Skills Aide again' today,

With a different school and kids though. At one point the teacher read the kids a story about a caterpillar eating it's way through a pile of food, and then turning into a beautiful butterfly. Then they watched a little video of the same story displayed for them on a computer. Sitting there, listening to the story, I flashed back to England, about 1968, when I used to sit at home on rainy days (they have a shit load of those in Britain) and watch a cool TV show for kids called Jackanory. British TV, stage and movie stars would read kids stories. It was awesome. Here's a sample.

Anyway, that was a cool show. I used to love British TV back then. Doctor Who, The Prisoner, The Avengers, etc. But just about everything else on British TV back then that interesting to me was really an American show. Stuff like High Chaparral, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Lost In Space, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, etc. Man, those were cool shows. No doubt about it.

Yep, he's maturing just like a fine-wine now, boys.

That's what happens when you have too-much time to THINK on your hands---you get OLD, and SOFT!

Hang-in there, bud! We won't let you grow-up anytime soon, if we can help it.....!☺
