Six seasons and a movie

No matter the number of neighbors complaints, scuffed floors or petitions signed I much like EVERYONE else at the age of 9 wanted to be Shirley Temple.  No I didn't understand that you cannot really be another person.  I felt like if I tapped hard enough my hair would spiral up and become wonderful head of bouncing curls.  I would walk around practicing my "Oh, my goodness" as best I could as I buffalo shuffled through the house.  

Sadly after 6 months of tapping my feet hard enough to skim the finish off the floor I discovered that I could never actually become Shirley Temple... Heart breaking I know.  Despite my heart break I did manage to get preform a lovely yet strangely provocative dance (considering that I was 9) to "Great balls of fire" (by Jerry Lee Lewis). Hey I guess by the end of it I did get to say "Goodness" and I am sure my mother said "Oh my" when I tried to do a shimmy (I lacked the necessary body parts to really make it work).

"Why do you bring this up?" you ask... no good reason other than the "Shinny" in today's list is my lovely and expensive recital costume (part of it any way... there were also feathers involved... don't ask me I didn't know about fashion at that age).

Not one of my best photos but I couldn't help plugging one of my favorite TV shows that is sadly on hiatus but if I have anything to say about it will come back for "six seasons and a movie, six seasons and a movie, six seasons and a movie"

    1. It was on a whim, we were helping Chris' parents move into their new home and I looked over and saw it and it was a little too perfect (for the I heart faces challenge this week) not to take a shot
