 This is a pretty fast waltz….. It kept me going anyhow! 

Actually, these days, it doesn’t take much to do that!   Impending old age sucks big time!!!  The mind says go  go go...but the body sometimes disagrees.  Know what I mean???

 

But I digress….. Back to the dance….. The steps are not hard but the speed of the

music makes it more difficult.  It’s such a pretty song and I love the name… do

they actually make wine out of dandelions… does anyone know???

I suggest that you do not drink any kind of wine before attempting this dance

because it will make you giddy enough on it’s own… and it hasn’t got any turns in it!  (-:

Save the wine for the celebration after you finally master the dance.

Hope you enjoy it……. the dance I mean  hehehehe

 

                                            See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
