Was Sue Ellen far gone or just too far south?

Dear Doris,

I write to you from Dallas, Texas where it occurs to me that Sue Ellen Ewing may have had a bad rap. Here, the weather is damnably humid meaning that anyone venturing even one glass of wine is likely to keel over backwards in a drunken daze, upper lip beaded and hair expanding by the micro-second. Poor Sue Ellen wasn’t a lush, she was just too, too far south.

I wanted to share with you a clip that the Cackler and I have been enjoying as part of our keep fit routine–and to celebrate the five year anniversary of Youtube.

We now seek to emulate the Ross sisters and need a third to take our Solid Potato Salad routine public. It took us a couple of days to master some of the trickier moves and, given that you have a couple of decades on us, we’re prepared to wheel you on the farm cart if you feel that some of the gravity-defying gyrations are now a little beyond you.  Be sure to watch right to the end–these girls are nothing if not flexible.

    My goodness, what a routine and how lucky you are, still to be supple enough to emulate these girls. I assume you are teasing when you make mention of needing a third member for your dance troop. Impracticalities of locations aside, I once broke my wrist flushing the toilet too hard so I am by no means an obvious choice; over the years I’ve had more breaks than Evel Knievel.

    The weather here is gorgeously bone-warming, prompting me to turn down the thermostat for the first time this summer. DBLW is set to take full advantage of the hot spell with our range of lightweight printed pantaloons and ethically sourced tee shirts (I don’t actually know where they come from, but I dealt with the distributor in a very courteous manner).

    I do enjoy following your travels and you must share with us your photographs of Dallas. Have a lovely, restful weekend.

    With kind thoughts,
