Jean Stafford is terrific isn't she.... AND she's an Aussie too!
This is a fun dance - especially the kick steps at counts 5,6,7,8 which are followed by the little hop/hitch steps. Exagerate them if your knees are good ......and play them down if they are not - that's up to you.

It's a year today since my dear old Dad died. It's a funny thing, but it feels like it was only yesterday that I sat at the hospital and waited in vain for him to come out of theatre....... and yet it seems like 10 years since I last saw his face.  Time is sure a funny thing!  In actual fact, Dad is never very far away from because I hear his 'words of wisdom' in my mind very regularly . That's the good thing about knowing someone so well that you know exactly what they would say in any given situation... you never really lose them.  Hope you know what I mean.
See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
