Thank you David and I wish you and all the folk I consider as friends on this board the very best off Christmases, may yours be as lively as mine will be with the grandchildren and family.

Merry Christmas to you all,

Frank.

It is that Northern thingee David, the retrousee nose, Joanne Clifton has a lovely one plus the girl sure can dance. No basting this year it will all be done for me although no problem to a lad who basted a camel whilst sitting on its back and trying to make it hover over a Benghazi burner, not the most patient animal.

DD forget the foo foo powder to make you look skinny, just get a Northern lad who likes a nice rounded figure with grab handles.

David, OLA that is OLA not Olga. and Lily it is Ola got the ban for saying it is fixed she should be re-instated forthwith. David will be girlcotting it I am boycotting it but that does not mean I will not be watching with one eye the lovely Joanne, watch her in the group dances, a witch indeed. What David did not say is he has a small bedroom and there is a wall right down the middle of the bed, she would need a jackhammer.

KEF, Thursday at Daughter Pam's for sandwich and chat with a very large ham she left with me to cook. Friday with my Grandchildren at Daughter Sandra's then party at Daughter Margaret's. I may wake up Sunday???

"Oh" and David forget the body son it is the feet that count.

David, take the lights and baubles off and you are left with a fir tree, we have thousands around here. Some of the close ups in the training room without the glitz did surprise me.  I am with KEF, methinks Mr Aliona put his foot down. That is OLA, ALIONA and probably KRISTINA she has been a bit out of sight lately, next year could be a whole new line up, do not drown yourself in the toilet without seeing who comes after.

David, to an eleven year old there is only black and white, they have not discovered fifty shades of grey.

I know David, explain it to a dance mad eleven year old on the phone. "G/Dad did you see strictly" yes darling, "why would the worst dance win" wellll not every one sees things from a dance point of view, " but the best dancer lost" I could hear my G/Son saying "not every thing in this world is fair" not bad for a fourteen year old. Daughter comes on, "if that had happened in the dance school exams there would be a riot and that is only the children the parents would wreck the place" listen to your son not every thing in the world is fair. Dear Hannah keep doing what you do well but do not let it take over your life or there will be disappointment ahead.

Yes there were moments of joy moments of toe curling embarrassment and  times of being over the rainbow, pity it ended as it did.

My last word on it David, Frank.

Plant Pauper, it is what us fossils do, Sunday lunch a roast, the family sit down and talk, no phones no I pads and no watching tv whilst we eat. Stuck in our ways, doing things in the proper manner. Strictly is losing its way in the chase for higher ratings, the viewers suffer. Dancing the correct steps means you can dance in any Country as I did and people who cannot speak each other's language can dance together. Jay when asked if he deserved to win said sometimes the luck falls your way, well it did last night, he did not do a winning dance.

Frank.  PS the lamb was lovely.

PS David forgot to mention the leg of lamb filling the house with lovely aroma's covered with my own fresh herbs, a nice slow roast that gives me time to Burble on here and get over the worst dancer winning.

Kef, do not forget Len and I are "fossils" after years of training and dancing what do we know. Len was a welder I was an engineer if we had not done those jobs by the book people could have died, they will not die by not dancing in the correct manner though if a job is worth doing do it right.

David after the dancing there was only one real winner, perfect footwork apart from a small wobble right at the end Kelly outclassed them all, as with Caroline last year many did not like her but both could dance, Jay was a disappointment after great expectations. As soon as they announced he had won I turned straight over to the Bridge.

Sure there was frustration although there is light on the horizon, the large country Hotels around here put on dance nights and bring in top dancers some from strictly and we get a good meal plus dancing  as it should be done always a sell out and wonderful to see my own children enjoying the way Joan and I did. The Grandchildren learning and discussing strictly with real insight. dancing is still alive in clubs and halls here in the NE and my lot go on cruises where the main theme is dancing. It is coming back and as the youngsters grow will probably get us all back to real dancing once again instead of a Reality show which it became this year, let the lions loose to eat us fossils because the gladiators are rising once again.
