Son Jake is in Vancouver! About now he is attending a women's hockey match between the USA and Finland, a match that I have on TV and that the US has well in hand.
My nephew Andy couldn't let this opportunity of having the Olympics next door slip by, so he got into the ticket lottery system some time ago. Over the past months arrangements were made, a five bedroom house was booked, and now my sister, her husband, their three kids, spouses, and seven grandchildren, plus Jake, are having an Olympic experience. They drove north yesterday, got settled and were ready to hit the town.
Besides hockey, I think the girls have tickets to women's figure skating practice. I'll hear all about it when they stop by on their way home Sunday evening. In the meantime, I'm keeping up via Facebook and Jake's postings. Smart phones are so amazing.
