That Old Rachel 6

When Rachel was about two, she found a little rubber Prickle character at the Gillenwater's house and fell in love with it. Well, the Gillenwater kids were nice enough to give it to her and it became a constant companion. I was able to find a Gumby and a Pokey, too, but it was Prickle who was her favorite. And then I discovered that the show was on tv occasionally and she was hooked.

One day she and I were watching the show, accompanied by our own Gumby, Pokey, and Prickle, and she turned to me and said, "We have a Gumby!"

"Yup, we do," I said.

A short pause, then...

"We have a Prickle! And we have a Pokey!"

"Yup," I said.

Another pause.

"But we don't have a Goo," she said. Then, turning toward me and lowering her voice to a conspiratorial tone, "But we have a Goo on the television."

Good thing, that.

I don't even remembered those other characters. Glad you had them on the tv.
