Absolutely, don't worry about us. If I was in the home town olympics I would be taking in every minute I could. But, of course, I would have on my new Vancouver Olympic jacket I just posted. I think you want one....he-he...

Enjoy every moment, every maple leave, everything RED and White.

See you when it's over.... but please, keep taking lots of pictures to share.

Way too Go on the GOLD for Men's Mogals..
