But I am moving sometime soon as my 38 stairs are getting too much for all my sore bits, so I'm downsizing, especially books & unused craft stuff! Charity (goodwill) shops are always pleased to see me trundle in with my trolley full of good stuff!

    I don't eat chocolate or other sweet stuff, nor do I drink coffee or alcohol. I very occasionally drink herbal tea, but my mini-packets of assorted teas usually go out of date before I use them up!

1. What is your age range? "A certain age."

2. Gender? F

3. Do you have a favorite color? Dark greens and blues.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? I already own far more books than I will ever manage to read in my lifetime

5. What books have you really been wanting? I've thought about reading the Terry Pratchett books, but haven't found or figured out which is the first book an any of his series to start with. One of those.

6. What type of music do you like? Ecclectic - folk, classic, blues, rock, jazz

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Yours! The one you perform on or produced

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? I have NetFlix and a nearby well-stocked public library. I can find anything I'm looking for

9. What is your t-shirt size? Medium or Large, depending on how much shrinkage may be involved

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I've been decluttering for years. Please, no collectibles! I am a tea drinker, but can buy most any kind of loose tea from around the world. I seem to have an interesting collection of tea balls.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Gardening, photography, sewing, beading

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? "Tone" is the operative word - there are enough metal allergies in my world that if it isn't a good quality of real gold, or sterling silver, I can't wear it. Puts me out of the SS price range, sadly . . .

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. It's the process I enjoy - reading pages from your hometown paper used to wrap inside the parcel, a view of your world and interests. Please keep it small so it doesn't cost a lot to mail and it generally ships faster that way anyway.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I am allergic to coconut - and in this day and age, coconut oil and other parts of the nut are in many things, such as soaps, shampoo, lotions, and foods. The chemical names don't necessarily tell you they're coconut products, but things like "sodium laurelth sulfate" (the sudsy part of soap and shampoo) comes from coconut. So personal care items or processed foods are not a good choice for me.

Age Range-One year at a time, but will be turning 68 soon

Gender--I'm listed on the Engendered Species List as Male

Favorite colors--Blue and green, as I still have some red hair left

Books-I keep claiming I have too many, but books about or songbooks of traditional music are always nice, and from where you live, even nicer.

Book Wants-Music, as mentioned above, History from your area or share one of your favorite mysteries with me.

Music- Most kinds, but as this is primarily a Folk Music forum, traditional music from your country or area, Local bands you like of any kind, or since I'm co-hosting a radio show these days, Blues or Blues-related music recorded in the 1920s & 1930s, as that is the focus of our show. Or even better that that, one of YOURS, if you are a recording artist.

Films- I have enough of those at present

T-shirt size--Extra Large

Collections-LPs, CDs, old metal porcelain enamel advertising signs or advertising thermometers, dust (but I have enough, thank you). An extra phonograph needle never hurts.

Hobbies-Singing, walking, birding

Jewelry--I don't wear it

Other information--If you are from outside the USA, for any paper package stuffing, make it the comics page from your local paper.

I am diabetic, so food would not be the best thing, unless you're real careful in what you send.

A nice tweed hat with personality would be good in a size 7 1/8

I too am in the process of decluttering.

We're home again, so I can do stuff on the big computer!

1. What is your age range?
   Let's just say on the shady side of 60 and leave it at that, shall we?

2. Gender?
   Girl.

3. Do you have a favorite color?
   Green - yellow - autumn golours. I really really don't like pink, and I don't go much for purple either.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
   Don't have a favourite author. I like reading about social history, and enjoy a good murder.

5. What books have you really been wanting?
   None really - I'/m a library user.

6. What type of music do you like?
   Pretty much anything folky (except for those chickies who sing pages from their diaries), and early music, and classical guitar.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)?
   None, and it's DVD.

9. What is your t-shirt size?
   Depends on the manufacturer but a large/extra large should do it. Loose is always more comfortable than too tight.

    Wombats (Aussie marsupial) - not real ones, alas - and if I could I would collect antique jewellery, sigh......

11. What are some of your other hobbies?

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
    Either

Many thanks in advance, Santa!

OK guys and gals,

You should all have a message with the identity and address of your santee for this Christmas. As far as the records I have got are concerned you have not got someone you have had before but the records are incomplete so I have done me best but may have stuffed up inadvertently.

