Originally written for a friend who wanted a reverse-progression dance (see also "Backed Into a Corner"). I later improved it, and in the process turned it into a normal progression dance. Of the dances I have written, I most often call this one.
Note: the version in CDSS News #138, 1997 contains some errors. The version here is correct.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
