Olympic Gold and men in sheds. A truly great legacy of the Olympic Games
It has been a quiet day again here, so I am not saying much… I think my brain is still a bit frazzled from the bug and I was trying to paint behind a radiator with my patent curved brush. I notice the Olympic British team has now got the most medals it has had in over one hundred years, but I have also noticed that most of them involve things. When I say things I mean something like a bike or a boat or a horse (that includes the fake horse) or a ball or a gun or so on. So I think in future Britain should only do sport where an object of some sort is involved, I even noticed the other night that a comment was made that the wheels on the Olympic bikes may not have been used since the last Olympics.
It may therefore that our athletes may not necessarily be the best but our things are. In other words our record numbers of medals are the result of geeky men in sheds at the bottom of their gardens. So with luck men and young children all over the country will be encouraged to tinker with stuff in sheds for hours on end………. A truly great legacy of the Olympic Games, I for one will be spending many hours tinkering with stuff in a shed now hoping for Olympic Gold for my things as they are used by someone to do something.
