ABC Wednesday F is for Fred!

 Fond and Friendly appreciation Fly Forth to Denise and her Faithful Force For their Fortitude in organising this meme. Click here to see more posts.I am being idle again this week. The post I had prepared for F is far too long so I decided to Feature Fred once more. From an early age I loved watching Fred Astaire dance.

Dancing on the ceiling from 'Royal Wedding'

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, my favourite combination, dancing in 'Swing Time'


  1. Since I was a kid I'm enchanted by this fabulous couple dancing in their romantic movies!So nice to remember, thanks a lot!

  3. As a result of watching Fred dance, did you take an interest in dance yourself? Did you take any dance lessons?

  4. Wow love how they do it!! Great dancing pair!

  6. That was fun!But Janice i would love to read that long post u have ready.Maybe u can post it as an addendum??!!

  7. Aah, that was lovely! They were both amazing dancers, weren't they, but it's true that Fred Astaire had something extra special. He seemed to defy gravity - and I don't mean just when he was 'dancing on the ceiling'. That was fascinating, by the way! Knowing how it was done, and seeing it happen are two different things.

    Thanks for taking part!
