now i must get back to the olympics - leo and scooter have saved a spot for me, beside them ... *smile* ...


A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. ~Paul Sweeney

Congratulations. Enjoy celebrating your love and commitment.

You've got a few years on us. We come up for just 16 years in December.

Happy Anniversary with God' special blessings on you both!

And yay for Canada! Finally! Ryan Cochrane was amazing. However, Phelps is an amazing story, huh? And did you see Bolt in the 100m? Like a gazelle in flight! Do have a wonderful week.
Love, Sita

Dear Saija,
congratulations. You were and are the most beautiful couple.
There's something so extraordinary peaceful and harmonic about the two of you.
May God bless you and stay right by your right side each and every day of your life.
P.S:
The 19th will be our 20th anniversary. Gunnar is driving Serina to her new college, and I'm not even sure he'll be back for the day.
We never had much time for celebrations, but lots of blessed ordinary days. In the end that's what makes a marriage lucky.
From Felisol

Happy Anniversary! And many more! What a nice way to celebrate your anniversary with 3 medals! I'm so happy for our athletes. They've earned their rewards.

Oh just a question. What sport would you never think of watching regulary, but love it in the olympics? And what sport do you thing we could do with out? I thing womens beach vollyball. Nothing wrong with tha actual sport, but the way they are dressed.....
