Yesterday afternoon, Cathy and I decided to go for a date at SM Megamall without the children. True to form, we ended up shopping for the kids anyway!
I passed by the House of Praise kiosk at the basement level of the mall and riffled through the CDs in the PHP75 discount bin when I spotted… THIS!
A VeggieTales Greatest Hits collection for PHP75?!
Almost all audio CDs from VeggieTales were flushed out of distribution when Big Idea signed distribution rights over to Viva a few years back. Since then, Viva has brought it a bunch of VeggieTales DVDs (thank you, Viva!) but all audio production has stopped.
This was a gem of a discovery, and it was all I could do not to jump around.
Two CDs behind the VeggieTales Have We Got a Show For You CD was… THIS!
Another VeggieTales gem!
The VeggieTales Sing-Along CDs were in rare supply, and this particular one, the Pirates Boat Load of Fun, contained a whole bunch of traditional and original tracks from Larry the Cucumber, Mr. Lunt, and Pa Grape, who together, make up the infamous bunch of scallywags, the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything!
15 tracks, plus minus-one tracks, total 30 songs.
At PHP75.00 each.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why it’s awesome having a God who likes to bless His kids so His kids can bless their kids. VeggieTales rock! When best friend Raft3r gets back here, he’ll be bringing in two more CDs for Nathan & Nicki: Bob & Larryâ€™s Sunday Morning Songs andÂ Veggie Tales: On the Road With Bob & Larry. My house is a garden of VeggieTales.
Oh, by the way, Cathy picked up a few clothes for Nicki. Clothes for girls, how exciting. *roll eyes* Hahaha, kiddin’.
