Tiny Dancer

While in Spain, Opus and I took a course in Flamenco dancing. We had so much fun and really enjoyed ourselves. To our surprise, our teacher told us that we were naturals and asked us to be in her show the following Saturday night. We were honored and thrilled, but also nervous as we only had three days to put a routine together.

Opus decided to dance solo, but I opted to take a partner. Here are some photos of us on stage.

We had so much fun that night and can you believe that we got a standing ovation? Guess they have never seen a couple farm cats dance the Flamenco before! Our teacher was so happy by our performances that she offered us permeate spots in her show. We were honored by her request, but had to decline. As much as we loved Spain, Italy is home for us!

Very impressive dancing. We seem to take after Jan. Four left feet. Um, she only has two, but how many does one need to be a bad dancer?

::sniff, sniff:: The Packers have losted too! In overtime to the Ginormous team. Their field goal kicker finally was able to make one. Didn't help that Brett threw an interception in OT to give them field position.

Guess I will go have myself a good cry. Thanks for coming by to watch the game with me.
