<br><br><br><span style="color:#008000;">The above apply to my childhood. (I was born in '73)<br><br>

I wore bellbottoms a lot in high school, but never wore patches on them.<br><br><br><br>
Captain Kangaroo was awesome. I heard a rumor that he was Frank Zappa's father. Not sure if that's true or not.</span>

Come On Down to the Red Door in Fremont on February 10, 2007, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. J.P. Patches (Chris Wedes) and Gertrude (Bob Newman) will both be in attendance, as will Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and other celebrity Patches Pals. At 10:30 a.m., Mayor Nickels (a Patches Pal since 1961) will be the keynote speaker.</div>

<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/pibo.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":pibo:"> Yay! I live in Seattle, close to Fremont, so we took my kids to this. We all got tee-shirts and pins and bought a "paver" for the fund-raiser.<br><br>
<<< TOTAL J.P. Patches geek, what can I say.
