Good almost noon but not quite, no I didn't sleep in and yes I am feeling a great better than I have over the past month. 

At long last it's Adams Aces Day, and seeing that it has been a very long lay off with PD days, Family Day, Sick Caller Day, and goodness knows what other days were involved, tonight we will get too it for sure. I hope we can cover all the A1 Calls from the Standard Application Formations and work in most of the Calls on the Plus List, which may have also slipped off into the grey zone of our minds. If time allows and I don't frazzle your minds, we'll look at a mystery Call.

We sure hope everyone is well health-wise, or at least on the road to being well, as we start to enter the almost Spring weather pattern ( almost is the key word)
Take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Wow, it's Sunday once again, a little cooler this morning than yesterday but much dryer, which is good. I think it should be good driving to get to the Cookie Club this afternoon, where we can enjoy the following program. Today's program will cover all or as many Advanced Calls I can cover with emphases on the following Call Variations. "Motivate","Scoot Back 1 & 1/2", "Scoot Back 1/2 & 1", "Split Circulate 1&1/2 (Column)", "Follow Your Neighbour The Windmill (Right)", "Mix The Windmill (Right) or (Left)", " Split Recycle from a Column", "Remake The Thar", "Reverse Remake The Setup", "My Surprise". I hope this makes for an interesting afternoon.
Of course tomorrow we are back at Adams Aces for some A1 Dancing and cover some of the variations we have been working on.
That's about all I have for this morning, so take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Good morning to you on this very mild Feb. 19th with a temperature now of -5C but heading for +7C a little later.

It has been quite a while since the Cookie Club danced, the last time being January 22, and that was 4 Sundays ago. Today's program will be straight up Advanced with a little work on "Circulate 1 & 1/2", "Scoot Back 1 & 1/2", "Mix The Windmill", "Follow Your Neighbour The Windmill", and "Reverse Recycle". These are not new, we just may not recall them quite as quickly as some other Calls. I hope to get most of this covered, but who knows for sure.

Take care of yourself and each other and enjoy the mild weather while it lasts. I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Good morning, to you on this Friday February 17th. with a temperature of -7 but feels like -14 when we add in the 19 km/h NW wind. Warmer days are coming, maybe tomorrow!

I am feeling really good again this morning, which I hope continues, maybe this afternoon I spend some time on the talking side of the microphone, and try to get my breathing back in phase or phrase and out of the haze. 
Don't forget Sunday is The Cookie Club and Monday is Family Day when the schools are closed.
Okay that's it for now, take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Yes it's actually me, actually alive, and actually feeling quite a lot better than two weeks ago and before twenty goes of some Antibiotic pills, lots of lemons and water, and No (Zero) Square Dance Calling. Thank you all for your well wishes I think they actually really helped me along.

The Plan as of now is that we will return to the Cookie Club Sunday Feb.19th. so if you read this, please pass it on, I will post the Program either Saturday evening or Sunday morning. The weather forecast for Sunday is +6 C. but somehow I don't think we have to worry about cutting the grass just yet.

Monday Feb. 20th is Family Day so all the schools are closed and therefore no Adams' Aces.

Take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you at the Cookie Club.

SUNDAY Feb. 12

Wow! We sure made to right decision to cancel the Cookie Club today, not only because of my Cold but the weather as well, which is just awful today and we are so happy none of the Cookie Club Dancers are out driving in it. I can't help but think about Brian Crawford driving back home, following Calling a dance in Cornwall.

We have also decided to cancel Adams Aces tomorrow evening Feb. 13th. just to give myself a couple more days of recuperation. Then Feb.20th is Family Day and the schools are closed, So we will resume our normal nights Feb.27.

Please take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Good morning Square Dancers, as many of you may already know I am on my 4th go of antibiotics, which are supposed to help with the elimination of this ailment I have been trying to shake for the last three or four months, while continuing our regular scheduled of events. So far these antibiotics have not been successful, and I still continue to bark and cough to a point to where my stomach turns. All our friends tell me I need rest, so for once in my life I will do just that. Therefore tomorrow afternoon's Cookie Club is canceled as of now. I am sorry to have to do this, firstly, because it doesn't fit my style to cancel, but this time I will lay my style aside, and secondly because I don't feel I can give you a first rate program while in this condition.

At this time I will see how I feel Sunday before I decide whether or not to cancel Adams Aces for Monday evening so keep an eye on the Blog.

Thank you for understanding my situation and if I don't take this rest away from microphone, I don't want to think what the next step might be.
