I wish you a happy new year with a video of my favorite Muppet--Beaker.
Peace be with you as you greet 2016.
I shan't participate in the January 1, 2016, Battle of the Bands. I have lots of work to do, but that's a good problem. Besides, Lord Franklin and Lady Penelope join me in my turret of the castle while I edit.
|Lady Penelope approaches his Lordship as he lounges on the sofa,|
tail and one white paw clearly visible.
"Please, may we visit the queen?"Lady Penelope inquires.
|"We must watch quietly while Queen Junebug works,"|
grownup Franklin cautions the much younger Penelope.
Happy New Year!
Infinities of love,
P.S. The image of Beaker with the violin is really Sherry Ellis of Mama Diaries. How clever of you, Sherry, to get a makeover as Beaker.
Hi Janie - Happy 2016 to you all and to Penelope and Franklin ... the Muppets always amuse. Sherry is amazingly clever ... cheers to you both for your hard work, and inspiring us with your posts ...ReplyDelete
Good luck and a very happy year ahead .. cheers Hilary
Sherry is quite clever. I don't know how she managed to make herself look exactly like Beaker.Delete
It's good Franklin and Penelope have each other to watch over you. Happy new year.ReplyDelete
They are such good friends. It makes me happy that they stay in my office most of the day, very close to one another.Delete
Beaker is adorable and hilarious! Thanks for the giggle. Will miss you on this next Battle of the Bands but will look forward to future installments. Don't work too hard! Take some time for yourself and enjoy the dawning of a brand new year. Happy New Year to you! Tell Penelope and Franklin I said Hi...ReplyDelete

Penelope and Franklin send you wet, sloppy kisses. I do not. Happy New Year!Delete
Hugs to you for the New Year. I mailed the new book to you yesterday, so be on the lookout!ReplyDelete
You are so kind and thoughtful. I love seeing the finished product.Delete
Glad you are starting out the new year busy as a bee! And with such good company, too. ;) Happy New Year, Janie!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Rita Pita Pan.Delete
The lordship looks like a Yeti:) Love Beaker and that is a great Band post to end the New Year with. Happy New Year and see you next year!:)ReplyDelete
Lord Franklin looks a bit scruffy although he hasn't grown a winter coat.Delete
Loved the video--Happy New Year, Janie!!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Madam Ducky.Delete
I love Muppet Day at your house! Happy sweet 2016, Janie and friends.ReplyDelete
Every day should be Muppet Day!Delete
Damn I love the muppets, and those two old guys from the balcony always crack me up. Happy New Year, Janie:)ReplyDelete
The two old "guys" in the balcony are Willy Dunne Wooters and me.Delete
That Ode to Joy is great. I feel like Jimmy Fallon would love it :)ReplyDelete
Jimmy Fallon is hilarious.Delete
That IS a good problem, Janie. Happy new year :))ReplyDelete
I adore good problems. Finding a solution is fun.Delete
That it is.Delete
Are you saying that ISN'T you directing the orchestra? Gee whiz, I totally missed that one. I thought I remembered you having that shirt.ReplyDelete
Happy, happy New Year, dear friend. Let's whoop it up, geezer style.
Oh, my. Geezer style is pretty wild around here. We had Mexican food on New Year's Eve.Delete
Have a regal and royal new year!ReplyDelete
Why, thank you. We shall, and I mean we as in the royal wee.Delete
I love the Muppets!ReplyDelete
Especially the Swedish chef. I sounded a lot like him on New Year's Eve.
How many drinks did that require?Delete
Happy 2016 I hope your holidays were wonderfulReplyDelete
Happy New Year Janie!ReplyDelete
Happy, Happy New Year!Delete
Janie Janie- I love the Beaker video. I stopped by for the battle only to find out there is no battle this time. I am catching up can you tell? wishing you a Happy New year!!!!ReplyDelete
Other people have battles. I dropped out for the current battle because I have so much editing to do.Delete
Happy New Year! Too much work is always a good thing. Or at least I try to tell myself that as I'm neck deep in unfinished writing/blog posts/editing/yard work/grooming/whatever.ReplyDelete
May your 2016 be as wonderful as Beaker (also my favorite Muppet).
I'm thrilled that you hold Beaker in such high esteem.Delete
Beaker is awesome, but my favourite is the Swedish Chef. Because he's one of the few people who can rhyme with Jeff.ReplyDelete
Not really, but he is my favourite.
Jeff the Swedish Chef: Now talk like the chef.Delete
Mer da skirmee dermee da chicken. Mork mork mork!Delete
Outstanding! You need to make a video. You can wear a chef's hat and apron.Delete
