It's A Great Day For The Irish ...

“It’s a great day for the Irish, it’s a great day for fair …
It’s a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
We’re feeling so inspirish, shure because for all the Irish
It’s a great, great day …

And as we go a-swinging, every Irish heart is singing
It’s a great, great day.”

               ~ “It’s A Great Day For The Irish”
                          ~ Irish-American song
             Written by Roger Edens in 1940
              for inclusion in the film version of the
                 George M. Cohan 1922 
     Broadway show “Little Nellie Kelly”

The Irish flag waves proudly on a windy St. Patrick’s Day under bright blue skies in Allentown, Pennsylvania after the flag of the Republic of Ireland was raised March 17, 2017 at City Hall Plaza.

The flag raising event was to commemorate the contributions of those of Irish heritage who helped form and grow Allentown and the greater Allentown area. 

As someone of Irish-German heritage, my green Irish eyes were smiling seeing the flag billowing downtown in the late winter breeze.

The Town In The Window ...

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
                    ~ Henri Matisse
                              ~ 1869-1954
 Beautiful flowers pop with color in the window of Fragrant Designs Florist, Belvidere, New Jersey, greeting the town reflected in the window on a rare warm February afternoon just after Valentine’s Day.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Lighting Up The Nightstand ...

“…I fell in love with you
 and then you went away
But now you’re coming home to stay
Hot dog, soon everything will be all right
Hot dog, we’re gonna have a ball tonight
I’ve got a pocketful of dimes
It’s gonna be just like old times, hot dog …”
                          ~ “Hot Dog”
              ~written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller
           ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
            on the 1957 album “Loving You”
Hot dog! It's a rare warm February evening when the iconic Jimmy's Doggie Stand lights up a winter night on the corner of Union Square in historic Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
