Bop Bop

Buddy Holly

Weeble’s favorite song, in case he never told you, was probably one of a zillion children’s songs that he used to sing with Mommy: some conventional, such as “Jesus Loves Me,” and some Eckhardt originals, such as “I’m as Hungry as a Weeble.” His favorite commercially recorded song by far, though, was “Not Fade Away,” as recorded by Buddy Holly. Weeble always wagged his little feet to that song as he sat in his car seat, singing along to the background “bop bops.”

Buddy Holly would have been 75 today. While there’s certainly no “Rock ‘N’ Roll Heaven (you know they’ve got a Hell of a band,) there is a chance that another young boy who died WAY too early, this one from a church-going Baptist family from Lubbock, TX, was saved. If so, perhaps Buddy and Weeble have shared a few bop bops together in the Real World.

Happy birthday, Charles Hardin Holley. Thank you for the memories that Weeble and I share even across the gulf that divides us for a short time.

Weeb & Go Vehicle Set

LeapFrog 10197 Fridge Wash & Go Magnetic Vehicle Set

One of the weebliest memories that just came to mind was the way that little guy would dance in front of the refrigerator after pressing the button on the front of the LeapFrog Fridge Wash & Go Magnetic Vehicle Set (item number 10197). If you have a little guy of your own, look into this cute toy! If you get one or have one, think of Weeb when you hear it. I sure do!

A big “thank you” to Katie, who is now dancing to the same tunes and in the same spot!
