First when there’s nothing…[covers face with paw]
but a slow glowing dreeeam
That your fear seems to hide [look out from under paw]
deep inside…your mind [look at audience meaningfully]
All alone I have cried [trot to edge of rug like gymastics floor exercise]
silent tears full of pride [waves paws over head to ‘heavens’]
In a world made of steel, made of stone [pushes right paw out in a ‘stop right there! move]
[skips to center of rug with one flip] Well I hear the music,
close my eyes, feel the rhythm [cabbage patching]
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart
[Unbelievable fervor of Roger Rabbitting]
What a feline, seein’s believin’
I can have it all, now I’m dancin’ for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life!!!

Goin’ back over a century in this week’s edition of Flashback Friday! Maria D. writes: “Hi guys, I have the attached photos in my family album. They were taken around year 1912 in Warsaw. The (above) boy is my granddad, Jerzy Szymanderski. The serious man (below) is his father, Adam Szymanderski. The dog is a pointer and his name is either Mars or Dunaj. I hope you may find this interesting…many thanks.”
