The Dam Olympics..

Forgot the weightlifting...
Ya know it's that time again, adrenalin begins to pump, the balls come out, the blessings are made....

Athletes begin warming up...


The word is out gymnastics maybe a curly one this year...









But we can always enjoy the watersports, the swimming in particular is a big splash.





Yellowcard...



...and the judge who issues yellowcards, although she is a little colorblind.


Some of the high jumping...


Give everything you've got babe, it's bound to be exhausting.

More of the officials...


High jumping on hold, while boy spots girl...













Track and field


Dont look back. Something might be gaining on you. -Satchel Paige

















The Australian Team...








It's just the quiet contentment that you know you gave all.

What fun photos Pam. They are having a ball, even if they don't win any gold medals. A Westie puppy? Is it yours?

It's a pure pleasure to see animals having that much fun. I don't think i've ever seen a dog jump that high.

Love the shadow shot. Great light. (Looks like late afternoon sun from here.) But the paw on the head shot? The first one? BEST!

I freakin' love it when animals do that human posturing business. Gives me a warm liquid feeling. Heartfulness.

All this and old Satchel too? Who woulda thought you even knew of the man?

Thanks for the smiles.

On to China!

Amazing set Pam.
0430 and my Jack Russel had to go out and do two laps at top speed around the house.

A cat that was napping in the back yard, but turned into a fox when Edwina found her. Good thing for the cat that the dog can't run as well as she once did.

I laughed.

Peace

I love those shots. They are indeed olympic material. I particularly like the one who you caught several times standing upright.

These were a treat to see Pam. What a delightful post on this dreary day and what a blast you must have with your dogs - they are so intelligent and so darn lovable. Love it!
