Rich’s Note: We had Cathy and Cindy (our exchange student friends from
Taiwan) over for dinner last night. During the holiday break they had
traveled to New York and Los Angeles and were kind enough to bring us
presents from their travels. One of the things we marveled over was the
wrapping. Cindy had decorated a package with tiny tissue paper roses that
she had proudly made herself. After dinner, during which we learned of each
other’s different holidays and traditions, we cleared the table and Cathy
and Cindy taught Susan and Molly how to make tiny paper roses and birds out
of paper and puffy stars out of clear straws. I think their parents did a
great job raising these girls; and I’m so glad we have gotten the chance to

Simply Tim: FIRST SNOWFALL
There’s something magical about the first snowfall of the year. Like
reminiscent smells and familiar yet forgotten tunes, the first sight of
falling snow sparks in me a strange childhood excitement. A couple of days
ago my area had a light dusting, not much, but enough to think: “Oh boy, no
work today!”, even though I work out of my home office. I stood at my patio
door and watched the mesmerizing snowflakes. Suddenly, I felt chilled. “Time
for a fire!” I exclaimed. A short while later I had the season’s first fire
crackling in my living room fireplace. Outside, the snow stopped, its

Do you remember?
Ahab, the Arab
Written by Ray Stevens
(intro: Arabian flute)
Let me tell you about Ahab the Arab
The sheik of the burning sand
He had emeralds and rubies just drippin' off 'a him
And a ring on every finger of his hand
He wore a big ol' turban wrapped around his head
And a scimitar by his side
And, every evenin', about midnight
He'd jump on his camel named Clyde, and ride
[Spoken] Silently through the night to the sultan's tent where he
would secretly meet up with Fatima of the Seven Veils,
swingingest grade "A" number one US choice dancer in
the sultan's whole harem, 'cause, heh, him and her had
a thing goin', you know, and they'd been carryin' on
for some time now behind the sultan's back and you
could hear him talk to his camel as he rode out across
dunes, his voice would cut through the still night desert
air and he'd say (imitate Arabic speech and finish with
which is Arabic for, "Stop, Clyde!" and Clyde'd say,
sound), which is camel for, "What the heck did he say
Well, he brought that camel to a screechin' halt (verbal screeching sound)
In the rear of Fatima's tent
Jumped off Clyde, snuck around the corner
And into the tent he went.
There he saw Fatima layin' on a zebra skin rug
[Spoken in falsetto and possibly with female backups] "Rings on her fingers
bells on her toes and a bone in her nose ho, ho."
[Spoken] There she was, friends, lyin' there in all her radiant
beauty, eating on a raisin, grape, apricot, pomegranate,
bowl of chittlin's, two bananas, three Hershey bars,
sipping on a RC co-cola listenin' to her transistor,
watchin' the Grand Ole Opry on the tube, readin' a Mad
magazine while she sung, "Does your chewing gum lose
it's flavor?" Yeah, Ahab walked up to her and he say,
(imitate Arabic speech), which is Arabic for "Let's twist
again like we did last summer, baby.!!" Ha, ha, ha!!
You know what I mean! Whew! She looked up at him from off the
give him one of the sly looks,
She said (suggestive giggles, then outright laughter) "Crazy, crazy, crazy
('round and around and around and around, and around and around and around)
Yeah, and that's the story 'bout Ahab the Arab
The sheik of the burnin' sand
Ahab the Arab, the swingin' sheik of the burnin' sand
