Gees, that Connie Francis can mix it with the best of them, even after all these years!

This song was new to me and I do thank Sandy for sharing it with me, it’s lovely.

She said it makes her goosey—and I understand exactly what she means.. Me too!

Hope you think so too and that the dance appeals to you.  It is not hard once you learn it… just like most things in life. Hehehehe

See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
