Dancing in the Rain

 


Hand  still wrapped, hunt and peck writing, but it is the month of the Irish. With Guinness and shepherd's pie on the line, St. Paddy's Day cannot be ignored.

My gr-daughters are Irish dancers. It is possible that our photos and dance recordings of the two of them could overwhelm you.  Instead, you will  see a world record of Irish dancers performing across the bridge, with the line wrapping down along the street.  

Riverdance on the banks of the Liffey

 Here is a write-up about that day:

"Riverdance World Record Longest Line 21st July 2013 - What a fantastic day on the banks of the River Liffey. A sincere thank you to all who made it happen - .. but most especially all the 1693 record breaking dancers from 44 countries whose enthusiasm and energy made the day and broke the record! Thank you!


Lead by Jean Butler and Padraic Moyles and over 115 Riverdance dancers in costume, the Riverdance line stretched for 1km along the north and south banks of the river Liffey, Dublin. The dancers were watched by an audience of thousands cheering them on as they danced for 5 continuous minutes in an unbroken line into the record books.


Over a 1000 of the dancers mastered the Riverdance step and these fantastic dancers danced Riverdance for 5 continuous minutes with the professional Riverdance dancers then after a short rest they joined the other dancers to dance for another 5 minutes to break the world record.

You cannot picture how amazing that time was.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Back from Dr., had the 2nd cast removed. Incision looks awesome. Hand hurts, but is moving well.  Maybe I can start writing again. Hunt and Peck is exhausting.

So, all is going along. Please leave a comment. It makes my day much happier.

  7. Your grands are Irish dancers? HOW FUN! I adore Riverdance and pretty much all Irish music and would love to go to Ireland. So, while I'm not Irish (as far as I can tell) today I will be listening.

    I hope every day with your hand is a little bit better!

  14. All that toe tapping hopping must keep the legs nice and slim.
    Keep hunting and pecking until the hand is completely healed, don't rush things.

  22. How can you not smile and feel uplifted watching the dancing and the music! Your Granddaughters are beautiful but I couldn't get the video to work. I'm sure they were wonderful! This year our small town turned the town creek green for St. Patrick's Day! That was awesome but also kind of funny! Have a good weekend!

  23. I couldn't get the video of your granddaughters to work but I enjoy watching Irish Dance. It's something I think I would have enjoyed as a youngster but I never was enrolled in any dance classes. So I'd be starting from total scratch at the age of 68. Not sure how that would work.
