"roll out the barrel..and we'll have a barrel of fun.."

I spent my New Year's Eve at the West Point Vets Club dancing to Artie and Gwen Shmidt. I am the youngest one within probably 40 years, and I wouldn't give it up for anything! It is a treat to be able to see these couples dance together the same way they have been for 50 years. I love hearing their stories, hearing Artie say "Whoop dee doo!" after every song he plays..I only hope I will have that much energy when I am 87! I did learn last night that Artie and Gwen go for a 3 mile walk every morning..I am trying to discover as many of their secrets as I can...My favorite song to dance to is the Dessert Polka! Happy New Year!
