Dancing with the Stars - We Knew Her When
Segue to some years back. We were traveling on one of our famous wanders. In Wyoming we visited Devil's Tower or as the Indians call it, Bearlodge. We had hiked around the base of the tower and watched climbers. It was a pretty warm day. Just outside the park entrance there was a small store with various tourist items for sale. What attracted us after our hike was ice cream. We bought towering cones piled high with ice cream and went outside to sit on the porch and watch the prairie dog colony nearby. A very handsome family came into the store, bought cones and soon joined us on the porch. Anna remarked on how lovely the children were. The children were beautiful ranging from about five to twenty-one. It turned out that thefamily was Mormon and were on a vacation before the boy friend of the oldest girl went off to do his mission. The mother said that she was a dance teacher from Salt Lake. We mentioned seeing a program on television that featured child dancers and that some of them had been from this family. There were nine children altogether. The mother asked the two youngest, a boy about five and a girl about six, if they would dance for us. They obliged by doing a little cha-cha for us. The girl was the vivacious Ashly that danced on Dancing with the Stars. What a small world.
