|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers finds a clipboard on his porch with a small piece of paper that says "read this note" but the rest of the paper is blank. Assuming that the note is written with invisible ink like he used a few days eariler, Mister Rogers desiphers the message to find that Mr. McFeely will be making a delivery very soon. Promptly, Mr. McFeely arrives with a film about how people make suitcases. After watching the film, Mister Rogers sings Many Ways to Say I Love You.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber explains to Lady Elaine that the balloon ring he gave to her does not mean that they are to get married. After the confusion has settled, Neighbor Aber invites everyone to Westwood for the opening of the new sandbox. Before everyone leaves, Queen Ida plays a song on her accordion and invites Lady Elaine to join her for a duet. Mayor Maggie arrives at the castle and announces an open invitation to the new sandbox as well as her plans to establish a museum of secrets which she would like Lady Elaine to oversee.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers hears an alarm coming from the suitcase Mr. McFeely delivered with the film. Opening the suitcase, Mister Rogers finds a note from Mr. McFeely instructing him to sing the Good Feeling song, change out of his sweater, and go out the front door. Following the instructions, Mister Rogers is surprised to find that many of his neighbors are waiting outside to celebrate his birthday. The group sings a Happy Birthday song to Mister Rogers before he blows out the candle and wishes that everyone knows how special they are to him. His gift includes a small slide viewer which displays photos of many of his friends. Together, everyone closes by singing It's Such a Good Feeling.
