Okay, now that we all have our Santees, here's a thread for all of us to play Santa and log back in anonymously and give our Santees some mysterious clues as to who their Santa might be.......Or if you are sneaky enough you can reamain known and give some real weird hints.......like I might say that MY Santee is fairly well known, was recruited by a very well known member and is interested in things down under.......but doesn't actually live in Oz. But I could go anonymous and use the Santee's name and say something different. Your choice.....Have FUN!!!

Not to be confused with Giok's Secret Santa...

I have read your hints. But tell me, what do you consider "really good tea"? Do you drink tea often? Do you enjoy tea-drinking paraphernalia? Are you a tea-totaler? ;-)

Ah, my lovely Santa --

I drink tea every day, and even as we type. By "good tea" I mean tea that tastes good hot, and makes me go "mmmmmmmm" when I sip it. I'm certainly not an expert on teas, but yes, I do tote tea (making me a tea-totaler), just in case folks I visit don't keep it on hand (barbarians). I'm all in favor of paraphernalia.

I don't know much about you (though you know less about me, hahahaha), so give me some hints darlin'! Otherwise you may end up with a big ol' sack of coal. And I assume that wouldn't exactly be what you most want for Christmas. As soon as hints are in, Hezekiah and Ananais will be sent out searching. H and A are, of course, elves on staff here at the North Pole. Their mission in life is to find you a present, and you certainly wouldn't want to deny them the pleasure of fulfilling their mission in life, now would you? So please, make my little elves happy and help 'em along a bit.

Eagerly awaiting hints,
Santa Claus

Sugar? Sometimes, but sometimes I drink it "straight" and sometimes I put in a bit of honey. Loose, bagged, whatever. If you are a tea drinker, I'll like what you like. If you're not a tea drinker, I'll still like whatever you come up with. I'm easy. You aren't bound by the tea thing, either. I'd be just as happy with anything -- long's it's not pink. **G** ~;o)

So you like bears, do you? It is bear-ly within my scope to obtain bearish items, but I don't want to be overbearing.

I know where there's a stuffed bear, but, standing on its hind feet, the thing is pretty tall and I don't think the postal services would be up for bearing it that far South. Oh, you said "small is beautiful". Well, bear up, I'll think of something bearly recognizable.

Can't tease you very long, as your Santa surprise has to be in the mail by Nov. 6. Better slog out to the sled and get beary busy.

Other than that you're a Canuck and probably a boy Cat, I have no info on you at all. I don't even know how to peruse posts you may have made, since I've never come across one (that I could "click" on).

Now, I can be pretty imaginative, but it would help to know if you're closer to 8 or 80 and a bit more about you.

No rush. As Kat reminds us, it's not even Halloween yet. But can you post some kind of hint(s) here one of these weeks?

Let's see, you said kilogram--does that mean you're not US? Or are you just trying to throw me off the scent? And what's with the "A" at the bottom of the post? Force of habit, possibly, or another ploy? Hmmmm....perhaps such guesses are better left until after I finish that history paper.

Sea-green blue and "winter" ...and NOT pastels (duly noted!)

Idiot's guides ...well Cat could not have chosen more of an idiot Santa to guide you! Ethnomusicology (note...consult dictionary) and cooking. Well as the owner of 135 cookbooks I may be able to trump you there!

would certainly give houseroom to anything (CD) by a Mudcatter ...are you sure you know what you're letting yourself in for? Even from this Mudcatter maybe?!!!

a teashirt for bed... ...(strokes chin thoughtfully!)

do you collect anything? ...I could certainly supply the cookbooks and dust!


pottery, embroidery, crochet, gardening, incredibly bad instrument playing ...well we have different hobbies but not a bad list to stimulate the nerve cells!

silver ...but no rings or bracelets or southerly pierced things (makes interesting mental note!)

something that reflects the Santa and well as the Santee, something that is local to Santa, or even handmade ...what luck to have such an "open" and appreciative Santee and I think I could oblige on any or even all of these fronts with a bit of imagination!

not smellies or calendars ...duly noted!

