Sunrise Serenade: It's A Hap-Hap-Happy Day - And An Update

This morning's Sunrise Serenade was "It's A Hap-Hap-Happy Day" by Teddy Stauffer and his Original Teddies.  Click on the song title to listen courtesy of Jazz On Line.

This song was in my head because my daughter, Colleen, has recently become a fan of the 1939 Fleischer Studios animated film, Gulliver's Travels, which features the song.  I've heard her singing it around the house.

You will have no doubt noticed the decreasing frequency of posts here on the SSS.  It started some time ago, with just more things to do at work, at home and with the family.  Within the past two weeks or so, the Coronavirus has wreaked unprecedented disruption on the daily routines of many people, including yours truly.  A broken right ankle didn't help the situation.  Working from home, schooling from home, and limited mobility have reduced my time substantially.  It is my hope, however, to get the Sunrise Serenades back on a regular basis, and start putting other content back on the blog again.

I encourage everyone, if at all possible in your individual situations, to stay at home, only go out for absolutely essential activities, and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others during any interaction.  I'm hopeful that if everyone works together, we can see the peak of this pandemic sooner rather than later.

Stay safe.
