Thought I'd shake things up by sharing a 1911 ad for St. Julien Claret. Back in the days before air conditioning there was nothing more refreshing than a wine cooler after a little strenuous dancing.

Haven't been posting much lately...no excuse really, just haven't, but Gary and I have both re-committed to our blog. Don't need to as far as dancing goes...we've been doing that as much as usual. :-)
So...December 2013 was a fun and busy dancing' season. First, we tried the Paramount Christmas Tree Dance in Anderson, Indiana. The setting was lovely; decorated trees lined the dance floor creating an enchanted space. My parents came with us. We had a good time, but would probably not go back; t'was a bit ballroomy for us, aka, flying ballroom arms and we WILL do this pattern even if it runs people off the floor. We still had fun though.
Our beloved Terry Lee and the Rockboogie band came to our Moose club this December! And while not specially a holiday event, he did play some Christmas songs, and, well, he's Terry Lee so he was fab. Hopefully he will come again to Moose Lodge 500.
We also attended the annual Indy Dancer Christmas Dance at the old Stutz building downtown Indy. It was great to see the old cars, we had fun dancing, but the floor was concrete and the sound system not so great. Also very crowded, as many people love these events. We're thinking if the dance isn't in a large venue next year we will probably skip.
New Year's Eve was a return to Raleigh, Indiana, where it costs ten bucks a person and a covered dish to get in. The evening was magical. My parents came with us, which adds extra sparkle to any event. The decorations were charmingly old fashioned, the people, as always, welcoming. Ahhhh...a perfect way to start 2014.
