Re: Awards Ceremony

They may have been good about reporting, but the fact remains that they
booed her. Not only is this very rude but can you imagine how that made
Val feel. Put yourself in her place. If I had work very hard to
accomplish something and at 52 years of age had accomplished something
as great as a gold metal and then at an awards ceremony you were booed
and hissed it would be very disheartening. Maybe you are all better
women then me, but if that had happened to me, I would be somewhat
upset. Too bad we can't put on an Awards Ceremony here and let the whole
USA team and individuals know all of once just how very proud that we
are of them for bring home the individual gold and the team silver. Now
that would be deafening! 

It is going to be 50 degrees today and I'm going riding. And my 7 year
old girl, Kate is grinning because she is going with me. She is going to
be riding one of those crazy wild Arabs of mine. :-)
