The Square Dancers

On my Mother's Day blog I mentioned the fact that my parents used to square dance. This is a picture of them that I found while I was at Mother's house last trip.

I actually remember this outfit. Mother's dress was a yellow and white gingham and one of her favorites. She also made Dad's shirt.

One of the most amazing things about the fact they square danced, is that my Mother, is and has always been, extremely hard of hearing. Being able to follow the callers instructions must have been really difficult for her. It actually amazes me that she was able to do it. Even though their names are Wilma and Loyd they both went by their nicknames of Bill and Buzz...Bill being my mother.

Seeing this picture sure makes me wish we would have saved some of the dresses and shirts that she sewed....they were really nice!!
