I've Been Invited...

by The Olde Bagg  to tell some secrets I have been keeping about myself.

I would say I love animals but I haven't kept that secret very well.  So I guess I will just have to spill the beans, drum roll, please...

When I was a young lady, not yet married, I would do readings at church when the preacher could not come.  My favorite was The Creation.  I also sang "specials" at the church on Sunday nights.

When same said preacher married us, there was a part in the ceremony that said, "God bless their affections" and the preacher said, "God bless their infections"!  We were rolling in laughter before the ceremony was over.

I like chocolate, oh, wait, you already know that too!

I shall have to think about the third secret, y'all already know my life history.  Oh, wait, I know!!!  I love ball room dancing...I bet you would have never guessed that one.  Sadly, I have never been able to convince my husband about the up side to ball room dancing so I shall just dream...or remember.

Bag Lady Blathers is it???? You are too funny. See there, I did not know that you did the church readings, or that you had infections at your wedding or you and I are in the same non ballroom dancing boat rowing to the beat of one, two, three.
Thanks for doing the award stuff...now pass it on to some other victims...er folks.

My son takes ball room dance lessons with me. Hubby won't get near it, but the boy loves to dance.

I like ballroom dancing myself too. My father taught me. I haven't done it in years. There's no one to dance with. I dance in my dreams, just like you. I do have good memories of dancing the walz.

My dad used to have me stand on his feet while he did some fancy ballroom moves....after 55 years I still recall how cool that was

Awwwww, you are such a romantic. I can just picture you all dressed up like Cinderella ball dancing with your beloved. :)

Maybe you could tell him that is all you want for Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary is to go ball room dancing together?
