    Welcome dancersdreamland, :D

    I did mention the Hokey Pokey earlier; my first grade teacher had us do it.

    Just saw "running man" on another board...can't remember who posted it, but I thought it should be mentioned here. Along with it...the roger rabbit.

    I feel in regard to hokey pokey, this MUST be noted: hokey pokey is so much more fun on roller skates in a stinky roller rink with lots of people wiggling around and trying to keep balance...it makes it even more of a dance! :p

    Oh yea! That's the first place I actually ever saw the hokey pokey. It's pretty challenging to get on one foot in rollerskates and shake it all around lol.

    You're only as old as you act and I try to act as young as possible...without going overboard. :tongue:

    Thanks...previous posts not meant to imply I thought I was old. Just thought I'd pass along some tips on staying young. :p
