Dance Your Cares Away...

... worries for another day. So here it is, the last day of our yearly epic blogging adventure. I hope everyone had fun - thanks to all my family members for playing along with me. It's always neat to see what we come up with to fill the space for 30 days in a row. As Santini said recently, we are not all lucky enough to have a kitten as an endless source of inspiration/blog material.

I normally end this whole NaBloPoMo thing with a summary post of sorts. However, since Blogger was acting up yesterday, I am going to skip it and recreate yesterday's intended post instead.

In my Muppet post a few days ago, I apparently got a key detail wrong about the reason we have Fraggle Rock on tape in the first place. I'll let him explain, for those of you that don't obsessively read my comments:
Fraggle Rock was on in the morning while you and your mother were still in bed. I had to get up earlier than either of you in order to make it to work early enough so that I would be off in time to pick you up at Pat's within the time frame that was what Pat wanted.

Every day I got out of bed, turned on the TV to HBO, started the VCR and went about the business of preparing for work. I would come up from taking my shower usually as the Fraggle Rock episode was wrapping up.

Dance your cares away,
Worries for another day,
Let the music play,
Down at Fraggle Rock.
Down at Fraggle Rock.
So I guess my dad is more awesome than I thought. And it also turns out that my (and my mom's) sleeping in habits began at an early age. Good to know. I decided it would be appropriate to post a video of the Fraggle Rock intro to follow up. Turns out, YouTube had more than I bargained for. Here, in its' entirety, is the very first episode of Fraggle Rock:

I don't expect you to watch the whole thing, but you should maybe at least listen to the theme song. It's a classic.

That brings to an end this years' NaBloPoMo. I think it has re-energized my enthusiasm for blogging like I thought it would - expect slightly more frequent posts from now on, although nothing like daily posts. After all, I'm sure you'll all want to know how Calvin is doing. Here he is, one more time for November:

Taken during a brief pause in his nightly crazy cat performance. Still cute. :-)

Uncle Traveling Matt sets out to explore outer space.

Gobo, Mokie, Wembley, Boober, Red. Madame Trash Heap, Doozers, and a cameo by Junior Gorg.

It's a classic.

You seem to have had some fun with this. As did we all. And I feel like I got to know Calvin in the process. All good stuff.

I'll have to watch the whole episode sometime soon. Great job on NaBloPoMo posts! Another successful year by all 3 of the regulars. I enjoyed it.
