Mo's Manic Monday - Carol

Posted: Monday, December 17, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgen. Don't forget to cruise by MM HQ at It's A Blog Eat Blog World. Today's theme is Carol.

That's my aunt's name...but she spells it with an "e" on the end. So I guess I'll do something else.

The season hasn't quite arrived until I hear Burl Ives!



One of the best voices ever, Mr Nat King Cole.



Heehee!



Spare a thought for the men and women serving our country around the world, who will be away from their families during this holiday season.



I wish you all the joy of the season as you celebrate your traditions. Be kind, be tolerant, be happy.

Joyous Yule!

    "Be kind, be tolerant, be happy."
    I love that. Good advice all around.

    I have an aunt Carolyn, so we almost sorta have something in common.

    Thanks for doing Manic Monday!

    From the first days after American Thanksgiving, my car radio is set to a station in Vermont that plays nothing but Christmas music ... and I sing and car dance wherever I go... especially whenever I hear Burl Ives!

    Enjoy your first "I don't have to go in today cause I'm on vacation" day.

  1. Happy MM, Travis. :)

    I loooove Nat King Cole. Happy Christmas, friend.

  1. Mo says:

    I think Burl Ives is my favorite Christmas Carol singer...
    except for Barbra Streisand - which always struck me as ironic, her being Jewish and all...
    but nothing beats her Jingle Bells!

  1. Loved the Beach Boys. They have always been a favorite. Well done and have a great MM Travis. :)

  1. Akelamalu says:

    Love the music Travis. :)

  1. Shelia says:

    Great post Travis. May you and your family and friends be blessed with a wonderful Christmas and New Year also.

  1. Jamie says:

    Wonderful selections though I want to know what was on the video "NO Longer Available".

    May you and yours have a joyful holiday.

  1. Bond says:

    coming back later to watch the videos...

    Nat is da bomb

  1. Steven says:

    Ah...the wonderful sounds of Nat King Cole. I'm getting more in the Christmas spirit by the minute! Thanks!

  1. I love Christmas Music...nice selection...(but the beach boys one disappears)

  1. TopChamp says:

    Happy Holidays! (I really hate that 1st song though)

  1. Alice & Reba says:

    Happy Manic Monday, Travis. I can`t get any of it to load today for some strange reason, but was able to read the words and it sounds like a good one.

  1. Linda says:

    Some very lovely Christmas carol choices! And you're right about the season not arriving until hearing Burl Ives sing.

  1. Jeff B says:

    Merry Christmas my good man!

  1. Travis says:

    Mimi: I didn't have a chance to make rounds today. Hopefully later in the week.

    Janna: My neighbor's name is Carolyn. We're practically related!

    Julie: Heehee!

    Ann: I did! But it was a very long day.

    Ian: And to you Sir.

    Kyra: Right back atcha.

    Mo: We heard Babs singing the Ave Maria today. I got chills.

    Sandee: Glad you got to hear that one. I guess the clip stopped working sometime today.

    Akelamalu: I'm pleased to share it.

    Shelia: Many thanks.

  1. Travis says:

    Jamie: That was Little St Nick from the Beach Boys, but I guess it quit working.

    V: Yes he is.

    Steven: And not a moment too soon I should think!

    Katherine: Sorry about that...don't know what happened.

    TC: I love Burl Ives!

    Alice & Reba: Hmmmm...I wonder if there were problems today with the clips.

    Meri: Smooch!

    Roger: Maybe tomorrow?

    Linda: That's like the holiday bell for me.

    Jeff: And to you Sir!

  1. I'll take Nat King Cole for this group...I like the Beach Boys, too. But the smoothe, clean sound of Nat - nothing like it.
    Johnny Carson once asked Frank Sinatra, "Who do you listen to when you're making love?" I think you could've asked Nat that, too...
    Hope you're enjoying your days off and it isn't too cold for you.
    You and Pam and your families - Have a very blessed Christmas!
    ~~~Blessings~~~

  1. Burl Ives will forever be connected with those stop action animated Christmas classics.

  1. Dana says:

    Ah...Christmas songs...I love them!

  1. Travis says:

    Gracie: I love Nat's voice. And so far so good on the vacation.

    Songbird: Yup...when I hear his voice I naturally think of Christmas.

    Dana: Me too!
