while awaiting the wheelchair dance update

how about some synchronised swimming?
I tried to find a link to some of those wonderful clips from 1930s films, but couldn't find what I was looking for. . .
Esther Williams, The Million Dollar Mermaid, choreographed by Busby Berkeley, apparently, if my limited research proves correct. . .
you know, when the image is a little like looking thru a kaleidoscope?
I didn't find exactly what I wanted

. . .but this
is kind of cute!

(and this, which captures some of the modern interest)

Yes, but it's not wheelchair dancing, is it? You know that's our consuming interest.

I, Like The View said...

oh I know

:-/

it's just that to do the wheelchair dancing justice, I'd need to concentrate

and I've lost my ability to do that at the moment

I'll try harder next time

Synchronised swimming has come on a bit since I first saw it (a long time ago)! It really looks quite exciting now. (Although the flower picture is rather stunning)
Willing to wait for justice to be done in the wheelchair dancing department :)

Well then...given that I grew up watching all that stuff (parental torture at that time....LOL) I have some clue about what you're referring to.

The photos are cool.
And practicing patience seems to be on the agenda. *laughing* (Failing miserably, I'll have ya know!)

'about what you're referring to'

Really Mel, I'm sure you could do better with your infinitives than that!

Mel said...

Nope--that's as good as it gets at 6am on half a pot of coffee....

*laughing*

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. LOL

;-)

Mel said...

I have some clue about that to which you are referring.

(after 10pm and all is well....)

*REALLY laughing now!!*

Dave said...

Much better.

Mel said...

Yeah yeah yeah.....*laughing*

Coffee, anyone?

I have forgotten, having reached the bottom, to what it was that you were refering to initially when you first to it refered.

Mel said...

Oh heck-- what was the point again?

OH WAIT!!

Wheelchair dancing......

Dave said...

How did the wheelchair dancing go?

Synch swimming is great on the old movies.
But I still can't enjoy it as an Olympic sport... or should that be I still can't it enjoy as an Olympic sport.

Mel said...

Happy Tuesday at the right place.

Yup--hit the link to the music box....there's a testimony of why more coffee is required if ever there was one, huh?

|_P <-- cuppa coffee

LOL Not even close, huh?

Mel said...
