"Out From Behind The Lens, 2018"
What a night, a real blast from start to finish.
Special thanks to everyone who took part in making my birthday another one to remember and cherish.
From a great dinner, to thoughtful cards, special gifts, scrumptious cake, and fantastic dancing too.
Thanks also to DJ Mark for playing my music. To Big Ron Morrison, and Scott Michelli for capturing the majority of the images included here.
I am responsible for the people shots before the actual celebration and dance, and the editing and post production of the collection, but Ron and Scott made it all possible.
Also a big shout out and heartfelt thanks to Disco John Salmons for capturing it all on video. I hope to be able to make the video available for viewing soon, as well.
Saving the best for last: Hugs, kisses, (if you didn't get yours, I'll certainly be back) and sincere appreciation to all the lovely ladies who came out on my special night to dance and/or express their good wishes.
None of this would be possible without them.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
Peace and Love, and Keep Dancing.
Big Ron returns for more cake, dancing, and fun.

Wow! That was four years ago and that smile hasn't faded a bit.

"The Last Dance"
What a way to wind up an era.
We celebrated this night, not only with our last double feature, (Dawn and Jie) but also our last theme night, (White Night), to ever be held at Michael's Cafe, as the doors were to be closed forever just three weeks and a few nights later on May 27th.
Jie will forever hold the distinction of having danced the last ever, hustle night, birthday dance at Michael's Cafe.
It is with bitter-sweet feelings that we leave our familiar haunt with so many varied and numerous, memories we have shared over the last 20+ years.
It has been my pleasure to capture, preserve, and share many of these memories with all of you over the years. And, it is my hope that you have enjoyed viewing them as much as I have enjoyed bringing them to you.
In the near future I will be compiling some of my favorite images and memories, as well as perhaps other surprises and some interesting statistical trivia as it relates to the many birthday dances we have all so much enjoyed.
Let us raise a glass to Michael's Cafe for providing us a venue that we have appreciated, and will never forget.
Until we meet again.....Keep Dancing !

Not only was it "White Night" at Michael's, unbeknownst to us, it was also the last night that any birthday celebrations would be held at our favorite venue, where we have danced the night away for the past 20+ years.
Michael's would close it's doors for good just 3 weeks later. Dawn's was the first of two birthday celebrations this night.
May 24, 2017, the end of an era. An incredible run of 20+ years of hustle dancing came to an end.
These are but a small segment of the many dancers and friends who came out to celebrate the good times we have had over the years.
As we now look forward to the future, and a new venue, hope to see you there.
"Disco Dave 2017"
Disco Dave, my fellow Aries birthday person is back to rock the house once again.
Obviously, he had a good time.
