My Father

"My dad was a great dancer.  (What happened to me?)    My dad could dance anything, rumba, foxtrot, jive, you name it.

He had a string of regular partners for particular dances and carried on going till shortly before his death in 1992 aged 84.

My dad also loved to get up and give a song.  He would learn all the verses of the current ballads and give his all to a rapt audience.   (Another 'What happened to me?')

The picture at the top of this page is of my dad, taking the floor at the Navy Club in the late-1980s.
