I was thinking about some rather random stuff this morning. Not sure if the randomness is a "me" thing or a "product of Lyme disease" thing. Either way, just going to roll with it. :-) I heard a song on Pandora the other day that reminded me of my grandparents--my grandma in particular. As the only girl in a family full of boys, grandma was athletically inclined. A tomboy in a skirt, basically. I'm not certain when dancing became her sport of choice, just that it was a favorite pastime. She was a graceful, beautiful dancer, performing both for fun and competition. In fact, she won awards for the Jitterbug and I believe for moves like the ones in the featured video. The most precious, priceless of awards being my grandpa's heart. Grandpa was a shy enlisted man and they met just before he was called to go overseas (WWII). I believe he fell in love with her the first time they met. When he returned from the war, they got married immediately. It was supposed to be just the two of them and the minister, however, everyone in town wanted to see that wedding and hundreds packed into that church to see them tie the knot. He was injured in the war and had to hobble along...a gesture that I imagine touched the hearts of most there that day. Of all the couples I've known, I believe they are the #1 example of romantic love and friendship, one that is pure and true. Soul mates who are currently both laughing and having a great time in Heaven.
(I realize that's just a snippet about my grandparents--and actually I have three other grandparents that deserve some cred one day, as well--but this is all for now as I'm just a mere blogger and their complete story is as epic as all Star Wars movies combined.)
This song is dedicated to them. It's called "Booty Swing" (Parov Stelar). I'm not sure if this is Parov Stelar's actual music video or a fan remix, either way, it's well choreographed and is invigorating. Sweet.
