Kick It Up A Notch ...




“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”
                ~ Katherine Hepburn
                          ~ 1907-2003

The well-known song says “Get your kicks on Route 66,” but this bagpiper kicks it up a notch and clearly shows you can get your kicks wearing a kilt – whoop !

I spotted this Adams Outdoor Advertising billboard on Nineteenth Street in the quaint West End Theatre District of Allentown, Pennsylvania.

It’s advertising the 29th Annual Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival September 23-25, 2016 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Celtic Cultural Alliance hosts the event, which I can personally say was much fun as usual, and a great way to kick off autumn!

Sundae In New York ...


"New York on Sunday
Big city taking a nap
Slow down, it's Sunday
Life's a ball, let it fall in your lap.

If you've got troubles
Just take them out for a walk
They'll burst like bubbles
In the fun of a Sunday in New York."
                  ~ "Sunday In New York"  
      ~Composed by Peter Nero
 for the 1963 film  "Sunday In New York"
                              & 
    Recorded by the wonderful Bobby Darin 

It's not Sunday but instead Sundae fun-time
in New York as people line up at a cheery
ice cream truck for shakes, sundaes and cones
on a sunny April day in Lower Manhattan.

Shilly-Shally ...



"If you never did you should.
These things are fun. And fun is good."
                   ~ Dr. Seuss
                         (Theodore Seuss Geisel)
                                      ~ 1904-1991 

This sweet little girl could heed these words of Dr. Seuss  as she seems to shilly-shally and dilly-dally over whether to give her hula hoop a whirl in this candid capture on a chilly April day at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.   


The hula hoop is a toy hoop that is twirled around the waist, limbs or neck. The modern hula hoop
was invented in 1958 by Arthur K. "Spud" Melin and Richard Knerr, but children and adults around the world have played with hoops, twirling, rolling and throwing them throughout history.

Follow That Dream ...



"I've got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I've got to follow that dream to find the love I need ...

But when a dream is calling you,
There's just one thing that you can do 

Well, you gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
You gotta follow that dream to find the love you need

Keep a-movin, move along, keep a moving ..."
                         ~ "Follow That Dream"
    ~    from the 1962 musical film
                     "Follow That Dream"
               ~recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                  
This Slinky follows it's dream to spring toward the rolling hills of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania
on a beautiful summer day, a great reminder to always follow that dream!

Slinky is a toy, a precompressed helical spring invented and developed by naval engineer Richard T. James in 1943.
