Ahhhh… the memories. Don’t ask

Ahhhh… the memories. Don’t ask me why, but for some reason I just left Mr. Rodger’s Neighborhood on when I was flipping channels. And it brought a few questions to mind. Do you think he ever considered just wearing the tennis shoes & the sweater to the show instead of making that big production about changing them? I always wondered that when I was a kid. Why wear dress shoes there and then put on tennis shoes? And then change them again when you leave? It always seemed odd. And is it just me, or does that closing song still make everyone feel happy even as an adult? “It’s such a good feeling, to know you’re alive. It’s such a happy feeling, you’re growing inside. And when you wake up, ready to say I think I’ll make a snappy today (snap, snap), it’s such a good feeling, a very good feeling. A feeling you know that I’ll be back when the day is new, and I’ll have more ideas for you. And you’ll have things you’ll want to talk about, and I will too.” I just have to sing along every time I hear it. Then his little closing speech, “You always make each day a special day by just your being yourself! That’s right! I like being with you!” Awwww, shucks. I make each day a special day! Man, that warm fuzzy feeling is still nice, even when you are no longer a kid. Maybe that’s it – it makes you feel like a kid at heart, still safe & secure, knowing that Mr. Rodgers will be back. Hmmmm. Well, it’s still a nice way to start out the day! Come on everyone – sing along!
