Sinsull,

I had a brainwave about hand crocheting something and I've nearly finished it. Not often that I get these impulses and follow them through, but for a Secret Santee it is worth making the effort.

Problem is: I like it so much I think I'll have to make one for me too.

Well well well, [that's three holes in the ground!!] The piskies n' elves n' things, have sorta got their act together and they summoned up a reindeer, and slung your prezzy on the sleigh. They pointed out San Diego on the map, and noted the close proximity of an air base, to where you live. So that's it, only about 5 0r 6 thousand miles to go now.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

Now Giok, don't get impatient. Your prezzie is ready (and it's a good 'un) but you need to receive a few more hints before the prezzie gets mailed. Since the mail service from here at the North Pole to Scotland is very reliable, I'm in no hurry to send it just yet. But keep an eye out for other surprises from the elves all over the world.

Another hard hint: CCDEG ~~ There is absolutely no way a gent from Scotland knows that one! So I'll continue a little ~~ GAGGG. Want the words?

Be sure to send me pictures of yourself and your prezzies for a web page summary. Last year we posted them before Christmas because many folks opened theirs beforehand. There shouldn't be too much of a problem eliminating guesses since not everyone sends a picture. But would everyone rather we wait, or what?

Also, anyone who wants to post a hint on a webpage, I still have some room at ivillage. Just PM me.

Oh well, not like its perishable or nothing like that. Do they have chimbleys in Lunnon? And wot's this I hear about your roomie has 2 or 3 Secret Santas? Don't seem right fair, it don't.

Across the cold pre-dawn plains of the Serengeti the faint clip-clop of hooves is heard, a strange rickety sledge pulled by 8 ill matched Wildebeeste becomes visible in the faint light, a short tound red-clad figure cracks his whip and yells,
" On Hash slinger, P***taker, Flanders and Swann
On Red-eye, and Rudolf and sh**head and Don
take off now to Sorcha's in far off Wyoming
We'll stop off at Yellowstone,then we'll be homing "
The 8 Wildebeeste gather their muscles and like a Marine Corps Harrier
smoothly rise up into the sky and turn their backs to the rising dawn and head West......Sorcha's SS is on his/her way........

Four days from the UK to me! So am I the first santee to get my gifts? The package arrived on Saturday and I pulled it out of the mailbox today.

I think at least one of the gifts might get opened before Christmas because the wonderful letter enclosed told me what it was, and I can't wait to hear it. (I believe it's the item shaped like a CD.) The customs sticker gives a slight hint about what the other items might be. I may give into temptation on the rest - I've never had much success with behaving myself when it comes to presents.

I don't think I knew my Secret Santa was even involved in this!

Thanks, in advance of opening, and more later.

I've had a few problems getting the elves to stop going sailing and get back to work(they said the cruiser needed more testing;-)) )

Then we had to get the parcel dried out and onto one of those big birds in the sky.

It finally went off this afternoon so hopefully it should get to you in time for Crimble.

Enjoy it when it gets there - I suggest opening at least the one that feels like a cassette!!!!!

I got mine! I got mine! The postman delivered it to my old address despite a "Change of Address" card dutifully filed. But a kind neighbor called and I went and retrieved it. Seven packages and a card in one big bag. I opened the card. Firecat is my SS! But being a disgustingly good little girl, I won't open any until Christmas....unless of course I have a bad day!

A package full of PURPLE is flying its way across the Atlantic (or Pacific) depending on which way the USPS decides to send it. The reindeer refuse to work pre-Christmas for less than double time and a half. Damn unions! (InoBu will get me for that but he has to figure out who I am).
Be a good little girl and don't open the presents until 12/25/02!

I got mine today,,,,from Yorkshire. Man alive I damn near cried and I posted on another thread for the SS to FESS UP!! I got this beautiful HANDMADE Aran sweater along with my Mudcat badge (knows Bill well).....Also enclosed was a window/bumper sticker pertaining to Dog Rescue....So Ol' Spaw went back and researched the threads until I found those EXACT words that are on the sticker........The post was by Mrs. Cobble and I'm betting dollars to donuts she is my SS.

