My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 21

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. 


We just finished the Winter Olympics Games and I'm proud of the USA for all its accomplishments. The USA Flag was raised high many times and we won a record number of medals. This is one of the flags on the Main Street bridge.

Going along with the sports theme here is the entrance to the MAC Center at Kent State University. Basketball, gymnastics and wrestling are contended here. Kent is part of the Mid American Conference. 
They used the theme of Dream on one side with a fan,
and the theme of Inspire on the other side with a cheerleader.
We should all Dream and Inspire others.

Wow, I didn't realize that it was that time again, until people at work were talking about a hockey game that went into overtime. I don't watch TV. Great themes to live by though...

Beautiful murals on the MAC center, I haven't seen them. I also enjoyed the Olympics and watched most of it. Nice header shot.

That first shot is lovely!

Craver Vii said...

Wouldn't that be cool to have your image used as part of a gigantic inspirational message!

I'm hoping the sun peeks out at you this week. I drove up to Wisconsin this weekend and saw a little bit of blue sky and felt warm sunbeams through the windshield. It was great! (sigh) Then I came back home, where the clouds filled every inch of sky.

I couldn't agree more ;-)
I'm a little sad the Olympics have ended because I enjoyed watching as much of it as time permitted ... wish I still had bits recorded to watch even now but the DVR erased the previous day's events to record the new day's activities. I enjoyed these images from your world.
Hugs and blessings,

Tipper said...
