Written for Kerry Gannon’s birthday by request from her students who chose the music.

It’s pretty appropriate too because time just seems to go so fast these days, in fact, the older

You get the faster time goes.  It would be terrific to have some in a bottle any time we felt

We needed a bit more of it wouldn’t it…….. Oh well, just another pipe dream.

Hope you enjoy the waltz… hope you get TIME  to enjoy it!  (-:


Oh, and if you don’t know who Kerry is, she is an instructor on

the Sunshine Coast here in beautiful Queensland. Her group is Kerry’s Linedancers

and if you are ever in her area you would be made very welcome at her classes.


                                             See you on the floor sometime...Jan
