A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance. Ecclesiastes 3:4

I looked through my picture files and could not find a good dance picture for the here I am looking foolish trying to re-enact a ballet dance step! Truth of the matter is that I have two lead feet! The weeping willow tree was very obliging and let me hang on to it as I am standing on my toes. This was not easy believe me, when you are 65 years old...(Almost 66:) I had a good laugh afterward, but I may be mourning tomorrow morning when I won't be able to get out of bed..I did several of these practice shots and this is the only one that shows me still on my toes before the timer went off:) Today I went shopping with some friends and then later we had an early birthday celebration for me before we leave Sept 1st to spend a week with my mother. It was a fun day getting out with good friends. I previously posted this picture for the Dancing theme but then decided to post a different entry instead that I liked better on my next picture. I appreciate your comments anyway. Thank you much.

    Once again, I cannot believe you are 65 years old, you got good genes from your Mum who certainly does not look her great age..

    Beautiful pose and setting. You certainly don't look like you have two lead feet.
