Shut Up And Dance With Me

I was tired and emotional yesterday
Today's glorious sun has taken over from my aggressive tendencies and after a long sleep in after getting up too early
My mood has lifted.
It's 7pm and the cottage windows are wide open to the near summer conditions 
Mary is out with Hattie and her boyfriend Adam
Hattie and I will be ringing the Church bell tomorrow at 8pm
The bulldogs are down at Trendy Carol's, respite which allowed me to clean the floors and scrub the patio. 
Trendy Carol is wearing her summer linen.
We have our old , more cheerful postman back....he left me my ordered Korean disaster movies and an early birthday card from Marilyn ....thank you! My birthday is not until June 1st 
Yes , I'm a Gemini 

A week or so ago I posted a wonderful dance video from classic Hollywood movies. Today I will leave you with this more modern day version.
It's a triumph of editing ....
Enjoy
It is pure joy

    2. I posted that version to my blog some time back of the Old Movie Stars dancing to Uptown Funk. That just may be the most brilliant one to date Yorkshire Liz.

      Glad you enjoyed the Uptown Funk, such brilliant dancing and editing. And no-one could spin like Eleanor Powell! Some of my favourite ever dance moments. Lovely to share with the lovely Going Gently community and John. X

    Brilliant video and track, some great films on there. I'm Gemini too, 29th May, my two eldest granddaughters share their birthday the day after, 7 years apart. Glad you had a better day today, rest and sun helped I'm sure. Enjoy ringing the bell tomorrow.

  8. Silly. For a moment there I thought you did wanna have fun.
    I have to say that I’ve seen all of these movies. Damn. I’ve seen a lot of movies.
    Also that song is an earworm.

  11. I too am a Gemini with my 60th on 25th May also a bank holiday which means nothing now of course. A year ago my family said we should be altogether for this but now not possible. Also as well as a three year old grandson I have new one month old grandson who I will never now get to hold as a new baby but as long as they are all healthy that is the only thing that matters. They are too far away to visit so will do a video call but we must all count our blessings and make the most of what we have. I am always uplifted by your blog and all the comments and am so glad that we are all here for each other in any way we can be. Ring that bell and we will all be with you in spirit. X

  12. Love dance. For more dance moves go to Youtube and search Chris Starkey and daughter Brooklyn. Their Quarantine Monday dance routine is hilarious. Good dance moves too. Enjoy, Susan

  13. Shift work can really mess with our emotional well being.

  14. That is one of my "get up and move" playlist songs, because it always makes me dance. The video was really fun.

    A shortened version of my comment yesterday is that I have a friend who is a Gemini (27th May). Her card has been posted as she lives in Eire and yours is still waiting to be nearer to 1st June.

  25. Loved the video. I would so love to be able to dance but I have two left feet. Looks like I'm a birthday buddy, John - 20th June.
