Joe, you are pretty awesome but your brother. He is not light on his feet.

I don't think I'm adopted because I look just like my ma ape with the stumpy legs and the junk in the trunk.

A regular Gregory Hines. PeeWee can tap dance. Me? My attempts tend to turn into break dancing on those slippery floors.

Hey, Joey you are pretty good. Tan Torkelson needs more practice, which will help a lot with the ...rounder ...aspect of his physique.

You two make great tap dancers! BTW, watch out for that cat coming over your wall. When our pawrents lived in Mesa, their cat dragged a bunny over the wall and drownded it in their pool! BAD kitty! Mom couldn't figure out how in the world a bunny got inside a 6 foot high concrete block wall...then Dad gave her the bad news! My point being...if the kitties can get in, so can the Beast!

So. Here's our question. Did you ever take lessons from Arthur Duncan? Or watch videos of his fancy footwork? More importantly ... do you need to Google him to find out who we're talkin' about?

We THINK we have that name right...
