Today, February 28, is my birthday.

Born 57 years ago in the year 1955, in a little town in upstate New York. 

That was a good year, as the original Disneyland opened and the wonderful Captain Kangaroo kid's show made it's TV debut.           (I loved Mr. Moose and the ping pong balls falling on the Captain!)

Something that's always tickled me was on an old I Love Lucy episode.
In the episode where they are in Paris,  Lucy wants a Jacques Marcel designer dress and Ricky says no. If you listen closely, Ricky reads an old promissory note from Lucy swearing off the need for any other designer dress and the date is read as  "February 28, 1955"!

The top song that year, for the month of February, was "Sincerely" by the McGuire Sisters.

Since I'm pretty much alone in  life, I thought I would take a bold step and ask you to join me in a virtual birthday party!

 Let's dance to a 1955 hit song TUTTI FRUTTI!                                                                                                                                                                                             http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFq5O2kabQo   

Thanks! That was fun!
