Isolated because of goverment restrictions, Elaine and Dennis are not idle. 

We are spending a lot of time in our dance hall working on new Square and Round Dance music, routines and videos.  (Not to mention all the work Elaine's done painting, staining, and polishing, and having two doors and part of a roof replaced)

We are also practicing our Round Dancing so that, when the time comes, we are better prepared to bring all of you back into the rhythm of dancing (pun intended).

We truly miss all of you all as, I am sure, we all miss each other.   Stay well and keep in touch.
