Now that I'm more in the mood to blog I got to thinking about something that would make a good story and may be of some interest. As I pondered over what to write some of my earlier blogs like back when I started blogging would be a nice breath of fresh air. You know not only am I cute and cuddley now but back in my younger days I was a heart throb. I was so cute it's a wonder I ever grew up liking myself. Sounds a little thick I know but the truth is the truth. I dug back into my archives and came up with this blog entry and a picture of myself when I was only around 4 as near as I can remember. Whew was that ever a long time ago. It's enough to make one feel old. Anyway this is my story about me at an earlier time and the only name I could come with for myself was "Hollywood".
Sometimes I think back to the old movies of the day when I was just a little squirt coming along. I see kids who were stars back then and I remember how wholesome and cute they were. It's then that it hits me...Hollywood Missed It's Chance. That's right they missed their chance for a star that surely would have filled the box offices to their fullest. A young lad who was nothing short of suave and debonair and for sure a heart throb. A star to out shine any star of that time...sigh. I guess they just hadn't heard of me. Instead I was destined as a child to live a life of freedom from the hustle and bustle of the big city and all it's bright lights. I was to live a life of a farm boy running freely with the wind through the woods with my faithful dog Socrates at my side. Learning life's valuable lessons on how to survive, how to make things grow, and yes I even talked to the animals on the farm. Weren't many people around those parts then so I had to make do with what I had. I did alright, I think the animals understood me and I them. We got along good so what more is there. I lived a life full of love from my grandparents and grew from a cute and lovable little tike into a big cute and huggable ol Teddy Bear. You know I still think that I could have made an impression under the bright lights. It could have been move over Shirley Temple and Alfalfa. For all I know I could have grown up sitting in the White House just as Ronald Reagan did. But you know I wouldn't have traded my life as a young lad for anything in the world. What most now would consider dull was exciting to me. What most now wish they could learn I knew. Yes if I could start all over, I would start back on the farm and just be the unknown Hollywood.