Dear Secret Santa:

Of course I believe in Christmas... I also believe in Ramadan. I mean, there is no deny these observations exist, after all. And I also have no moral objections to their existance.

I just don't celebrate them, personally. I celebrate the Winter Solstice... hurrah for the brand new light, and all that.

As for believing in Santa, well, I have a book right here on my desk entitled Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men: The Origins and Evolution of Saint Nicholas, Spanning 50,000 Years. With a track record like that, I'd say Santa is more believable than 99.9999995% of the ordinary humans I know. ;-)

Santa always makes a list
Then he checks it twice.
Not that the ol' bloke's gone Type-A
He just wants to be precise.
YOUR Santa thought to do the same
An' keep the holiday spirit true
So by checking with some UK elves
Santa's got the goods on YOU!
I've been told you're keen and lots of fun
A regular wunnerful gal
An' when you're on the piss (and must take one as well)
You should probably take 'long a pal.
Then you'll have someone to shove out in front
When arse over teakettle you spin
So that with any luck, you'll land on THEM
An' not risk your sweet neck again.
So keep Santa's advice close to your heart
True gems like that never fail.
Christmas is coming, your prezzie is too,
But please watch your step, not the mail.

Dear Custom Santa - yes, last years list applies.

What does my ren costume look like? what colour? uhmmm - brown, blue,green,black,red,tan,purple,murrey depending on the day. I'm a peasant - nothing matches...baggy pants and a peasant shirt - unless its a peasant shirt and tights.

"Owain" - MMy alter-ego (the apprentice for 35 years - he who carries a tune in a bucket - barely; the pre-minstrel Owain Cramp) tends to wear the same - but he carries a wooden bucket which MMario does not.

and honest - those "naughty" days and the songs I was singing - really! it was my job!

Rats-don't do this too often.

Age-note reference to Albatross; also Divers and Owls. Quoth the Raven: "nevermore."

Gender-I'd bet Cat knows best.

Favorite Colour-scruffy. Is that light scruffy or dark scruffy? Sounds like a sagey-sorta colour.

Authors/books-Ah ha!! Celtic mythology is it? And would that be Keltic or Seltic? Settle for Dine' if you're wise.

Books desired-what the heck kind of answer is "see above"-clearly a bureaucrat at heart.

T-shirt size-only XL? Have you noticed that male Mudcatters prefer smaller t-shirts than females?

Collectables-how about post cards?

Hobbies-sounds like a reasonable collection. Ever try prickly-pear or dandilion wine? If not, don't.

Jewelery-yeah, ok, spoilsport.

Other stuff-whatever.

But they have no clue what you might want. Please, for their sanity's sake, give them a few clues as to what you might like!

That was supposed to say "cookie" and not "cook". It has been a while since I tried this cookie-less thread-posting lark.

So, thanks to hey-diddle-diddle, Ms CatsPhiddle, the Fiery-cat from the 'Cat has a Secret Santa. A very studious SS who has studied FC's postings including peeking at her pix (after some scathingly brilliant lateral thinking on the photos page) and examining familial and social relationships within our 'Cat community. Even compared this year's and last year's SS hints for good measure.
[Let me know if last year's hints are out of date (these young-un's grow up so fast these days!)]   

So now the challenge is to put together an appropriately interesting, hopefully surprising package and give it to the elves to deliver. Maybe over land, maybe over sea, maybe through the air. Maybe from nearby, maybe from afar.

And do I infer that my SS is from the North American continent, due to the reference to Halloween, which passes in Oz with hardly a murmur - except as an excuse for re-decorating shop windows? Or is this a herring of a different colour?

