Dancin' The Night Away!

On Wednesday March 25th, Wally Bentt acted as the DJ for a Sock-Hop. Now some may not know what a Sock-Hop is. Well a Sock-Hop or plain old Hop is an informal dance for teen agers. It was commonly held at high schools and other educational institutions, often in the school gym or cafeteria. The term came about because dancers were required to remove their hard-soled shoes to protect the varnished floor of the gymnasium. The music at a sock hop was usually played from vinyl records, and sometimes presented by a disc jockey. Such music was usually 50s and 60s rock, what we now commonly call ‘Classic Rock.’ 

Did I say Teen Agers! Well we had forty some recycled Teen Agers dancing to tunes like Be-Bop-A-Lula, Hound Dog, Da Doo Run Run, La Bamba, and the Wooly Bully among many more. No we didn’t have a mirror ball, however Wally did have Apple’s iTunes Visualizer playing over the video projector!

Just Enjoying the Music.

Ray & Denise . . . Their Last Dance this Season!

After all that jiving, waltzing and plain old dancing going on, we needed a break half way through the evening. So Marj Herbig came up and sold off all of the remaining ice cream bars that she had left over. Those helped us make it through the second half OK.

We had some filtering away early to bed, but come the last dance at 10pm with Brook Benton’s “Rainy Night In Georgia” there was still a good crowd squeezing their sweethearts.
Scot . . . Come With Me!

Scot Had a Blast with Lorna!

Awe! Ain't They Cute Together!


Thanks all for coming. That was major fun! We will do more of these next year.

Red Hat Bunko

March 4th was the last Red Hat Bunko for this season.  And we all had such a great time.  You first sign in,  
and possibly win a "prize"... 
Four at a table and then you either WANDER OR LINGER - depending if you win or lose...
 
If you notice, Jeannette has a "purple" hat on, this means she has a birthday this month.  The only time you wear purple  on your head is your birthday month.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEANETTE... 






After Bunko, we all enjoyed Dairy Queen ice cream cake.  YUM YUM

Leisure World Card Room

It is always fun to get with friends at the Leisure World Card room - if you can find a table that is:
Many different games going on every night - Mexican Crazy Eight, Rummy Dummy, Joker, Poker just to name a few.  But there is one rule "No Whining".... Sometimes a birthday might be celebrated and sometimes we just share a dessert, but mostly we just share our friendship.
 
"Make New Friends, But Keep The Old"

Another Red Hat Outing

On February 24th, seventeen members of the Red Hat Ladies of Leisure went to the Schlitterbahn on South Padre Island for a Red Hat costume party. Some of the group dressed like the 50's.  All attending received a door prize, and Betty Dixon was the lucky winner of a throw! 
Poodles on our skirts or jeans and our socks, our painted up saddle (canvas) shoes, and scarves around our neck - what the heck we did had a great time. 
 Canvas shoes from the "dollar store" was purchased and painted to look like the real saddle shoes.
Everyone had a great time.

Phyllis Connett's Birthday

Last Sunday, February 15, 2015, was Phyllis Connett's birthday.  We won't tell how old she is, just that she will be older than Mary Gainer until April 15th. :)
Several friends and family celebrated in the card room before playing Pegs and Jokers.  Cake, nuts and mints were served and fun was had by all.

What is the birthday girl saying to Mary Bass that is so funny.
Probably saying I'm not telling how old I am, let everyone guess

Phyllis looks at the gifts she received and was very appreciative
We had so much fun, Phyllis, that I can't wait until your next birthday
How about you?
