Are y’all enjoying the Olympics – both human and feline/canine (see side bar!) of course? Me and Charlie definitely are!
I have two favourite Olympian sporting people and moments so far:
First is Niger rower Hammadou Djibo Issaka who as a wild card entry came in last in his heat in the sculls competition but he tried, really tried to cross that finishing line.
Then there’s Nur Suryani Mohamad Taibi of Malaysia, eight months pregnant, who came 34th out of 56 competitors in the women’s air rifle shooting final asking her as yet unborn daughter “to be quiet, mummy’s shooting” while she competed.
I kind of feel I’m this sort of people. I do try and give things my best. I may not win accolades or fame and fortune but I’d like to say that hey, I tried, really tried my best.
Charlie says: I try to sleep on messy bed.
Pic taken last night! Charlie is doing ok – more vet’s visits to come I’m afraid but for now, he’s doing ok.
p.s. Lovely Madeleine of Scribble and Edit is having a book launch for her debut romance novel Ultimate Sacrifice on 1 August! Go Madeleine (a short extract of her book may be found here)!!!
p.p.s. Amazing Ellen Whyte of Katz and Other Tales now has her Katz Tales series of books available at Smashwords and Barnes and Noble too! Extracts of her fab series may be found here.!!
