"I could dance with you til the cows come home. On second thought, I’d rather dance with the cows until you come home." – Groucho Marx

I love life. There are so many things, little things, that are amusing when we come across them every day. The problem is that too many of us don’t take the time to see all those little things around us and live life to its fullest. I try to do just that. For the longest time I held back on the things I wanted to do as I was afraid of upsetting people. I was also afraid of going out and doing them on my own…like I needed a companion – a partner in crime, if you will. I know that I really tick off some people as I dance to the beat of my own drummer (as Mother always says when I am showing my headstrong tendencies and she’s aggravated with me), but the fact is that I do get on out there and dance…and if I slip and fall while doing the shimmy, well, I’ll just lick my wounds and get back up and out on the dance floor again, because even with the medical dramas and being really tight with a buck lately, I don’t think I have ever been happier and more comfortable in my own skin. Life is good, people! Get on out there…onto the dance floor…and whether it’s the tango or the Electric Slide…or even a polka…give something new a try!
