Mr. Rogers Neighborhood

Sitting here watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood with Astrid. I was channel flipping when I came to the show that was just starting and I had to stop.

"I used to watch this show when I was a kid," I told Astrid.

"Really? When you were little you were watching this?" Astrid asked.

"Yep. It was my favorite show," I said.

"But it's over," Astrid said.

"No it's not. It's just starting. Watch he's going to sing 'It's a Beautiful Neighborhood'," I said.

And lo and behold Mr. Rogers starting singing his signature song as he put on his sweater and sneakers.

Now he's taking us on a field trip to meet Itzhak Perlman, the great Israeli-American violinist and conductor who contracted polio at the age of 4 and uses crutches to walk.

I still love Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

I loved Mister Rogers' Neighborhood when I was a kid and still do many years later. Wish they were still airing reruns. :(
