Jump blues

Jump is the daily prompt today  and that makes me think of JUMP BLUES!

I have been dancing jitterbug and swing and zydeco and salsa for more than 30 years. Met my kids’ father swing dancing. A friend made us a tape of Jump blues: It ain’t the meat by the Swallows is one of my favorites. GREAT song to dance too as well as being appreciative of all sizes and shapes of the opposite sex…Here is a more Jump blues: http://www.allmusic.com/subgenre/jump-blues-ma0000002678

I took the photograph at  Synchronized Swimming Nationals in 2012… speaking of jumping. This double lift is done by the other six swimmers under the water, never touching bottom.

Rainbow passage

Returning from taking my daughter to Bellingham to start college at Western Washington University, I stopped at Deception Pass. The rainbow showed up on the way back to the car… It is so pretty it doesn’t seem real, but it was, and taken with my cell phone! I will miss my daughter at school, but look! There are still rainbows!
