Hats off to an 87-year-old woman

Blow-you-away video.

My Dad's wife [about 10 or 15 years his junior; he's 87] sent him a copy of this video with a note:
Maybe by the time I reach her age I'll be able to do this, too . . . again!!

Hey, Ernie . . . can you dance like this with me??

Maybe this will inspire you to practice. (Or, at least, exercise.)

Love you,

Your honeybug
See what you think.

In case the sound track disappears before you get to see this (YouTube has been removing the sound track from every other copy of this video that appears), you should know that the video begins with the "boom-boom-boom" rising bass sound of the old John Lennon Ben E. King hit [thanks to Dave for correcting me!], "Stand By Me":
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
No I wont be afraid
No I wont be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me . . .
That continues till about 1:35 into the video, when the two dancers separate, apparently in disgust.

You will see some clothing come off (things do not become risque!) and then, while close up on the woman, she proclaims: "I want to salsa!"

Then watch what happens!

Stunning. Enjoy! May I, too, be that limber and supple at 87!