OK, OK...you figured out that I don't want an autographed picture of the Bush family. But you see, the problem is that as soon as I give a hint, I'll immediately think, "Well, I really don't like that as much as I like those 25 other things..." I know, that doesn't help. What I'd REALLY like is a turntable that works, and a CD burner...but I'm NOT asking for those. I do have a CD player, and in addition to the kind of music they play on Folkscene.com I also like jazz (smooth, not raucous), klezmer, "world" (like the Putumayo series), fingerstyle guitar, and anything with vocal harmonies, from shape notes to shanties to swing. I even like Gregorian chants (I know, they don't have harmonies). I like songbooks, music books, photography books, travel books, natural history books, history books, just about any books except for Danielle Steele novels, old maps, games, carved wood, interesting music-makers (in Disneyland I found a wooden frog from Vietnam that makes a very froglike sound when you rub it's serrated back with a stick) and "scientific" toys like kaleidoscopes and prisms and such. Edibles are good, though they have a tendency to disappear...and I don't eat any parts of anything that used to walk. Or fruitcake. And, as I said, something that is unique to your area would be preferable....unless you live in Las Vegas, I suppose. Now maybe you can be creative and surprise me! And Thank you, very much indeed.

Aloha,
Mark

So I don't feel quite so much like The Little Prince until the flowers bloom again...

I hope this doesn't make me sound pitiful, but it's been gray, and rainy and cold here for the last couple of days, and will be so for a couple of days more, according to the weather personaliities on the news, and I guess it's just seeping into my pores....

As for peppers, this year I had great success with cayennes, jalapenos, and some smaller peppers of the chili type that were labeled only "from Thailand." And those, the locals here would note, were righteous-hot. For some reason, habeneros do not do well in my garden. Just as well, although they do make a good paint stripper.

To my SS on the other side of the pond,

I want you to know that I will appreciate whatever you choose - the more you like it, and the more that it says about you, the better. The hint about purple is aimed at making it easier if you have to choose between different colours. But I'm sure you know that already. I'm sure that you are just teasing.

That isn't to deny the fact that I do have a purple addiction, though. At the supermarket one day I saw a little girl excitedly telling her mother about a purple water bottle, or something equally mundane, that she had found on the shelves. I wanted to quietly warn the mother that purple-addiction doesn't get milder over time, but in fact gets more acute. I catch myself sometimes getting just as excited over little, silly things which I don't need, and have no earthly use for, that just happen to be a lovely shade of purple.

Neither a varlet nor a harlot, thank you very much, Amos, nor a Santa dreary, one hopes. Mudlark, thou hast need of patience. Just because Walmart has had their Christmas decorations up for a month doesn't mean your SS is a dud if you haven't received a gift (or hint) yet. Worldwide web means your SS could be anywhere in the world, and it might take a while to get back to cyberspace.

Also, being a first time SS, your SS still learning the etiquette and expectations of this august position.

Since discovering that Mudlark is the person to whom gifts are to be given, your SS has been researching the elusive Mudlark, to better prepare for what's to come. The first part is the reading of all of Mudlark's posts to discover her how better to be her Santa - a labor worthy of Hercules! That woman posts a lot more frequently than her SS. What has been discoverd by this dedicated research? (1)She likes garden fresh cucumbers. Unfortunately, it's not cucumber season in her SS's garden. (2)She would rather sit on her porch and sing cowboy songs than attend a concert by a professional folksinger (an oxymoron if I ever heard one). Sounds reasonable to me. (3)Her real age, which, contrary to her SS hint is at least a decade away from crone-ism (and within 15 years of her SS's age, one way or the other.)

So have no fear; your SS is busy preparing more than coal for your stocking.

Dear SS...Thank you for YOUR reassurance, and be assured in like kind that you are way ahead of me as I've yet to figure out how to address my Santee anonymously--I only hope he has more patience than I. As for musical tastes, I hasten to add this cunumdrum...I live in the country, I live in the west, but country/western is not what I love best. And while I might be disappointed to find coal in my stocking I wouldn't take amiss a few logs of seasoned oak...nights are getting a tad chilly.

Sign me another first time SS....

Wot ho, RangerSteve...were you getting worried? Beginning to think your Secret Santa had gone south for the winter, or some other direction? Have no fear, I'm on the job. In fact, I've already stuffed a couple of presents for you into my sack just today, found in the middle of nowhere, on the way to somewhere, a happy bit of serendipity.

C'mon, I wanna play. Leap right in to the merriment. I know it's only Hallowe'en . . . and there's no snow yet for reindeer tracks. But I need to be reassured or I'll have to write to the paper. Please, kind newspaperman, is there a Secret Santa?

