The dancing is fun, even though I'm just learning, and everyone is so happy, smiling, getting a workout...
Then the gentleman thanks the lady and escorts her back to where he first invited her.
Would that more men and women would learn dancing, and regularly particpate in such gatherings! The men get to dance with lovely ladies who will always say "yes" when asked, and the women get the pleasure of being invited to spend a few moments in the company of a dashing gentleman.
Seattle offers so many venues for social dancing and lessons! I hope to spend more time enjoying this lovely pastime here.

- "So... are you... Maaaaarrge... ?"
- "Hey, watch out where you swing that sword!"
- "Cool Minnie Mouse ears!"
- "Um, who or what are you, exactly?"
But it's funny. It's nearly impossible to learn so many new names, so I tend to remember them by their costumes. ROBOT grew up in the Philippines; 30's DETECTIVE GIRL is training to work at a beauty salon; BUDDY THE ELF was the host; and so on.
One fun connection: WHOOPEE CUSION is currently studying marketing management, and wants to talk business with me about doing voiceovers! Cool.

See Sam contemplating his design, my sketches beginning to come together in the foreground.
My finished lantern, inspired by the Picasso exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. (Hope to go next week to actually see it.)
And here's the entire lineup:
Happy Carving to all!

After rapelling down an ampitheater (just dangling in mid-air, no wall to kick off of!) we finally found our climb. It took about 5 hours for the three of us to make it up the 4 pitches, but it was great!
Tony lead the trad climbs, I "cleaned," and Bob followed up the rear. I was glad these guys welcomed me on their trip, but I think I didn't spoil their fun too much!
The great lodge where we stayed. We slept in the dorm-style bunkbeds in the loft!

Just love the design in this building.
I even got to play one of the pianos around town for the "Play Me, I'm Yours" gig.
(I also played one at Jungle Jim's and one at a Graeter's, too!)
