If you're a certain age you'll remember The Art Linkletter Show and the kids who were interviewed on there. His books Kids Say The Darnedest Things.
I was eleven when my school was invited to be on the show and I was chosen to be one of the kids.
Talk about a wow moment! We kids rode in a limo, were treated to a fancy lunch, and asked lots of questions. After all, they did want us kids to come up with funny quips. Mr. Linkletter came in and talked to us, asked questions, and worked the ones he liked into our spot on the show.
Even now, I still remember a lot from that day and how ironic that we received transitor radios, a certificate for tennis shoes, and a globe. Why ironic? I wanted a portable radio and I thought I'd have to wait for Christmas.
Art Linkletter was very nice to we kids and it was the kind of day any kid should have for a fun memory. I know I'm glad I have that day.
