I know I'm always raving on about country music, but I couldn't
resist the urge to write a few line dances to celebrate the new Australian
musical Mamma Mia, which opens in June 2001.  Gee I enjoyed writing these dances!  It brought  back so many memories from the past. Does music do that for you?  I only have to hear something from the past and immediately I am back there. Bill Haley puts me straight back into irridescent coloured socks and  rope petticoats - yuk, but the memory is nice. Those were the good old days,  yet I'm sure they are not the same good old days that I used to hear my Mum 'n Dad talk about!  Funny about that......
I wonder if the young 'uns of today will ever have a 'good old days' that
See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
