4. H&H Flip Pad & Pen Set - Be Happy!
This pen set reminds me of my Uncle’s favorite song, the Bluebird of Happiness. Do you remember that old tune? The lyrics by Edward Heyman and Harry Parr-Davies go like this …
So be like I, hold your head up high
Till you find a bluebird of happiness
You will find greater peace of mind
Knowing there’s a bluebird of happiness
And when he sings to you
Though you’re deep in blue
You will see a ray of light creep through
And so remember this, life is no abyss
Somewhere there’s a bluebird of happiness
(Partial lyrics here; listen to the song on YouTube)
