Christmas In The Time Of Covid 19, Part 4

Been a couple of weeks, but I'm still here.  And I'm still working, so that's a good thing.  I try to stay home on the weekends, not leaving the house for 60 hours or so, and it's tough. I don't know how some of you are doing it out there, staying home all the time, except for occasional trips to the grocery. I guess we've all got to do what we can to get through this pandemic.  It's the sort of thing you figure won't happen in your lifetime, but then up it pops. But we'll get through it, I have no doubt about that.  Here's another record in my short series of Christmas records to make the isolation a little easier to bear.  I wish I could do more, or at least do something a little more frequently, but it's hard to gain any traction here.  The record tonight is something I've seen shared out plenty of times before, but I recently found a copy of it and thought I'd take a stab at it. I've also included the rarely-if-ever seen B-side, a non Christmas comedy song that owes a little more than it's fair share to Ray Stevens.  It's been 40 years since this record (and a whole host of similar ones for other teams) came out, and Cleveland isn't any closer to a Superbowl title. This is Elliott, Walter & Bennett-The Twelve Days Of A Cleveland Brown Christmas b/w It (Paid 7" 45 RPM PAD-COB 9, Mono, 1980).

And for those kind enough to leave me a comment, here's a bonus share, remastered from a download from Archive.org. This is a great slice of ethnic Polish humor that I at first mistook for some hipster lingo. I think this will be right up your alley.

I see the bonus comes from Milwaukee. I went to college in that city, and soon learned that it was largely Polish and German. I loved the place.

As for the Browns, they last won a championship when I was 15 and I am now 71. Not such a good record. Then again, the Indians last won a World Series before I was born!

Thanks so much, Ernie! The last few weeks have been exhausting but this makes it a little easier!

The oddest times in which I've lived...and these little diversions are perfect. Thanks, Ernie!
