As I mentioned yesterday, the Olympic torch passed through here on Tuesday July 17th. It actually passed literally a couple of streets away from where we live. From what I can gather it’s been all over the UK recently, with a few more stops to make before finally arriving in London for – if I’m not mistaken – Friday July 27th.
Look, give me a break, it's sports and I don't really have any interest in sports. Just be glad I even knew when it was coming through here and leave it at that, LOL!
Anyway, Kelly went to watch it pass and take photos, but I stayed home with the dogs (we figured it would be easier with the crowds of people that would be lining the streets to see it pass). While he was out there he took these photos:
And he got given this flag type thing, which he brought home to give to me:
There was also a rubbery bracelet type thing, but we didn’t bother grabbing a photo of that, since we couldn’t get a shot where you could see the writing on it (something about the fact Lloyds TSB – one of the big bank branches – was sponsoring the Olympic games or something).
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the photos.
