Happy Birthday, Jim Henson

 It is the birthday of Jim Henson (September 24, 1936 – May 16, 1990), creator of the Muppets.

He was raised in the small delta town of  Leland, Mississippi, where we found this museum with many of his creations.

My sons loved Sesame Street when they were small. They can still sing all the songs they learned from Kermit, Bert, Ernie and the others. The Muppets are now entertaining a new generation of children, and they are still as loved as they were forty years ago.
