An Artie-ful game for the the whole family of Westers, best played around the hearth with popping chestnuts and ample egg nog:

Match Mr. Gordon's character with the appropriate expression of "Merry Christmas" in that character's dialect. For example:

99. Claude Achere Renard
100. Felice Muñez

y. Felice Navidad.
z. Joyeux Noël.

Correct answers: 99-z; 100-y. And bonus points if you name the episode in which the character (not the greeting) appeared. Thus: Muñez–"The Night of the Falcon"; Renard–"The Death-Maker."

Here we go:

1. Uncle Hans
2. Unnanmed saloon waiter outside of Houston, on the Mexican border
3. Unnamed red-suited henchman, with protective goggles
4. Captain Sumatra
5. Paolo Martínez
6. Angus MacGordon
7. Mr. Ortuglo
8. Unnamed Hindi magician
9. Fyodor Rimsky
10. Salvatore
11. Unnamed Irish expressman
12. Unnamed Yiddish tailor

a. Nollaig chridheil huibh.
b. Mele Kalikimaka.
c. Buon Natale.
d. God jul.
e. Milad Majid.
f. Shub Badadin.
g. Mo'adim Lesimkha. Chena tova.
h. Nollaig Shona Duit.
i. S Rozhdestvom Kristovym.
j. Feliz Natal
k. Ding Daan Faai Lok.
l. En frehlicher Grischtrdaag.

4. Captain Sumatra - b Mele Kalikimaka

Most obliged, Leslie dear. Hope to bring an honorable result for the team. Now where is the rest of the gang? Over-Christmasing and Over-Chanukkaing?

Greetings from sunny southern California! I left the white Christmas of Minnesota to enjoy some time out here with relatives. I left my boots at home!

Spring and Leslie make a good team.

I spent the day at the Getty Museum. Wow! This happy calligrapher got to drool over a roomful of gothic illuminated manuscripts.

By the way, in today's LA Times there was an review of mystery writer Andrew Klavan's new book "Dynamite Road". It sounds very good for those of us who like mysteries. The reviewer said," 'Things are not what they seem' is a nearly universal subtext of noir." In that case, I suppose it is worth a look.

Hope to check in again soon.

What a faithhful band: Even over the holidays, we hang in there together, if only to offer weather reports. I'm glad everyone sounds so relaxed.

As to the quiz, we almost had an ARABELLA last weekend. The Dyamic Duo of M Spring and lleroy nudged pretty darned close. If only Spring had remembered an old Bing Crosby/Andrews Sisters cover, she would have had it:

"Mele Kalikimaka" is Hawaii's way
To say "Merry Christmas" to you.


Thus, the correct pairing is 3-b. And the "red-suit with goggles" was Artie's undercover disguise to infiltrate Adam Barclay's mountain lair in "The Night of the Deadly Blossom." That leaves 4-k, Captain Sumatra's Ding Daan Faai Lok, the Cantonese version of "Merry Christmas."

The other pairings: 1-l, 2-d, 5-j, 6-a, 7-e, 8-f, 9-i, 10-c, 11-h, 12-g. Spring and Leslie share a well-earned Anabella!

HEADS UP: Next Weekend's Quiz will be posted on New Year's Eve, with a fitting title. Correct answers will be confirmed late Saturday/early Sunday. Meanwhile, have a good week, and see '03 out in style.

Does this help?

. . . That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway.

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright,
The sun to shine by day and all the stars by night. . . .


Strum the ukelele!
