch the Olympics, because of the sport of course, but also because when we were in London in 2007, we were watching the very beginnings of the project to renovate that area for it....I hope I see some things I remember!!!!
you look great with the torch :)
