It was wonderful talking to Mike today, hearing the excitement in his voice about the Games and seeing the torch. Mike, Kerry and Karen watched from a friend's house. Mike had to go to work, but Kerry and Karen were able to stay for what sounded like a bang-up breakfast. The torch and breakfast - sounds like a great combination to this Gramster.
It is really happening!
I remember when Sydney put in the bid and how the city celebrated when it was named. This is a time that this sometime Australian will never ever forget. To all the organizers, volunteers & athletes - good on ya, mates!
