I Wanna Dance With You, Twirl You All Around The Floor...

For Summer's and my birthday, our husbands invited our friends out to Oplin for a night of good ole country dancing. For those who don't know, Oplin is a small (almost non-existent) town that has remodeled an old high school gym to be a country dance hall. You pay a few bucks to get in, but that covers the cost of a potluck style meal at intermission. There is a country band that performs (the band members are all older), and most of the people there are older. It is so precious watching elderly couples dance and smile together. We had such a blast two-steppin' the night away, and I even learned some new line dances!

Ohhh Oplin! What amazing wonderful memories I have of that place. The very fact that it is still available to you makes me jealous! The Grand Old Oplin!!!

I didn;t realize that Oplin was still the place to be. we went there often when i was at ACU in 95 - long time ago! Fun seeing your pictures. i went to school with Zac in Abilene. had fun looking at pictures of your family.
