One of Harold’s favorite expressions was, “If this isn’t love, then maybe I’m crazy!” He often sang the words with a catchy tune. I later discovered that the song was from the Broadway musical Finian’s Rainbow. The original lyrics said: “If this isn’t love, the whole world is crazy”, but Harold’s adaptation was definitely truer to the man himself!
One of his pet projects was to get a book published of the same title. Mock-ups have been made and it’s still a project on my plate. In honor of Valentine’s Day I chose a few love photos from his seven decade career to share. I’ve added a few of his comments recorded from interviews and conversations with publishers.
Since it’s the first time in 28 years I’ve faced a Valentine’s Day without him, I’ve also taken the liberty of adding a few personal photos of the love and joy we shared together. I wish the same kind of love for everyone. Happy Valentine’s Day!
