Wednesday's Word

Today's word is a fun word from when I was but a youngster. The word is Fraggle. That's right I said Fraggle.

Actual meaning: Well, there is no actual meaning for this word apparently

Meaning to me: a lovely little creature on the show Fraggle Rock that made me smile many times in my youth

I know this word seems weird, but I'm really excited about it today. Why? Well because I just bought the first season of Fraggle Rock on DVD. Not entirely for myself, really, though the show still does make me smile. I really bought it for my niece and nephew. I mean, they can't grow up without knowing about Fraggle Rock. It's one of the best kid's shows of all time. Seriously I don't know why it's not still on TV.
So how about you? What shows do you remember from your youth? Or maybe it's not a show, maybe its a game or a book. What were your favorite things as a youngster?

Hmm...a show from my childhood...Sound of Music! I can't remember how many times I watched that movie. I knew all the words to every song and sung them with enthusiasm! :)

I loved watching flipper way back when. I would go to sleep at night dreaming I was swimming with flipper.

OK...that's too cute! Do you know that I have the lyrics to the Fraggle Rock song on my desk?!! One of my staff put it on my computer so it would play every time I signed in the morning...

"Dance your cares away,
Worry's for another day.
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock......."

We just got The Muppet Movie on Netflix and it was great. You're right...I wonder why Fraggle Rock is not on TV in syndication? I'm sure a ton of people would watch it.

I LOVED Fraggle Rock when I was a kid! I also couldn't live without Pinwheel. Did you watch that? I still sing the theme song occasionally...

"Pinwheel, Pinwheel
spinning around
look through my pinwheel
and see what I found..."

I remember my kids watching Fraggle Rock! They loved it so much. Where did you find the CD? I'd love to get it for my grandsons.