Oh, dear, I've been away from Mudcat for a few days and missed my SS's note. Sorry, Santa! Please don't turn my present into coal!!

...or would that be a coal-black cat, singing in the alleyway? (I have a cat that I say is black, just for the sake of convenience, but he's actually black-brown-gray – and sometimes mahogany red or a dusky purple depending on the lighting!) (He prefers to "sing" in the hallway, all through the night long when I'm trying to sleep!)

A big mouse? Is this a clue???

Hmmm... my Santa said (s)he was at work... at 2:30 in the morning, Mudcat time (US Eastern Standard Time)... so either (s)he works a graveyard shift in the US or has a day job across the pond... but which pond???? Oooh, mysteries are so... so... mysterious!

Ho-ho-ho-hello again Ms Firecat. Yesterday the elves found a lovely gift for you, which in some way matches one of the other two small gifts already in the sack with your name on it.

The elves were very very excited at finding this item because, even though it in no way corresponds to your hints, it seems to be a perfect match to the impressions that they have gained of you from your postings.

Apart from that, they love it themselves and they know that the very best gifts to give are the ones that they would want to keep for themselves, but know that there is much more to be gained from giving them to someone special.

There is still more to go in the sack before sending it off to you by reindeer-freight, but so far the elves are squabbling among themselves about the best one(s) to send.

When their fighting, and this elvish, high-pitched sqwawking ceases, then we may make some headway, but meanwhile.....

Oh, CatsPHiddle, please wait until after Christmas to post the who-got-who list! There may be some packages that won't arrive until close to the holiday – or even afterward – plus some of us (like me, for instance) wait until Christmas Day to open the pressies and find out who sent them. Please don't spoil the surprise by posting the list too early! Thanks!!

Fibula Mattock, Girl Detective, here!

" Your Secret Santa is a non-penguin and has fewer the six legs (which tends to support someone's observation that your Secret Santa has an oblique sense of humor)."

Hmmm. (Checks down the list below.) American too - only one "u" in "humor" - or is that a trick...
Oblique sense of humour? That's just about anyone on this damn forum!
Not a penguin... but are you bird-related?
Fewer than 6 legs, eh? Hmmm....

You've not been forgotten, sweet sister, and don't forget I have already looked up to find out how good you've been this year. Just because I have a shape doesn't mean I can't do my sums, and it seems to me you have passed with flying colours indeed.

I do hope new (but beautiful!) musical sounds are a source of delight to you, because the elves are insisting on trying out their latest composition -- Symphonium Gallerium, a composition for sixteen sauce pans, one moggie, and two tea kettles. It has a certain...shall I say...flavor to it?

Dear Nathan,

Annanias and Hezekiah are very excited and having lots of fun looking for a present for you. They are seriously considering something to do with this area. Sadly, they missed the Folklore Society Festival on Saturday. They had planned to look for a present there, but alas, circumstances did not permit. Progress has been slow. They are a little cold at the moment, being natives not of the North Pole but of California. They miss the sunny skies and the flowers that bloom until December. But they are coping nicely, and soon will become accustomed to the colder climate. It is so hard recruting people from elsewhere. But it must be done. It's so hard to get good help these days.

Sincerely,
Santa Claus

Well, Mr. Brooks, I thought the whole point was that this was a Secret Santa game, and so I'm upholding my end... Besides, if I give away too many hints, I fear you'll not only guess who I am, but what you'll be getting...

Okay! So, I sent a fast-flying penguin (what do you MEAN penguins don't fly -- that one did after I booted it a good one) to catch the elves, to bring them back so I could stick some bear stories in the cage, but when I did, the bears woke up, then all hell broke loose.

Elves is kinda brickle. We lost one of 'em, but sent t'other one back home to regenerate (good thing about elves -- even if they's broke up considerable, long's they ain't dead, they'll grow back). Got a couple of fresh ones (younger ones that ain't quite so fragile), and tranq'ed the bears enough so's they'll stay out till after you get the whole package (I hope). But, just in case, you might want to have a sharp stick to poke 'em back, if they try to get out when you pull off the wrapper.

