Another wonderful quote.....and a mini ramble

"I believe in kindness.....

also in mishchief.....

also in singing.....

especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed."

~~~~~

I have recently discovered Mary Oliver and this is her quote, one of many that I will be using in my blog, along with her poems. You can read her biography here if you would like to learn more about her.

The photos were taken by Kevin, one of our Corry 'family'. They show Gregg, Rose and I enjoying young people on the floor dancing to Y-M-C-A and yes, Rose and I are singing right along, doing a pretty good job of keeping up with the dancers while they moved their arms in the shapes of the letters in the song. Later we actually got on the dance floor when the DJ played The Twist, and yes the next day I felt parts of my body whine a little at each move I made but it was worth it. We were on The Spirit of Norfolk's dinner-cruise a few weeks ago, which as you can see was a whole lot of fun. Sometimes you just have to let go and enjoy the moment. My advice is to let your inhibitions fly out the window every once in a while, it's good for the soul.

Oh Denise you are such a game person to dance like that! The first time I encountered a YMCA dance/sing-along I slipped out. ;-)What a shame (on me!)

I love the pumpkin and your sandwich sound delicious.

But I missed your flower post ;-(
