Dancing in the 60's

He arrived at her house and rang the bell. 
'Oh, come on in!' Peggy Sue's mother said as she welcomed Fred in. 
'Have a seat in the living room. Would you like something to drink? 
Lemonade?  tea?' 
'Tea, please,' Fred said. Mom brought the tea. 
'So, what are you and Peggy planning to do tonight?' she asked. 
'Oh, probably watch a film, and then maybe grab a bite to eat at the 
milk bar, maybe take a walk on the beach.' 
'Peggy likes to screw, you know,' Mom informed him. 
'Really?'  Fred replied; eyebrows raised. 
'Oh yes,' mother continued, 'When she goes out with her friends, that's all 
they do!' 
'Is that so?' asked Fred, incredulous.

'Yes,' said the mother. 'As a matter of fact, she'd screw all night if we let her!' 
'Well, thanks for the tip!' Fred said as he began thinking about alternate 
plans for the evening. 
A  moment later, Peggy Sue came down the stairs looking pretty as a 
picture, wearing a pink blouse and a hoop skirt, and with her hair  tied back in a 
bouncy ponytail. 
She greeted Fred. 
Have fun, kids!' mother said as they left. 
Half an hour later, a completely  dishevelled Peggy Sue burst into the house and slammed the front door behind her. 
'The Twist, Mom!' she angrily yelled to her mother in 
the kitchen. 'The bloody dance is called the Twist!'

Cuckooites Chat room,Bits and Pieces.



One for Charlie. No anecdote I’m afraid, I never got to meet the maestro. I did, however, meet Trummy Young. He told me that, after Satchmo left for pastures blue, he decided that he’d spent most of his life on the road, so retired to Hawaii. One of his new neighbours discovered who he was and told a local club owner who talked him into appearing again. As he said, “Well, one thing led to another, and here I am again, on the road. Amen”!  Nice gent. Of course, he was picking only the gigs that interested him and was appearing with the Gil Evans Orchestra in Southampton when I was having an exhibition at The Guildhall. Fraid the picture is a more traditional method of painting horn players. My eldest son took the photo before it was finished, there was still some work to be done on the bell. Hope your Springtime is better than our late Summer.
