k is for kermit

Time's fun when you are having flies.
Kermit the Frog (b. 1955) mega star of stage and screen, ace reporter

longtime readers of the mouse, along with my kith and kin, know I have a special konnection to kermit the frog. probably because we have much in kommon - we were born in the south - in the same year, we love hearing people's stories, our names start with that kool letter K and we are both a bit kooky!

kermit and kylie singing especially for you


photos: top - kermie & kim at the 2008 peace show - susan found this kermit at a yard sale, brought him to the peace show so he kould go home with me. kermit believes strongly that war is not the answer and that killing is wrong! bottom - kermit mug, another kermit find from unique thrift.

My kids are of the age that Kermit was big for us. It seems we had the Muppet Movie soundtrack and played it over and over.

Yay, Kermit! What a wonderful fellow - I just don't know how he ever coped with Miss Piggy!

My mom actually went to the same high school as Jim Henson. She remembers Kermit from when he used to do commercials in the DC area for Edwards Coffee. (I think that's the name...)

petite souris:

1 - I am officially mandated by vicomtesse de Grenouillac de Graulhet to extend a formal invitation to Monsieur Kermit. The Vicomtesse wishes Monsieur Kermit to be the Mascot at the Tadpole Festival next Spring in the Frog Capital of Southwestern France. La vicomtesse assures Monsieur Kermit no frogs are ever harmed in the festivities and all pork products have been banned since the unfortunate incident with Mademoiselle Piggy.

2.(just noticed the snow owl on that post back in February - gorgeous one, too.)

3. I kid you not the word verification wants me to type guppjjys. well no guppies are harmed either, that goes without saying.

bisous (but the vicomtesse prefers le baise-main)

I like Kermit's buttons!

People who connect with Kermit are usually Good People, I've found!

Once saw an exhibit featuring a bunch of the puppets - including The Original Kermit. It was awesome.

I miss Jim Henson.

Henson left us quite a lot of smiles. (Kermit being just one reason to)

Kermit was always my favorite Muppet. The Kermit costume was my all-time best Halloween creation!
