Kathleen and Terry are still having fun doing the ballroom thing. In fact, Terry has taken notes on truisms he and Kathleen have discovered in the past year. Take the link to find out more about how leadership pertains to ballroom dancing. Leading On The Dance Floor.

For most of the year Terry and Kathleen just got better at the basics. They are busy in the evenings. Tuesday evenings it is usually group lessons with Jackie Davis. Wednesday evenings have been devoted to Argentine Tango in Cambridge. Thursday nights have been devoted to lessons with Richard Hutton at Fred Astaire in Hanover. Friday nights have tended to be Salsa at Vincentís in Randolph. Saturday evenings they are always out. Sunday evenings are always Workmanís Hall in Norwood. They got a chance to do a dance camp at Kutshers Country Club in upstate New York as well, and they did Argentine Tangoís under the stars in Cambridge. New this year was Sunday mornings on Nantasket Beach in Hull. Terry and Kathleen take the boom box and simply dance for an hour on the outside dance floor on Nantasket Beach.

Kathleen has found a new interest. She is making necklaces, bracelets, and ear rings for ladies that she takes belly dancing lessons with. She has also found a market for her products with ballroom and salsa dancers. We expect her to have a web site soon.

J.D. (Jenniferís Dog) keeps us all entertained even though he is fat, old, blind, and pretty much deaf. He also has developed an "attitude" about begging for food. He teaches us humility. I guess many of us have that to look forward to at some point.

The big news this year has been two-fold for daughter Jennifer. She is using her dual college degrees to work in the Leave No Child Behind early intervention program. The program was designed for developmentally challenged children under the age of three. The second big news was the announcement by Jennifer that she and Mike Micalone are engaged to be married. The year of 2006 has been decided, but the date has not been set.

Daughter Kimberly and husband Matthew Kelley are dog parents, and Georgia (as in artist Georgia OíKeefe) is their beagle "daughter." Kim continues to do ballet after 27 years and won an art award. Matthew travels the country maintaining relationships his employer has in managing major accounts.

Terry made two trips to Arkansas to see parents J.K. and Genevieve.

Plans for 2005 call for an early January Caribbean cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas.
