Dance lessons with Felix the Cat

Hello everyone

It's a foggy Saturday over here, and there's a strong feeling of winter's arrival in the air.. that got me thinking about forthcoming days and what's it like around the globe.
While most of you are counting the last week before Halloween, over here, we're not carving pumpkins to decorate doorways.. but to make pies - OK, some pumpkins do find their way to front doors, because our folks are slowly absorbing international ways of life. I suppose in a few odd years, we too will have orange lanterns, small skeletons and cure ghosts around our streets.. but so far, it's just the smell of roasted pumpkins that is marking this period of year.

Now, regarding this post:
I have nothing to say in my defense, besides this: what better way to get your blood running, to get your body warmer and to get some much needed physical activity (doctor seem to recommend a great deal of it).. than to dance around your home - with Felix the Cat leading the way?! 

Lose your boundaries at the front door,
you're free to do whatever you want in your home,
take a look at this article... and SHAKE it!

Mind me: wouldn't this be a great costume; for someone who's not afraid to a little bit more, and leave next to nothing to imagination? :) ..and they dare saying that the 1960s were mad-times?! 

I hope you're laughing.. and dancing along with me; because this life of ours is not worth living unless you allow yourself to have FUN.
Enjoy Saturday.

    1. Yeah, right?
      It's a swell way to amuse yourself.

  2. What fun! Thanks for sharing x

    1. That's true, dear.
      Some days all you need is a bit of Felix. :)

  3. Seriously cute! In the course of searching for vintage Halloween photos this year, I encountered at least a couple that included kids, wayyyy back in the day, in Felix the cat costumes. It's always exciting to see that the stars (real or cartoon) of the day were big on the costume front back then, too.

  4. Well, I've got the music - perhaps I should learn the dance to go with it.

    (If I recall, Louise Brooks was the first person to dance the Black Bottom in a film.)
