The first thing saw I this morning when I woke up was a blog on Mister Rogers from Mister Roger's Neighborhood. I admit, I did watch that show when I was a kid, but I didn't dare boast about it. I was what you call a closet Mister Rogers fan. Even as a kid, I thought it was too simplistic and beneath me. Yet, I always seemed to tune into it if I saw it was on. Something about the sweetness of Mr. Roger's kept my attention. At times, I admit, I thought something can't right about him, no one on television can be that honest and pure hearted. And typically, in our generation, an actor like Mister Roger's would have SOMETHING dark lurking in his closet besides his sweaters! (Remember Pee Wee Herman? lol) But nothing ever surfaced. That makes me feel good that there was and are still wholesome people in this world that truly just want to love and give to children.
So this BLOG I found on Houzz.com was titled, "Design Pop: 7 Home Lessons We Learned From Mister Rogers," caught my attention. I thought, "Really? Design ideas inspired by Mister Rogers, not how to be 'Neighborly' is what they came up with?" And yep, they did! It was a good read and a good reminder that we need to be kind no matter where we are. They even managed to stay on track with the topic. I won't spoil it for you, it's short; however, my favorite tip was, "Show Your Sweaters Some Respect", and I chuckled. Kudos to Mister Rogers!
OH! And apparently a movie about him starring Tom Hanks is coming out June 8th. I shall see it!
