Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts: Henry Winkler is Cool Edition

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they’ve encountered during the week, etc.).

    1. 20171031_180453Shortcake was the cutest Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween.
    2. Is it sad that entering the fourth quarter of the UT vs Kentucky game last weekend, my thought was, “What new way will they find to disappoint me this week?”  And then, they went and found a new way to just exactly that.
    3. Just saw the news that The Orville has been renewed.  I’m happy for the show and reminded that I’ve got four (soon to be five) episodes sitting on the DVR, waiting for me to get caught up.
    4. Just when you think Henry Winkler can’t get any cooler, I read this interview where he says, “When I go into a school, the first thing I do — whether there are 100 or 500 children — is ask, ‘Anybody here know what they’re great at?’ Every hand goes up. Every child knows what they’re great at. Whether they are learning-challenged or not. Our job as adults is to make sure they meet their destiny, every single one of them.”  I love it and I hope I can do that for Shortcake as she grows up.
    5. On a related note, Henry Winkler has a series of books for kids that has spun-off into its own TV series. How did I miss this?!? I hope we have the Universal Kids channel on our cable package so I can watch this with Shortcake.
    6. The Fonz had many cool moments on Happy Days. But one of my favorites is this one from season four’s “They Shoot Fonzies Don’t They?” After agreeing to be Joanie’s partner for the big dance marathon at Arnold’s, his motorcycle breaks down on the way back from Chicago.  Exhausted from pushing his motorcycle to the Cunningham’s, Fonzie won’t let anyone tell Joanie he’s exhausted.  At the dance contest, Joanie’s nemesis (who kept her off the cheerleading team) bets that she and her partner will beat Joanie and Fonzie. If Joanie wins, she’s a cheerleader.  If the other team wins, Fonzie gets a crewcut. It all leads to this moment…

  1. What a darling little girl! My daughter dressed up as a nurse and a cow for Halloween – we had two fall activities to attend!

  2. That costume is too adorable! I miss those days when my kids were smaller, we had so much fun on Halloween. Henry Winkler is awesome and I totally agree, the earlier you instill that in your child, the better! I loved Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley when I was a kid.

  3. I loved Happy Days…and The Fonz was definitely cool.

    I’ve never seen The Orville…must check it out! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
