A couple of years ago Allan C and I did the Great Mudcat Adventure trip around the USA visiting catters in about 30 states, On this journey we searched unsuccessfully for two music related artifacts, one was a "Barlo Knife" which I remembered from the song and when I returned home Allan had got one and sent it over to me. The other was a Plactic Jesus for a car dashboard. Today I recieved a package from Joe Offer and inside was a genuine Plastic Jesus. Thanks Joe. This must be what mudcat is all about.
Cheers Bill

Music related items eh.... any chance someone can send me an old fashioned millionaire? My searches have so far been unsuccessful, although I did find Paddy McGinty's goat once.

The funniest thing I saw was Sue signing the song Plastic Jesus in the Tap and Spile whitby last year - it took a while before I realised she was actually signing plastic cheeses!!

You know, it was a hard decision - should I send Bill the glow-in-the-dark model, or the one with the official colors of the Sacred Heart Auto League, with J.C. wearing a red cape. I chose the official one, with a genuine magnet on the bottom that will interfere with Bill's radio and make it sound like an old-time AM country radio station.

May you and J.C. have a good time together, Bill.

Barlow Knives are everywhere Bill.   Did you find one? I'll send one to you if it will get through customs.

I'm still trying to figure out that song that Allan sang while he and Bill stopped by Greenville. It was about a Jewish man..."Goldberg" or something like that...I wish I knew what it was.

Mat, the song was "Rubenstein Remembers" It was written by a neighbour of mine called Ewan Carruthers. Sadly he is not with us now, He moved to Callifornia a few years ago.

Hi, Harpy - I have a degree in theology and I've worked and taught in the Catholic Church all my life, and you know I'm proud to be a Catholic (a member of the loyal opposition, perhaps; but proud nonetheless). And yes, I'm reasonably orthodox. I learned "Plastic Jesus" from classmates in a Catholic seminary, same place where I learned Has Anybody Seen J.C.?. Plastic statues and glow-in-the-dark rosaries and St. Christopher medals are objects that are often used with more superstition than faith.

Given the proper attitude, these objects can be helpful reminders to focus faith. A sense of humor can help a person keep that "proper attitude." People of faith don't get into trouble if they know how to laugh at themselves.

I think Jesus would agree with that. So would Buddha. And so, I dare say, would Mohammed.
