Magpie Tales # 61


Dancing the hot dishwashin' Tango


With that sexy Mango Man of mine


It's nifty thrifty kitchen fun


with a last gasp glass of wine.

Hi Kathe~ Love it! So great to see someone drinking wine in their own home with their own husband and calling it the hot dishwashin' tango! You really need to put this to music--great rhythm!

Fun piece... dishwashin' tango sounds so much more creative than standing, placing, wiping back and forth like wipers on a rainy road.