What a beautiful sweater and a touching gift..Handmade means something extra special to me.......Am I right? Is it you Mrs. C?????

Well, well, well, Ms Firecat. I see that you have been a good girl - sending your Santee's present so early. Well, just for you, I will tell you that your prezzie has been loaded up on the reindeer sleigh and now I'm negotiating with the AUOTFCOEARXD (Amalgamated Union of the Federated Coalition of Elves & Reindeer, Xmas Division) to start their journey.

They claim that they deserve alcoholic content in their pre-flying warm-up drinks, but I keep reminding them that as responsible providers of a public service they are not allowed to drink any alcohol otherwise they will lose their jobs. There are plenty of other flying reindeer out there lining up for jobs. Aren't there??

Anyway, don't camp out near the mail box too soon. It will all depend on how convincing and persuasive I can be.

I did put my name on the return address, since the location would give it away anyway (hint: it's not Iceland or Argentina).

Present opened, listened to, enjoyed thoroughly. Amos, you managed to find two complete CD's of songs that I have never heard before (not that that's difficult to do), but like a lot. Oh, wait, actually I'd heard one of the ones on the shanty CD before-- The Apprentice Boy. The notes say he learned it from Roisin White, well, that's who I heard sing it. Very cool. Thanks.

Oh, and in case the rest of you are wondering, I got a CD of shanties and sea songs sung by Richard Adrianowicz, and a CD of lots of different music performed by a trio called Touchwood. And I'm very happy with them. Once again, thank you Amos!

Yes, that green sticker is a real kill-joy, but not being honest in what you write could cause delays if the kill-joy customs people decide to look inside, so it's not really worth the risk.

So anyone receiving a parcel with a green sticker - don't read it, no matter how tempted you are.

And so, I just sit here in Bear country wonderin' if those elves got lost in the smoke from the bush fires. Knew I shoulda sprung for the higher priced delivery service. Guess I shoulda been suspicious when the elf service was called "Sidney, Austria, Or Bust!" But I attributed it to them being too short to spell long words.

I wonder, though--is MMario just naturally a patient fellow, or particularly non-curious? Or did he forget that he has a Secret Santa? I have enjoyed reading the occasional pleas from participants for clues or signs of life from their SS's. Barely a peep from Leo.

Okay.....Your prezzie is on it's way from pretty close by, so it should arrive soon. In another thread you stated you thought you knew who I was but I will just let you guess.

I also mentioned that what I really wanted to get you became a bit of a problem and I will not be able to get it til late Spring or early Summer so you will have a special summer Christmas present from me as well. You'll just have to wait. Hope you like what you're getting now and I equally hope you enjoy your Christmas in the Summer present.

Oooooo, I love spreading holidays out. I have a friend who celebrates birthdays and half birthdays 6 months later, so she has two BDs a year. I always celebrate a birthday for at least a month. And Tom and I have two anniversaries -- one in June and one in December. Champagne all 'round! Never pass up an opportunity to party!

Really looking forward to this installment's arrival!

SS mine, you've identified yourself in/on the package, haven't you?!?

Lots of herring in my old stomping grounds--herring wine snacks and roll mops are a favorite of my family, tho we now live far from there. There, it's Copper River salmon, here it's barbecue. Gone are the Hambo and Schottische and here is the boot-scootin' two-step.

No, I didn't identify myself but you think you have it figured out and this first present should help ID me along with the hints I gave you.

I am not a native southerner as you surmised nor do I live in the south now, but my ties there are pretty strong, especially for a few places.

Hello, Santa

I have had lots more trouble getting on line - I couldn't get on at all last night & had so much trouble tonight that I sent a rather incoherent message to me techo friend who has just answered.

And my brain is so tired the clues just look like words! Tho seeing bears & eagles sounds lovely. Once I was up the coast (around Helen's way) & saw a pair of sea eagles - they just glided over the trees & all the smaller birds took off to protect their nests. Lots of loud "piss off, go away" noises & the eagles just glided on, totally ignoring the noise. In the middle of all the bear pictures on my wall is a drawing of an eagle soaring across a sun with rays that fill the page - this was the logo of the meditation retreats that took place by the lake where I saw the eagles.

