1920's Sayings: Giggle water: liquor, alcoholic beverage

The Dance Bagins (Page Eight)

It's 6:00 PM and time to throw caution to the wind! We have three tables which was perfect for the evening! The music was magnificent and the dance floor excellent! Let the fun begin!

We turn back the clock. Remember" The 1920s is known as the Jazz Age and Roaring Twenties. The most important consumer product of the 1920s was the automobile. With low prices the Ford Model T cost just $260 in 1924 and generous credit made cars affordable luxuries at the beginning of the decade. Prohibition banned the manufacture and sale of alcohol.

The 1920s in the United States, called "roaring" because of the exuberant, freewheeling popular culture of the decade. The Roaring Twenties was a time when many people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards.

Flappers were a generation of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior.

The black lab seemed to love the water!

Did You Know? - Labrador retrievers were bred to be the perfect water dogs: They have water-resistant double coats that provide insulation, and their short fur keeps them warm but doesn't drag them down when it gets wet. Their webbed toes facilitate speedy swimming. Fishermen used the dogs to bring in nets, pull ropes between boats, and recover escaped fish.
