John Becanic "Too Sexy For My Shirt"

We always look forward to the Winter Ranch Variety Show. It is always a hoot. This year we did a short bit in it. Karen Timko asked us to dance though 16 bars of music where there was a break in the duet she was doing with John Caster to "Unforgettable". I don't remember being as nervous as I was since I was a kid have to do a piano recital. I can manage to get up and talk in front of a crowd but ask me to act or dance and I just get all tangled up in knots. Thank goodness Lee does not have the problem so since he could lead me around it went all right!

Our Activity Director, JD Murray, was a big hit in Madam L and Her Handsome Man and John Becanic was a stitch in his numbers. I especially liked "Too Sexy In My Shirt".

We have a lot of talented people in the park and a few who sing every year who we wish would retire from the stage but then they are all volunteers so you get the good with the bad!
