“Love is a choice you make from moment to moment.”

- Barbara De Angelis


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   AHH - a Golden Oldie from 1963!

BONUS - Our Day Will Come - Ruby and the Romantics, 1963


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Day_Will_Come:

"Our Day Will Come" is a popular song composed by Bob Hilliard and Mort Garson, which was a No. 1 hit in 1963 for Ruby & the Romantics.

The song's composers were hoping to place "Our Day Will Come" with an established easy listening act and only agreed to let the new R&B group Ruby & the Romantics record the song after Kapp Records A&R director Al Stanton promised that if the Ruby & the Romantics' single failed Kapp would record the song with Jack Jones. Stanton cut two versions of "Our Day Will Come" with Ruby & the Romantics, one with a mid-tempo arrangement and the other in a bossa nova style; the latter version, featuring a classic Hammond organ solo, was selected for release as a single in December 1962 and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March. "Our Day Will Come" was also a chart hit in Australia (#11) and the UK (#38).[1] the Personnel on the original recording include Leroy Glover on Organ, Vinnie Bell, Al Gorgoni and Kenny Burrell on guitar, Russ Savakus on Bass, Gary Chester on drums and George Devens on Percussion...

Creative Costumes For Pets

The paint used must be animal friendly. Some of these are super cute.
I cannot see my furry friends allowing me to dress them up, so to those who get their animals to oblige - what a miracle!

   Thanks, Shari!

 Our Day Will Come

Written by Bob Hilliard  (28 Jan 1918 – 01 Feb 1971) and Mort Garson (20 July 1924 - 04 Jan 2008)

Recorded by Ruby & the Romantics, 1963


Our day will come
And we'll have everything.
We'll share the joy
Falling in love can bring.

No one can tell me
That I'm too young to know (young to know)
I love you so (love you so)
And you love me.

Our day will come
If we just wait a while.
No tears for us -
Think love and wear a smile.

Our dreams have magic
Because we'll always stay
In love this way
Our day will come.
(Our day will come; our day will come.)

[break]

Our dreams have magic
Because we'll always stay
In love this way.
Our day will come.
Our day will come.
