Flashback Friday

Today I am participating in Flashback Friday. Check out Tara's blog to see the other partipants. I am showing a picture and a video. The two are not related.
This is a picture of me and my Dad. I was so happy I found some old photos of my Dad. I just happened to find them while I was looking for a shoebox to decorate for my Daughter's Valentine mailbox.

I was maybe 4 years old. You can see those cloth hair curlers. My Mom was always stylin' our hair like Shirley Temple when we had to go anywhere special.

If you look closer, you can see a black tooth on my Dad. When he was in the Marines, he had gotten into a fight with a fellow Marine and the guy smack him with the rifle on his mouth. Well the dentist just put a cap on his tooth. Years later, while he was bitting into an apple, the cap fell off and revealed the blacken tooth. It no longer bothered him, so he never fix it. Since I could remember, that was a part of him, so it never bothered me:)

I miss him.

Now for the video, I have been thinking a lot lately when my first daughter was little how we would sit together and watch Playhouse Disney. Rolie Polie Olie was one of our favorites, next to the Wiggles. Disney no longer shows Rolie Polie Olie. I miss that show. Not my daughter though. She tells me "That's a baby show". I wish they stop growing up:(

>P>Enjoy the video.

This is such a fun thing to participate in. I really like the story about your Dad. Wonder why my child will remember about me! Speaking of children's TV, I always have their theme songs running through my head. Which one will I long for...
