From the archives: can you remember seven years ago?

First posted January 2006

Overheard in the Treehouse:

1. A nameless Squirreling singing this: "Lift me up, and let me stand, by faith on heav'n's potato land..."

2. Squirrelings squabbling about which track to listen to next on the Beethoven's Wig CD.  One of them wants the Surprise Symphony again because she likes the big BANG. The other wants the Can-Can song. Again. (Mommy, is our friend who went to France dancing the can-can now?) And they're all singing the Kings and Queens of England song, even Crayons, who enjoys correcting the last line. (It's two Georges, not three!)

3. Ponytails: "Apprentice, what is a cannibal?" Crayons: "A cannibal, you know a cannibal. Like Tchaikovsky's Cannibal." (Look at Track 11 of Beethoven's Wig for the explanation of this.)
