Friday Funny 2-16/18 (PT Olympics)

Yummy Olympic food

I'm not sitting as much as I was before, I try to get up and "walk" around every hour or so. I'm working my knee, and ankle, while putting some weight on my leg. Commercials are a great time to move while watching Olympics on TV. I can pretend I'm in my own Olympic training camp.

Take Lindsey Vonn for example, did you see her horrific crash, and airlift via a backboard a few years ago? I've also been seeing her rehab physical therapy routines on TV. All of that makes me look like a whiny, wimpy, slacker . Sheesh, and she's back in the 2018 Olympics!  

Tug, pull!

I read a joke somewhere that said the real winner of the Olympic events, was the worldwide spandex industry. I chuckled at that. I can't even imagine how much time, effort, and money went into designing, and producing all of those uniforms.

They had curling on a big screen while I was doing my physical therapy the other day. Even though curling is a really big sport in Fairbanks, (where I used to live), I never went, or learned it's rules. Watching it without sound is sort of like watching bowling, or golf. Yes, I know there are people out there who love those sports.. maybe you, don't send me hate mail. I think they are kind of slow moving on TV.

I don't do much housework right now.

Curling also has a mixed doubles team event. It can make for a complicated relationship if your significant other is your competitive partner. The couple from Norway have been known to argue it out. I think that would be difficult in front of the entire watching world. Article here.

We're actively working on my return to Denali Rose, and my life. I'm going to be on crutches for awhile more, as weight-bearing is permitted, or tolerated, but I think I can maneuver the boat now. We have built in handholds everywhere onboard, and with one crutch, I can get around from handhold to handhold. The main concern is the ice, and snow on the docks, and I'll have to use the ramps at high tide. 😀  I'm getting those spikey things that attach to the foot of a crutch in order to keep a good footing and not slip. I can do the  exercises, and wait on healing in my own space, and bed. I also need to let my family have their lives, and their home back. We haven't got an exact date yet, but we're narrowing it down. Hallelujah!

What's your favorite sport, is it in the Olympics? Do you play a sport, do you want to be in the Olympics?

As always, we enjoy hearing from you, either here in comments or on our Facebook Denali Rose Sailboat page.


  1. Glad to hear you are doing well, Donna...No way are you a whiny, wimpy slacker! Bob and I love the snowboarding Olympic events...don't forget, we are close to Whistler if you want to take it up! Lots of love!

    1. Oh yes, snowboarding/skiing....hmmm, I think not. ;-) Staying upright appears to be a challenge to me. Thanks for the encouraging words, love to you both!
