It seems I had an even more tragic childhood than I imagined as I did not see even one episode of The Muppets. I had thought I was too old for them, but my dear husband tells me I’m not! When he suggested on the phone today that he was Beaker, I was completely clueless, hence the link to the lesson about The Muppets. I had been struggling today with a ‘Tuesday humour’ blog, so Beaker and Dr Honeydew might just have to be it.
When I turned 40, I felt my body was ‘oh so slowly’ catching up to the age inside my head, and then when I turned 50, I was almost there. I grew up in a rural community, and spent a lot of time with my grandparents and a great aunt, which influenced me greatly. My taste in music, television, movies and clothing was closer to someone 20-40 years older than me, until the last few years, when one girlfriend rightly declared, I am getting younger!

Will it be worth my while giving up a weekend to watch some of the episodes??? I’m not a doctor, but my dear husband says in our relationship, he is just like Beaker and I am like Dr Honeydew! Obviously I’m going to have to watch at least one episode to see what we’re like…
After Richard Taylor adding so much about them I decided I’d better add this;
