Tribute to Mister Fred Rogers (03/20/1928) - (02/27/2003) Thank you for being our televison neighbor for 31 seasons, 895 episodes!

“Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?  You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind. It’s good to be curious about many things.  You can think about things and make believe.  All you have to do is think and they’ll grow.” – Fred Rogers
