Hooray!! Another postcard & from Biloxi Bay, hmmmm.... Have completely given up with the Faithful Old Atlas at this stage, it seems to be no help whatsoever! However, the clues are mounting up & my little grey cells are electrocuting themselves with pondering overload!! I have already made several guesses as to the identity of my own Dear Secret Santa, the last one has been lodged with my Bank as proof positive that I actually know nothing at all!!!

I am extremely concerned that my own Dear Secret Santa's wonderful Assistant is calling him or herself 'Evil'. This is a worrying trend. Certainly, Secretarys and Administrators are major Cogs in the Machine, but Santa has a magical power and I believe that she or he KNOWS just how GOOD I have been, and there are lovely pressies under my homegrown tree to prove it *grin* Only one more day.....

A Pox on the Postal System...Carol should have gotten at least box #2 by now.

Never fear..I signed onto Drinkon.com and order her up a bottle of Champagne. Sine they are in the UK, it should get there before New Year's for heaven's sake.

I was trying to figure out how to send a bottle when it finally ocurred to me..why not just BUY one IN the UK. Duh. So I did.

I have a BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL Christmas box under my tree! Thank yew, thank yew, Santa!! I feel terribly spoiled, so many beautifully wrapped gifts inside such a special box! I wanted to open them for late Solstice, but my daughter said I should wait for Christmas. Oh...I love this. The postcards are gorgeous, too. ANd,I don't have a clue...the only two 'catters I know of in VA don't match up with the name on the package, of course, someone could be being very Secetive with me. All shall be revealed, I hope, when I open the envelope wmarked wait until opening all other packages!

THANKS SO MUCH, SANTA!!!

Here's a question - why is it that it takes 4 days to send a package from Florida to California and 3 weeks to send one from Florida to Ireland?   It's about the same distance, and I'm even paying MORE.

What the hell is wrong with all this?

something wonderful just happened!

i went out the front door to get my cat (deli) and there was a parcel in the letter box

it was from my secret santa (and helpers)

i opened the cardboard box, inside was a lovely card - embroidered with a blonde angel in a purple dress) and a beautiful purple box (how did they know i like purple?)as i took things out, little stars, coloured paper and paper snowflakes came out.

and a cassette of beautiful christmas classical music, a tiny pudding, candy sticks, and a mini christmas cake - everything individually wrapped, but best of all it included a beautiful purple african caftan that i saw at the towersey festival, but couldnt afford to buy. i wanted that so much! someone there must have known i wanted it, and got it for me!

secret santa, this is one of the best presents i have ever received - so kind and thoughtful - THANK you, you have made my day, my week and my year. and i have some beautiful tiny paper snowqflakes on the floor - they will stay there for me to smile at!!

I think i know who you are santa - one of three people - thank you, thank you, thank you!

Such wonderful presents. I hope you know you are responsible for me not getting anything done on Christmas morning! Wondering around with a tomato in one hand and a lettuce in the other, I was. An Amos CD and a Kendall one! Both of them presenting songs just the way I like them sung. And a lovely book of pictures of the area we plan to travel through in a few months time. Oh! and gourmet jelly beans too! Yum! Thank you. Thank you my Dear Secret Santa! Cheers, Joy

A wondrous book - an original - words & music of some songs by Frank Krumit - Wonderful - I started a thread on him, having been made aware of his name by a friend who will get to see the book!
A book of humourous tales by somebody called 'Kendall'... hmmmmm...
A 1901 book on Wireless Telegraphy, including explanations of Coherers & Syntonic Circuits! - WOW!
A pack of cards - all different backs, but all Jokers.... hmmm.....
Some weird pens!
A box of hankies - no, wait - table napkins!
A Clown figure!
Some chockies - yum!
A huge magnet with a nice quote about Fools & Wise men - which looks remarkably like a quote from The Fooles Troupe Website!
A bottle of Real Vermont Maple Syrup - we only get Camp brand imitation stuff imported here :-)
A small Pillow - size suitable for clown above!
A Reindeer antlers hat! - worn all Xmas Day!
One Bluebird of Happiness - Now that I've finally got the litle bugger on a string, it will be kept well away from all my future Birthday Cakes!

And a beautiful card with a picture of a lighthouse!

All from Mary! SINSULL! - Rhymes with Tinsel!

