So,,,tonite,,,I am going to watch one of my favorite shows!! "Dancing with the Stars". I just love Dancing,,love to watch Dancing,,and love to Dance. I get it naturallly,,both of my parents were dancers. Not professional dancers mind you,,just a man and a woman who loved to dance.
They were jitterbuggers, foxtrotters, square dancers, buck dancing, and disco ers,,lol. They just loved dancing,,any kind of dancing. And they were good too!
I remember when I was around 6 years old. They would go out every week-end with their bestfriend couple to their Square Dancing Club. They would travel to other cities sometimes too. Mom is a wonderful seamstress and she would make her dresses,,and buy shirts for my Dad that matched her dresses. Those big ole fluffy cantina skirts!! Sometimes they would host the dance at our house in our full basement. I can remember sitting on the steps that went down to the basement and watch them dancing,,and hearing the calls. It was so awesome to watch!!
Later when I was a teen,,and Disco was the in thing,,"Saturday night Fever". They would have parties on the week-ends and couples would come over and disco,,,, I even would do the bump with my Dad,,and wasn't even embarrassed,,lol.
So I guess my love of Dancing is a gift!
Here is a picture of my parents during their Square Dancing Days,,
Of course it was a Valentine Square Dancing Party,,don't ya just love my Dad's hair cut and glasses? lol. And yes,,Mom made that dress too! I wish I had a picture of them jitterbuggin when they were young,,or Discoing,,lol.
So you know my Mom will be watching the show tonite too! And I am sure my Dad would be too if he was still alive. I like to believe that he is still dancing, and that one day I will see those two dancing together again.
Watch the show tonight,,Jerry Springer is going to be dancing,,that should be a hoot!!!
Have a great Evening!!
