Easter Blessings to all!

I made cupcakes tonight and will frost them in the morning. We will be with family. Dinner and good company is how I love to spend this day. Looks like we will have a sunny day and about 60 something. Not bad.
I want to take this time to thank all of you who come to visit me in Blog~land. I look forward to reading and seeing all that you do. I have had so many projects lately that I haven't done much of anything else. My days are not long enough for all that I want to do.
Happy everyday...... While I am thinking about it, the song you are listening to was very special when I was in 7th grade. The school I went to had a real Jute Box in the Cafeteria. One morning while walking to class I went through the Cafeteria to get to my next class and this song was playing
I looked to see who had put their nickle in and no one was around. It was like it was playing just for me. One of those moments! Frankie Avalon!!!!! It is on my music list if it is not playing right now.

Teddy Bear Tea

Still have more to do, but I am getting there. I am cutting out little Bears, and giving them a old fashioned name. I made them out of pink satin, I will show them when they are done. I just know that I will be done soon.

Do you remember the Micky Mouse Club & American Bandstand?

I wonder how many kids learned to dance from watching and dancing to American Bandstand? I didn't start collecting records until I was 14, that was when I could babysit. My Dad was a Elvis fan, so my first album was GI Blues. Dad bought it for me, but it was really for him. My Dad was only 32 when I was 14. It was a big year at our house. My Mother had my baby brother. Sharon my sister was 7 years old. My Mother loved Bandstand too. I wanted to dance on the show! At that time my cousin Gloria and my friend Judy Sportsman were my dance partners. At school dances I was a little shy, but after a couple of songs I could have danced all night. My husband went to the same school I did. I thought he was really good looking with his blue eyes and very light blond flat top. He would walk behind me going home from school sometimes and flirt with me. He liked my long red hair. I knew he was always with a new girl and I thought that was terrible. He was a grade ahead of me, so he and his friends ruled the school.
It could be fun to Doddle a Pee Chee folder....I will ! Just take this photo and see what you come up with. Just for fun.

After school during the week I would watch first Micky Mouse Club. And then American Bandstand. It was the best TV to me. Everyone I knew loved Annette. Two days a week 7 of us would meet before school...6th grade and get hot biscuits in Kathy garage. She had the record player in the garage and she would turn it up full blast and we would do the dance on Micky Mouse club. Why did we do this? Just because it was very cool to be like them. No, we never danced for anyone but ourselves. We were all really good friends and it was our little club. I loved 6th grade, Mr. Marr was a very handsome teacher, we all had a crush on him. And we thought he liked the second grade teacher who was very pretty. I think back to this time with fond memories, everything was peaceful and the days were long. Southern California was warm and sunny. At least it seemed that way to me. In looking back I find this to be my truth...if you had a pee-chee folder, gum, friends, and a cute boy to look at, life was good. Oh ya, a cool Dad that had a great car! Baby blue Cadillac...smell that leather!
