Easter: Crusade Against Racism

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord has decided to interrupt the updates on His Melbourne adventure to speak to you his flock about an issue that is close to His heart – RACISM.  Even though the Lord did not make His children equal in terms of appearance, endowment, personality and intelligence He sees no need to parade the ‘gift basket’ He has bestowed upon you with arrogance.

Please take 3:19 minutes to watch the following video which is a compilation of scenes from the Easter themed family movie, Hop.  Although the movie was released in 2011, the issues highlighted and the fight against racism are timeless.

In view of this and as a tribute to this hardworking species, the Lord has enlisted the help of chicks to awaken Him.

Who better for the job than Carlos and his crew?

Like the song, they braved crossing the border to go to His His Holiness.

I will follow Him, Ever since He touched my heart I knew,

There isn’t an ocean too deep, A mountain so high it can keep,

 Keep me away, away from His love.
I love Him, I love Him, I love Him, And where He goes, I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow.
We will follow Him,(follow him) Follow Him wherever He may go,(uhh, uhh, uhh …)

 There isn’t an ocean too deep … (too deep) A mountain so high it can keep, Keep me away, away from His love…

They even managed to slip past the German guard dog, a Reh Pinscher!*

Their faith was put to the test.

They said Gloria


Their faith was rewarded!

They rejoiced!

Carlos will always be Carlos!

Happy Easter Jesus Lovers.  The Lord calls upon you his flock to continue the crusade against racism!

Rock on,

Wheeze & SQueak

*Hermano : Brother

*Reh Pinscher: Miniature Pinschers originated from Germany and they called them Reh Pinschers because they looked like the small red deers.

*Gloria: ‘Glory Be’ in Spanish. Glory be to the Father,  and to the Son,  and to the Holy Spirit,  as it was in the beginning,  is now, and ever shall be,  world without end. Amen.

*No se acuerda el cura de cuando fue sacristán: ‘The priest doesn´t remember his days as a verger’ On escalating to more influential positions, it´s a test not to forget our humbler days and continue being understanding of people of lower standing.

All Sorts of Indulgence in Melbourne!

Dear Jesus Lover,

The good Lord let Wheeze and Squeak have the full day exploring and burning a hole in their little pockets on Brunswick Street.  It doesn’t get trendier or sweatier than shopping there in 40 degree heat!  Freshening up was imperative before their dinner reservations at Spanish hot spot MOVIDA!

He waged another crusade on body odour and WON!

The floor to ceiling mirrrors were good for ensuring His hair was perfectly coiffed.

The Lord raided the mini bar for pre-dinner drinks.  It’s always good to get a head start!

He took pity on his flock and absolved the patrons of Movida of their sins, mainly gluttony.  It wasn’t their fault that the tapas was positively sinful!

Where else but the Crown Hotel and Casino to end a fabulous day!

He managed to supervise the hired minions taking down His birthday decorations.  Always micro-managing.

Even the lighting was big and fabulous!

The perfect way to end the day with in-your-face glitz, over-priced highstreet clothing and games of chance!  We love you Melbourne!

Rock on,

Wheeze & SQueak
