Well, I wasn't a teenager during the fifties or the next decade (preteen during the last portion), but I did watch American Bandstand and the reruns for those events.
I grew up with a mother that made the oldies music and dance a great favorite of mine.
Friend George was again in the US from his work in EG. His 'parents' were out of town and the party was on!
What fun we all had traveling to his house, dressing up and chowing down hamburgers, fries and cherry pie!!
A friend of George's provided the music (not all true fifties), the furniture was pushed back to the walls and everyone had the best time!
Friends MariaJose (aka Jo) and Luis came all the way from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico for the party! They definitely won the prize for the ones traveling the farthest to attend. They had never seen such as we had! Of course they are less than half our age!!
I was planning to wait to post until George could send me his and friends' pictures as well, but George is busy doing all the things he needs and wants to before returning to
work so I thought I'd let you peek at the few photos I had taken (sometimes camera being passed off to someone else to take the shots because I was busy and, lets face it, I'm not a great photographer).
I had a disposable camera as well (do I hear you mumbling, Mitch?) that the photos should be inset in a frame with movie shots of ELVIS!
Hopefully, now that the floods are to stop, I'll run errands and get those for you too.
Miss all my friends and hope everyone is doing exceptionally well.
