I won my first dance contest.

The year was 1954. I was 13,

The guy in the background won best D.A. in school. The girl's name was Arlene Spakowski.

The song was the Dry Marteri by Ralph Marteri.

Jack & Barb Glancy & Jim & Barb Vargo. I see Tony & Hap in the background. 8-25-2002. .

The legendary   Dick (the Pizza man) Biondi and Jim Dandy. In Reno Nevada.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope. Just me Jim Dandy, the Rockin Rage from the Golden age.

And that sweet little Angel Baby in the pink dress with her hat on is my granddaughter Stevie. And the angel who is admiring Stevie is my other granddaughter Jess.

 Tony would have a heart attack if he saw this. Steve Bloom on Tony's car. Wow!

Jim Dandy rocks with Little Miss muffler while the Bopper watches.

This was my first gig. Not one person showed up.

So we danced and had a gay time.
