“... I wanna go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon…
You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
And bells to be rung
And a wonderful fling to be flung …”
~ “You Make Me Feel So Young”
~ 1946 popular song composed by
Josef Myrow, lyrics by Mack Gordon
~ recorded by the wonderful Frank Sinatra
The rising moon of a beautiful mid-November evening indeed looks the size of a toy balloon you could bounce over the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

“Blue moon, blue moon, blue moon
Keep shining bright,
Blue moon, keep on shining bright
You’re gonna bring me back my baby tonight,
Blue moon, keep shining bright.
I said Blue Moon of Kentucky
keep on shining …”
~ “Blue Moon of Kentucky”
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
The Blue Moon Brewing Company helps keep spirits shining bright at the 10th annual Blues, Brews & Barbecue in downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania June 10, 2017 … a tad before summer but a great way to kick off the season with the sounds of the blues & the taste of brews and barbecue!
I blended a street scene photo I shot at the festival of a Blue Moon beer truck with a Blue Moon I captured shining over Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown on July 31, 2015.
A Blue Moon is defined as any time there is a second full moon in a calendar month, according to NASA. The next will occur January 2, 2018.
“Blue Moon of Kentucky” is the official Bluegrass song of Kentucky, written by Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass,” in 1946.
The great Elvis Presley – an artist who occurs “once in a blue moon,” – recorded his fantastic rockabilly version in 1954.