You ought to have an interesting Christmas, at least.

Dunno what the neighbours thought with all the singing till all hours! (ps. the bear was appreciated & has gone to a good home with several other bears.)

I can't thank you & the elves enough for all the trouble you are taking.

I've seen this thread going on and on but have not been able to translate or decipher it into anything clearly understandable. I take it to mean that there are those here who would like gifts from certain others here for the up and coming season (xmas) and they want to post hints to those from whom they wish to receive gifts from??? Is that close? Or is it the other way around? There are those here who wish to give gifts to others here and don't want to be known by doing so. Who chooses who to be the giver and/or the givee or receiver of said gifts? Is it mutual attraction, predetermined by numismatic ritual, spinning of a wheel or bottle, divine fate? Can we start over here and have someone post just what this is all about? Lay out the ground rules a little for those of us who are a little slow at this sort of thing. I take it that this has gone on before but I didn't see a link to a past thread to explain any of these questions. Or is it just suppose to be some kind of a big guessing game? Befuddled

Those jalepeno peppers that would make your blood congeal

And thats the only eating …….that can Supercharge Gnus

Yippee!!!! My present arrived from Singapore!!! And it was exactly what I asked for and I am thrilled with it. Loved the stamps, loved the Robot Bug mailer box, wrapped round with official green Inspection Tape!!!, loved the note and most of all, loved the contents. Secret Santa, there is nothing that could have given me a bigger smile. I have shells from Hastings, shells from Spain, from Belize, from Hawaii as well as my own California coast, but none as treasured as these.

I know I should have waited until Christmas, but then, I never do. And besides, one side of the box was crushed a bit and it was necessary to examine contents for damage, right?

I am embarrassed to say that though you have given me such a huge hint, I am still at a loss to know who you are. Please, please put me out of my misery and tell me who was out on the beach picking up shells for me...the ones from the Phillipines are knockouts, and it delights me that the ones from your own local beach are much like common shells I pick up here every time I walk the tideline.

Muddie, dear, you're much too easy to please. The pebbles and shells are just to let you know I haven't forgotten you while my elves search the corners of the earth for your actual present. And it could be that the Singaporean shipment, rather than being a huge hint, is a ruse to keep you from knowing my actual geograpical location. Sometimes locations can be a clue as to Mudcat names, but not always. Keep smiling and keep watching your mailbox.

Thanks for the musical hint Secret Santa. You should be pleased to know that I'm completely CLUELESS! The first time I listened to the song I didn't even think it was in English. After listening to it many times now I can decipher about 3/4 of the words, but really they make almost no sense to me at all! (That last line in the first verse...) Can't you give me more hints? I've narrowed you down to someone in the Western US who likes animals or someone with a British accent who sings Irish songs or someone who likes art and museums...

Bardford, me lad, you'll probably have a hard time guessing my my true identity, but here's a hint or two.

You probably would think I'm beneath you. (And you'd be right.)
But then, in at least one sense, I'm quite a bit ahead of you.
There was a time in my life when I was more like you (at least in one objective way) than I am now.

I have often found myself challenged since joining Mudcat a while back (but I always find some help from the immortals when that happens).
I can't say I can traverse the globe in a single night like my mentor from the North Pole, but I do get around quite a bit.
Mudcatters who were concerned with being dated may have seen more of me last year than they did of most other Mudcatters.

Your prezzie should be on its way sometime this week. I don't think you'll have trouble getting it B4 Christmas.

I loves riddles, I does!
Let's see- beneath me- geographically, I guess.
Ahead of me - vis a vis Greenwich time, methinks.
Like me - hmmmm - charismatic, charming, strong, sensitive, adored by women, children and old people? terrible fiddler, yet delightfully engaging at parties? Comfortable in jeans by the fire, or on the beach in a tux?

I must do some thread sleuthing. Or, I suppose I could just wait. Thanks for the note!

