Square Dance Reunion

We hosted a reunion of folks we used to square dance with in the late 1970's and early 1980's.  (We had to stop dancin due to my leg pains and weakness.) Our best pals The Hecklers  ;)) are our dear friends who we met when we first joined the group, and we been close ever since.  2 weeks ago I ran into another couple at the doctors office that I had not seen in awhile. (Where else do old friends continue to meet each other than at the health care places???) 
Anyhoo, I told these folks that the Hecklers were coming into town next week to stay 2 nights with us, and maybe we could get together then.  They said OK!  So after all was said and done we had called a few more people, and we got a reunion goin'.
18 of us had a gab fest, laughed a lot, got perturbed when we couldn't hear a damn thing, got helped out by those who can still hear well, got helped up outta low chairs and couches when our gettin-up got up and went, and in general had a great time!!
Two of our beloved widows agreed to be picked up and brought to the house for however long they could take all the noise, and they were troopers, probably pushing beyond their normal endurance!
God bless us everyone, and THANK YOU that we had a beautiful day and night of reunion!  (Today it is raining like mad.)  8 of us even stayed awake talking until after 10 PM.  So there, old age! Take that!

(ok, don't send me hate mail, friends, I be teasing you... even tho I AM just a kid compared to Ed.
 HI, ED! )
Thanks to those who drove almost 2 hours to get here. It sure was fun, and so great to see everyone!

A big thanks to you and Mz Heckler for putting this all together.. It meant so much to Ed and I. Ed said he is not sure that you are younger than he is...he wants to see your birth certificate. I told him you would probably show him yours when Obama shows us his:)
