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.
We are out there somewhere!
Dean Mora makes the announcements
Paul, Sue, Ron, Kristen, Donna and Bob up front
That's Bill, Holly, Sam & Brenda in the background!
Bill & Holly are in the thick of it!
A view from the veranda..perfect weather...
We could dance and not get over heated!
Right by the door!
Just plain cute couple!
Ron had to search all over for this fine specimens of cufflinks!
Encrusted with tiny diamonds, it looks like a paperclip...
We know the truth!
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.
We had the best seats in the house
A view from the veranda looking westward
The floor was busy all night long!
We had a super table; we watched all the goings on!
Bob and Ron check on the Nightlighters contingent
Careful Bob... Ron has been known to bite!
Dancing the light fantastic
Getting ready to go under my arm!
The line goes around the room!
Shall we or shall we not? That is the question!
The starting gate!
Brenda gots the giggles!
The secret wink!
Now we're talking
An old friend is back again!
We are up and moving!
Donna is on the move
Sharlene Choy and Paul danced this evening...
Ron and Kristen are getting into it!
Zipping around the floor!
Bob takes a quick rest!
