Shagging in the Past



Student
You've said that you regarded respectability as one of the
prime enemies of individualism.  Do you regard love as 
an enemy of individualism?

Faulkner
No, no --  What's love got to do with respectability?

I posted this video in April of 2012 with Al Green's lyrics.  Seems appropriate to repost today.

I remember heading down to Myrtle Beach for a long weekend with two cars of Army buddies when I was stationed at Ft Bragg.  I was 20 and wound up dancing with a frosted blonde in her forties. She had long pink nails and held a Schlitz 'Tall Boy' in one hand and an Eve cigarette in the other. She taught me how to shag.

The past is never dead. It's not even past.  William Faulkner

I didnt learn to shag until WL in 81, but I didnt have that sort of woman to teach me. Well done my friend....

JT, Facebook: The Pad at Ocean Drive & Sonny's Pavilion Reunion. Book: Shag The Legendary Dance Of The South by Bo Bryan. (www.booksprice.com) & (www.shagthebook.com or perhaps .org) The book briefly describes the antics of Ft. Braggians at White Lake, NC in the late 40s and early 50s during the genesis of what later became shag dancing. Regards, and all that, Ta'er

Thanks, Ta'er. Did not know it went that far back. I'll look for the book.

Going through a divorce case is very heart broken when you love your partner with the whole of your heart.. My husband left me for a total stranger and I could not imagine what the hell was happening because everything looks like a dream to me. I was lost and confused about my life without any way to get a solution to make my husband see reasons with me that I love him so much. I was very depressed and desperate to win back my husband and I searched on GOOGLE for help about my situation and I got recommended to Lord Zakuza who is a powerful spell caster for he has so many magnificent testimonies and reviews on the internet from different people all over the world. I got in touch with him and I poured out my sorrowful heart to him and he encouraged and promised to help me out. He gave me some instructions of which a adhered to and within 48 hours of contacting Lord Zakuza my attorney called me to get me informed that the divorce case has been cancelled and I got a call from my husband 30 minutes after I finished speaking to my attorney. My husband and I are so much in Love with endless care and happiness and I so much thank Lord Zakuza for doing this for me and I know people out there might also need their partner or lovers back or want to get pregnant for your partner or husband. So, you can text or WhatsApp Lord Zakuza on +1 740-573-9483 for a change or story in your love life. Cheers!!!
