Letters to Lonnie- Grannies Volt

Grannies VoltDear Lonnie,

I am in the market for a new car and my college student grandson says I should buy a Chevy Volt. He says it will save me money and I will help save the environment. I’ve seen the car on TV and it sounds nice, but the price seems pretty steep to me. I only drive about 8000 miles a year for shopping and church. I also make a trip to Hattiesburg every year to see my sister and go to the family reunion.

What do you think?

Signed,

Caring Grandma

Myrtle Beach Man On: The Art of Dancing

 

 

I had the pleasure of meeting quite a character over the last few weeks’ by the name of Bruce Patterson. A Vietnam Veteran and retired Marine, He spends his spare time dancing up a storm at the beach. I date a certain bass player and that’s how I met Bruce, at one of snookum’s shows. He is every bit the old fashioned gentleman who loves to have a good time and dance to music that has a real audible beat!

 

While at the shows Mr. Bruce has been kind enough to share his stories with me and tell me all about dancing,  and given me a copy of his personal opinion piece on the art of dancing which I present to you, in parts, here. I hope you enjoy reading his thoughts as much as I did.

 

 

The Art of Dance: Part 1

By Bruce Patterson

Ballroom Philosophy:

 

The mission of  the gentleman is to SHOWCASE the lady...He is to lead her through the moves that bring  attention to the lady, not himself...It should be obvious to any onlooker that the style of dance presented by the gentleman is that he is symbolically  spoiling the lady, pampering the lady, worshiping the lady, placing the lady on a pedestal, and treating her like a princess...he should NEVER lead himself into any component that would have him turn his back on the lady at any time during the dance...any of the gentleman’s personal style movements should bring attention to the lady not himself...

 

Ballroom dancing is a PARTNERSHIP in which a couple works together, via leading and following, to accomplish their special goal of having FUN....

So, what do they think of us now in the Big Apple?

Myrtle Beach is now on the map in the minds of average New Yorkers after so many years of being thought of as some small town in Florida.  I can say this with some conviction after taking my annual trek to Teaneck, New Jersey last Saturday. I traveled via LaGuardia airport in New York City…Queens to be exact.
 
Seventeen years ago, when I left Washington DC to come to Myrtle Beach permanently, I was given a lot of cute good luck and “moving away” cards and not a few of them made jokes about my destination. But the one that really got me came from someone who obviously meant well but was totally out of it, “Good luck in Turtle Beach,
