But really? Purple? I like purple, but it's not my favorite color. I love wearing purple, but don't use it in my home decor. I like eggplant, does that count? Pretty sure this prompt calls for a bit of artistic license, so let's take advantage of the fact that it's Thursday and talk throwback.
Who remembers Barney, the big purple dinosaur? Is Barney still a thing, because back in 1993 he was all the rage. 'I love you, you love me...' Talk about an ear worm! If you were raising children in the early 90's you can finish that lyric in your sleep.
Yay for parents who sang along with Barney!
I know in my collection of photographs I have the cutest picture of Daughter2 unwrapping a stuffed Barney doll on her third birthday. The complete and utter joy on her face cannot be explained in words, and I'd so love to post the photo here, but cannot for the life of me find it in my online photo 'system'. ahem.
The actual photo lies tucked away in a box, currently resting in the deepest nether-regions of our moving container parked inside a warehouse.
In New Jersey.
R is for re-organize those online photos Mom!
Turns out Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun is still shining down on me though, because in my search for Barney I found something even better. Pure purple awesomeness in the form of these throwbacks, circa 2009.
Bam! Nailed it!
