I would also love to be there for the opening ceremonies in Toronto. Seeing as that is not going to happen, I think the best thing we can do is hope that with our own Tiggersk8 being there that she carries all our best wishes to the games for us and hopefully share her experiences with us. I'm looking forward to that.

You're making me blush Osipi. . I managed to find one of two must haves last night, which is a T shirt I have w/a Teddy Bear waving our Maple Leaf flag proudly, but do you think Mom & I could find our spare big flag we have for our flag pole? Nope!! The search continues tonight, but if it doesn't turn up, Dad's got a Dr's appt tomorrow & I'll get one then.

I have tickets for the Opening Ceremonies, Swimming Finals (The Pan Am Water Sports Complex's just too far out for 2 trips there & back) & both Prelim & Finals for Wheelchair Rugby. The other Events I'm interested in, like Wheelchair Tennis, are in Public Areas like Nathan Phillips Square & are free. I also hope to make it out to the Zoo, as it'll be the last chance I'll have to see the Pandas, & the Blue Jays are playing their final Homestand starting tonight & ending Sunday, so I hope I'm able to get to one Jays game at least.

Not too much longer to go!!

An athlete says they're not sure if Harry knows how many lives have been saved by starting the Invictus Games.

No matter where you read about the events Harry participated in leading up to the Invictus Games, Harry's personality shines through. It was typical Harry mode interacting with the two children and of course, should he be meeting someone that just happens to be in a wheelchair, Harry instictively gets down to their level. I think this is what impresses me the most about Harry. His instinctive knowing just the right thing to do to make others feel comfortable.

Of course, the best pictures of all are at the Fail. They never disappoint when it comes to their photography. Just wish their reporting was at a higher level of integrity.

Toronto, along with the rest of the southern part of the province, is currently under a heat warning for the next two days, with maximum humidex values forecast to approach 40 on both Saturday and Sunday. I feel for the athletics and wheelchair tennis athletes who'll be competing in that on Sunday. I'm assuming the cars in the JLR driving challenge will have AC.

I also note that they were forced to move the cycling to its backup site at High Park from the Islands.

It does seem like Mother Nature is throwing her own challenges at the competitors over the weekend with unusually high heat for this time of year.

I'm sure that they'll take everything into consideration and make sure that the athletes keep hydrated and watch for over exertion and sunstroke. I don't think though that *anything* could really damper these athletes spirit now as the opening ceremony is so close at hand.

Downloaded the ESPN App to watch the opening ceremony at 7pm. You can watch the games on the app too.

This is not only funny, but it shows Harry is so down to earth.
