Young Love

A few days agos the theme for the Funky Feats synchronized dance group was "Young Love". DJ Letzo provided the tunes and Funkie's Leader Jeni led our feet in the steps for dancing. I think we all had a great time, I know I did.

I had decided I would log on and split the two hour gig time between the belly dance at the medieval/fantasy land of Sylvhara and the Funkies. But when I did log on, I realized I was in the mood for casual apparel; in particular crops. While I was checking notices etc and trying to find the white crops I wanted (maybe they exist only in my imagination), the group chat popped up

Hevy Malibu: Young Love Rock Land........ DJ LetzGo Parkin and Leader Jeni Luik!
Hevy Malibu: you may get to "hold hands"!
Letzgo Parkin: I will take your requests and dedications that bring you back to your first love!
Hevy Malibu: remembers  his arm falling asleep at the movies......
Jeni Luik: Ladies.....we need you!
Hevy Malibu: 4 blonds here  3 of them men!
Jeni Luik: This is the first dance where I was the only gal

Casandra: oh my! and you are complaining Jeni? It sounds like a dream come true!
Casandra grins
Hevy Malibu: Cassy!
Hevy Malibu: waves*
Casandra waves and smiles
Casandra hi Hevy!!
Hevy Malibu crashes his bike into a tree waving back.....

That little interchange began a fun exchange between my friend Hevy and myself, which I don't think he will mind my sharing here. I'm going to leave out everyones comments that don't fit in with the "role play" to keep this post shorter and less confusing. We all had a great time chatting and telling stories about things that happened to us when we were young.

Casandra "oh dear!!!"
Hevy Malibu pops up quickly  to show he is not hurt.
Casandra runs over and helps Hevy up
Casandra "oh whew!"
Hevy Malibu * turns red  taking her hand *
Casandra smiles and blushes
Casandra can't think of anything to say (the cat has her tongue)
Hevy Malibu: realizes he has been staring and  well says........  Great new top Cassy.*
Casandra manages to collect herself and says "oooh, thank you Hevy!"

At this point I managed to find something I enjoy wearing and arrived at the dance:
Jeni: Hi Cas!
Bryan Hey Cassandra
Hevy Malibu: hooo Cassy!
Casandra: hi!!!
Janelle: Hey there Cas
Casandra grins
Letzgo Hi Cas
Hevy runs and trips right before trying to give a hug!
Hevy squeeks out "darn growth spurt"
Casandra stiffles a giggle and is amazed to see such a nice tall man tripping all over himself to get to her!!
Janelle *Giggles insanely*
Casandra looks up at him "you are so tall now!"
Hevy smiles to himself......... "she said man"
Hevy swallows hoping his new lower voice comes back...
Hevy Thank you Cassy......
Casandra wonders if heels would make her tall enough to look into his eyes

and can she walk in them???
Janelle Parkin (janelle.korobase): Wear boxers and let em all hang out Hevy
Janelle Parkin (janelle.korobase): that'll help
Casandra shakes her head "oooh no! That is not attractive at all!"
Hevy thinks to him self *well she is getting quite top heavy*
Casandra smiles
Hevy Malibu: wwonders if she can read his (thoughts*eyes) her expression said she did *
Crayola Camel: you are little.. casandra
Casandra decides she has to practice walking in her pretty new heels

Later ~~
Hevy Malibu: anyone got good first date stories!
Hevy Malibu: going to the movies?
Hevy Malibu: a sock hop?
Jeni Luik: how long have you got, Hevy?

I don't have permission, so I'll just share one of my memories:
Casandra: I remember on my birthday my dad saying "sweet sixteen, and never been kissed" and then his head did a sharp swivel "HAVE you been kissed??? I didn't want to be chaperoned on movie dates. Dad said he would sit behind us. At that point I couldn't imagine anything worse.

Hevy Malibu: whispers into Cassy ear.
Casandra leans closer to hear what Hevy says

Snow!! I've never gotten over my fascination with the fluffy white stuff. I remember staring out the window in class during high school when the first snow of the season was expected "is that snow I see? I think so. noooo.............Oh, now it is!"

When I was growing up, the best spot to get the full effect of a wintry evening was the back porch where the yard light shown through the tree branches and you could see the snow in all of it's glory and judge how much was on the branches. If there was any ice coating the branches, the scene glistened.

Now we live at sea level half way down the east coast of the United States, which means we get very little snow with the low elevation. The best location to see how much it is snowing and the size of the flakes is the breezeway...burrr. The next best would be the windows over the couch. So last evening when the fourth snow of the season began, there were a few times I could be seen kneeling on the couch with the drapes and sheers thrust to the side, looking out at the snow and smiling.

This morning we have about three inches and it is forecast to snow until noon. 

My poor mother, it's been a stormy winter for her. The past week has been the worst with two blizzards (she couldn't see her neighbor's house) dumping two feet on her, and two more days of snow on top of that. Plus horrendous lows, - 18, 8, -2, -20 this morning.
