Baby, there’s the door …

Winnipeg Sun - - NEWS - HAL AN­DER­SON

With ev­ery­one ban­ning Baby, It’s Cold Out­side, I sat down with my band of big guys Mu­chos Ki­los to pen a new song all ra­dio sta­tions can be proud to play. Ladies and gen­tle­men, boys and girls, here are the lyrics to Baby, There’s The Door …

I re­ally can’t stay, you don’t have to say any­more.

I’ve got to go away, hey look I opened the door.

Say what’s in this drink, just wa­ter and ice I think.

Why don’t we kiss, I’m try­ing to re­spect your ev­ery wish.

I’m telling you no no no, that’s why I’m not mov­ing closer.

You sure you’re good if I do not stay, yup the Uber is on it’s way.

Well I gotta go, what­ever you think’s best.

Baby, There’s The Door.


I ran into Keith Macpher­son up in Gimli over the sum­mer and the well-known Man­i­toba mu­si­cian told me he was com­ing out with a book. Well it’s out now. It’s called Mak­ing

Sense Of Mind­ful­ness. First of all, what’s mind­ful­ness? Keith says it’s the prac­tise of pay­ing at­ten­tion in the present mo­ment to your­self and oth­ers with kind­ness. It sounds sim­ple but we don’t do it enough, do we? Stop beat­ing your­self up and in­stead build your­self up. Good luck with the book Keith! It’s great to see your in­ner dream come true.


And be­cause I love dogs so much, I’m al­ways hav­ing other dog lovers on my ra­dio show.

Nancy Duyk­ers joined me this week af­ter tak­ing in a dog that was shot in the leg in North­ern Man­i­toba. Soon af­ter get­ting Sheba, Nancy no­ticed she was gain­ing a lot of weight. Yup, she was preg­nant! Nancy con­tin­ued to nurse Sheba back to health and she cared for cared for all 11 pup­pies too! Mom and ba­bies are no longer with Nancy, they’re in the process of be­ing adopted out now. Way to go Nancy! And good luck to Sheba and her pups ...


It’s al­most the end of the year so here come all the lists. Ap­par­ently, 2018 was a big year for health food baby names. Av­o­cado-lov­ing Mil­len­ni­als are nam­ing their kids af­ter their favourite foods. Kiwi is at the top of

the list. Fol­lowed by Kale, Maple, Saf­fron, Rose­mary and Sage.


We’ll end this week with a short list of stuff over­heard At Santa’s work­shop:

“It seems like all we make now is iphones.”

“Ru­mour has it they’re go­ing to start out­sourc­ing a lot of this.”

“You re­al­ize global warm­ing will have us un­der­wa­ter soon.”

“I hear we’ll be work­ing for Jeff Be­zos next year.”

“Stop mak­ing lawn darts, they’re not le­gal any­more.”




Maybe Will Fer­rell and Zoey Deschanel will have to try Hal’s lyrics in the Elf re­make.