So go and play good children all.

You got allergies? That's a sign of evolutionary weakness.
You don't like gold? That's a sign of evolutionary weakness.
You're over the hill? That's a sign of evolutionary weakness.
You're a male? That's a sign of evolutionary weakness (except in me).
You're a female? That a sign of evolutionary weakness.
You were born somewhere other than the US of A? That's a sign of evolutionary weakness.
You like folk music? That's a sign of evolutionary greatness.

1. What is your age range? I'm 32 (33 on January 5)

2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? Midnight blue, black, silver and blood red

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Authors - Nicci French, Virginia Andrews, Ben Elton. Type of book - most stuff, but not into horror. Scripts of things are good - doesn't matter what, I just love scripts. Already got Doctor Who scripts and the Cursed Child one. My usual reading material is Doctor Who related, or by the above authors.

5. What books have you really been wanting? The Landry series by VC Andrews. I'm partially sighted, so large print is good. I usually go for audiobooks or on my Kindle, though.

6. What type of music do you like? Rock (Queen, Proclaimers, that sort of thing), soundtracks, musicals, and I have to confess a liking for Big Band - Glenn Miller type stuff.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Avenue Q soundtrack, Wicked soundtrack - musicals in general. Or any Harry Potter soundtrack (except Order Of The Phoenix because I've already got that). I wouldn't mind the Stephen Fry audios of any Harry Potter from Chamber of Secrets onwards (I've got Philosopher's Stone), but it's a bit out of SS price range.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Pokemon Indigo League (first series of the anime) on DVD. Other than that, not sure.

9. What is your t-shirt size? Medium (UK size 14 - 16)

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Butterfly stuff, interesting coins, teddies, owl stuff, Doctor Who stuff, trivia - also recently started a Pokemon plushie collection (I got a little Bulbasaur and Charmander)

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Quizzing, colouring, Internetting, listening to music, playing pool, sleeping...

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Silver, but I have set jewellery that I always wear (wedding and engagement rings, bracelets, Doctor Who wristband, owl magnifier, TARDIS pendant, sonic screwdriver pendant) so don't need any more, thanks. Mum also makes it, so if I'm wanting new earrings, I ask her. :-)

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. I'm autistic, so sensory things can be interesting - I love the feel of velvet or velvety surfaces because they relax me. I'm also partial to sparkly things that I can play with.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. I'm diabetic, teetotal, terrified of clowns, spiders and dogs (among other things), and allergic to nickel silver and sodium metabisulphite (a food preservative). I also hate the feel of raw silk.

Dear Sandra,

    I've been a Scout Elf for only a few years now, and this is my first assignment in OZ, and although I've seen a bit of the world, I have yet, until now, to experience your corner.....uh....PART.... of the globe. (Globes don't have corners. I'm off to a bad start already). My job is to follow you and observe you and try to figure out what your likes and needs might be while staying invisible to you at all times, but until I finish reading this rather useless guide book or meet up with some of the other elves assigned to some of the other Mudcatters down here, I might have to bother you with a question or two about how to survive until I've finished my task, so please bear with me from time to time.

    OK, what to wear? I take it that it's summer there and that it's pretty warm most of the time, so one does not need down undies down under, so I'll dress light and summery, to summarize, but if I guess wrong, I would not know where to find something in my size.

    Looking at pictures of the local fauna, some of it seems strange but not too threatening. When one starts out at this job, the new employees get the worst assignments, and the first year I got Africa. That's a terrible place to be "bite-size", and there's a high attrition rate on us beginners, but I made it through alright.

    Hmmmmm....library books. It doesn't matter if they're a bit overdue, does it?

    That's all for now, thank you. I'll be seeing you soon, though I hope you don't see me.


Yours truly,
Elfish Presently Jr.

Well, Old Man or Lady River, you must know something, but don't say much amounting to anything, at least about your identity, but oh how you Babylon (I've never seen the Rivers Of Babylon, myself, but am familliar with the Babylon Brooks. My advice to you is to steer clear of the Rivers of Joan.....

As for Flo, she won't go much of anywhere with me anymore, but that's OK, I'm finally at the point where I'm over Flo now and waiting on my next bank statement......

