I think that many people here, and around us, need this . . .

Too right, Uncle Al.

Now with more pleasant temperatures and long evenings, after a long day looking 'down-in-the-mouth' at The Face I take a walk down to our little private garden lake where we now have two comfy thrones either side of the boat ramp. There I can sit and survey our little nature reserve filled with birdsong, just now including the cuckoo and during my stay more than likely I'll be favoured with a fly-past by our resident electric-blue kingfisher, by far the prettiest of our native birds.

The other extremely therapeutic relaxant for me is my trusty ol' Bechstein, which just recently has benefited from the magic administrations of my piano tuner/technician, so my caressing fingers are rewarded with a concert hall quality sound which nowadays I find increasingly difficult to produce. But never mind, Trying is half the battle and it's not a battle, it's pure pleasure. With the Drawing Room French doors open, our 10 year-old granddaughter recorded a bit of Bechstien from out in the garden and played it back to me. She's now into producing short amusing 'family' films and she included this recording as background. Not at all bad, I'm happy to say.

Well, this year I am determined to improve both my mental and physical health.... so I've just started a new pastime:

First class and it was really enjoyable, so I've signed up for five more classes initially.

Well SD, I can see why you enrolled! Dance s one way of keeping fit.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I'm curious about how he'll be accepted into the profession -- and how his fellow students feel about the matter.

Other than the occasional smirk or witty play on words, what can the harm really be -- especially if it makes him happy?

The woman in front of me is my neighbour and she wanted to try pole dancing and asked me if I'd like to go with her. When I got there we were all waiting outside for the teacher to turn up and immediately I got talking to the other students about their experiences of pole dancing etc. No-one even batted an eyelid. I will be going on different days so it will be interesting to see if the other groups are any different.

Love it!

Of note, we used to have here amongst us a male belly-dancer, so I suppose this is not too much of a stretch (OK, bad pun, I know) at all.

But will he get any TIPS stuffed into his outfit ?
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

You were always a brave one, SD and your latest dance foray is par for the course. A few months of that will banish the Covid Tum for sure. Bravo!
