Did you know today May 10th is Fred Astaire's Birthday?
Weasley didn't and its an important day around here.
|Weasley: "Who the heck is this Fred Astaire?"|
|Norbert: "Fred Astaire is mom's favorite movie star. He made 41 films, ten with his most famous partner Ginger Rogers. These statues show Fred and Ginger from the film the Barkely's of Broadway."|
Tubby: "She has his autobiography Steps in Time and I know she had read it more then once." (Mom note: If you are for some reason interested the newer book The Astaires: Fred and Adele is also really interesting, its all about Fred's early career and relationship with his dancing partner sister .)
|Ping: "And of course mom has all the DVDs of his best films, and we will be watching them tonight!"|

Now if only Fred had been waiting around with an umbrella on Wednesday, during this beautiful rainstorm:
Enjoy your day, rain or shine!
