Mondays at the Laurel
a duple improper contra by David Kirchner

With handy hand, balance neighbor (4)
Handy-hand allemande 3/4 until actives meet in center (4)
Begin hey, starting actives left shoulder (8)

Finish hey (8)
Swing neighbor

Circle left 3/4 (8)
Swing partner (8)

Long lines forward and back (8)
Ladies chain across (8)

Notes: Never called. The handy hand is unwieldy for half of the dancers after the chain, and I have since danced a dance with a hey crossing the phrase and don't like how it feels.
