    I like to watch gymnastics. She is quite the phenom, but I missed her performance. Did you know that the origin of the word gymnastics is ancient Greek 'to excersize naked'?

    It was a clip of the "floor" exercises I saw and she is simply AMAZING! . Did they? That musta been a crowd pleasure! Thank you for your reply and Happy Tuesday to thee and thine! :) I wonder why it isn't GYMNOSTICS  rather than gymnastics? Language is puzzlling isn't it?


    IF athletes performed naked exposed bare I think the crowd should have been required to strip and be naked exposed bare too. Don't you? This post was edited by RosieG at June 8, 2021 9:24 AM MDT

    We will never know. All we have is other people's words and we don't know if they were truthful or liars. SIGH. Thank you for your reply E! :)

    I didn't see her performance recently, but I have seen her.  There's a video on the internet of that gymnastic feat that no one else has ever done.  There's also one that shows a performance of some triple flip that she does and it's in slow motion - just amazing.  She was interviewed recently on 60 Minutes, I think, and she's quite articulate and level-headed.

    Well I saw a clip of her doing "floor" exercises yesterday I think and it was breathtaking. She did things that seem to be impossible! Thank you for your reply L! :)

    She really is.  Happy Wednesday to you. :)  We've had a heat wave going for a few days now.  It's hot, humid and I hate it!

    We are doing much better.  We've been in the upper 60s-low to mid 70s all this week.  We've had a couple of cloudy days and a bit of rain, but no soaring temps.  Much happier when the thermometer stays und4er 75.

    By the way, 60 Minutes this past Sunday interviewed Simone Biles.  She is a delightful young woman and very smart as well as very talented.  You would enjoy the interview.
