Well, I have been grounded today. My car is in the repair shop. They found a leak in some kind of valve in the evaporation system of the gas tank. They found it late in the day so have to order the parts tomorrow. I hope they can get the job done tomorrow. I don't like being without my wheels.

I did some cooking this morning. I cooked Danny's chicken and made some rice for him and for us. I defrosted some ground beef and made stuffed peppers in the crockpot. They came out pretty good.

I watched the Olympics and Betsey did a fantastic job as goalie in the women's water polo game against Spain. The score was tied 9-9. There was a lot of unlady-like and unsportsmanship going on. The girls would grab each other's bathing suits and the grabbee who try to defend herself and the referee would call a foul on the grabbee as he could not see the grabber under the water. Betsey, of course, was not involved in this as the players don't go near the goalie.

They have another game on Friday. I don't know the time as this game was at 1:15. The last game was at 2:30.

Isn't it fun to watch the Olympic Water Polo games when you know someone? Acually, I've never met Betsy, but, Phylis has told me about her being on the team, so I feel like I know her. She does a superb job as goalie. It is pretty surprising to see how much scrapping goes on under the water. But, as you said i'm sure the refs don't catch all the fouls. We're looking forward to the next game and we'll sure be pulling for Team USA. Ruth

The next game starts at 2:40 Friday against China.

I never realized how much scraping goes on under the water.

Pray all goes well.
