The Wonderful World of Disney
As I'm munching on popcorn and watching a movie with my sweetie in front of the crackling fire, my mind wanders back in time. I'm suddenly nine years old, dressed in my handmade flannel red and white nightgown, warm and clean from my bath. Surrounded by my sisters and brother, I'm lying on the brown shag carpet, a bowl of popcorn and a plastic tupperware cup of cherry Kool-Aid in front of me. All eyes are glued to the RCA television set as Tinkerbell flits through the night sky. With a flick of her wand, she lights up the magic castle and The Wonderful World of Disney begins, taking us on grand adventures through far away lands and times. This was a Sunday night ritual that we never missed. A memory that I treasure.
A few of my favorite Sunday night Disney movies were "The Child of Glass", "Charlie the Lonesome Cougar" and "Old Yeller". What were your favorites?
