HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROSSINI 
...
why does the fact that your birthday falls on a Leap
Year seem so appropriate and fitting? You are probably the MOST FAMOUS
Leap
Year guy ever (the only other contenders I could dig up were an odd
group--Dinah Shore, Jimmy Dorsey, Michele Morgan, Balthus and the
coloratura soprano
Reri Grist-- incidentally she sang a mean Rosina in her day). 
Well, here's a
special serenade delivered by one of the few remaining descendants of that
turkey you so tragically dumped into Lake Como many years ago (for those of you
to whom this is  a puzzling reference look back at ROSSINIANA #2). BLO wishes you many happy returns and hopes to see you at the
BARBER opening in a few days.
