From The Patio To The Ballroom

Rob recently posted this picture from the Country Cruisers‘ 2014 performance in Washington, D.C. before our competition.  Ah, what memories!!  It was such a kick to set up the video camera and dance our number in front of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Washington Monument in the background (portable speakers are so handy).  We had some…

Reflections on the Ranch

This past Saturday I returned to my roots and spent the evening dancing at the country dance bar formerly known as Cadillac Ranch, and now called Lucky Star.  Doesn’t sound too remarkable, does it?  Well, it was a major decision for me.  At that venue, I met my last two dance partners, led a dance…

Even though snow is predicted tomorrow, it's a beautiful sunshiny day today! I'm amazed at how my moods reflect the weather; now I really understand why people move south to escape Chicago's unpredictability. But hey; variety is the spice of life!  I know I'll see you all tonight at Tequila Roadhouse for dancing from 6…

Biba Dushi!

  My lasting memory of Aruba is its favorite saying, Biba Dushi, which means "Living the Sweet Life" in their colorful local language, Papiamento, which sounds as happy and lilting as you would think.  The island atmosphere is cheerful, and why not?  It's sunny and warm, with the sound of the ocean lapping the shore…
