Nostalgia and Innocence

lawrence welk

I’m feeling nostalgic today, missing the innocence of years past.  I had an awesome dream the other night where I was recruited to sing at the “Lawrence Welk Reunion Show”.  Now some of you are saying, “Who’s Lawrence Welk?”  I grew up watching this show with my parents, sitting on the floor of my family room, listening to Guy & Ralna, the accordion guy Myron, the Champagne Lady Norma Zimmer.  Now, this is a major nerd alert warning, but we actually got to see the cast perform live when I was a child, and they autographed a picture for me afterwards.  I remember everyone smiling and so gracious and patient.  It was quite exciting.  Even now, if I think of the closing song, “Good night, sleep tight, and pleasant dreams to you…” I can get quite choked up.  🙂
