The Rio Olympics, a Bath, and Jelly Fish......
I have not mentioned the weather much lately, partly because dad got paid loads of money to ensure that the weather during the Olympics was good, but he also got paid loads of money to ensure it was rotten too. So he has worked hard to achieve both; and done a rather good job of it too if you ask me. However today was too hot here by far, I have tried to cut some more of the grass but it is not easy when it is this hot. It grows rather fast when it is both hot and wet so will need cutting again soon. I also got to fix a sewing machine that someone had taken apart to see how it came apart, it is a tempting thing to do take things apart, and I do it all the time. There is a real sense of satisfaction putting it back together and finding you have managed to save three parts and a few screws and it still works, mostly.
I feel I am now 95.45% back to normal which is not bad, after my bug and seeing the accountant yesterday, cutting grass and dealing with a very hot day today, if I keep getting better I will be on course for my own Olympic gold in the next Olympic games in Brazil? (I think it is
Brazil, OK yes Rio).
I thought I would train for the Cracking Brazil nuts with your Teeth Competition;
I know the dog can beat me dead easy but he is a dog and therefore banned from
competing. The dog says its discrimination but I said it would be the same as a
seagull doing the long jump, or jelly fish in the synchronized diving competition.
As part of my training for my sporting career as a famous Olympian I was lying in the bath holding my breath underwater. This gave me the opportunity to take a picture of the Ghost Writer taking a picture of me, using my underwater camera. Just after I took this picture however the dog said he would help and held my head under the water for ages, he said it would strengthen my lungs.
It appears the Brits won some more medals today too and it appears a man who can run very fast, ran very fast but not as fast has he can. And another man who can run further very fast ran very fast as well in fact faster than anyone has run before so WELL COOL.
