Hi Endre,

No it belongs to someone nearby. I remember the Olympics when Michael Phelps won 8 metals. He represents US well.

Kristin I always enjoyed the Olympics, I actually went to the 1972 Olympics in Munich so  I am a bit partial to the Summer Olympics even though my father always loved watching the Winter Olympics...

Hi Endre,

I adore the skating at the winter olympics but it seems to have gotten so political and corrupt with olympians lying about their age. So my favorite is the summer olympics as they are smoother and all are good sports. I would love to go to the olympics someday.

Thanks for the August memories, it brings back summer for me - especially the summer of 1961 when I was first aware of Rock and Roll!

Hi Roy,

Thanks so much for stopping and fun graduations are always full of good memories and I am guessing you had 3- High School, Undergrad and Law. You know what they say; the more the merrier.

Hi Joanna,

The 50's and 60's were fun for me too and I love Rock and Roll. Elvis and the Beatles were my favorites.

Kristin, I actually remember a couple of those events as they happened.  Had no idea any MLB team scored 30 runs in a game!  That would have been an action packed game to watch!

Hi S & B,

I agree as sometimes there are no runs until the extra inning so 30 would have been fun to cheer at.
