Why not one more?

January 30, 2009

I thought I might as well upload the other video from that night.

Except for the neon, the Obama posters and some contemporary clothing choices, this place had a bit of a juke joint feeling.  I was all ages and all styles, no matter what the music.  The DJ is a woman in her 60s.  She’s got every line dance imaginable, plus all sorts of things popular in Cleveland and maybe nowhere else.

It was fun.  The next night we went to a place with a mechanical bull.

Skeet’s

January 5, 2009

I went with my friend on the 1st to this place called “Skeet’s.”  When people started to show up, we were kind of sitting on some stools at the edge of the dance floor, people watching.  At one point, the man with the beard, who had been sitting at a table, slid across the floor James Brown style and started into the best dancing we would see that night. I think watching him may have helped my soul.  Yep.  Age ain’t nothin’ but a number.

Oh, and he looked a lot like my sixth grade teacher.  I think there’s a pretty good chance he might be my sixth grade teacher.  If my mom’s newspaper monitoring is correct, he’s principal somewhere now.

This is not my actual block. But it’s fairly close. I was waiting there, so I took a picture.

This is another view. You can see the wonderful Lake Mendota in the background.

I’m posting a few pics of the way one of the bus stops by my place looked in August or September. I guess folks might call it pleasant.
