Just thought you would like some useless info.
Wow!! How cool. I was so sad when Jim Henson died. My son LOVED Sesame Street when he was young. Okay, me too. ;)

Kermit had way too much to drink (bug juice) long before midnight, his ugly web feet slipped on some ice and he slid under a moving 18 wheeler and was drug for 7.9 miles before he was knocked loose into a gutter where I left him until he woke up....then I sent him to bed for being bad. He never saw the new year come in! Some people just never learn that they can't handle much bug juice.:hunf:

My date was with our 6 1/2 month DGD. It was her first spend the night party. At bed time she screamed at full volume for 30 minutes. The cats ran and hid the dogs howled. DH asked what he could do and I told him I couldn't hear him. Then she quit and slept from 10 pm to 7 am. Would I do it again? In a heart beat. Next year, prayfully, we will have two little ones.

Love it! Not to sidetrack the thread, but surely Jackie recognized herself in Miss Piggy if others did, and probably people pointed it out to her. So what I really want to know is, what did she think of Miss Piggy being modeled after her?
Jackie knew Miss Piggy was her but the truth be told Jackie was more animated then Miss Piggy. I think Jackie thought it was the funniest thing that Jim Henson had made her (meaning Jackie) into a puppet.
