FW (my hubby) and I attended an American Cancer Society fundraiser dance on Saturday evening at a nearby firehall. It was something I had been looking forward to for a while. But mostly, I was looking forward to a date night with my hubby, having a good time with old friends, socializing and dancing the night away to the sound of some good ol classic rock and roll music. Quite frankly, I was looking forward to regressing a little. After all, it had been a very long time since I went to a dance.
The dance was very well attended, and even though I had invited many friends to join us, we were only accompanied by my father-in-law (GD) and my step-mother-in-law. For blogging purposes, I will call my Step-MIL, Wonder Woman. She really is one fantastic lady. But, I'll save that for another post some other time. My friend Kim, the Dancing Hot Mama, also came to support the cause and to hang with us.
I had a fantastic time with FW. We danced, we sang, we laughed, we drank (responsibly). It was the perfect date night. The band, Bootleg played all my old favorites...Mustang Sally, Funky Town, Sweet Child of Mine and so many more! In fact, once upon a time, I was a Bootleg (Eclipse) groupie. My good friend is the lead singer and her dad plays the keyboard and harmonica. I used to hang out in their basement during band rehearsals many years ago.
I was most impressed with my 70-year-old father-in-law who danced the night away like he was a young, vibrant stallion. His beautiful and vivacious sidekick, WonderWoman complimented him very well, as they boogied til midnight without a single yawn or look of boredom from either one of them. I could tell from their smiles that they were enjoying themselves and I felt honored to be spending the evening with them. FW and I are seriously thinking that perhaps we should spend more double date nights with them. They like to have fun and they live life to the fullest every. single. day.
So, how bout it GD and Wonder Woman? Are you open Friday night for some more dancing?
GD is not really sleeping in this photo. Or, maybe he is sleeping and smiling at the same time!
