Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Hope It's a Jim-Dandy!



Hugh Brannum, better known to millions of baby boomers as "Mr. Green Jeans"












If my face wears an extra-special smile
And my eyes have an extra-special glow,
It's because my favorite holiday
Is on the way
And I know...

We're gonna have a real jim-dandy,
ginger-peachy sugar candy jamboree jubilee
crackerjack Christmas this year!

We're gonna have a sleighbell ringing' warm
and friendly carol-singin' rollicky frolicky
crackerjack Christmas, I hear!

There'll be holly and sparkling snow
And a jolly lot of mistletoe, so...

Get ready for a very very super-duper
extra-merry lollapalooza of a Christmas,
my dear

'Cause we're gonna have a real humdinger
of a wing-ding whizz-bang bang-up gumdrop
big fat crackerjack Christmas this year!

We're gonna have a real jim-dandy,
ginger-peachy sugar candy jamboree jubilee
crackerjack Christmas this year!

We're gonna have a sleighbell ringing' warm
and friendly carol-singin' rollicky frolicky
crackerjack Christmas, I hear!

There'll be holly and sparkling snow
And a jolly lot of mistletoe, so...

Get ready for a very very super-duper
extra-merry lollapalooza of a Christmas,
my dear

'Cause we're gonna have a real humdinger
of a wing-ding whizz-bang bang-up gumdrop
big fat crackerjack Christmas this year!
