Mansie was fond of dancing and attended dances even in his later years.  He was an accomplished dancer, though his usual footwear consisted of a pair of hefty boots. Mansie told a friend of waking up one morning after a dance at which he'd had a drop too much to drink, and found himself unable to recall any of the evening's events. Using the royal 'we', which he frequently adopted, he added, "But when we woke up and saw that we still had wir boots on, we kent we'd had a good night!"
