Make it brief.

I'm just popping my head in to put up a short post. My husband just returned after a long week on a beach somewhere -- don't feel sorry for him, it was a company meeting, no spouses allowed (I know, what a bum deal for me, right?!) -- so we are going to spend the rest of the evening with him, and introduce our three-year-old to this...



This was always my favorite of all the Muppet movies. My favorite scene is Miss Piggy and Kermie riding their bikes through the park. Man, the Muppets were a huge part of my childhood. Remember the good old days, when the Muppet Show was on every Saturday night? I totally wish they still had quality family shows like that on. My family would get pizza (EVERY Saturday night was pizza night from as long as I can remember until I graduated and moved out of the house), and we would watch the Muppet Show, the Mandrell Sisters, and Solid Gold. And if I was good I got to stay up and watch The Love Boat. Whatever happened to quality TV programming and family shows on Saturday nights?

OMG, I remember those nights! I would sneek into my mom & dads room at night to watch Love Boat, because they never let me stay up that late (I was never good :D).

I remember fondly seeing the muppet movies at the drive ins - mattress in the back of the van, huge brown paper back with grease spots full of popcorn, the swingsets under the screen...