Well, Bardford, you're right on count one, wrong on count two.
And if you think YOU'RE a terrible fiddler, you shoulda heard me when I quit my lessons as a kid!
But as to our similarity/difference, I was thinking of something more concrete. We once shared a sort of 'kinship,' I guess, but now we're neighbors of a sort.
(As for the intangibles, let's see who adores me: women? maybe (but I hope not exclusively). Children? Sometimes. Old people? Usually.
Violin/fiddle afficcionados? See above.
"Charismatic, charming, strong, sensitive..." Do you also love long walks on the beach and hate phony people? LOL!

Okay, my benevolent and generous-with-the-clues Pere/Mere Noel, here's what I did: I took all the clues you've provided and created a FileMaker Pro database. Then I ran those clues through the Mudcat Thread history thesaurus analyzer/algoryhtm generator(its a new thing-I don't think even Max knows about it yet). Then armed with that information, I tapped into the Florida Voter List database random partisan de-registerer which results I then imported into my Itunes program and converted the whole dataset into an mp3 file. I haven't had a chance to listen to the results yet, but I will announce the results on this thread. (Likely around Christmas time.)

This is IT, SS....I demand more clues than these fabulous stamps and great handfulls of coral, shells and what look like inviting bits of Sensen...from Thailand!!!! I am intranced, and intrigued, and now in the process of carefully steaming off all these great stamps that *cover* the envelope, while cudgeling my brain, and pouring over posts, feeling sure that, like beachcombing, the next step will lead me to a significant find. But getting an exotic envelope like this, with the return address simply "Mudcat SS" is totally frustrating!

Good grief, Nathan. You are hilarious. You're getting close on me being either meek or bold and young or old, but I'm not a Ding Dong! Really, I'm not.
Well, it's pretty cold outside here, but there's no snow. I've never lived anywhere where it snowed before, and now I move here, fully expecting snow, but there's no snow. Egad. Will I never get to live with snow? I was so excited about it, too.
Anyway, your gift will probably be mailed tomorrow. Santa is a procrastinator. It's not entirely my fault, though. Hezekiah's wife insisted that he had to stay home to recover from his cold, leaving the already-overworked Ananias to do all the work, thus losing several days' progress. The important thing is that your present will arrive before Christmas. Here's another lyrical clue for you:

Ding dong merrily on high,
The Christmas bells are ringing
Ding dong verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing:
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis!
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis!

It's here! I went to the Post Office and there, waiting for me was a huge cardboard box. I *had* to open it to make sure that everything was okay, because the Oz Quarantine service had placed a sticker on the box saying that they had inspected it. Lots of purple packages, beautifully wrapped!

I am under STRICT instructions not to open it all until Christmas, so I guess I'll have to wait. The truth is, I was kind of hoping it *would* take 3 weeks to arrive because then I would have a better chance of fighting off temptation.

It has Mary S (Internet etiquette prevents me from writing the surname) written on the label and I thought I would have a great deal of trouble figuring out her Mudcat name, but she posted to the Morticia's got troubles thread, mentioned Portland, and signed herself Mary, so I now know --- ta-da!!! --- that Sinsull is my Secret Santa.

So, miracles do happen. It only took 10 days to get here.

She has obviously taken pity on a poor woman whose attitide to presents is not unlike the "seafood diet", i.e. "see food and eat it".

[When my sister and I were kids she could keep her Easter eggs for a whole week just taking one little nibble once a day until they were all gone. Mine were all gone in about 10 minutes.]

She has included a newspaper and a magazine for me to keep busy with while waiting for Christmas Day to roll around. Slowly. And now I get the references to the Union.

There is a very very interesting twist to this story, which I will reveal later, maybe in a week or so.

My Secret Secretive Silent Sneaky Secret Santa's package arrived safe and sound! Checked my post office box after closing time on Saturday to find a yellow card saying that a parcel too big for the box was being held for me, so I couldn't pick it up until yesterday – oh anguish!

The cardboard envelope has several stamps on it that say "Australia" and there's a return address from Oz, so unless my Sneaky Secret Santa is being extremely sneaky by asking one of our Oz 'Catters to send it for him or her, I'd guess that my SS is one of those Oz 'Catters themselves.

