Cutting the rug with the oldies but goodies!

Love was in the air last night as the retirement home where mama lives came to life with a late Valentines dance.  

One of mama's sweet caregivers, Nikki, came in to do mama's hair and makeup!  She did a great job and mama was just beautiful!




My brother and his wife came to party ..................

 

I came too, but sadly Russell had to work late, so Tommy had three dates for the night!



You're never too old to dance!  Below are Tom and Jo cutting the rug to the music of their time, that is those timeless love songs we all know!  At least those of us over 50!  Tom was having a blast!  Click on the picture to see the big grin on his face.  He danced with all the girls!

  

Mama and her friend Margaret!  They are both named Mary Margaret and they're fast friends.


  

Below is Barry, an incredible singer!   He walked around in the crowd stopping at tables to sing to the ladies....it was really sweet and a lot of fun.

 

Some of the ladies who made this happen!  Pat, on the left always has exciting things going on and keeps everyone on their toes.


The table decorations were really pretty.


 

Each year they crown the King and Queen of the retirement center.  This year, one of the married couples won and were crowned and presented with flowers.  This picture is a little dark, but click on it to see the royalty up close!

 

Good food, good music, dancing and just enjoying each other's company.  It was a great night.  
And a late night.  The dancing didn't stop until about 7:15 p.m.  

Love never ends!

Hey Nancy...no, the place I got it is locally owned. If you are ever in North Carolina, let me know. I'll tell you how to get there!
