    Which of your five senses diminish as you get older?
    Quote from GrumpyRN
    Think I would have said; "any sense of boundaries."

    Where I live, square-dancing (and Contra dancing) most certainly is hip!

    [Say, wasn't there a war-mongering group in Iran that was dubbed the Contras, somewhere back in the Reagan days or there-abouts?]

    Gets worse; in UK we don't use that system.
    European size 41 = UK size 7.

    Thank you for putting me in one of your posts - love it.

    I laughed so much I nearly wet myself - superb.
    But yep, that about sums it up.

    The Contras were resistance fighters in Nicaragua. The Reagan Administration was sold arms to Iran (despite an embargo) to raise money for the Contras, thus it was referred to as the Iran-Contra affair.

    Thank you for that clarification! I knew Iran and Contra were two words that were hooked together somehow, but could not remember the details.

    And as a previous patient would've said, "Nicaragua, Iran; same thing, only different."

    Sunday afternoon I'm going to a sing along at a synagogue that has square dancing on Wednesday evenings.
    I really like the people and it is open to all ages and religions, but you have to sign up for 12 weeks.
    I would rather be home with my husband. It takes practiced to dance so I understand why they want a commitment.

    In 1964 our family drove cross country in a Volkswagen van to the World's Fair in New York.
    We stopped at a camp ground at Lake O The Ozarks. There was a square dance that night. Our Daddy joined the band with his trumpet and we teen and twenty something girls danced.
    Our family had the only Black people there. Everyone was so nice! We had fun!

    herring, I also went to the World's Fair in 1964! Maybe we passed each other entering or leaving some pavilion at some point! I would've been the one who bought banana chips and was disappointed that they had no SALT on them!

    I was also at the 1964 World's Fair! Granted I was only 3, but I do have some vague memories of the trip.

    I went to the World's Fair in Seattle in 1962, I must have been 4. I don't remember much other than a particular carnival ride called the "Wild Mouse."
