|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with the materials needed to repair a wicket on the front yard fence. After using sand paper to make the wooden piece smooth, he takes a hammer and nails outside where he fixes the broken fence. Mister Rogers sings Fences as he works.
Joe Negri stops by with his guitar and plays for Mister Rogers. They talk about feeling proud of accomplishments like playing the guitar or fixing fences. After Mr. Negri teaches Mister Rogers a few basic guitar skills, they think about different kinds of fences that they have seen.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog has eaten all of the pies from Lady Elaine Fairchilde's restaurant. Handyman Negri finds that Lady Elaine has caught Bob Dog and put him in a cage tied to the outside of the restaurant. Although he cannot make pies, Bob Dog agrees to make toast for the restaurant and is released from the cage. Everyone is confident that the pie and toast restaurant will be ready by tomorrow.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers checks on his fence to find that the repaired piece is sturdy before going inside to make some toast. He talks about the importance of finding time alone when you need it.
