Happy Birthday Sesame Street!

Wow! Forty years old! I remember it like it was yesterday! I was babysitting for a little girl in the neighborhood and we watched it together. Even then as a 13 year old I enjoyed it, and I sure loved it with my kids. What's not to love about it?! What a great collection of characters, a great method of teaching and introducing cultures and topics otherwise thought to not be appropriate. I just had the news on and they did a story about it and it brought such momentary joy to me.
Congratulations Sesame Street!

I've felt like I was on another planet since Thursday. I came down to eat my breakfast Friday and check my emails before work only to find I did not have a connection. My router was dead and it was not until today that I recieved my new one. I went to the public library once over the weekend to check my emails but I totally felt like a fish out of water not being connected. No emails, no Etsy, no blogging, no shopping, no Goggle, no nothing! Boy do I feel good being connected again.
I have a lot to catching up to do.
Life is good - being connected again and enjoying warm memories of Sesame Street!

Hahaha! I totally understand! My computer has become one of the central devices of my life! I'm planning a quick day trip to Chicago on the train and forgot to ask if they have WiFi! Drat! I WILL find out though! A 7 hour trip without the computer sounds dreadful and I could really catch up on my visiting!

Welcome back to the world :)

My art is a directly influenced by Sesame Street. I had a set of SS books growing up and I looked at them for years...

I grew up with Sesame Street - but in German! And then I watched it all over again when my sister was little... I loved it!!

Glad you are connected again! It feels so weird when we lose our internet connection, doesn't it?

Hugs, Silke
