Did I tell you last year that my oldest boy lives in Stratford London, sorta spitting distance from the Olmpic Park and I said to him LAST year in an e-mail that as he was in his 30's, single and unattached he should paint up the inside of his two bedroom up and down in Blenheim Road and put a notice in the Tokyo and New York Times to rent it out to the rich for the three weeks and go and live down the road in Chingford with his aunt and he would have a nice chunk of change to offer to his mortgage or for other living expences. It's off the main road with parking space and The Park can be reached in about half an hour of brisk walking which is an ideal start to the day if you are likely to be sitting in stadiums all day.                             His reply to me in Ft.Lauderdale.                                                           "Can you come and do it?"                                                                                                               I had read that people who lived close to Wimbledon every year rented out their driveways for people to park and go and watch the tennis. It would cost me about $900 to go and then the wife and my daughter and the two grandchildren would have to come as well so we would need the rental to cover that but that wasn't the idea. It was to help him with his finances seeing that he is without work.                                  Reading the London papers last week I saw that some single rooms were selling for $460 a night! and Council tenents with rooms overlooking the park were being investigated by the housing departments to make sure that their rent was up to date.                       I asked again recently and he wanted to know 'What if I couldn't get them out at the end of the games?'                                                       You always said that you wanted to learn Japanese!' I said under my breath.
