Phil and Jill just built a whole new backyard onto Terrapin Crossroads, and they’re doing a Kid’s Day type of deal in April on Sunday afternoons: Phil reads stories and the Phamily Band plays children’s songs (and, I’m sure, Ripple) for the kiddies while Mom and Dad get lightly trashed at the bocce courts. (There are now bocce courts, apparently.)
This sounds like fun for everyone, and to mock it would be irredeemably prickish; I’ll simply note that Brent is in the mascot costume.
Also: Precarious Lee had nothing to do with building that stage. That’s a solid-looking wooden structure.
Although: would simply listing the children’s books that Phil rejected as inappropriate be mockery? I can’t see how. So, TotD presents Children’s Books Phil Won’t Be Reading At TXR Kid’s Day:
- Horton Hears a Jew.
- One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Jew Fish.
- The Night the Jew Stole Christmas. (Let’s just say that Phil will not be reading any anti-Semitic children’s books.)
- Superman Destroys a City and then Straight-Up Murders a Guy.
- Make Way for Deadheads.
- Winnie the Pooh and Parish, Too.
- Bi-Curious George.
- The Koran.
- Babar Goes to the Hostility Suite.
- Beatrix Pothead.
