I've actually come back in to edit this a little bit because Mr. T saw this picture and told me that when he wore this costume that his mom, Orlando Grandma, made, he WAS Superman. For him it was the coolest costume around, didn't even notice it was homemade. He was actually concerned that his "secret identity" might be revealed. Isn't it great the imagination kids have and how they believe. We lose that ability as we all grow older. Let's get that back - the ability to believe that anything is possible...
And how funny that about 45 years after this picture was taken of him in his Superman costume, that he would be going to yet another Superman movie with these two tomorrow:
"The Great Zacharini" and his little sis The Maven, aka "Cool Clown".
Yep, we like our costumes in this family...
And we have our very own Superman right here, in Mr. T. He always saves the day, always does the right thing, may not be faster than a speeding bullet, but he's good at battling the LA traffic. That certainly qualifies him as a Superman!
And Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, and the ones who are no longer with us.