Next time, use a boat rather than an inner tube, and you'll stay a little drier.......

I've even been listening to my old LP copy of Chuck Berry's "Concerto In B Goode", for old goodness sake, though the Chess albums were better than anything he ever recorded for Mercury......

No hints from you so far, though, so you might only get a lump of coal this year - because poor Santa has so many little boys and girls to look after that sometimes he just plain plumb runs out of ideas.

Kindest Regards,
S-S-H Elf

Here we go:

1. What is your age range? 67

2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? I love 'em all.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Folklore and suchlike related, of course, history, humor, and fantasy. Used are just fine, as long as all the words are there. Also stuff local to your area.

5. What books have you really been wanting? Nothing particular at the moment, but if you're inspired…

6. What type of music do you like? Anglo-american traditional (surprise), ballads, storytelling, contradance and English country dance music, recitations, music hall, novelty songs and humor of all varieties.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Anything you think I'd enjoy, performers local to your area.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? I have plenty, but if you send anything, make sure it's Area 1 (North America). Folk performers you like are always welcome.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I don't collect so much as accumulate. Make it small, if you can; I'm trying to de-clutter the house. Mudcatters in the past have sent Christmas ornaments, and they have a place of honor on the tree so I can remember the givers

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Storytelling, embroidery, counted cross-stitch, and latch-hook, Japanese anime, cooking and baking.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Silver, but I won't turn down other metals.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. Please identify yourself somewhere in the pressie!

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. No allergies, I like almost anything.

To my SS: I'm easy to please, but I'm also a gambling woman, so bring it on. The one thing I don't want to do is make this a chore for you, so just have fun with it.

Well, since I've been reprimanded and threatened with a lump of coal (which seems somewhat unfair, as I haven't been naughty, just failed to provide information about likes and dislikes) I'd better complete this list, although it doesn't change much from year to year ...


1. What is your age range? Older than I'd like to own up to.

2. Gender? Seriously? Female.

3. Do you have a favorite color? Purple.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Dorothy Dunnett, Terry Pratchett - but I have all of the former and only lack some of the more recent of the latter.

5. What books have you really been wanting? Ridiculous tomes normally found in reference libraries ... not something I'd expect Santa to provide!

6. What type of music do you like? traditional music, mostly

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? I haven't ...I normally buy the ones I know about. But if my Santa is a musician I'd love to hear their music.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Again, none really.

9. What is your t-shirt size? XXL

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I don't collect anything.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Theatre, drama, history, travelling.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Real gold or silver only, I'm afraid - got far too much costume jewellery.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. My favourite SS packages include lots of little things that tell me about where they live.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. Not mad keen on chocolates or sweets, although I have a husband who will help to eat them if they're included. Dark chocolate is preferred to milk chocolate. Love coffee - Peets is a particular favourite brand.

I'm actually very easily pleased, whatever the above suggests. Books of local folk tales or folklore, or recipes, local crafts - all very gratefully received.

Hey, billybob! What kinda stuff do you like? Going by your name, I could get you bluegrass, old timey or trad Southern Appalachian music, but liking any one of those doesn't guarantee liking either of the other two. Is there any particular instrument you like to hear? You don't have to fill out that big ol questionnaire if you don't want to, but give me a hint. Or, I could scare up some rap, or opera, or Lawrence Welk cds...

Notice has been taken, coal is removed from the list (which is just as well, because the coal mine stopped producing years ago and you wouldn't believe the price of the imported stuff) and myself and my fellow elves/elvesses are on the prowl looking for goodies.

Hallo oh Windy One. Himself has been rather preoccupied recently what with Brexit and that hoo ha going on across the Pond; would you believe how much of his work has been affected by both those events? NOW he's waiting to see if it will be safe for him to fly anywhere in the USA without being shot down or deported as an illegal.......

Anyhoo, he has designated his top elves to scurry around madly and put together a positive cornucopia of delights for your Christmas Day pleasure. They have your list and will be putting their little heads together to make sure that you will be happy with the result.

Message from Himself. He's a bit upset at the thought that anyone might think he had a connection to either of those two wallies but he's a very forgiving old guy so won't just leave coal - this time.

Elves are now on overtime to fill this order so it should be ready for delivery in time for the festivities.
