Taking a Vent Break


Hi folks!

Just wanted to let ya'll know I’ll be taking this week off from blogging.

I’ve got a lot of stuff going on at work with special events, therefore will be working more hours.

I will miss you ladies and gents, thinking of you and hoping you’re all having a faaaaaaabulous week!

Take care, be good, and I’ll see you all next Monday!

X

Note: I leave you with this brilliant dance number from Fred Astaire, in which he dances with a coat rack. After you watch it, you'll understand WHY the man was a genius!

  2. That was quite a dance number. I hadn't seen it before.

    As always Ron, blogging takes a back seat to real life for all of us. Don't work yourself too hard, and don't spend all that extra money either.

  3. You know, according to moi, the mark of a genius (in whatever field) is that they do what they do extremely well, but make it look effortless - and that's what Fred Astaire did, didn't he? Such grace, fluidity, flair, expertise and joie de vivre and he looks as if he's taking a stroll in the park!

    There are singers like that too - Roy Orbison was one, which was only truly apparent when you saw him perform - and actors (you know who), and artists, athletes .. even animal trainers. Thanks for the clip! I enjoyed it. :)

    Don't stay away too long. Don't make me come and look for you!!

  7. Spring is our busy season, I guess! Looking forward to more posts soon and I will definitely have my photos up from NYC asap.

    My son used to be a tap dancer. He had to give it up for tennis, but it helped his game, that's for sure!

  8. Dear Ron,

    Breaks are always good. It is glamorous to know how to dose work and going and doing abouts, and how to relax.

    You are in my thoughts. Right here. Right now. Paris is smiling at you. Over there. Far but not so from the heart.

  9. Have a good week off, Ron. Remember to take some time for yourself and drink some wine.

    I'll be back later to catch up on what I missed last week! BTW, there was an absolute HERD of squirrels in my yard this weekend! I kept thinking you'd just love it. Drove the dogs crazy! LOL

  10. We'll miss you this week. And yes, Fred Astaire was a dance genius. I have never seen anyone that can hold a candle to him. He was breathtaking and amazing!

  11. Hi Ronnie,

    We are all gonna miss ya :(. But, a week goes by quickly so, you take care and try not to worrk too hard.

    I LOVE Fred Astaire! I am lucky that I had an older Dad. I missed off in horseplay and ball games but, he gave me an appreciation for the oldies; Jimmy Stewart,the Marx Bros, Laurel & Hardy,Fred Astaire and many more.
    Thanks for sharing this marvelous video.

    See you very soon.

  13. Greetings Levian~

    Aw...thank you, my friend! I look forward to returning on Monday.

    "do remember to take extra care of yourself during this busy week that you are going to have. we can't have you sick at the end of it can we. hopefully you'll have an enjoyable one as replacement next week!"

    I will. I plan of watching some movies I've been meaning to rent in the evenings.

    Have a wonderful week! And thank you for stopping by!

  15. Hiya Peg~

    Aw...I'll miss ya too, dear friend!

    "And yes, Fred Astaire was a dance genius. I have never seen anyone that can hold a candle to him. He was breathtaking and amazing!"

    I soooooooo agree! No one can hold a candle to him. Did you know that Michael Jackson idolized Fred and there's actually a video he made where he tap danced in honor of Mr. Astair? Michael Jackson was quite the tap dancer himself.

    Thanks for stopping by, Peg! Have a fabuous week!

    HA! Yes, I would have LOVED it, you know it!

  17. Bonjour Susu~

    "It is glamorous to know how to dose work and going and doing abouts, and how to relax."

    You said it! I try to honor myself when I know it's time to take a break; prioritizing.

    "You are in my thoughts. Right here. Right now. Paris is smiling at you. Over there. Far but not so from the heart."

    Thank you. I LOVE you how express yourself through words. They always read like poetry!

    Have a wonderful week, beautiful lady! And thank you for stopping by!

    Ciao.....x

  18. Hi Bijoux~

    Yes, spring and also fall are busy for so many of us. Retail gets CRAZY at this time!

    I can't WAIT to see your NYC photos and read all about it!

    "My son used to be a tap dancer. He had to give it up for tennis, but it helped his game, that's for sure!"

    I'm not surprised because dance is a form of atheletics in itself. Bravo to your son!

    Have a wonderful week, my friend! Thank you for stopping by!

  22. Hi Jay~

    "You know, according to moi, the mark of a genius (in whatever field) is that they do what they do extremely well, but make it look effortless - and that's what Fred Astaire did, didn't he?

    OMG....I freakin' LOVE how you said that because it's soooooooooo true!

    The mark of any genius is that they make it look effortless, and Fred most definitely did that! The amazing thing about this dance number is that it was shot with a minimal amount of 'cuts', so he bascially danced it from beginning to end!

    "There are singers like that too - Roy Orbison was one, which was only truly apparent when you saw him perform - and actors (you know who), and artists, athletes .. even animal trainers."

    I agree on Roy Orbison. His voice is like butter!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a wonderful week and I see ya on Monday. Miss ya!

  23. Hi Matty~

    "That was quite a dance number. I hadn't seen it before."

    It's one of my favorite Astair numbers. I also love the one where he dances on the walls and ceiling. It's mind-blowing!

    "Don't work yourself too hard, and don't spend all that extra money either."

    HA! I won't.

    Thanks for stopping by, neighbor! Have a super week!
