But First A Few Pronouncements
"OK, how do we turn on the mike??"
NO, we are NOT starting the announcement with Karaoke.... or Kittyokey
"OK, who dropped the microphone??"
It's good.... I found it....
Does he look worried???? Just wait to see what he has to say
The audience takes it all in
The audience is captivated
The room is ablaze with his eloquent speech
Did Someone Say Mixer???
Go-round and go-round they go
Did You Know? - A go-around is an aborted landing of an aircraft that is on final approach.
The term arises from the traditional use of traffic patterns at airfields. A landing aircraft will first join the circuit pattern and prepare for landing in an orderly fashion. If for some reason the pilot decides not to land, he can simply fly back up to circuit height, and complete another circuit. The term go-around is still used even for modern airliners, though they may not use traditional circuit patterns for landing. Should the aircraft have already the wheels on ground when the maneuver is initiated, then it would be called a balked landing.
Suddenly everyone stops and grabs a partner
We meet new friends and talk to others....
Sometimes we learn new steps
Every dancers friend
Did You Know? - Since medieval times, dubbin, a waxy product, was used to soften and waterproof leather; however, it did not impart shine. It was made from natural wax, oil, soda ash and tallow. As leather with a high natural veneer became popular in the 18th century, a high glossy finish became important, particularly on shoes and boots. In most cases, a variety of homemade polishes were used to provide this finish, often with lanolin or beeswax as a base.
In the 19th century, many forms of shoe polish became available, yet were rarely referred to as shoe polish or boot polish. Instead, they were often called blacking (especially when mixed with lampblack), or simply continued to be referred to as dubbin. Tallow, an animal by-product, was used to manufacture a simple form of shoe polish at this time. Chicago, Illinois, where 82% of the meat consumed in the United States was processed in the stock yards, became a major shoe polish producing area for this reason.

Meanwhile Back At The Ranch
Sue and Paul cool the camera down
Chair dancing... A new Olympic sport
Sue heard a waltz....
Around the floor we go...
Waltzing keeps one fit as a fiddle (This expression dates from at least the 1600s. A fiddle that is fit is well-tuned
and in good shape and can play terrific music. So , it was combined with the word 'fit' to become an alliteration.
Kathy and Tom practicing their 1,2,3's
The waltz is a favorite of almost everyone
"No follow me dear"
Color coordinated! Glad to have the Colby's as new members

Jan finds out that Herbie has a brand new plastic beard
Did You Know? - A beard is the collection of hair that grows on the chin, cheeks and neck of human beings. Usually, only pubescent or adult males are able to grow beards. However, women with hirsutism may develop a beard. When differentiating between upper and lower facial hair, a beard specifically includes the moustache, which refers to hair above the upper lip and around it.
Over the course of history, men with facial hair have been ascribed various attributes such as wisdom, sexual virility, masculinity, or a higher status; although beards may also be perceived to be associated with a lack of general cleanliness and a loss of refinement.
"So, where did you get the plastic beard? It looks to real!"
Saying good night
One last smile for the evening
