Dancing in Market Square

Mauri was talking about age in the previous post. Yesterday Dominic and I attended a Tea Dance in Market Square. This is the second year this event has been held. It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm. When we arrived at 2 pm the Square was packed with people of all ages. Chairs had been provided, the music was just starting, and before I even set my handbag down we were up and dancing. I sat beside a woman who was 92 but looked 80 or less. She was fresh looking, had a thick head of white hair and had just returned from a cruise. I met several other 90 year olds, all fit and well, some of them you probably all know, but I won't name names. It was a most enjoyable afternoon, with singers, Irish dancing, Scottish dancing, and of course the sequence dancing itself. Strawberries and cream were provided too. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one on 22nd August. We should have events like this more often. PS. I forgot to mention that it was all free.

For heaven's sake act your age woman , and not the size of your feet.

Who let you out of the kitchen anyway

Poor Dominic will pay for all this gallivanting.


Re: Dancing in Market Square

In answer to the questions of who paid for the Tea Dance, I haven't a clue, nor do I care. It was great. I imagine Lisburn & Castlereagh Council organised the dance.

LR, I have finally escaped the kitchen. Little baking is done now although I still have to make the essential 3 meals a day. Anyway, mind your own business.!!!!!!
