Looney Monday

 By Graylin Fox

As I sit here and try to think of what to write today my DVR holds one of my favorite cartoons of all time. Looney Tunes, specifically, the roadrunner and coyote segments. I don't remember what I liked in my cable line up that made the TiVo record the old school Looney Toons. I do know my Saturday mornings are better for it. 

Just like my childhood I can get up, get something to eat, and laugh. From Elmer, who says he s a vegetarian, hunting wabbits, to the abominable snowman chasing bugs and Dafffy, to Marvin the Martian. I'm grateful the Cartoon Network plays these every day so I can be transported back anytime I like. 

I have to figure that this was my first exposure to aliens. ;) I had the Marvin the Martian water bottle in college. Vodka killed the plastic taste perfectly! 

To celebrate going back to childhood I'm giving away a signed copy of COMING HOME to one commenter. Just add your two cents on childhood memories and you could win!

There was a woods out back of our house, with a stream running through it, and a big, flat-topped rock--the perfect size for two kids--right next to a clay deposit. My sister and I would sit out there for hours at a time "making things." When we came in from the woods, looking like animated clay statues, Mom would just hose us off. I took a pottery course as an elective in college because of all those good memories.

My brother and I used to watch the Saturday morning cartoons as well, when we weren't playing at(in) the creek down the road. LOL

I remember trying to wake up earlier than my three older siblings because I could never get to watch what I wanted once they were awake. Being the littlest of four stinks. LOL
Especially when your parents were only children and just don't get it.

I used to hunt in the backyard for Smurfs while pretending I was the cool girl archer from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon. :)

I love the road runner cartoons and of course Marvin is the best. I use Road Runner in my class room. I loved Saturday mornings for the cartoons.
