I also love that video. Someone who loves dance did such a great job on that. It is synced so well, even the lips sync with words sometimes.

I recall, when very young, seeing Gene Kelly tapdancing to Singin' In The Rain (on TV). The exhilaration was infectious and I took up tapdancing (much later on, as an adult)...well, for a while! (Hard work!)

First husband was the chef, second the fisherman. First one was from the Lakes District in Northern England. I managed to outlive both of them.

What made me smile today was something quite odd and not usually found to be amusing.

I was about to enter a food store when I saw an elderly lady leave. The alert buzzer system went off as she passed it. She was holding a packet of smoked salmon....not even hiding it in a bag!

She walked away in a kind of dithery manner...
I wasn't sure whether she might have been afflicted with something.

I suppose it was her age and not hiding the produce that made me gasp and chuckle!

She probably picked it up to look at it and forgot to put it back down.

My great-granddaughter (who is 4) calls my daughter-in-law grandma and she calls me grandmother. I love it.

My oldest granddaughter got very confused when she was trying to learn what to call me. She ended up with Gana. Gran from some of the kids and Nana from some of the others. I swear all 17 kids have their own name for me.

Now if I can just remember what my real name is.

Grandmother is an impressive title to bestow on someone, by such a little tyke.
