From opera to country western music. Eddie Arnold sang a song called "Cattle Call" and boy could he yodel in that one!
Dad and his lucky lottery check, he won $50 when the Colorado Lottery first came out and he was so happy with that check that I took a picture of him in his favorite navy blue polka dotted shirt. My dad was not a dancer, at least not when I was a young woman. My mom enjoyed polka dancing and dad was just content to sit back and watch. I love music like he did and I love dancing just like my mom.
Auntie Ang Steblay had the greatest collection of music, especially some great polka music. She had an album that featured a sweet song called "Little Fella". Always enjoyed sharing her music with her. She loved Liberace too. Now that I am older I understand why I like a variety of music, because I had so many wonderful influences on me as a kid.
There was a popularity for polka music. My sister had a friend, Dorothy Skerjanic and her husband John and they belonged to a "Polka Club" and they went dancing with people who belonged to this club. Dorothy could hold her own on the dance floor as well as with people in a conversation. Gosh, a great BoJon memory.
When our kids were younger we spent many Sunday mornings cooking breakfast and dancing in our living room. Our neighbor Chris, at the time, had lots of folks from Mexico living with his phamily and they would crank up that Mexican music after nine a.m. We were not to be outdone and would crank up a variety of music so the kids could dance with us. That is an excellent memory.
