Swing dancing in the 1940s
A Time Extraordinaire
Ralph and Ruth had been married for almost 70 years. When Ruth came across a photo of them swing dancing as a young couple, they joined hands and bowed their heads.
The night before the couple had reminisced about those ‘classier’ times.
They agreed that architecture, clothing, and dance were works of art in ‘their day’ and that the ‘modern’ world was growing increasingly ugly reflecting the moral decay in a society once vibrant and hopeful.
A tear rolled down Ruth’s cheek at so much loss they had witnessed but Ralph, in his own beautiful fashion, tickled her behind the ear and turned on the Turner Classic Movie Channel. Their hearts soared watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers as Ralph sang along softly in Ruth’s ear.

Probably one reason things seemed better was that we had just helped Europe win a war, and everyone was jubilant
