Good morning Captain

"Good morning Captain, won't you come on out and play. Wake up the sunshine and share this brand new day"...Captain Kangaroo was definitely part of my younger Janice routines every morning. Also the reason we all avoided green jeans, no one wanted to be called Mr. Green Jeans!! This song was running through my head this morning, so I strolled down memory lane-AKA, youtube-and discovered exactly the right song.

People younger than me...you will probably never have even heard of Captain Kangaroo-I am so sorry. Think Mister Rogers, only cooler with fewer wardrobe changes. (I loved Mister Rogers too, but you could not admit to watching that show at school.)

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunshine.

I do remember Captain Kangaroo. But I loved Mr. Rogers the most. A few weeks ago I thought I'd record it for Diego. He couldn't take it. And I didn't blame him. Why did I like it so much?

I loved Captain Kangaroo too! And Mister Rogers.....but don't tell anyone.:)

My oldest son loved Mister Rogers, and it greatly "concerned" my husband.:)

Thanks for your comments this morning. I also love the woman at the well story. If you are interested, I wrote about her the last two Fridays. I would love to hear your thoughts on that story as well.....There is so much we can learn from each other.

Have a great day.
God Bless,
Amy:)
