down memory lane…

I saw this photo today on a news website that I read a few times a day — this photo immediately replayed a short snippet of the episode that this wee puppy was introduced.

For those that don’t know that guy in the photo — that’s Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) and the puppy he is gleefully holding is the puppy his grandfather bought him.  A puppy and a gift that was a big deal in the super awesome showThe Wonder Years.  A show that I watched religiously growing up and that to my surprise has held up pretty well.

It’s funny how just this snapshot brought back a number of images of that show that so helped create the person I am today.  I remember cooing out loud when Kevin’s grandfather pulled that puppy out from behind his back — I remember pestering my mother immediately after that episode that I thought we should get a puppy — and of course, anytime I think of that show my inner jukebox plays Joe Cocker’s “Have a Little Faith in Me”  and that iconic moment of Kevin kissing Winnie for the first time comes flooding back.
