I awoke around 6am and fired up my computer. Let Danny out in the back yard and made a cup of coffee. The Australians were playing the Hungarians for the bronze. The Australians won. I was able to watch on my lap top. It was not on the tv until noon. The US lost to the Nederlands 9 to 8 but came away with the Silver.

Just before lunchtime, a large hawk was in the yard across the street from the Company, We all ran out to look at it. As the crowd gathered, more people came out to see the hawk. It was not a Red Tail but similar in size. I believe it was a Northern Harrier aka Marsh Hawk. The company is located very near the Tinicum Marshes so it made sense for there to be a Marsh Hawk. Don got a photo of it and so did the VP of the company.

Rick had a function to go to tonight so Sylvia and I went to dinner with Aunt Jean. We went to Iron Hill in Media. It is a Micro Brewery. The food was good and for dessert, we had black raspberry-chocolate chip ice cream. The gave a triple scoop. We had a very nice time.

I walked Danny and I am ready to turn in.

I was watching NBC News last night at 6:30. They did a report on the US Women's Polo team. Did you by any chance catch it?

We were able to watch all 4 quarters of Betsey's USA Water Polo Team Thursday morning. So close. They can all be extremely proud of themselves for going home with the Silver Medal from the Olympics. And, Betsey did an awesome job. After all, this game came down to the two best teams and someone had to win and someone had to lose of course, but, such an honor for Betsey to gain such recognition for her role as the goalie. It was so exciting. My husband and i were hollering right out loud for Team USA.

Have a nice weekend Karol. Ruth
