er. Today, as you can see, I haven't danced since. My usual saying is, "I used to dance about 80 pounds ago!" (I think you could still do some dancing if you wanted to.) Oh, God. Oh, sure. And hopefully I'll be dancing real soon, because I've got a 3- year-old little man home that's just--he's itching to learn. I want to see that it's something that he wants to do, for sure, before I say, "All right, if you're gonna learn--we're gonna start, and you're gonna learn! Period!"

That's cor? rect, yeah. I did that for years. That came about in a kind of an odd manner. I saw it done at one point. It was after I had started. I remember I was being told to go upstairs, for--I can't remember what reason at this point. And I was playing the violin at the time. And I went upstairs. And my dad was in the living room. And I came back down--I kind of made a trip for something, either going up or coming down the stairs-- I'm after forgetting-- still playing the violin, of all things. And Dad said to me, he said, "If you can do that, you should be able to do the two things at one time. Because you're going up? stairs at an odd timing, step timing, and still being able to control and manoeuvre the time that you set playing the fiddle." And with his en? couragement we started off, and that's what I ended up doing, was play? ing and dancing at the same time. It was quite an achievement! (Let me talk to you about it being an achievement. You're growing up at a time--well, you're 14 when you do your first stage performance at a dance. You played for a dance for Bill Lamey.) Rose Croix Hall, yeah. (That's 1969. That made me think of the Beatles earlier. The music that your friends--you must have been going to school.) Oh sure, oh sure.
