The Littlest Christmas Tree, by Red Skelton...

As a partner of Community MX, we're asked to occasionally write blogs about all sorts of things that might be of interest to us. Last year, I re-called a very special Christmas Album and story my brother and I used to listen to every year. Here is my original blog. The story was by Red Skelton and it was called "The Littlest Christmas Tree".

Since that post last year, I have received so many personal e-mails and responses to my blog from people telling me how they too had listened to that story on that same album and how they thought they'd never be able to find it ever again.

Needless to say, when I did my very thorough internet search last year for this Red Skelton story, I never thought I'd get the response that I have. Last year, I was just trying to find out if I could still purchase the story some where or if that old holiday album even existed any more. Apparently, the album has been re-recorded but the story has been left off. I found a lot of Red Skelton stuff - CDs and DVds but nothing that gave definitive proof whether this story was included on any of his collections. But I did find a web site that had a WAV file of the story. It was here:

If you go to my original blog, you can get the direct link from there. But what I thought I'd do this year is save it to my own web site in a .MOV file... just in case there have been some web visitors out there that have been unable to listen to the Albertarose WAV file.

Here is the .MOV version of the Littlest Christmas Tree, by Red Skelton:

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season this year!

Noel in the modern day...

I hope I don't get in trouble for this (in a "struck down by lightning kind of way")...
I was just thinking of humorous things that might have happened if Jesus was born in this day and age and some of the crazy things Joseph and Mary might've had to overcome.

This was one of them.

I won't mention the others since that probably WOULD get me struck down by lightning.


- Currently listening to Wierd Al's "Chrismas at Ground Zero"...

Please everyone, have a merry, merry Christmas. And, if you can, please help those who might need it. Like Marry and Joseph.

Happy Holidays.

Poor, poor, pitiful me...

Scott Johnson had a little contest where he asked people to draw a picture of him and send it to him. Guess I didn't make the deadline or he never got my e-mail (hence the title of this blog). I did this during my lunch hour based off of his photo here. Not really meant to be a caricature. Just a funny little cartoon of him.

The inspiration for his outfit (and the dialogue) was taken from the live television movie version of "The Year without Santa Claus" that aired on NBC this past Monday (December 11th).

Currently listening to various Christmas music...
