Olympics

Some of my thoughts on Rio Olympics

Heartwarming - Brazil finally gets its Olympic gold in soccer, beating
World Cup nemesis. Germany
Disheartening - Heavily favored US women's soccer team loses to Sweden
Some top performers - Bolt, Biles, Eaton, Phelps
Exciting finish - Britain's  Women's field hockey team upsets Netherlands in thrilling shoot out.
Most graceful event - Dressage
Most predictable - US mens and womens basketball prevail
Surpising high performing country - Great Brittain
Surpringly exciting to watch - sailing
Unneeded sport - Golf
Worst event - The "robbery"

haiku

I know it's summer
But this endless wave of heat
Is ridiculous

Lots of luck.

No match for Koch Brothers, Super Pacs, etc.

2 haikus

A long sleepless night
With dark periods of boredom
Inflicts a haiku:

The bright land of Oz
With gold roads and rich castles
Never did exist

heat

The heat wave goes on
Seems that it will never stop
Pass the mint juleps

aging

I walk, do much else
Poorly, because I have lived
Past my "sell by" date

election

Clinton picks Tim Kaine
So Kaine will debate Mike Pence
So cool, so intense!
