Marlboro

Morris Ale. That little picture of me and L yesterday made me think about what we subjected her to as a tiny child. We used to go to the massing of the Morris dancers in VT every May. One year, it was so cold that L had to wear her winter coat—almost June, too!

Although we didn't attend this one from 2006, here is Brattleboro, and some unusual dancers:

Is that an Irish thing? I should get in touch with my Irish roots.

Ah. I love Morris dancing! I just went to the annual Twelfth Night celebration put on by the Westerly Morris Men. Lots of fun!

Morris Dancers in the US? Who'd have thunk it! They used to dance outside the Crown near my Grandma's place in the south of England.

What's up, Ms Blog-a-lot! ;)

You know I've read about Morris dancing but I've never seen it until just now. Strange.

Never heard about it, but it looks like it would be fun to watch a live performance. I think it is important for all historial dances to continue, and it was nice to see that young people were dancing it, and enjoying it enough to watch.

Thank you for showing me something that I had neither seen nor heard about.

God bless.
