28 April 2021

From National Superhero Day:

Each year on April 28th, National Superhero Day honors superheroes, both real and fictional.

Batman, Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk, and Spiderman are just some of the superheroes whose names we recognize. Even though they are fictional, these superheroes provide role models for our children. They serve and protect while fighting evil.

George Reeves' Superman was a force in my life for decades.

When Superman was a new TV show, we didn't have a television set, but my friend Gayle did.  I loved the show and tried to be at her house whenever the show was on so I could watch it.

Ned got inspired by the same TV programs, many years later, in reruns.  He "became" Superman.

Superheroes became very big in the family. 

One Halloween each of the boys dressed as a superhero.  Ned, of course, was Superman.  I don't remember what Paul  was, but Tom, who was the toddler at the time, was "Diaper man."

We just have accepted Superman as a part of our family. 


And one year I made a Superman quilt for Ned for Christmas.  He still has it.  It was probably the most creative thing I ever made.

I've probably made more than one Superman cake over the years.

It's like Superman is just a member of our family that we don't see very often, but we always know he's there.
