|So 50's - all of us|
shyest person in my class to one of the most adventuresome persons that I know.
Within 3 weeks time, I have attended a 50's Dance Party which was a tribute to Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper, wearing poodle skirt, saddle shoes...the works, went to Belize for my son's wedding and after being home a couple days took off for Vegas. I am, as a friend of mine said, "Spreading My Wings" and enjoying life.
|Remember my friend Buddy Holly?|
I purchased 6 tickets for the front row at Diamond Jo's by Northwood and coaxed the other girls to "dress up" in 50's outfits. I mde 3 of the poodle skirts myself.
We had a great time . . . we had "Buddy" and "Richie Valens" sign their autographs on our saddle shoes.
The trip to Belize was quite an adventure...this is the first time that I have been out of the country. We landed in Belize City, then took a 12-passenger plane to San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye. If you remember the song "La Isla Bonita" by Madonna, she is singing about this island. (The Beautiful Island)
At San Pedro we took a van (the driver drove wildly through the streets filled with potholes and tried not to run over the bicycle riders). The van took us to Wet Willy's where we took a boat to
our resort. During these bumpy rides, I had a very sore tailbone after falling on it before my trip.
The weather was beautiful, the island beautiful, the wedding awesome.

French, so people from all over the world come to see her perform.
I had a wonderful time in all my adventures…now to think of more to do…hmmm. The bad part was
