Olympic Memories
(DETM March Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
Watching the Winter Olympics over the past month, I’ve relived pleasant memories of attending 2 Olympic games as a happy tourist: Los Angeles Summer Olympics 1984 and Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.
In addition, traveling to destinations that have hosted the Olympics in the past is one of my bucket list items also.  In 1977 I leaned to ice skate on the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympic skating rink (that isn’t there anymore).  
Watching this Winter Olympics, and seeing the Bird’s Nest venue, allowed me relive my trip to Beijing a few years ago. 
I’m wishing luck and skill to our Paralympic athletes this month!
Stay safe and strong.
Dave Emery
