Love Token 76 - "What would you do if I sang out of tune...

...Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
"With A Little Help From My Friends"- Joe Cocker

The Wonder Years
On air from 1988-1993 and what a great show.

It is strange - this show always sits in the back of my mind...maybe because it was prime time during my childhood (7-12) and I grew up with the characters.

Whether it is the theme song dancing through my mind - or life images that remind me of the show, it always comes back to me.

I was going through my google reader and came across this photo and I am sure we all remember the pining love Kevin had for Winnie Cooper and hoping that our secret crushes were feeling like Kevin but just couldnt express it.
Oh Elementary School Yard Love

Really...who didn't love Winnie Cooper and Kevin Arnold?!

The Wonder Years supported the romantics, the concept of love, the trials and tribulations of young love *sigh* it was....


Now of course the real back drop was set in th 60's during the REAL trials and tribulations of turbulant social times and showcasing raising a family in that era.... But it was cleverly contrasted with the search for love.

War, Peace, Love - always a constant theme in everything....
My new street that I live on has houses clearly from that era - that every time I drive down the streets in my area I feel like I have time warped back 50 years and am IN "The Wonder Years" - to be honest - it rocks!

The Wonder Years brings warm fuzzies to me - which in turn led to it being my love token for today.
I will definitely need to invest in purchasing this series and re-watch it again -17 years later
So with that thought in my mind (and as strange as it may seem to some) when I go home today, I will sing the sweet tune of Joe Cocker and hope that all the Kevin Arnold's and Winnie Cooper's of the world find each other and grab hold of that LOVE...I sure know I found mine...

Tight Squeezes.
