Dewey Squirrel likes Christmas songs. Particularly silly ones. So in the spirit of holiday fun, and in tribute to the Squirrel grandparents' well-remembered record collection (stored in a hassock like the one above), we will kick off Dewey's playlist with this daddy-o classic by Jim Backus and Daws Butler.
And stay tuned for more...that record chest was a big one. Vintage hassock photo found on Etsy.
"He realizes that the enemy of poetry is not social evil but slipshod language, the weasel words that betray the free mind: he realizes that to create requires an objective serenity beyond all intruding moral worries about atomic bombs and race prejudice." -–Northrop Frye,The Bush Garden, 1952

"Children are not, for the most part, suffering from a psychological condition. They're suffering from childhood." ~~ Sir Ken Robinson
"You have got to feel the pinch of hunger in the midst of scarcity and experience what hunger and scarcity are, when you do not know where to turn, to yourself, or to anyone else but only to God, that the work may be God's alone and of none other. You must not only think and speak of lowliness, but come into it, sink into it, utterly helpless, that God alone may save you. Or at any rate, should it not happen, you should at least desire it and not shrink. For this reason we are Christians and have the Gospel, that we may fall into distress and lowliness and that God thereby may have his work in us." --Martin Luther
