Got invited by Wallette to go with her and her new friends to to a Lonestar Roller Girls competition.

It's going to be the Putas del Fuego vs the Cherry Bombs.

I may have a new passion.


Here's the associations website....

@chai2,
Do Putas del Fuego mean what I think it do?

@George,
Hells yeah it means what it says. Do you think roller girls fool around?

Children under 12 free!

When there's a penalty (such a unsportswoman like conduct) a small child is chosen from the spectators to spin the "Wheel of Punishment" and pillow fights or arm wrestling ensues.

This one girl broke her leg in practice, and they put a metal rod in it. Then she messed it up in a competition.

That earned her the nickname Pinbender.

Wallette's friend pointed out that one of the girls was wearing a bandana around her lower leg. That was to hide her ankle bracelet monitor.

You can see why I'm pretty excited.

I once ordered one of these in Caracas, thinking it was a pizza type thing.

I was wrong.

Yep.
I'd be excited too.
And I don't excite easily these days.

what made me smile?

I smiled whilst hearing my Oncology doctor tell me the results of my bone biopsy for a rare form of NH Lymphoma. And after 10 months of various tests and treatments (incl. chemo and radiation) has shown I have no cancer cells in my marrow. I'm in 'complete remission'.

Even though my type of NH-Lymphoma cancer has no cure per se, this is awesome and encouraging news. Over the next 18 months I'll be treated every other month with one chemo drug, from which I never have any intrusive symptoms./ I'm a happy man. Life is good.

@Ragman,
That's terrific news Ragman!

It made me smile so you must be beaming.

I'm smiling because I got a total ass-kicking in choreo class today and I freaking kept up. It's a new experience for me to be the person other students are watching to see how the footwork goes Smile

@ehBeth,
congrats. Good for you~

Dancing at the level is quite the challenge. I used to live with a woman who took modern tap. I used to go to her classes with her and watch the 50+ and 60+ people do those steps. Whew! went to the recital and was blown away by their progress and synchronicity.

@Ragman,
I've never been a good, much less great, dancer, but I did fall in love (as they say) with my later husband while dancing. It was his eyes.. (oh, and his voice and his brains) He never went home again except to get his stuff.

Earlier, by some years, I could get rid of my essential shyness with - of all people, a guy I was not in love with but trusted and wasn't embarrassed around. We used to dance at the Ambassador Hotel, place of some years ago fame in Los Angeles.
I remember my joy dancing to the band's cover of Wilson Pickett's Midnight Hour.

He asked me to marry him three New Year's Eves in a row, my always saying no. Good man, we did talk all that out, each New Year's, but kept movie going and dining and dancing because we were comfortable.

So, I'm smiling about Wilson Pickett.
