I think of all the places I’ve been…. I went to many fun places on School Lunch Conventions.… Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Texas, Hawaii, and many more. I’d like to go back to some of these places but I can’t say any of them are my favorites. Just one visit to any one of them just doesn’t do it.
My Favorite Place
I finally decided that my favorite place was any place Ross & I could dance. The reason I went with Ross at first was because I knew he was a good dancer. But, not me…. I didn’t know how. He had a challenge teaching me to dance. On our honeymoon we danced at Banff Springs Hotel in Canada. We took dancing lessons… fun, fun, fun.
We joined the Elks Club so we could go dancing every week. One of the first times we were there, Ross twirled me around, let go of me, and I went flying across the floor…. and he just kept on dancing The man and his wife who picked me up turned out to be some of our best friends. He liked to jitterbug. He wanted to dance the fast ones and sit out the slow.
It was fun to go to Park City. A three piece band played lots of polkas. I know they played them just for us. They kept playing faster and faster just to see how long and fast we could go.
One time we went to Barstow, to the wedding reception on Marilyn & Byron. My mom and Pam went with us. They had a dance band that played our kind of music. Ross was having a good time dancing with Byron’s sister. Mom walked out to the middle of the floor, tapped Ross on the shoulder and said, “Pam is ready to dance with you now.” His answer…. “Pam will just have to wait.”
When we retired we planed to go as many places as we could find to dance, but it didn’t turn out that way. Ross had both knees replaced and that was the end of my favorite places.
**Can't you just see Grandma sliding across the floor while Grandpa just waltzes on? It makes me laugh imagining it.
