Daddy wasn't much of a dancer...

..except when he and Mother were dancing - then it was ...magic..

but he also  used to do this little "jig"..and I never knew where it came from.

Until today.  I was  watching YouTube working when I came across this video of Laurel & Hardy's dancing and immediately recognized my Dad..um..his dancing..not that Laurel and /or Hardy was may Dad..

Now that would have been weird..



Enjoy - and when you find yourself with nothing to do, search YouTube for some great memories..that you didn't even know you had!

Aww thanks for the memories. When I was a young girl my family stayed at a residential apt. while vacationing in Santa Monica. I saw a star on one of the doors. It was gold and said Mr. Laurel underneath. I kept a vigilant watch and pretty soon this lady came out and I asked her if that was Stan Laurel and she said yes. A day later she knocked at our door and said Mr. Laurel would like to have me come to tea. Ofcourse I went and spent an enjoyable time with him. Even though he was a lot older he looked the same. He was the highlight of my trip. I will never forget his kindness to a little girl.

A clever video. I remember going to the pictures and laughing my head off watching them. My dad was a good ballroom dancer.

Lucky Sharon, what a memory!

Oh I love Laurel and Hardy so that was a good memory right there. I once did a biography on Stan Laurel and I named my daughter after him. No! Not Stan! :D

If your dad learned that dance, I'd say that he was a very good dancer. Too cute!

Fun video...the fondest memory of my parents (both still living thank goodness) is of them dancing together...they could go from one end of the dance floor to the other without missing a beat...Dancing with the Stars couldn't hold a candle to them...lol

Hi Colleen, comedy sure has changed a lot since that time. Was much nicer when it was all clean and simple fun.

Thanks for making my day, those boyz are my Dad's fave and I can so see him doin' the same jig. Can you see them dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller...hilarious!

Have a good one sista!

Chris just watched it with me and had a good laugh! He is now posting it on his FB account, he liked it that much. What a great dancer your Dad must have been....or a comedian....s
