America's cup

Allow me to be a little parochial today.

We are watching the America's cup races 
and now that Oracle (USA) has points on the board,
 and racing, it's exciting, nail biting stuff.

My father loved sailing, sailed as a boy,
but we never did. He knew all the nautical terms,
 we don't, but we enjoy watching the competition races.
Especially at the moment.

We are getting up an hour early, 
well my GKB is, to watch the races.
I generally get up in time to watch the second 
race of the day while I have breakfast.
We know it's not over till the fat lady sings,
 or the last race is over,
but at the moment it's looking good and we're 
hoping for the two more wins we need 
to bring the cup home. 

Go Team New Zealand, 
we're all "leaning with you" 
and wearing our red socks!


  1. How fun. All the best to your team!

  2. Hallo Diana. Love it that you;re wearing your red socks. I'm sure the races must be very exciting for you to watch, and I hope that Team New Zealand come out on top!

  3. Dearest Diana,
    I've never seen the America's cup or have no idea about the race(^^;) But I DO understand the thoughts for your father and patriotism♡♡♡

    Lots of Love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
