Elvis and Latkes

We’ve got lots of Christmas music. One of our favorites is Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love. She sings it just about every year on the Letterman Show. Wonder if that’s happening this year. Darlene Love’s had a long career, Bernie says, going way way back to early days with Phil Spector. Phil Spector: that name rings a bell. A perp of some sort?

Bob Dylan has a new Christmas record out, Bernie says. “Hard to ignore that!”

Today is Sunday – Elvis gospel on XM/Sirius is a dead giveaway. Hey! Dead Giveaway – is that a possible title? My favorite Elvis gospel song is Milky White Way. A long time ago – this is a story of Admin’s – way before youtube, hard to imagine – Admin spent a day trying to track down the original Milky White Way by the Trumpeteers, finally found it at Skippy White’s in Cambridge Mass. Is that still around?

Note to Wookie of Chevy Chase: never had latkes but now I want to. And thanks for the Chanukah wishes. One of Bernie’s mom’s husbands along the way celebrated Chanukah, but by the time it came around on the calendar they were divorced. You should meet the new guy!

    good Morning Chet,

    I have been thinking of Dog related titles and wonder, has "Dog Nab It" ever been used? Although I like "Dead Giveaway" too, it just doesn't have that doggy flavor. Can't find my holiday music. It must be in a 'safe' place. I like Jingle Bell Rock though.

    Chet, you have to gobble up a few latkes, they're like a little bit of heaven! And Merry Christmas from Mr. Peepers!

    Great pic, Mr. Peepers. And, to Abbie – the title's terrific. We're going to pass it along to the powers that be, and since they probably don't exist we'll kick it around ourselves here at chetthedog.

    Hey Chet,

    Melanie has a favorite Christmas CD. She got it a long time ago, we lost it for her, and she found it again on iTunes. That's something on that machine she types on all the time.

    A Wild Christmas. Guy named Phil Aaberg and Bernie Krause put it together with wild animal noises. Is that your Bernie?

    Anyway we like to listen to it, until the whale songs come on. Then all of a sudden all of us are up and out the door looking for the whales. Never seen them though.

    Have fun in the sun, we're having a blast in the snow. We're coming in and shaking on Melanie and she yells at us.

    Happy holidays to all, as they apply.
