OLYMPIC GAMES: SEVEN YEARS LATER


Had it not been for the diligence of a certain Adelaide citizen, the Olympic games in Sydney in 2000 may have never commenced.
None-the-less, we ensured that the Olympic flame was successfully transported from Mount Olympus to Sydney without a hitch. Here you see the magnificent torch, at Henley Beach, newly equipped with a fresh butane cylinder and the citizen without whom, none of this would have been possible.

Did it take the organizers long to get their torch back from this happy Adelaidian with the 'Never Hide' Ray-Bans. ?? :-))

M.Benaut, did you really carry the Olympic torch? I mean, was it the official one? I´m impressed!

M.Benaut said...

Oui Madame, bien sur !!
Il a été conçu, ici, à Adelaïde.

lynn said...

Yes it's really his, Monica - i was pretty impressed too ;)

M.Benaut said...

Monsieur le Président,
You are too kind, Sir. You have a much better smile.
Your exclamation to Lynn was very proper too. The thought of it.

Monica said...

Lynn, donc M.Benaut c´est un homme de très grands qualité! (erm.. if you know what I mean..)

lynn said...

Oh yes, Mon', i know... ;)

M.Benaut said...

Faites attention, ne confondez pas la qualité avec la quantité mes chères dames !

lynn said...

Ah oui, c'est vrai,... c'est vrai, ca.

Monica said...

bien sûr, mais je crois que dans ce cas la quantité exprime la qualité, ne c´est pas?
M.Benaut, soyez pas modeste!

lynn said...

Η αγαπητή Alice, μιλώ τα τόσο πολύ πολλά γαλλικά. Ζητώ συγγνώμη.

M.Benaut said...

Monica,
Eu amo seus gracejos

Monica said...

so cute! (perfect portuguese this time)

M.Benaut said...

Alice, please do not be offended.

I said in Greek, "Η αγαπητή Alice, μιλώ τα τόσο πολύ πολλά γαλλικά. Ζητώ συγγνώμη."

(Dear Alice, I speak so much French. I apologize.)