Ah, but which one? Sandra in Sydney? Depends on how strictly one defines "Sydney" since that's not what the return address says (even though the mailer's first initial is "S", it may or may not be my SS's first initial! Might be his or her Spouse, or Sister...) (or Seudonym... *G*). Then again, Helen posted as a guest using IE on the same day my SS talked about using IE at work... On the other hand, my SS made a reference earlier to having been off-line for a while, but the posting histories of both Helen and Sandra show no great gap between posting dates at that time (heck, I've been away from the 'Cat more than they have, recently!). Same with alison's posting history. Hmmmm... did I miss any other Australian 'Catters on the SS sign-up list?

Ennnee-wayyy, I opened the envelope so I could look at the cat wrapping paper! My SS is right, there's a multitude of cats there: lots and lots of click-art carefully collected by my SS and printed out on blue paper, tied with a blue ribbon! Big cats, little cats, "hang-in-there" cats, Bill-the-Cat cats, all wonderful cats! :^) :^) :^)

Now comes the hard part: waiting till the 25th to open it! I've been good so far; I put the package into my big knitted Christmas stocking right away so that only the corner of the package peeks out to tempt me. If need be, I'll push it in farther toward the stocking's toe ("out of sight, out of mind", they say...   yeah, right!). Wonder if my SS's true identity will be revealed when I open it?

So thank you, Secret Secretive Silent Sneaky Secret Santa, for sending the pressie and the fun of anticipating Christmas morning! Meow! :^) :^) :^) :^) :^)

OK, kid, here's a bit more help.

Clue words like "beaver," and "geoduck," as well as "emerald and rose (and sunshine)" are geographical clues.

Some of the Mudcatters I've met in person are Mousethief, Amos, Barbara, Art Brooks, Reggie Miles, John P, Charley Noble, and Mudjack. Some of the Mudcatters I've "spent the most time with" on line are Aine, Jerry Rasmussen, Amos, Ferrara, KatLaughing, Marion, MTed, MMario, Sharon A and musicmic.

I've also been nipped at a few times by miscellaneous gargoyles and guests and argued with Doug R on occasion. (Boy, THAT narrows it down, doesn't it!?) :- D

Had I looked around me, beyond the end of my nose, back in the early '70s, I might have ended up pickin' an' grinnin' with Rick F. or Little Hawk (except I don't think LH had been born yet).

And, oh, yes. I learned to ice skate up there in your country.

Don't be too surprised if one of your prezzies ends up coming down your virtual chimney on Christmas day!

Great stamp and I see that I am in very good company. I'm not as old as the painting (luckily) nor as young as the jeep (sadly) but would seriously like to have both of them. I must admit I've never heard of or seen either one of these particular Mudlarks before (the Van Gogh surprised me as I thot I knew his body of work well). But the Austin MudlarkP24 somehow reminds me of a cherished '52 MGTD that was once the love of my life....

You have seriously flummoxed me with all these addresses...silly really, because once you're up there with the flying reindeer and all, surely you can go anywhere.

Hi Mary,

You have to be a little nuts to understand the song. Yes, I do like animals.

Obviously, you need another hint: I can look to the North, South, East, or West and see salt water.

Okay, okay! I'm pretty sure I've got it narrowed down. Well, to about 9 or 10. I'm skating on thin ice, though, so before I dive in and make an announcement that will be on the record for all eternity, I must do some more background work.
I've been cross-referencing threads, indexing clues - picture the garage in "A Beautiful Mind" - the inside of my head feels like that.

I need some sidekicks to do the grunt work, like Matlock had, and Rockford.

This is kinda fun, in a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey-after-riding-a-bus-6-days-to-a-place-you-may-have-been-before-and-having-a-couple-of-scotches kinda way.

Well, Bardford, I may not hate "The Chicken Dance" as much as you do, but it's hardly among my favorites. Nevertheless, I'll probably learn it and add it to my repertoire within the next year or two (if you can play it without an accordion!). Gotta please those early fall audiences, y'know! (But toasting with beer, not scotch!)

Dear Parafantastic Mudlark SS...

