OK everybody. Check out your TV listings and find out when the World Figure Skating Championships is being broadcast in your area. Then look at the side where the judges are. Now look at the other side of the arena about 13 rows back and just a little right of center (looking from the judges side). There I am. Hi! Waving at all of you! My very first Worlds. I get to see the results live. Are you going to look for me? Or are you going to be watching some silly basketball or something?

I'll be looking for you..........of course that means I'll probably miss the action on the ice, but hey, you're more important right? LOL

This reminds me of when my daughter visited New York for the first time. she knows that I oput my tv on in the mornings to the TODAY show. I also put the same station on in my living room so I am hearing it as I wander around in the mornings getting ready for work. She actually threatedned to be ther in the crowd waving and showing a big sign with my name on it and shouting out :This is for my Mom in Jamaica.' She was so convincing about this that I was actually scared that she would do it! Watched the show with my heart beating so fast! Little witch!

I hope so. And most likely Pang and Tong and Zhang and Zhang will be in the running for pairs medals, maybe even gold!

How wonderful for you. This is something you will never forget. There are few things that come along in life that make that much of an impression. So please enjoy it for the rest of us. Blessings

If I see it I will look for you ;) but figure skating isn't my favourite sport i must admit that! I think they are great skaters - esp. the male ones. I prefer the pairs if I have to choose - the dancing part is so boring.... I hope you'll wave back at me if I wave *lol* Today it's icehockey for me on the TV - I'll look for my husband ;)
