Happy Birthday, Gene Kelly!
American dancer, actor and Academy Award winner (1951) Eugene Curran Kelly was born on August 23, 1912. Gene Kelly starred in several classic films, including An American in Paris, Anchors Aweigh, Brigadoon, For Me and My Gal, Inherit the Wind, Invitation to the Dance, Les Girls, On the Town, Pal Joey, Singin' in the Rain and Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
To honor this occasion, today’s Meme Express prompt is all about “Singin’ in the Rain.”
Do you love the rain . . . or hate it?
Have you ever sung, danced or simply played in the rain?
What do you like best about a rainy day?
Have you ever thought about the rain (or a storm) as a metaphor for life?
In your post, feel free to use the images and questions or not.
Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)
Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
