Kissing point

Apparently, when the Olympic flame is passed from one person to another as it goes around the country, the point at which the torches meet and the flame is transferred is called the Kissing Point.  When the flame came through our town we happened to be very close to where a handover was planned.  Total coincidence, but how lucky!  So for sketch 21 of the 28 Days of Sketches, I used some of my torch photos:

Update on Coco: She's got a bit more energy about herself today and it's now a matter of trying to keep her from jumping up and stretching too much.  Not easy when she is possibly the nosiest dog in town and is constantly by your side, standing on her back legs trying to be involved in whatever is going on!  I think this may become more of an issue as the week goes on.  She's not impressed by having to be on her lead when in the garden - no digging holes in the flower beds or rummaging around in the borders.  And she's especially not impressed with her cone ...
 Only 9 days to go until it can come off sweetie ....
