The Cause of Lightening (and Happy Birthday Fred Astaire)

At Urban Hounds we are not fond of the rain, preferring to stay inside on the couch when its starts to drizzle.

 But... unlike many dogs we are not afraid of thunder and lightening.    The reason is because of a movie our mom loves, Top Hat, starring Fred Astaire, (whose birthday was today). Thanks to that movie (which mom has watched about 100 times) we know just what causes thunder and lightening (and it doesn't have anything to do with the air.) 

 Sadly, we couldn't find the full dance on you tube.... so we are posting another one of our favorite Fred dances.

  1. Comfy couch on a rainy day...sounds great to me. I'm always ready for a good nap.


  2. Happy Birthday Fred Astaire! He is a true classic!

  3. Happy Birthday Fred Astaire

  4. Oh, to watch Fred Astaire dance and to wag a dance, too. Bliss.

  5. What a coincidence!! Not only does the Lady Of The House LOVE Fred Astaire films, but when the Man Of The House came home tonight I heard him talking to her about a musical version of Top Hat that is on in London's West End -

    She has some theatre tokens from her birthday and they might be thinking of going. Apparently Fred's daughter and Irving Berlin's family have seen it and think it's good so it must be OK.

    Love and licks, Winnie
