I was going through some old bins over the weekend & came across something quite special..why it was in an old bin is another story.
20 yrs ago, I’d sent Mister Rogers some flowers and my first little puppy, Blue, to thank him for inviting me to Pittsburgh and for showing me around his set. Shortly after I’d sent the gift, I’d received a photo of Daniel Tiger seated with Blue, in front of the flowers.
Just under the photo was a touching note from Fred.
Fred Rogers was authentic. The REAL deal.
He undoubtedly brightened my neighborhood as well as millions of others.
With all of our flaws and business, make sure to brighten someone’s world today!
Oh this made me grin ear to ear! HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!
See Aimee, it pays to clean out your garage! You never know what you’ll find.
I am going to send you a pic of my garage and I think you will have a VERY DIFFERENT OPINION.
If it’s anything like mine, I completely understand!
I See That You Found Something You Got From Fred Rogers Sadly I Never Wrote Him One Single Fan Mail Letter And Mailed To His Address But It Was Nice That He Cares So Much About His Coworkers Friends Family And Helped Created Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood And Talked About Feelings And Subjects That Some Children Were Afraid To Talk With There Parents About He Is Too Kind And His Wife And Kids Along With Grandson You Must Also Know As Well. Enjoy The Rest Of This Week/Weekend And I’m Hopeful That You Had A Down Right Terrific Day Angela. 😄
Aw, man, how awesome is that?!? I grew up watching Mr. Rogers (never mind, when!) makes me want to clean out my garage (almost!)
Thanks for checking us out Liz & for your comments!
Wow that is such a great find!!! I wish I’d find something that special when cleaning out my garage 🙂
Thank YOU for brightening neighborhoods too Angela! Your shows are fantastic…your blog is one of the best out there for parents…thanks for sharing your light with us!
You never know till you start digging in (parallel to life unintended). Much thanks for the kind word Kia!
I can’t explain in words how jealous I am of your experience. Amazing!
