Today is Fred Astaire's birthday! He was born May 10, 1899 and died on June 22, 1987. I have loved him since I was a teenager. He had such style, and such a joyful way of dancing that when I was studying dance he was my inspiration.
I have put on some songs of him singing that I love. He had such a funny, sweet voice. Stan gave me an album of his a few years ago that I love to play, and wanted to share with you here.
This first picture is one that when I was in high school my sister and friend Paul had blown up into a huge poster for my bedroom. It's always been one of my favorites. If you get a chance to watch some of Fred's movies, please take the opportunity. You will have a good time.
So happy birthday Fred! I'm glad you were in the world and a part of my life. I think the world is a little sadder without you in it.
