Hi, Ria and Catherine, from the deep South. Catherine, I like that idea a lot - have a bash. Ria, you will be heading into the long nights in Alaska. I have been there in all seasons and they have the gloamin' in summer. Of course. winter is just the reverse and you turn on the lights in the afternoon. I love Alaska, still think of it as the last frontier. Now my daughter lives in Bainbridge Island, Washington, and I'm looking forward to seeing her there. Davy sent me a CD of Jimmy Connelly. I had never seen him and he was a rare tare. Ria, next time you visit your daughter, call me. Haven't been posting for a while. However, check in with all of you. Wouldn't be the same if I didn't. wub.gif

Cheers, Gemini. Next visit, we'll toast the Guide. biggrin.gif

Catherine, I got a good laugh at your shoes post. Reminds me of during the war when the shoe stores opened for a few hours and you had to scramble to make it on your lunch hour. You had to part with precious coupons. I was fitted with one shoe being too tight. No going back. I had to wear them. It was less coupons for clogs but I seemed to kick my ankles and I ended up wearing bandaids on my "painted" legs. You had to put the leg makeup on thick to keep out the cold and twisting around to draw the seam was quite an art. I bet I am the only one that remembers what we had to do during the war.
boots
Bunty, your wrong, I too remember drawing the seams on my painted stockings and yes, it was one helluva job, trying to get them straight. I also mind there was a theatrical supply shop where, if you took your own jar, you could buy this really thick, cream stage makeup which we used as pancake makeup...had to look glamourous to go to the Locarno. Did you ever try a mixture of bleach and amonia to lighten your hair? I bet you had a fancy cover for your gas mask case and carried it everywher as you were supposed too but the gas mask wasn't in it...just your makeup, comb, money etc. Those were the days
buntyq
Good to meet you, Boots. I was a bit on the shy side in those days and I didn't think I would get a dance at the Locarno with all the Yanks so I ended up at the Albert. Great dancing in those days. I remember dancing to one of the big bands in Green's playhouse. Does that jog your memory?
boots
Hi Bunty, Sure I remember Greens my second favourite dancehall after Locarno. Our group would stand just right of the bandstand and be very critical of every new band. Pretty cocky, I realise now. Joe Loss was a favourite also the Blue Rockets. Felix Mendohlson and his Hawaiian Serenaders would get a thumbs down. The Albert was a nice hall though I didn't go there often. I just had a hard time passing Locarno. I'd forgottn about the clogs til you mentioned them. They certainly wern't dainty, were they? Now if we two could get together, I bet we could have a wonderful trip down memory lane. rolleyes.gif
betty2
Ahh the Greens spent ma 21st therr dancin tae Jo Loss an that wis a few decades an merr away, great times tho .I also was a locarno dancer every friday night . Wis watchin the premiere o Richard Gere;s new movie "shall we dance"" seems its goat the younger generation lookin at ballroom dancin with interest. Am still oan tea ohmy.gif daen well !!!!

andypisces1
Did get to see joe loss at greens. I used to go to hammersmith palais on a regular basis when working in london. joe loss was the resident band there and he was terrific. After joe loss i would have to say my fav dance hall band was don smith at the oxford galleries in newcastle.God but in loved the dancin. I used to travel a lot. would be in a town for anywhere from three weeks to a year. When we would arrive in a new town my mates would ask for the best pubs. I would ask for the best dancin. Outside of glasgow the best places for dancin were newcastle, dundee and belfast.....cheers ....andra
betty2
Hi Andra seens it was the way back in the 50's that no matter where you went the dance halls were checked out. Tho only times I travelled were whilst on holiday' But what was popular then was the saturday bus runs and these were always to dance halls . used to love them and in those times The girls did'nt drink, oh how sweet and innocent we were rolleyes.gif

ye know catherine I jist dont understaun people the day, aboot a week ago ahm sittin' waiting tae go under wan o' they one lane bridges, noo there's a motor in front o' me when WHAM somebody slams intae me, she' hit mah freaking caur ah says tae mah pal, well ah goat oot and she's aw hysterical like I never saw you she says, noo I have a bliddy white minivan and she;s in wan o; they wee motors like a honda or something I was really surprised she didnt have any damage the way she slammed me, but she is yelling "its my fault I know its my fault" luckily naebody wis hurt and I didnae huv ony damage either, calm doon missus ah says, but you stopped she says, well hen ah couldnae go anywhere wi' that car in front o' me., but for that person to yell and holler at yer pal needs tae get a life, would luved tae have bin there. The kitchen ah did noo get this Juicy Fruit Passion, didnae know if ah wid like it, but it really is nice, makes the kitchen look nice and warm, the living room thank goodness only two walls to paint, and I am doing that in Glosrious Gold, the rest of the walls are panelled if you remember but its the taking doon aw the pictures and such, like you getting started is the problem no quite ready yet tongue.gif but once ah open that can o' paint then there's no stopping me, having company coming in another two weeks so i have tae get a move oan

Mind ye, as ah say, am no' wan tae gossip but a wotched him ahin the curten an' a saw him goin' ower tae that wee mags hoose an' she looked very ajitated. Ah widnae be too certain as tae whit she told him tho' an' a widnae be wan tae gossip but ahd keep an eye on her.

Great news Mags, Congratulations. So the weather's getting you down, (me too) but getting news like that can help cheer you up. I'm beginning to feel winter will never end. It's snowing like crazy right now and the forecast is for more snow and dropping temps. again. Matybe Leeinaus can send us some warm breezes.
