85 and Still Dancing

Jan says she is feeling very old and tired, so we decided to cheer her up. We found this wonderful video to show her what she could be doing if she really wanted to. Or if her joints would bend without creaking. Wait, she has two left feet. Forget this idea for her. She'd probably break something and we'd be orphans.

But for the rest of you whose humans are feeling old, perhaps this will perk them up. And thanks, Evelyn.

We know it isn't furry related but since we all have to deal with grumpy, dragging, complaining, I-don't-have-the-energy-to-fill-the-water-bowl humans, we felt this is appropriate to post on JFF.

Meet Dorothy Dale Kloss, the oldest showgirl in the world. She's 85 years young.

  1. There is something very wrong with our Mommy she said watching the video made her feel tired and is mumbling that we woke her up to early. It's not our fault the Daddy called at dark thirty. ~S,S,C & F

  2. Mum says that watching the video just made her even more tired. She's no fun. We're going to put her to bed now,

  3. That is one inspiring woman!

  4. The Woman says sometimes she feels like that. Yoga helps... I mean for feeling like Jan not like she can dance...

  5. I wish I was as dedicated to fitness as she is!

  6. I'm sure one day that will be Jan ;-)

    Tank woo fur sharing!


  7. Wow that is one fit lady.. Hugs GJ x

  8. She is just amazing, isn't she? Our Mom says forget it, she can't even walk up the stairs without tripping and hurting herself.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  9. Keep dancing, Jan, or at least be inspired! SS is exhausted just looking.

  10. Mama just wishes she could be that lucky.
    But she always says she has two left feet, and that just doesn't make any sense.
    Being that agile as a senior citizen is, however, very lucky.

  12. Wow! My mom is 55 and can't do that!!

  13. OMD! My mom is half her age and she is not able to dance for 30 seconds!
    Kisses and hugs
