Men!  Don’t leave em alone for too long or they get lonely, as this song says. 

If you think they are lonely for YOU, don’t be surprised when you find out

that it wasn't you they missed, just the sex! 

Oh how good it is to be so old and wise….. But I wasn’t always!!


The dance is easy but it will test brand new dancers.  Keep practising!

See you on the floor sometime………….. Jan
