The Olympic Torch In My Home Town

Tuesday, January 19, 2010.
Yesterday was an emotional day for Us here in Okotoks. We had the Olympic Torch come through town. I really wished I could see it but unfortunately I was so sick. Here are the pictures. The First few are at town hall where the torch was passed to another lucky Recipent.








Here is the coke truck they were handing out flags for us. They have always been a huge sponser of the Olympics.






This truck is to get the crowd excited for the torch.


And the beauty of the Olympic torch. It really makes me proud to have the Olympics in Canada. My daughter got to see it too which I was extremely happy about. I know she will never forget it. Like I did the first time in 1988 when Calgary hosted the olympics.



Security was tight. Which was good.




As for stitching I do have a finish but cannot show it as it's for the ILCS Valentine Exchange I have to finish it into a card. And get it out hopefully will get it done this weekend. Also worked on a bookmark that I cannot show as the recipent reads my blog. I will have a stitching update on the weekend as I went back to Elfland .
Hugs
Terri
