I feel your flour sack towel pain!  I like to add a fabric binding to my towels using a bias tape maker.

These are totally fantastic!

I love that idea!

I also love that everybody remembers this as fondly as I do. 

I remember vividly in 12th grade American Government class having to memorize the preamble to the Constitution so we could write it out on a test.  During the test I looked around the room and everyone was mouthing the Preamble song.

And to this day, I say that things are rocking and a-rolling, splishing and a-splashing.

See, Mom and Dad-- we did get some good out of all of the Saturday morning cartoons we watched as kids.  Maybe next I'll do some Sid and Marty Krofft towels-- H.R. Puf'n'stuff, Liddsville, Sigmund the Sea Monster, ElectraWoman and DynaGirl and (my all time favorite) the Bugaloos!  That would totally be fun!

We got extra credit if we could recite or sing the preamble, and everyone ended up singing, or speaking it in the song's rhythm.  Cheesy My SO is French and I was explaining to him that anyone who grew up in the US from the 70's through the 80's would be able to sing the preamble. He just shook his head,  Grin

I can't resist.  These are a few of my faves.  My children are the right age, but don't think they are nearly as fantastic as I do:

I'm just a Bill

It's true!  It's true!

Actually, if you ever read any interviews with the guy who created SHR, it was because he realized that his son could remember lyrics to rock songs, but not his times tables. 

And the result?  Here I am, at almost age 43, and any time I decide to count by 3s, I still sing Three is a Magic number, I know the Preamble, and I know that an interjection is for excitement!  or emotion!  Hallelujah! 

Darn.  That's the end.

Haha. Another funny story is that my SO loves jazz, and Bob Dorough was popular in France as a jazz guy (who was kind of comical as well). I was all excited about 3 is the magic number and other songs he wrote for SHR. I had no idea he was also a "regular" jazz guy, and my SO had o idea about SHR.  Cheesy

In more on-topic comments, I like stitching on Target's organic cotton tea towels much better than their regular white ones.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "WOW!! -- What a Ride! -- Anonymous
