My High Stepping Dancing Days

Yes, I was once known as "Dancing Don". It is something I did a lot of at one time. From Square Dancing (High School with my Sister) to rocking out to the music of the '60s and '70s to free form dancing , soft-shoe to Jazz.

My all time high point was dancing around a smokey fire to George Pegram, Rounders Record #0001.

If any of you remember those Van Hoyt Brothers annual Bluegrass Concerts at Union Grove, NC, please post!

In Photo Days of Yore!

I recieved this 31 year old image from my Sister today. I am using a Yashica D that I had used for a few years, loaned to me by her.

This it at "The Wall" on Hope Street in Bristol, RI on that Fourth of July day. Bristol has been celebrating the Fourth longer than any other place in the USA. The center line of the Parade Route is Permanantly painted Red, White and Blue.

I still wear the same 4 inch cresent wrench with my work clothes. This is the year ('76) when Police gassed that spot because someone through a bottle into the parade. (Remember post Vietnam. I had only been out of the service less tahn a year. My Family got gassed along with the "rioters".
