Story from Seattle

Posted by Carly Rose Jackson on March 12, 2009

So this post is a blatant rip-off of my mom’s blog.

To the left is a photo of my grandparents: Richard and Rosalie Jackson at the Seattle Space Needle.  My dad sent this picture via cell phone. Ah technology.

Here’s a story, copied directly from my mom’s blog.  Sorry if people have already read it there, it’s just too good not to copy.

“Do all swimmers look alike?  Carly wrote on her blog that it is often difficult to tell the swimmers apart in their goggles and caps.  And it might be the same issue when the swimmers are out of the pool in their warm up suits and their hair knotted up on top of their heads.  Well, last evening after finals, we were waiting in the lobby for Lara to come upstairs from deck.  Her very proud grandmother, Rosie, went up to a swimmer and started to hug her thinking that it was Lara, and it was not.  So Rosie apparently made some comment that hopefully this swimmer would one day be as fast as Lara.   When Rosie rejoined our group, we informed her that she had been speaking with Rebecca Soni, an Olympian with one individual gold and one individual silver from Beijing.  So sorry Rebecca!”
