Well, I can finally say it out loud - my hubby, Neil, is going to carry the Olympic torch, on December 29th, in Camp Borden, Ontario. He told me several weeks ago that he thought he was going to be asked, and it's not that I didn't believe him, it just seemed unreal. Well, he has now received his official confirmation and his outfit arrived by courier, a few days ago. A lovely jacket, pants, hat and red mittens, along with banners for us to wave, and the coolest coke bottle, that lights up and changes colour. Our grandson, Corson, is fascinated by it, so he will be the official coke bottle waver lol! Corson is so excited, and I'm sure the hardest part will be keeping him from running along with Papa!
We also get to keep the torch Neil will carry, which is a wonderful souvenier - we just have to get the stand to display it. The best part is that it's during the Christmas holidays, so school will be on holiday and we can all travel to Camp Borden on December 29th, to cheer him on and take tons of pictures. It's an incredible honour - CONGRATULATIONS, NEIL!