I have happily discovered that my Secret Santa this year was Alison. I wasn't sure from the writing on the package, and actually hadn't searched too hard, but the information was in the package. Lots of goodies, and my kids helped with the unwrapping. Music from Alison from a session and instructions for learning the bodhran (and a note telling me that if I don't have a bodhran I can practice with tupperware and a wooden spoon!) Lots of views of Australia in a date book that is almost too gorgeous to write in. There's a great printed linen cloth that is the sort that can either be a big dish cloth or a wall-hanging. This Aboriginal Australia hanging will be in globe trotting good company on my laundry room walls with the Statue of Liberty and a linen print depicting a ceiling in Britain's Kensington Palace. Finally, I think the cold can holder is far more refined than most that you'll find in the US, with sports teams, crude sayings, or beer brands on them! It was a lot of fun to open, and it was a good choice of stuff that made the long trip easily.

Thank you, Alison!

Well, seeing as not all of my Pressies have arrived at Chez Carol & Cllr...Perhaps Cllr should keep my identity secret a while longer..at least until Twelfth Night...hehe. Keep Champagne Carol on pins and needles.

Fine by me, I'm not done playing yet! After all, I haven't yet sent any photos from my brief career as a semi-professional wrestler! (for real)

Cllr...if you didn't see earlier..I've ordered up a Bottle of Champagne for her from Drinkon.com and it should arrive in the next couple of days. it's intended for your New years Eve celebrations. I've more little pressies to send as well. I'll probably post them on Tuesday. I do hope the other Pressies all arrive in a heap tomorrow.

Well, my SS is still a mystery- I love the Brassneck cd (more! more!), and I'm so enjoying the "Folklore of Leicestershire and Rutland"- it's exactly the sort of read I enjoy on cold winter evenings.

And the chocolate.... dear Santa, I love you forever!

Hmmm, wait a minute while I do a Search on Brassneck ok, that narrows it down a bit- but not enough to let me know if it was you... or you...

Many thanks, all the same!

The knit ornaments are poerfect for my tree and went straight from the box to the tree on Christmas morning. We will mull wine tommorrow night when my brother arrives and now have no excuse for confusing our glasses.The Scarves are wonderful and in perfect shades to go with things I already have. Of course chocolate needs no qualifiers, but this was especially yummy.

I haven't opened the idenifying CD, I'll send a PM first and see if I guessed right....

The Hannah's butter tablets are devine; I'm hiding them from my teens and rationing them out to myself. And the oarcakes - they're great!

Firecat, you're fantastic ! A box of butterscotch, a most treasured Mudcat Badge, a recipe laden tea towel, two delightful, beautifully illustrated cookery tomes (I'll be trying out one recipe today) and another book of aged photographs of your extended neighborhood. Oddly enough, that publisher has its regional US office located in nearby Portsmouth, and on twice Linn (Bat Goddess) has come quite close to working there.

All in all, this was a fine lot of presents, the enjoyment of which will endure for many years to come.

I should really like to thank you in person, Katy, but it may be a while ere we enjoy the correct confluence of time and money to travel across the pond. In the meanwhile, you can send a picture to Pene Azul so that I can put a face with all your thoughtful generosity.

My own Dear Secret Santa's Fabulous Assistant, I have to confess that I'm pretty sure that the game is up! Don't ask me how as it all clicked into place a few days ago. The Locator was no use at all, the postcards were completely crazy, but your previous hints and the Old Atlas had narrowed down the search. Having got the vague location I could cross out those who were playing whose profiles showed them elsewhere.

You and my Own Dear Secret Santa were still on the list at that point as I had no clues as to your whereabouts. My guess was a shot in the dark, but having been on Chat last night I am soooooo sure know, you really were Very Helpful *smile*

Thankyou So Much for the FABULOUS beaded earrings (sooooo craftily clever), they're beautiful!!! Have just got back from a 2 day Santa Run so haven't had a chance to listen to the CD yet, but it looks extremely interesting! Any the books are just my style & even better, I've never heard of them. Wonderful pressies, Thanks!!!

Believe me, you guys have blown my mind & it was SO MUCH FUN! Thankyou both & have a wonderful Christmas & New Year! (Was just going to send this when the Cat went down!!! - have sent you a pm from the Annexe)

I gather from that, she liked them... especially the fairy dust.

Thank you so much for making a little girl shut the hell up for 10 minutes!!!!

Your letter was wonderful too, such a beautiful picture it painted that I want to visit!

The mermaid made it one piece, as did the giant pencil. We've not made the muffins yet, that's being saved for New Years....

I'm waiting for my gift also and not giving up hope!
I am happy my secret Santee liked her gifts, but since no mention of my name came up I will remain secret Santa!
Hope everyone had a great Christmas!
Peace, Rustic

Try again, Sinsull - I did supply the CD, but your Santa is someone else - I wouldn't dare give a clue.

Hope you like the songs, anyway!!

Hehe! Glad you like the CD - the real one will be tons better! (Properly recorded, not in the back room of a pub...)

OK - I'm the handsome looking punkoid with a beard... before what's left of my hair got slightly singed in the tavern!
