Our little dancer...

Gracie and I love to dance... Well, to be honest, I've somewhat ambushed her, and made her watch dancing with me, HA! I love to watch , "So You Think You Can Dance", and, as a result, Gracie really seems to enjoy it now, too. (I don't let her watch other TV, I try as much as possible to give her actual hands-on experiences instead-- But this show is my one exception)
Anyhoo, she has a couple of "dance costumes", and I think she knows they are like the ones that they wear on the show, and yesterday she tried on her first leotard. She seemed to enjoy the whole experience, which includes looking at herself in Grammie's full length mirror..... WHAT A HOOT !!! She is such a JOY !!!

The first official meeting of the RBFC (retired best friends club) took place with the charter members present, Kris, Lisa, Marlene, Joyce and Sandy,(and Gracie, too, as an honorary member) at the St. Louis Bread Company... Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008.
The purpose of the group is to live up to motto : Live Healthy, Spend Wisely, and Enjoy our time together.... We will meet each month to that end, with each member setting up the schedule for an event (walk in the park, trip to the zoo, a class, some other activity, or just a fun outing) It sounds like fun !! Here's our first official PIC, and the woman who took our picture for us, HA !
If you have a cool suggestion for us, just email me @
thanks, Sandy

What a Game !!! Fantastic !! Full of energy and electricity in the air ...
First we went to a MIZ ZOU party at the Maulin's, and then the game later in the evening...
We had excellent seats, and during half time, our son Ted got us passes to go onto the field, and we loved it !!!
By the way, we saw over 90 points scored, and the Missouri University Tigers defeated the fighting Illini !!! A very close and exciting game !!
