They look as though they’re enjoying themselves. We don’t know where they are. The gentleman is a Scottish dancer. The lady is Scottish too. She is happy and likes to dance too.
Mary O’Grady, their teacher, has gone to a restaurant, and the couple are waiting there. Lance doesn’t understand why Mary O’Grady isn’t in the picture.
They look elegant. It’s taking place a long time ago. Their clothes are old-fashioned but they look nice. There are plenty of people around. The couple look very popular and they like the good life.
The lady on the left is called Mary Dimitra and the man is called Vlashi, like Maria’s parents. He likes to sing and the lady likes to dance. They are talking to each other. It’s an overcast day. There are no sounds but there are smells.
Roberta would like to straighten the man’s hat because it’s crooked. They are wearing Scottish clothes and they have seven children. They are dressed to go somewhere—very nice! Margaret doesn’t know where—“not as yet”. Pam thinks they may be going to a birthday party (not a big party) or they may be going to a park. Maybe they are going for a walk somewhere. Maybe the boy loves the girl.
Peggy sees what looks like a horse in the background. They are going to a dance at the Kolonaki. Nicholas says: “They must be happy”!
