An evening pause: As I have said before, it is very important to be silly once in awhile.

Hat tip Edward Thelen.

    “important to be silly once in awhile.”

    The muppets are NOT silly!

    Crystal Gayle was one of my favorite female performers, (as well as just about every other female performer.) I think it may have had something to do with her incredibly long hair…

    For a while, The muppet show was the high water mark of every actor or singer’s career. I was heartbroken when Jim Henson died.He had a type of genius rarely seen.

    I grew up with the muppets. Jim Henson was indeed a genius. Entertainment for the sake of entertainment, not pushing an agenda (although that frog/pig thing was kinda weird).
