Good morning, lt.
Imagine the dread I had opening this thread, knowing
how poorly I've been doing with these this week.

Now imagine this....Me doing the "SNOOPY DANCE"!

#1 - didn't know.
#2 - ok - love to watch her talk!
#3 - ok - loved her as Emma Peel - The Avengers
(wish they'd do the reruns)
#4 - ok
#5 - ok - love, love, love those spicy fritters!
#6 - ok - I thought I'd throwup if my mother watched
that performance one more time! Although
I liked it at first. (Too much of a good thing)
#7 - nope


I'll be thinking of Emma, fritters and mom for the rest of the day, while doing the "Snoopy Dance"

Thanks, lt.

i know no dames (but i do know a few skirts ), and i got the rest.

btw, step dancing looks like it was invented while waiting in line for the bathroom, after a few pints.

.........And I think that, when the line moves too slowly, the term "RiverDance" becomes pertinant.
