Happy Birthday!

Harvey Ball was born 7/10/1921
(died April 13, 2001)

He was awarded the Bronze Star for heroism at the Battle of Okinawa and invented the Smiley Face in 1963 for an employee relations gimick. The free-lance artist was paid $45. Later he owned an advertising firm.
         Give a little giggle, grin a little grin
        Do your imitation of a Smiley Face pin
        Open up your heart and let the sun shine in
        Then share it with your neighbors and your next of kin (2x)

                "The Smiley Face Song" ©1998 Charlie Ball (Harvey's son)

Ball further contributed his genius to the advent and growth of World Smile Day® on the first Friday in October. It was supported by his International World Smile Corporation. We're not clear the Foundation long survived his death but many communities still celebrate it. [We used to find it at Text & notes - Tune]

And while you're singing this great song, you mght as well sing it at the Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash & Round Robin Songfest tonight at CB's 313 Gallery, 313 Bowery, New York City, 7 to 9 PM

(There are a bunch of birthdays today, I must say, Lovely Liz Dyer, Arlo, Bela Fleck, Blind Boy Fuller, Cheryl Wheeler)
