Happy Sweater Day!!!

Today marks the 80th birthday of Mr. Rogers and, to commemorate his contribution to children's programming, everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite sweater (try to avoid the overly ornate ones, a la Bill Cosby).

Though his show didn't exactly have us hanging from the chandeliers with excitement, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood was simply great television. Soft spoken and kind, Mr. Rogers was a man of great character and his great legacy reflects that. So up the stairs I go, in search of my favorite sweater and maybe even a pair of keds.
