On Taking a Deep Breath

Whew …. another Christmas is in the history book. I hope each of you had a holiday filled with joy and safety.

Our four hours at church playing handbells for two services went well. Christmas morning we traveled to my sister’s home several hours away. My wife met our new great nephew for the first time, plus we received the news that our youngest nephew’s engagement to a nice lady.

Since this is the week between two holidays, I thought a light start would be fitting. Consider this as the Tuesday Special Edition of  Monday Morning Entertainment. Since the video of Christmas clips from old movies delighted many of you, here is a clip of two classic dancers – Eleanor Powell and Fred Astaire. Enjoy …. and have a good week.

On Tap and Legs for Monday

I haven’t had much available time lately to visit my favorite bloggers, but I got lucky yesterday as I visited Beeze and discovered his post on legs. Now Beeze isn’t one who is normally not shy with his words, but in this post he let the images speak for themselves .. and being a guy, I appreciated his work.

Eleanor Powell, a dancing legend in the 1930s and 1940s, is tap dancing in this video … and I’m sure Beeze would approve. Have a good week everyone.

On a Dancer from the Past

With tonight being the start of Dancing with the Stars – Season 10 (and that we watch the show that got us started with ballroom dance), today is a perfect opportunity to look back at two dance legends: Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell.

They seem so effortless in this 1940 tap-dancing clip. Enjoy a look at the past and have a good week.
