I was also a regular viewer of The Magic Cottage
11 June 2007 | by (East Rockaway, NY) – See all my reviews

I only recently (within the last 10 years!) discovered how Pat Miekle's named was spelled. I think I still remember that safety ditty manginess mentioned:

Johnny (or Jenny) was only jaywalking/ S(he) didn't mean harm to a soul/ But because (s)he was only jaywalking/ An auto went out of control./ Two thousand pounds of chrome and steel/ Flying through the air,/ That was the end of an automobile,/ And innocent kids that were there,/ etc., etc.

Thanks for bringing that back. It obviously really made an impression. I was also a great fan of Ray Forest's Children's Theater. (I spotted his obituary in the NY Times a few years ago and the past came reaching into the present.) Ah!, the good old days . . . .
