171st post

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING.

This morning when referring to the buggy trail,  I said "extends from near

Turner Ashby School and my Father and Mother's last home", I should have

added "that Father built."

I don't know exactly when we started going to our grandparents house,

maybe, when we lived on High Street in Dayton. I know we went when lived in

the house on Ottobine Road (I have talked alot about us there and I have more

to add at a later date). Was the last we went when lived on Thompson Street in

Dayton? I don't know.

I started out this morning, me telling you how to get to our grandparents and

we'll get there eventually. We all have to learn to be patient.

Summary of the XXXI Olympiad.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

By SIMON ROMERO and ANDREW JACOBS, AUG. 21, 2016....

'The Carnivalesque ceremony, featuring frevo dancers twirling umbrellas,

a performance by the samba legend Martinho da Vila and the songs of

Carmen Miranda, offered a folkloric if fittingly upbeat bookend to an

Olympiad that had been shrouded in grim assessments and protests as

the Games approached.

Despite widespread fears that the city would be unprepared, or that crime

and disorganization might turn the Olympics into a national embarrassment,

many Brazilians came to view the Games as a triumph and a much-needed

distraction from the country’s economic malaise and political upheaval.

In the days after the opening ceremony, the criticisms that the Games were

an inappropriate use of public money at a time of crisis were mostly

subsumed by a sense that Brazil had largely met the logistical challenges,

delivering the world’s biggest sporting event for the half-million visitors

who flocked to Rio for South America’s first Olympics."
