V is for Vancouver, host to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games

I lived and worked in the Vancouver area most of my life, but when I tried to get Games tickets through the Vancouver Olympic Committee's lottery system of ticket sales,
I was a genuine gold-medal loser!
So I stayed home in Alberta with Dick and Lindy.

However, here's my brother Clint with a big fish in downtown Vancouver.
Dad would have loved this picture!

Clint, who lives in the suburbs, looks over his shoulder to see if he's being followed.
Nope, not a bit.

This isn't Vancouver, this is the letter V in the clouds above the sunset at our house in Alberta.

What a shame you didn't get any tickets. Great photos - Vancouver is a lovely place. I used to visit when I was a kid.

Same thing happened to us. We tried and gave up. By the second time around there wasn't anything left we were interested in seeing. But we did enjoy it on TV. - Margy

I like this, including the V and the scrabble message.

I would have loved to visit one of the biathlon races. Then again, watching the races on television is a bit easier and you get to see a whole lot more.

The real thing though...

Great pictures of Vancouver, Kay, - sorry about the tickets. We stayed home too and enjoyed the great Olympic spirit at home.
