O is for Olympics

This year's theme for my A-to-Z Blogging Challenge is Significant Events from 2021 and the first 3 months of 2022.

  1. I definitely can't give away the P post! I'm not sure what it's going to be.

    1. Hopefully you came back today to learn what it is. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Such strange Olympic games, with the lockdown, the reused facilities and all.

    Tomorrow is the successor of the biggest over achiever of all time, Curiosity.

    1. Over achiever LOL

      And the Olympics were definitely odd without the spectators.

  3. It was fun seeing the torch map - that trip always feels so special to me. I have no guess on your post for tomorrow - I'm pretty sure that's not a moon lander.

    1. The torch map is always intriguing to me too.

      You're right - it's not a moon lander. But you're not that far off!
