When You are 92 years old . . .

29 Jan

Just the kind of inspiration I needed today!

My brother Rick sent this to me.  It’s been sitting unopened in my in-box (along with about 2000 other e-mails!).

I don’t know if Rick remembers that when he was about 5 and I was 10 we both took tap dancing lessons.  He was pretty cute.

I can still do the shuffle hop step, shuffle ball change and hop shuffle, hop shuffle, hop shuffle, jump  (I leave out the jump!)

Rick, here’s to 30 more years of tapping!  (We’d better sign up for lessons with Nana Louise)

P.S.  Rick is a realtor in Denver, Colorado.  

Please contact him to buy or sell your house.  

He will use the money he earns to pay for our tap lessons.

    Nana is so amazing! And I’m so touched at how much her grand child obviously adores her!
    To have such an inspiration as your grandmother, how wonderful.

    She sure didn’t look 92 years old! You think that’s her natural hair color…hehehe
    What a beautiful woman.

    If I had a house in Colorado, I would definitely get your brother to sell it so as to fund those tap dancing lessons!
    Does Max tap dance or is he more into salsa or ballroom dancing? He would audition for dancing with the stars — he’d just have to pick a good star to be paired with — Lassie is a bit old, Rin Tin Tin has gone to dog heaven, Scooby-Doo is too wacky, Brian (the dog on Family Guy) would be fun — but would they allow same sex dancers? I’ve run out of dog stars — Max probably knows a whole lot more, living in California and everything.
    Cha, Cha, Cha Ciao!
