Dancing Queens Again

You are not going to believe this, but last night Jesse and I went line dancing. How does that grab you – like a hairy hand in the dark? Last week the Junk Diva told me that she and some ladies had heard about the line dancing class and were going, but I could not make it last week. They reported that it was great fun and good exercise. Last night I was just settling down in my recliner after a small dinner of etouffee, when Jesse called and reminded me of the dance class. I had just mentioned to Toby that since we had not been riding our bikes, I really needed to be doing some sort of exercise. Hot Diggity Dog – dance class might just be the answer! And so I met Jes at the class.

We got to the class a few minutes late, and the room was filled with long lines of ladies – quite a few were from my church along with their daughters. My buddies squealed and hollered when Jes and I arrived – what fun! The lady teaching the class was about my age. She taught line dancing very well and had a great, friendly personality. We danced from 6:30 to 8:30 – my legs were aching. We did lots of country-type dances and then did some hip-hop type dances. Yeah, I kept up. I probably did not look as good as Jesse, but danced pretty well for an old lady.

Duncan has a place called the Simmons Center, which is a very nice community gym/spa type place. The SC has several gyms, racquetball gyms, weight machines, aerobics classes, and swimming pool (GBN1 appropriately calls it the Swimmons Center). A few years ago, I joined the SC and went to step class. It was a very nice place, but the people were very much like being part of the Country Club. They just seemed to have more than their share of whiny rich people and anal-retentive SC workers. So I quit the SC. Then a few months later, Jesse and lots of her buddies joined. Ashley is now teaching step class. I have been considering joining again, but I hate the Country Club attitude.

Now last night, I had a great time dancing with the common folk – the hair dressers and moms and fat old ladies – laughing and hooting and teasing each other when they had never even met before. It was really a fun time. Too bad the art guild meets on Thursday nights – that might put a kink in my dancing days.

Sounds like you had a great time! I love to dance but these days it's only in my mind! I think the last time I saw you, you were kicking your heals up at a WF country dance place off of Kemp or Kell I believe. Long time memory shot! Oh to have good knees again!

Hip-hop line dancing? Who'd a thunk it? But I suppose you can line-dance to just about anything, eh?

"And now... a little Mozart!" ;-)

Fat old ladies, HMMMMMMMMMM, I think that comment fits my shoes! Dancing shoes. It is great fun, works your body and your mind.

Becky said...

Sounds like fun! I used to love to dance, but haven't in years. Around here, there is no place good to go dancing in--at least no place I would want to be.

Ah, what fun! I always wanted to be a dancer like in the movies or a jockey! I wonder if we have such a group here, hmmmm. I fit the fat old ladies part!

What do you think of www.good-handbag.com for Louis Vuitton? Check out the first look at the Louis Vuitton ads featuring Madonna! It was rumored that Madonna would be appearing
in Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009 ads and those rumors proved to be true. The shots were taken in a French Bistro setting and shot by Fashion photographer Steve Meisel. After

watching a Madonna concert, Marc Jacobs decided to choose Madonna as their new image model.Designer Marc Jacobs said, I just blurted out, I think we should do Madonna. I was totally just blown away by it, and moved by her performance, by what she had to say, and her energy.Reportedly with this deal Madonna bagged $10 million for the campaign, but that is also said to be a rumor. http://www.good-handbag.com

Louis Vuitton www.good-handbag.com
Born August 4, 1821, died February 27, 1892

opened a luggage store in Paris in 1854. More than a century later, Vuitton's handbags and luggage are now a status symbol

around the world and are often looked to in the world of fashion.

Vuitton moved from his hometown of Anchury, Jura, France in 1835 at the age of fourteen. Two years later, he arrived in

Paris and started working with Monsieur Marechal making trunks.

The Louis Vuitton Company
Early Days (1854-1892)
Louis Vuitton did not succeed until just after his death. Vuitton started with flat luggage. This luggage was lightweight,

and was bought by France's Empress Eugénie in its first year of sale. In 1860, Vuitton was forced to relocate, where he

expanded due to increasing demand. 7 years later, in Louis Vuitton won a bronze medal at the World's Fair. In 1871, Vuitton

gained ground in the industry although many of his works were getting copied. In 1880, his son Georges married. On their

wedding day, Louis gave over control of the business to Georges. Only 3 years later, Louis became a grandfather as Georges

son Gaston-Louis Vuitton was born. In 1892, Louis Vuitton started selling handbags. On February 27th, Louis Vuitton died.

Georges now had full control of the company


Golden Age of Louis Vuitton (1893-1936)
After Louis' death, Georges made Louis Vuitton a worldwide corporation. Just a year after Louis died, Georges displayed

Louis Vuitton at the 1893 World Fair in Chicago, Illinois. Georges continued to run Vuitton well as it spread

internationally and his book "Le Voyage" [The Journey] was published in 1894.

In 1896, nearing the turn of the century, Louis Vuitton put out its trademark canvas. The 'Monogram Canvas', as it came to

be called is shown to the right, as it uses various symbols and the Louis Vuitton logo, LV. Georges then sailed to the

United States, in which he toured various cities such as New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. He sold Vuitton products

during the visit.

In 1899 Georges exhibited Vuitton products at the maiden Paris Auto Show.

At the turn of the century, in 1900, Georges Vuitton was given the honor to set up the "Travel Items and Leather Goods"

section of the 1900 Paris World Fair. In 1901, the Louis Vuitton Company introduced the 'Steamer Bag', a small handbag to

be kept inside Vuitton luggage trunks.

3 years later, in 1904 Georges chaired the jury for the St. Louis World Fair. In the same year, the Louis Vuitton company

introduced a new line of trunks that have special compartments for items such as perfumes, clothing, and other goods.

In 1906, Georges' son Gaston-Louis married Renee Versille and Louis Vuitton introduces trunks for automobiles.

In 1914, the Louis Vuitton Building opens in Champs-Elysees. The building was the largest travel-goods store in the world

at that time. Store locations open in New York, Bombay, Washington, London, Alexandria and Buenos Aires as World War I

begins.

In 1924, only eight years after the end of World War I, the 'Keepall' is invented. This bag foreran the duffel bag in a

travel bag for light travel to keep necessities in.

In 1929, the seventy-fifth anniversary of Louis Vuitton, a toiletry case is introduced specifically for opera singer Marthe

Chenal. It could fit bottles, brushes, mirrors, powder boxes and more toiletries.

In 1931, Louis Vuitton introduced exotic bags such as a handbag of crocodile skin, as well as elephant hide handbags for

the Colonial Exhibition.

In 1932, Louis Vuitton introduced the Nóe bag. This bag was made for champagne vinter to transport bottles.

In 1933, the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag was introduced.www.good-handbag.com

Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote
I am constantly drawn to cream colored leathers. Browns and whites can be harsh at times, so adding a bit of cream to tone
it down is the perfect option. And whites do not have to stop being worn after Labor Day, in fact winter whites are
perfectly luxe for the season. But I typically opt for a white that is creamier. And the soya cream leather on the Miu Miu
Wooden Handle Tote offers a feeling of winter resort. The wooden handle does give the bag a very resort feel, but would

look perfect in a more tropical area (like South Florida). The wooden handle may not fit on your shoulder well, and even if
it did it may grind into your shoulder a bit. Of course Miu Miu added in an optional detachable shoulder strap. I adore
this bag, adore the color of the leather, and adore the wooden accent. Buy through (Buy through http://www.good-
handbag.com/miu-miu/miu-miu-handbag.html,Net A Porter for $142.)
