Shake, Rattle and Roll...

Hello...With Autumn at our doorstep...allow me to introduce you to a charming couple who reside here in Funtown. Meet Hambone and Boney Maroney...they compete in Ballroom Dancing Contests and they have many trophies. He prefers the Tango as he has a dramatic flair...Miss Boney likes the Fox Trot as she is developing creaky joints.

They pack their dancing shoes and travel up and down the East Coast. We are so proud of our famous couple. No, they are not married...not yet, anyway...but, there are rumors.

During the evening hours, Boney Maroney relaxes by knitting and watching old black and white movies...the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers' films are her favorite. She secretly believes that she is much more graceful than "that Ginger Rodgers!" She is knitting yet another scarf for Hambone as he has poor circulation and is always chilly. He has confided in me that he longs for a colorful argyle scarf...but alas...Boney Maroney is color blind and has trouble following directions.

Here is Hambone practicing bobbing for apples for our Harvest Moon Fall Festival. He has been the Apple-Bobbing Champion for three years running. He is very competitive and enjoys posing for the snapshooter during the trophy presentation ceremony. Fortunately he doesn't boast too a dose of humility is a good thing here in FunTown.

We can hear the music daily as we stroll by Boney Maroney's home...we smile knowing that the duo is inside twirling, kicking and dipping. This is why they are Champions.
This is their 8x10 glossy that they had made for the contests...but Boney is hoping that it will be their engagement photo for the newspaper. She dreams of this moment while knitting.

Have "shake-rattle-and-roll" fun today,   Jody,


  1. I love them....they are the perfect couple :)

  2. Love dem bones...dem bones!
    You put your left foot in,
    You put your left foot out,
    And you shake it all about.
    You do the Hokey Pokey
    And you turn yourself around,
    That's what it's all about.
    Thanks for the giggly fun Jody.

  3. Dem bones, dem bones, dem lazy bones! I guess they aren't really that lazy are they? I think you'd like visiting a great friend of mine, her name is Elizabeth and she's at ( She creates all kinds of wonderful goodies out of felt. Hey, instead of an elephant, could you do a circus zebra or a clown?


  4. HEE HEE!! what a hoot!!!
    Miss Boney likes the Fox Trot as she is developing creaky joints.

    I feel like that sometimes with the creaky joints! Great story and photos, you really know how to spin a yarn!!