"Not Jesse James; try an outlaw who "was born in Indiana.""

How about Earl Butz????

Honestly now, I've spent hours researching Indiana's Infamous and have come up with a list as long as my arm, which includes John Dillinger, Dick Yaeger, Johnny Ringo, the Dangerous Dunn Bros (Del and Bee), 6-shooter Jack and possibly Billy the Kid, among others. After a long look at the Secret Santa signup list, I'm still wandering around in the dark. I am on tenterhooks!

I have a jaws harp, BTW, but I gave up trying to learn it right after I bought it, because it hurt too much. Years later, I found out you're not supposed to hold it in your teeth while flipping the twanger thing. ;-)

Hee Hee. Well, Nathan in Texas is probably a better guess than sandra in sydney, but I wouldn't say you're really getting warm; there are only seven continents, after all. Sorry, I've never heard of the Nathanial Wyatt. Is there a folk song about him? Remember, this is a folk music forum. So to get my clue (assuming it was straight and not designed to confabulate) I would suggest going to the songs rather than state history. [And, incidentally, I've not personally denied being either sandra or nathan in their respective locations, though nathan may, and Sandra has (if that wasn't me trying to muddy the waters) ]

Hoagy Charmichael, eh? Well let's see if there's a clu there.. A Hoagie is a submarine sandwich; the Beatles sang "Yellow Submarine"; yellow is the color of a lemon; there's a Mrs Lemon on the Secret Santa Sign-up list. Whee. This is fun! (and no, I'm neither confirming nor denying being Mrs Lemon either)

Pleased to make your acquaintance, Santa! Finally! I mean sheesh! You dropped more clues than a body could hope for, yet some were vague enough that I became uncertain - started second-guessing myself. But, the truth will out, and I'm danged proud to be your Santee.

Dear Outlaw Santa...

It doesn't seem to me you have confirmed or denied ANYthing so far.... So short of reading thru the entire DT for outlaw songs about a lemon (or was that a sandwich...) I cant see that you are really helping me out much here. Dang, I've always done poorly in guessing games.... On the other hand I am thoroughly enjoying stamps, shells, pebbles and the like while following these crumbs thru the forest....

Kat...LOL. Clue would not be my first choice of parlor games, for obvious reasons. I'm pretty good at Pictionary tho...

Date: 17 Dec 02 - 12:10 PM

Genie - So that's what you're thinkin', eh? :-)

I'm not saying I'm your Santee, but let's assume for argument's sake I had come to the conclusion that I was. Let's also suppose I appropriated some lyrics, from - oh I don't know, David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust album, let's say, in order to support my premise. We can further assume that my extensive research has unearthed not only your true identity, but 'gasp' the fact that you Santa, are, indeed, a woman.

Back to the appropriated lyrics - normally, I'd have no qualms about deconstructing the source material and reconstituting it into something usable for my own nefarious schemes. T'would be a simple thing indeed to blithely replace the gender references in the song from masculine to feminine. But wait! Let us visit the first line of the alleged song - "....lives on his back". Caution flags are raised and warning alarums sounded! (I've always like that spelling of alarums.) For could not offense be taken were that line be changed to "...lives on her back"?

Look at it from my point of view, dear possible Santa. I hardly know you. You may indeed "be outrageous." You may "scream" and you may "bawl", but do you "live on your back"? All the evidence compiled says "no"! To the contrary, all indications point to the truth - that you are generous, kind, tolerant and considerate. Who am I to cast nastertiums upon your character? The spirit of the season and my core value system entwine to forstop me from sullying your good name, and tarnishing my own modest reputation, should it exist, by such a cheap and shoddy maneuver.

Blessings of the season,
You hypothetical Santee

Haha! I guessed! Yes, I really like the CD. For those of you who are interested, it's an artist named Lucinda Sieger. I don't know really how to describe the music, because I don't want to pigeonhole anyone! A couple of the songs put me in mind a little of Joni Mitchell. Pushkin, has she got a website people could go look at?

I am looking forward to playing with those beads over Christmas holiday! I especially like the little blue teardrop-shaped one. :-)
