Do you feel like dancing?

If you had been at Fletcher Park this past weekend listening

to Dashboard Blue

you would have DANCED! The music was AWESOME!

It made me want to come home and start a new playlist on my IPOD! Lots of my favorite songs such as…’Play that Funky Music’, ‘Under the boardwalk’, ‘Brown Eyed Girl’, ‘Ain’t no Sunshine’, and Margaritaville!

Song list HERE!!!

This is the Zumba to the Oldies group of ladies that meet right here in Fletcher every week at the Danceland ballroom! And they told me….come on…when Mustang Sally starts, come on up and dance with us!

And you know me….I DID! heehee! (I need to take lessons…obviously…I look like I am doing my ‘own’ dance!)

Do you love to dance, too? Enjoy your week!

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance…

I love seeing the picture of you dancing. You go girl. We love music and the celebration of life, dance and be merry. We are that, aren't we. I loved it. Thank you for sharing.

Wow, even a pony, and yes I too, love the little faces of the children.

Don't you just love those concerts in the open air. When we lived in Bend, Oregon we had concerts every Saturday during the summer. I loved it. Every thing from Salsa to Ragga and oldies but goodies. Just a little something for everyone. This coming weekend we will be having a concert too at the small Wooden Boat Show down at the docks in the park.
I will try and make it and take some pics too.
I saw you up there dancin or Zumbaing heheh. You are so great and I am so glad you are a friend to me.
Oh yea, I love the miniature horse too. That just seem to slip right past me the first time down the page. At first glance I thought it was a great dane. heheh

Hugs and blessings
