For Frank Simeone and Victoria ...

For Frank Simeone and Victoria Lewis of the Noe Valley class. I taught The Merry Lads of Ayr prior to an upcoming party and apparently I didn’t enunciate clearly enough. I found Frank chuckling when he saw the dance name printed on the program because he realized that the name was different from what he had thought it was.

Music: A rakish reel.
