Dancing, Doc?

If you are unwilling to do the dirty deed, I shall try. I would really hate to do it, though.....or would I?

I betcha champagne would work well with this tactic. Especially if the animals in the house like to clean up an effervescent liquid off of the floor.

Hic..

subject in that previous post!

Ay yi yi, the pressure!! Yes, Dr. Dolphin is still willing and able to perform this great experiment. However, my exciting social life has delayed this once in a lifetime event.

The party in the parking lot at the hardware store was a blast, and then we went over to the Village Grind with friends and closed it down. (And in Wrightwood, that means 10pm)

I took some video at the hardware store for you to see the way we celebrate here in our tiny town. Country music, soulful blues, and dancing with your girlfriends because the guys don't dance. And does anyone remember the thread about old people dancing and how special it is?

Well I had mentioned a couple in my community that dance at every event. He's 92 and she's 88, and I got some video of them as well. Moving slower, but still moving and still in love. I've got to try to figure out how to upload it and let you all see.

And, I will document my wine/shoe/no corkscrew experiement with video as well. Patience, my dear readers, patience.

Well, you do know, Doc, if you don't succeed, . . . try try again...hee hee..How very generous of Anno, the scientist, to offer her services.

This may be one of those rare cases of: -
patient dead,
but doctors
very
very
happy.

Here's some video to hold you until I do that doggone expirement. I want Dan to help me video tape it, and he's outside planting flowers. Soon...

Here's some action from last night:

This is Margaret Weeks, dancing with someone from the crowd; very short clip. You'll see my hubby at the end:

And this is Margaret and her husband Jim, ages 88 and 92, respectively:

Chatty,
Sounds like fun. Have a great time! Today is my brother's birthday.

DD,
I love those type events, like the one in front of the hardware
store. That elderly couple was cute!
