I went square dancing again at the community center last Thursday. It was great fun and I guess my future if I choose to continue is to dance as a “guy”. After your first lesson you are considered “experienced”. Ha! The instructor thanked me for my mistakes and called them learning opportunities for everyone. I was so pleased to have made that contribution. Now if I can just figure out which hand is my right hand or left? Star Right means you put your Left hand up and go around in a circle to the right.

First of all let me assure you I do not own stock in SC Johnson. A few weeks ago I mentioned that Pledge Restore and Shine was better than anything I’d found for polishing up my stainless steel dishwasher even though it is only recommended for wood.

A leather purse I had stored under the bed in an “airtight” container was spotted with mildew so I wiped it down and touched up some slightly worn spots with black shoe dye. However I kept getting black residue on my cloth and didn’t want it coming off on my clothes. So out came the Pledge Restore and Shine. Not only did it remove the excess dye it cleaned the purse up so well it looked like I’d just brought it home from the store. I think the secret is the orange oil.

What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear about it if you would like to share.

All news for next week has to be received by Monday evening in order to be published in the Thursday edition of the Transylvania Times
