No dancing makes Amy a dull, moody and sad lady. Dance class finally starts up today after having the summer off because the studio was being rebuilt. I'm looking forward to class and some good laughs. Our instructor is a witty Irishman with a touch of arrogance. Martin was a former lead in the Lord of the Dance production and danced Michael Flatleys lead role. He's a great instructor and dancer. My opinion is that no one can dance like Michael Flatley though. By the way if anyone likes to read autobiography's Michael's book is very inspiring. I like Michael's spirit and arrogance. I enjoy stories about determined underdogs who come out on top. Add some sadness and poverty in the saga and it's even better. My girlfriend Maureen (yes you girl big trophy winner) is trying to convince me to compete in 2 weeks but I don't know if I can get my act together after not dancing or practicing for several months. I probably can execute a few dances but don't know if I want to compete. I'd prefer to sip an Irish beer and watch the other adults compete. The Irish/Scottish Festival in September is my all time favorite outdoor event. I am more Scottish than Irish and have made lots of Clan friends over the years. I can't wait to see everyone. The Scottish Clans have tents that I visit and am always offered a dram of whiskey of some sort which I pretend to sip. shhhh!
