The little ballerina on the left directly facing the camera at ballet dress rehearsal at the Civic Center in Panama City Beach, Florida, is my great niece Ashley Moffett.  (Or is that grand niece?  Anyway, even though I’m not old enough yet to have grandkids, I do have a passel of grand nephews and nieces.)

Now where did this child get the genes for ballet?  (Certainly not from anything connected to this old uncle!  If he were out there on that floor, folks would call the show Mary “Poopins” instead of Mary Poppins.

But anyway, it’s refreshing to see the younger branch of the family adding to the family lore with such gentility and grace. 

Hey, Ashley–You go, girl!
