The Lighter Side of JzB

From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Mellow Yellow Monday - On Tap

Here is granddaughter Amanda (far right) with her competition dance team, all decked out for their tap number, HEY PACHUCO!

This picture was taken last month.  They competed again this week, and swept the top three spots with their tap, point and lyrical group numbers.  Amanda also took top overall, among 21 teen dancers, for her point solo, ESMERALDA.  Some stills from the earlier comp  can be found here.  This time, she totally nailed it, and made audible contact with the tambourine on each of her back kicks.

Back to HEY PACHUCO!  Doesn't it make YOU want to dance?



  1. What a wonderful granddaughter you have!
