This sign says it ALL !!

FullSizeRender (2)RIO 2016 – GO Team USA    Indeed this picture says it all.
Written on a bed sheet, I spotted this sign hanging on a fence at the site of a neighborhood flea market on 12 Avenue just north of the five points intersection at Warm Springs and 12th.

What pride we all share for our country and the athletes who represent us. The USA Olympic teams have amassed an incredible number of medals.  As of this writing – Tuesday night the 16th at 9 pm – the USA has the following:

The closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics is scheduled to be held on Sunday, August 21st at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. As per traditional protocol, the ceremony is expected to feature a cultural presentation, as well as closing remarks by International Olympic Committee president Thomas Back and the leader of the Games’ organizing committee, the official handover of the Olympic flag to Yuriko Koike, mayor of Tokyo – host of the 2020 Summer Olympics and the extinguishing of the Olympic flame.


About Ruthie Curtis

About Ruthie I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.” I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate needs while having some fun along the way. I have lived in Columbus for the past 25 years and have been actively involved in the community. My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens; a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA); a board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and is a member of the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus and the Overdue Book Club. I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar (10) I am a UGA Bulldawg – having grown up in Athens and attended the University of Georgia where I received a BA degree in Advertising. I have two daughters, two great son-in-laws, five grandchildren and a Jack Russell Terrier named Jasper. I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!
