Look what was rolling out of town early Sunday morning. Of course, I really can't say I grew up with the gang, but in lots of ways I spent a second childhood with them. Most afternoons J- and I piled on the brown couch in the den and were entertained by Bert and Ernie, Big Bird, Oscar, and the rest of the Muppets. My favorites had to be The Count and Elmo. I loved to countdown with that lovable 'Dracula wanna- be', and was there ever a character anymore innocent then orange Elmo? There was a stretch in my life where, if there was a Disney or Sesame Street show at the Civic Center, we were there. I still get my melancholy days that make long for the these innocent times.
