Do You Remember Ginger Rogers? (Don’t Underestimate An Old Broad)


Watch and enjoy (link) Don’t Under Estimate An Old Broad   I was sent a video  and  email stating the video is of  Ginger Rogers, age ninty-two.  When I watched this video I was blown completely away.  I can’t say it is or isn’t Ginger Rogers, but whomever it is, astonishes me.  I wouldn’t have imagaed in my wildest dreams a ninty-two year old woman could make the moves this woman does.  Ginger Rogers was born July 16, 1911, in Independence, Missouri.   Her real name was Virginia Katherine McMath.  Ginger started danceing about the time she could walk.  By the age of fourteen she was touring .  She one the Texas State Charleston Contest and a chance to perfrom on the Interstate Theater Circuit for four weeks.  It last longer than four weeks.

I grew up in the 1950’s watching Ginger dance with Fred Astaire.  Even at a young age I loved watching the two of them dance together. They moved together as well as seperatly complementing each other.  They demonstrated to the world how two people working together can make something wonderful.

The woman in this video has been blessed by God.  She is dancing with her twenty-six year old great-grandson and doesn’t miss a beat.  Watch the video and enjoy.  It is a sight to see.  That’s my two-cents for today

Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.
  • My grandmother used to say that Ginger Rogers could do everything Fred Astaire could do. Only she did backwards in high heels.

  • Wicked Witch says:

    Just for the record, she died in 1995 at age 83. I don’t believe she ever had any children (all five marriages ended in divorce).
