That Time of Year

Tree is up, presents are bought and doing OK.

Christmas humor from the 50's

Or memories of the 70's

And for our politicians of today


  1. LOL "You nauseate me, Mr Grinch!"

  2. Love Miss Piggy. well, the rest of them are ok too. They made the song fun.

  3. Dear Arleen,
    What a treat on this overcast and cold day to go with you into these three decades and see the "ghosts" of Christmas past.

    In Eddie Lawrence's song he called the children "moppets." I suddenly realized what the word "muppets" must have come from! Thanks for this moment of clarity.

    The muppet rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" had me laughing out loud. Thanks for that too.

    And finally, I'd never heard the Grinch song. What an eye-opener. And yes, it does say a lot about today's politicians! So thank you for putting Washington into perspective for me!


  4. I remember and LOVE all of them. lol

  5. I SHOULD be in the kitchen starting dinner, but I wanted to see what you had on your blog about politics today. Perfect choice! LOTS of 'em are grinches!

  6. Too All:
    My mother loved The Old Philospher and I can still hear her laughing in the kitchen when the radio played one of his records

    My favorite Actress is Miss Piggy

    There always used to be at least one good guy you could vote for, how times have changed. In the end of the story about the Grinch, he found the errors of his ways and became a nice Grinch; I don't see that happening any time soon in Washington.

  7. I am commenting from your comment on my post today - you are soooo funny!

    An elephant?


  8. Awesome memories! The modern Christmas programming cannot trump 'Grinch' or 'Muppets', or any of the originals.
