Just Roll With It, Pumpkin

In this week's early literacy video blog (vlog), Crafty Gal was sans Sammy the Toucan or any puppet replacement.  But her Pumpkin Friend dropped by to visit.  Well, more like rolled by.

Guest Star: Pumpkin Friend

Happily, Pumpkin won't be a permanent replacement for Sammy.  We're planning on further puppet interviews.  Maybe Cap'n Arrrrrgyle will make a comeback!  Not if we're lucky.

That ghost you made looked fairly scary to moi, Crafty Gal.  So did the pumpkin in that book.  Great Halloween reading for youngsters, I'd venture.  Kid people love to be scared!

Frankly, I couldn't understand a word Pumpkin said.  Sounded like a slobberdog toy squeaking to moi.

A little winged dinner told this feline roving reporter that next in the puppet interview line was a cow.  Go bovine, moo or less.  (What a terrible pun!)

If you'd like less roll in your pumpkins, we have a version of the video for that.

P.S.  Speaking of rolling, Steve Winwood released "Roll With It" as a smash single and an album (1988).  Could be Pumpkin Friend's theme song.  Just saying.


P.P.S.  "Roll With the Flow" is both a slogan and a philosophy, which is precisely what Michael Nesmith intended when he wrote this California-lifestyle tune.  The song finished side two of his solo LP entitled And the Hits Just Keep on Comin' (1972).  Papa Nez was being ironic with the album title.  He had some solo single and album hits, but nothing compared to the glory days with the Monkees.  He did, however, invent MTV, and his mother invented Liquid Paper.  True story.  You can look it up.


P.P.P.S.  The Smashing Pumpkins had some big hits, like "1979," from the album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1996), which is reminiscent of some of Michael Nesmith's solo album titles [e.g., Infinite Rider on the Big Dogma (1979)].  Hey, Infinite Rider was released in 1979! Coincidence?  Could be a conspiracy!  Or not.
