Fun Through The Years
I scanned through an old photo book I found yesterday,
And pulled out a few old pictures in there along my way.
We had lots of fun in these moments captured in time,
That I have written about in this story poem blog of mine.
I’m so glad we took lots of pictures through the long years,
As they bring back special memories and some joy tears.
I think this is the reason I use pictures to help tell my story,
As I remember all the good times we had with all their glory. Continue reading
Fred Shuffle, Beginning To End
Fred Shuffle was born in a parking lot in Branson, Missouri,
At Honeysuckle Inn at Rhythm Aces clog competition rally.
We wrote the dance to “Keep Your Hands To Yourself” one day,
By the Georgia Satellites just messing around there at play. Continue reading
Clogging Competition Images
When our family competed in clog dance competition,
We had images made after we won on our expedition.
I have compiled some images here for family review,
To help us remember when those old times were new. Continue reading
Back when we were dancing with the Rhythm Aces,
Ellis and Brenda lived in a nice Grand Lake bank place,
Each Halloween they had a big chili cook out so very great,
Where all the guests dressed up in costumes at Grand Lake. Continue reading
Drifting Back Again
Pam worked yesterday teaching 5th graders again,
So I was home all by myself kind of bored in the den.
I asked Alexa to shuffle Bob Will’s songs on Prime,
And that Western Swing music started playing so fine. Continue reading
Will I Be Missed?
I sometimes wonder if I’ll be missed at all when I’m gone,
We made lots of friends out there younger having big fun,
But most have gone on as other interests they did seek,
As I’m not sure many people will remember this old antique. Continue reading
Dressing Up Funny
I think we all have part of us that likes to dress as clowns,
To have some fun and take away other people’s frowns.
This started in me at about age 34 and grew from there,
To the point that I would often cause people to stare. Continue reading
Aces Party Time
Occasionally the Rhythm Aces got together for big fun,
To celebrate Aces clogging team success on the run,
After we won many trophies at the Silver Dollar City Park
At the National Clogging Competition by hitting the mark. Continue reading
I was looking through a few old pictures I just found,
And I thought I would write a poem of some renown,
About friends and family from the country and the town,
That we do love from the friendships that we found. Continue reading
Square dancing and clogging made me move my feet,
To that hoedown sound of that old time fiddle beat.
We moved fast to the fiddle music that sounded so sweet
While having a great time dancing on the balls of our feet. Continue reading
