Jim Reeves….. You either love him or hate him.

I love him and I know there’s a lot of people out there like me!

He was legend in his own time and that legend has only grown

since his death many years ago now.

 

This is a simple little dance.—but the last 8 counts will keep

your mind on the job. Hope you enjoy it.

 

See you on the floor sometime….  Jan
