2018 Little Chase Season Highlights (12-31-18)

Hi everybody,

This week's final 2018 Little Chase Season Highlight is another set of pictures of me as Muttonchops Magoo when I decided to run for Governor and Senator from Pennsylvania.  Although I ran a spirited campaign...I was unsuccessful in becoming the first ever Governor-Senator.

I had a lot of fun portraying a filthy rich railroad tycoon.  Although old Muttonchops has returned to the 1800s....I wonder if he will ever come back for another appearance?!

Vote for Muttonchops....

I was sure this pie would get me more votes...

2018 Little Chase Season Highlights (12-24-18)

Hi everybody,

I almost forgot to do some 2018 Little Chase Season Highlights before the end of the year.  Although I had lots of highlights in 2018, I unfortunately didn't take too many pictures of them.  One cool set of pictures that would count as a huge highlight is some of the photos of me dressed as Muttonchops Magoo, Railroad Tycoon from this past Halloween.

Just one of my many choo choo trains...

The Five Worst Christmas Songs

Hi everybody,

** About seven years ago I posted the five worst Christmas songs ever (The Five Worst Christmas Songs).  I decided to share that list again for you all to enjoy....



I love listening to Christmas songs this time of the year.  I enjoy most of them but there are a few I really don't like.  So I decided to list the five songs I dislike the most.  I hope you don't like them as much as I don't.

1.  The Chipmunks Christmas song (Not even sure if that's the right name)

2.  Paul McCartney "Wonderful Christmas Time"  (Even thinking about this song makes me ill)

3.  "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" (I don't have any idea who sings it and I don't really care)

4.  George Michael "Last Christmas"  (ugh)

5.  The Peanuts "Christmas Time is Here" (That song is very depressing and I'm a happy guy)

6.  The Waitresses "Christmas Wrapping"  (I know I said five songs but I just remembered that one and had to add it)
