Come On Get Happy

As I was working on my latest Priority: Alzheimer's quilt I noticed that something about it was familiar.  Although not exactly the same pattern, it reminded me of the Partridge Family's bus!  If you are a child of the 60's like I am, you most likely spent every Friday night between 1970 and 1974 in front of the television watching The Partridge Family.  The brightly painted bus, the trouble that Danny got into each week, the music, and *sigh* David Cassidy!  All those wonderful memories came back to me as I finished this quilt.  Over 40 years have passed and I still remember that show and being "in love" with David Cassidy...I just hope that those memories will stay with me and not be taken away by Alzheimer's Disease.

You know that I know all about the Cassidys....my sister was in love with David...I was in love with Vinnie Bobberino...LOL.

It does look like their tour bus...how fun. I love it and I love what you are doing Susan....what a lovely gift. I pray we all have our memories for as long as we need them.

Hugs,
Kelly

Love it! And now after almost a decade of dealing with memory loss issues in family members I know I have to celebrate each and every one! Come On and Get Happy is a great one to remember. We all need to sing and dance and be happy!Oh yeah!
