All Lined Up

As a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers’ fan, I certainly could not resist All Lined Up. Plus I already knew I enjoyed the writing of Cora Carmack.

You wouldn’t necessarily think a quarterback would feel an immediate attraction to a dancer. But they are both athletes trying to prove themselves. Dallas, the heroine, wants to dance in a more prestigious place than the small school she attends. The school, however, is a step up for Carson. He just wants to play well enough to get a scholarship. Oh, by the way, her dad is the football coach. Complications ensue.

My college days are far behind me, but this book was a sweet way to relive how it was to want to make a mark on the world and how it was to find a soul mate.

Dancing my pants off

Published August 19, 2012 by francesothomas

I made the mistake of wearing panty hose underneath my spandex Calendar Girl dance costume last night. The audience at the Fort Myers Elks must have wondered what on earth was the matter with me. My pants kept sliding south. Fortunately, the top was a tunic, but I was in mortal fear that the pants would slide down even lower than the hem of the top. Dancing while yanking up one’s pants is not an attractive sight. Then when they slid too low, I was afraid I’d trip on them. Let me tell you this did nothing for my concentration. I was turning left instead of right and missing steps all night.  Easily my worst performance ever, and one I sincerely hope never to repeat.
