First called at the barn (outside of Urbana, IL) of Kathy and Tom Anderson--during one of their occasionally hosted Sunday potlucks and dances
Susan Burt, who declared the dance quite "neat," asked me its name.
Not having named it yet, I invited her to suggest one, and without hesitation she replied "George?"

(Composed August 1999)
