Well Hello there KimC, Have no fear, your parcel has been sent forth, but I have heard news that the elves have broken down en route and there may be a delay, as they had to use the British Post Office System, who say it shouldnt be too long, it was sent on 21st December and will be with you presently. Hope the wait is worth it :0)

Well, Brits say Americans say 'rooster' because they don't want to use the word 'cock'. Americans says they use the two words interchangeably. I'd be more inclined to believe the ones who speak the American rather than the British dialect of English.

Woof. Thank you, Secret Santa.

A parcel wrapped in paper covered in sweets has arrived: all the way from Australia, and arrived quite safely though I'm afraid I wasn't in the house when the elves delivered.

I'll look forward to getting my pack to help me open it on Sunday, but I'll have the contents. Meanwhile it's safely by the tree.

This is fun.

To my Suspiciously Secret Santa,

Since I'm on a Christmas trip,
Visiting my sweet grandbaby,
Santa, fly with care, don't slip,
The present could be later, maybe.
If it's there on New Year's Day,
That is when I'll get to see it,
Meanwhile, joyfully I play
With my family; I say, So Be It.
Safe journey, Santa, and safe home!
There's no rush, so have no fear,
(Except, perhaps, for this bad poem?)
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

I will be pleased whenever things arrive. I have scattered relatives and friends and I will be getting and giving gifts for some time. I trust and believe, for MudSantas have never let me down, bless their collective generous hearts. It still has a chance.

I know the US Postal Service seems to be going to Hell since I retired. After 37 years they're finally taking one of my suggestions seriously! But I still have faith in them, as well, or at least those from lower management on down.

I've gotten to know a few of the wee folk, too, through Hash and McGhee, and though a bit erratic and with a tendancy to party hard (I've never had any leftovers from the feasts I've put out over the years), I trust them implicitly, as well. Never has there been any complaints about reindeer.

So however it arrives, I'll be greatful and content with the content.

Waiting is part of Christmas, and alone, divorced and with friends and family widespread, it's up to me to do it. Don't worry, I could do it in my sleep.

Dear Claire Bear,
Your parcel is on the sleigh and the reindeer have promised they will look after it until it arrives with you. They hope it will be there before Christmas and have said they will do all they can to get it under your tree in time. If they don't it will be beacuse Rudolf likes to stop at every single house and eat up all the carrots and mince pies that have been left out for him.
Lots of Love

We haven't done the card thing before, and I don't remember if we actually thought the cards should be "secret" or if it was simply a chance to send a nice card to someone instead of a gift. So I'll open this up a bit.

If you would like to send a card to someone you know is participating in this secret santa and/or card thing (in addition to an address you may have already randomly received) send me a PM and ask for the address of that person.

No addresses will be published in the thread, and none to unknown folks (since you have to be logged in to send PMs, that's one filter right there) but if you don't want your address given to anyone from mudcat who wants to send you a card, also send me a PM. You might put "Don't distribute my address" in the subject line. I doubt this will be the case, but I have in the past run into folks here who were dealing with stalkers or annoyers, and I can understand not wanting addresses released in that case!

Short sleeved shirts? Children's thighs? Too much egg nog, methinks, Severn. And quite what your level of goodness has to do with my delivery team knowing where you live I have no idea, and nor do any of my elves.

However I'm sure you mean well and on the scales of "naughty or nice" I have no doubt how you'd weigh in, or I wouldn't be contemplating the small sack of goodies that will be coming your way. It is a smaller sack than we might have hoped, for various reasons to do with supply, ways and means and general lack of opportunity, but it is sent with much love.

To go with the mince pies, if you can't manage the mulled wine a nice glass of vintage port would be most welcome.   Rudolph and the boys would be happy with the traditional carrot.
