Sisters Wedding Dance

How old am I? Well, you're gonna find out. I have always loved Rosemary Clooney. She was born in Kentucky in May of 1928. She did her best work singing standards for Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, George and Ira Gershwin. She became one of America's best-known popular singers in 1951 with a song called ''Come-on-a-My House,'' which was a huge hit record, and followed that with other novelties like ''Mambo Italiano''.

In 1954 she appeared with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye singing Irving Berlin songs in ''White Christmas.''

In later years she had been appearing in the best cabarets and on concert stages, singing pop-jazz standards that earned her new audiences and renewed respect. She got especially great reviews at Michael's Pub in Manhattan (remember when we hung out with Woody Allen there?)

She was nominated for an Emmy award for an appearance on ''E.R.,'' and she was given a lifetime achievement Grammy award a month after she was hospitalized for lung cancer surgery.

And, of course, she was George's Aunt.

So, enjoy this - another song of hers I really liked - by these two darling sisters . . .

I Heart You

Who knew?

I really hesitated last summer when I sacrificed my beautiful elephant ear leaf for this birdbath casting, but, it still speaks . . .


I was thinking the same thing !

When I opened my cupboard this afternoon, I couldn't help but hum this song from Gigi...
"Every time I see a little girl of five or six or seven

I can't resist a joyous urge to smile and say thank heaven-
Thank heaven for little girls who grow bigger every day
thank heaven for little girls who grow in the most delightful way...
thank heaven for them all, no matter where, no matter who,
for without them what would little boys do?"...Learner and Lowe
(what's in your cupboard? fun things I know...)

and the night is very large and full of wonders.”
