day of mourning
Everybody has to go some time, but, no, tell me it isn't so!
Before "Sesame Street," before Mister Rogers and way, way, way before The Wiggles, there was a gentle man named Captain Kangaroo.
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

My childhood icons are dropping like flies, or already gone. I remember that after my father bought our first TV, my sister and me sitting and watching the Captain. On a small semi-round b&w screened TV that only picked up 1 or maybe 2 channels. (Just dated myself...huh)

I grew up watching the guy, I found out yesterday he lived less than 5 miles away from me.
Loved the ping pong balls.

Captain was cool, sure I barely remember him but he was cool, totally forgot about the ping pong balls, but now that image of a moose puppet (I think it was a moose?) getting pegged with balls is in my mind. lol.
