It's National Two Different Colored Shoes Day!    Today you’re supposed to recognize and celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of humanity.

Yeah, that’s fine but I like to call it....PUNKY BREWSTER Day.   Remember the TV series starring Soleil Moon Frye.   Yes kids, that was her name, I think her parents were second generation Hippies.  Here's the opening theme song.

The show ran on NBC from 1984 to 1986 and again in first-run syndication from 1987 to 1988. They made her a cartoon too. Punky was a homeless kid, abandoned by her parents, she came to live with an old man named Henry, she had a best friend named Cherie, and a dog named Brandon.  Punky wore some very colorful outfits with mix-matched shoes and socks and everything.  There was even a Punky Doll. They still sell them on Ebay. Check out the different colored shoes!


It was supposed to be a haphazard fashion statement,  but now that I look back at her, Punky was a well put together kid.  So let your Punky out today and wear some colorful funk!
