I confess. I like to dance. Today I danced with a “blood drop.” Even Fred Astair (famous movie terpsichorean circa 1933 – 1987)never did that. It happened at the Governor’s Annual Picnic held at the Anchorage Park Strip. The picnic’s been a twenty year tradition for governors of all political persuasions. Lots of fun and camaraderie. There's a tented section on the picnic grounds reserved for seniors - I visited with with the seniors, and no one "carded me." This year’s picnic theme was “Salute to the Military,” which is most appropriate. Music was provided by The Alaska Brass from Elmendorf AFB.

And, oh yes, what's a “terpsichorean”? It's a fancy word for “dancer” – I learned that after I left East Los Angeles.
