  • VFW Balance

    January 13th, 2007
    dance
    Bob McQuillen played for the Scout House dance on thursday. He was good and fun to dance to. The dance was very good and in the dance before the break the energy felt just right for a VFW balance. We were coming around to the partner balance and just before I was going to shout "balance" someone else did. Which was awesome; people were together and enjoying the dance the same way I was. At the break, though, Bob called us up to the edge of the stage "get on up here you youngsters! I want a word with you." I thought he was going to chew us out for stamping so loudly over his excellent piano playing, but instead "you might be able to tell I've been around for a while, but I've never seen anything so cool as that damn balance." Much fun.

    VFW balance: Taking the same amount of time as a standard balance (four counts) people stamp with both feet (well apart) and tap their heels together in the air as "stamp stamp stamp tap stamp", though the timing is more like (counting eight pieces) "s-ss-ts-". I think I first saw it in 2003 at the VFW, but I'm not really sure; I wasn't dancing often yet.

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
