Another Sunday morning...

...round up where I briefly comment on a few items that caught my attention this week. And here goes:
1. Michael Phelps is an incredible athlete, arguably one of the greatest athletes of all time. His breathtaking, record setting, and sometimes by-a-hair finishes are inspiring and a pure pleasure to behold. His excitement and dedication is contagious. But...after seeing an interview yesterday morning the news station did with his mom, I understand where he gets it. This is a family with its feet firmly planted into what's important and what really matters. Mrs. Phelps has done a great job, and Michael's closeness to her, the special bond that they obviously share is heartwarming and makes me like him (and her) even more. Way to go Michael (and Mom!)!!
2. All the USA Olympic athletes are inspiring. Those who win medals and also those who do not. All of them deserve our support, awe, and pride. What an impressive bunch they are!
3. Taking my little grandson out in the Sky convertible is a blast. He loves it!! He's only 2 so sat in a car seat as we cruised around this morning like two cool cats. Both of us in our sunglasses and with our hair flying. He glanced at me while we were stopped at a traffic light and said, "This is fun, Nana." And I said, yep it sure is.
4. Why is it that when a man drives around in a convertible sports car with his son or grandson sitting in a car seat by his side, it only magnifies his attractiveness. I mean, truly, what is sexier than a wonderfully sweet, handsome guy playing and hanging out with a baby. On his own!!! Without help!! But when a woman does the same, it only drags her sexiness down a notch (or three!). Oh it's still cute and sweet, but it really just serves as an alert that 1) she has a child (big red flag!) or 2) that she's old enough to be a grandma (bigger red flag!!).

Have a wonderful week!!
