Dancing with the Stars - Week 3

The tango and the jive were the chosen dances for last nights, Dancing with the Stars I have to admit that I don't always "get" the tango. Sometimes they just look stiff and pissed off to me and some of the moves make no sense to me at all. I mean what is the point of those repeated sharp head turns. Maybe if some one besides Jimmy Kimmel explained it to me, I might understand.

In the meantime, when I see a tango that is really great to me, it's usually phenomenal to the rest of the world. With that being said, I'm not sure there was a really great tango last night. While I understood that Jane Seymour's rendition was very emotional due to the death of her mother, it was still not a blazing tango in my book.

And Wayne Newton, well, I was hoping he's stay on long enough for them to go to his farm and show some of his beautiful herd of Arabian horses. They did that last night. Although they only panned one shed row with a handful of mares, that was good for my horsey fix. And my husband was pleased to point out that with Wayne having a herd of 75 Arabian horses, we actually have one third as many as Wayne. He said that like it was some great accomplishment, like maybe we were somehow keeping up with Wayne. But I quickly reminded him that we are supporting our 25 horses on nowhere near one third Wayne Newton's horse budget. Boy wouldn't that be a fantasy, one third of Wayne's horse budget to support my herd!!! That's a dream I could live with, especially since my 25 are the quality of Wayne's. But since my dream isn't what this blog is supposed to be about and there's not much chance in Wayne sharing his horse budget with me, I have to say, I'm afraid Wayne is probably the number one choice to be voted off tonight. I really like his new do and think the weight loss is looking good but I'm not sure that his great personality is going to be enough to carry him through another week. But I'm hoping...........cause I'd love to get another look at some more of Wayne's horses! AND I know he really wants to stay.

The jive on the other hand can get my juices flowing. I love the energy of the dance so it is one of my favorites. While I enjoyed last night's renditions, I can't say that there was one particular performance that jumped out at me. I know I'm not an expert but it takes more than tons of action to get me excited. I thought they were fun to watch but nothing spectacular. Geez! I'm getting to be a ballroom snob!

Thanks for stopping over come again any time. Yes they do make trees like this one but haven't seen any now for a couple of years.
Haven't been watching the dancing this time but do enjoy watching when I can.

Ahhh....wouldn't it be nice to have Wayne's budget for raising your horses?

My husband and I took dance classes several years ago and it was a hoot. Our Tango was NOT a sight that you would want to see. I'm glad that we were not on DWTS. It is so much fun to watch the stars perform the different dances.