Evey day there is a parcel card in my mail box I go "goodie, it my pressie" - the most recent disappointment was a friend's new CD, so it wasn't really a disappointment.

sandra (eagerly awaiting a parcel from bear & eagle country)

Bat Santa -- You must have mixed up a post of mine with someone elses. I never thought you were from the South or a native Southerner.

But if you are who I think you are, we have consecutive birthdays and were born in the same year. (You're a day older than me.)

I'm totally confused after receiving a package yesterday. (I've been a little under the weather and haven't had a chance to "properly analyze" things yet.)

I received a VCR tape which had so many hints that I don't know which ones to believe. It was fun watching the tape though, and I definitely want to travel to New England and see everything. (I'm a little nutty too.) There were so many things I liked that it must have just been coincindence.

It looked like Jeri from NH, then Bat Goddess with all the whales, then I was sure it was MMario with all the relatives and Cape Cod, but then only Amergin would be that devious to give so many clues. I guess I'll just have to wait for more clues.

SS, were you in any of the clips?

Well Linn..........The hints were pretty obscure I thought but you're a pretty good sleuth now ain'tcha'? I think you had said I was "south" which I thought I'd try to play on a bit to throw you off!

Enjoy.......and remember, I owe you one in June or so.

Wow! That was quick! It was mailed on Monday from a funky little post office that would normally slow it down just by its location.

Use your discretion on opening--so many have decided that the Solstice is the day to celebrate--so don't let the mailing label cramp your style.

There's a P.S.: no music was enclosed at this time, but something will be forthcoming, once the materials are in place. A CD or cassette of one dearly departed singing some of his favorites.

Open Mike--roll mops are longish strips of herring wrapped several times around a pickle and stabbed through with a toothpick to keep them in place. We find them in with the pickled herring in my neck of the woods. The manufacturer is in the eastern portions of Canada.

Well, it's taken me a long while to decide just what to get for you, but I finally wrapped and boxed some stuff that is starting on its way to you today. As soon as I finish posting this, I'm off to harness the reindeer (start the car) and take to the air (drive to the post office). If the package does not reach you by the 24th, please accept my apologies for my tardiness, and please be assured that your pressie box IS on its way to you in the snail mail. Hope you like styrofoam peanuts! (Hey, they can always be strung them together as a garland for your Christmas tree!!)

But I've been sending, and will continue to send, my best thoughts for your healing, strength and recovery. Wishing you well,

Glad it got there before Christmas! It wasn't what I was planning on sending, but I couldn't find one of those - at least not in time. Oh yeah - if you haven't opened it yet, it's also full of styrofoam peanuts. I found out from the postal clerk that you can eat the straighter ones - they're made of corn starch or something. They taste sort of like stale pork rinds without that pork rind taste.

To my unknown Santa. Package 2 arrived the weekend before Christmas. I haven't had MudCat access until today to let you know. Thank-you so very much.

My New Year's gift to myself was reading Night Watch all in one sitting. It really interfered with my snow shovelling. So now instead of 22 inches to finish, I have another 3 & more tomorrow! Why didn't I tell you I wanted a plowing service for Christmas?

The CD is a hoot! Is a non-Roman Catholic allowed to laugh?

I can tell your a fellow New York state resident. Might be MMario.

You mentioned a 3rd package. I had the USPS hold my mail. Did they not find it when I picked up the rest of it, or is it still on the way?

To my Secret Santa Blackcatter.

Got your prezzies yesterday.   Got a lovely celtic CD holder and some handmade cards/notelets, together with two CDs.   Very very happy and it gave me something to enjoy on my first week back in work!!!

Thank you very much Blackcatter.   Great prezzies. glad you did not include tarantulas!!!

My other half has actually heard of Mrs Miller although I hadn't. However, I had the joy of her rendition of the Girl from Ipanema played on Radio 2 this morning so can't wait to play the CD.

Many thanks
