Remember the Patty Duke show? Technically I am too young to remember it but I caught the re-runs on nick-at-nite. You children of the 80's know what I'm talking about!
Here are the lyrics to the theme song in case you want to sing along...
"THE PATTY DUKE SHOW THEME(Sid Ramin / Bob Wells)
Meet Cathy, who's lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty's only seen the sights
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights — What a crazy pair!
But they're cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.
Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control — What a wild duet!
Still, they're cousins, Identical cousins and you'll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike — You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind."
We were "Best Cousins"...you know that is even more than a BFF. My BC and I are only weeks apart in age. We have always been close although never in close proximity to each other. We were blessed to have a family that got together often and our bond was strong from the time we were little girls. We certainly fancied ourselves "identical cousins".
My BC had her second blessing baby on April 1st. I just got to meet little X about a week ago. Isn't he a doll baby? I only got to be with them for about an hour and a half. I made sure to snuggle him close and whisper how much I love him. I look forward to times when our children will be together. Love you guys!
