O dark despair! Whatever shall I do?
It's been five weeks since I have heard from you,
O Santa dear, yet still no postman's left
A present in my box. My soul, bereft,
Waits through the bitter winter nights in vain,
Yet with bright hope to hear from you again.
Have you, perhaps, seen what may make you shiver:
Your gift, once more returning to the giver?

Hi Megan,

I'm just too good to you............we have never spoken in person, but you have replied to some threads I've started - and been very kind.
"Terifing weans" is not a bad thing in moderation - I been doing that to mine for years and they still come back for more, even though they are mostly growed up.

Well it looks as if we might have some snow tomorrow, will need to get the sleigh in good working order, feed the reindeer, get out the working suit, - you know what its like - a santas work is never done.

Don't stay too long in the darkened room - have a tot and have one for me too,

take care Megan,

Santa x

PS Glad to know your a hippy
PPS what do you call a cold, talkative, dim, new age person,











a nippy, lippy, dippy, hippy

I thank you for your note, SS,
And now am filled with happiness
At hearing that you've not forgotten
Me (but that P.O. is rotten!).
Now I even feel like rhyming
Once again, now that the timing
Of your gift's receipt is near.
'Twill truly be a great new year!

But, speaking of the rhyming word,
Some of your rhymes do sound absurd
To my Northeastern US ear.
I'm guessing you're not from 'round here!
If "soon" and "down" are rhymes to you,
Perhaps you are a Scotsman true.
"Along" and "boomerang", however...
Could they rhyme someplace else? Ever?

Hmmmm...

Passed off the package to the Newknighted Snakes Postal Service this morning -- figured it would be a lot more efficient than hitching up the bats and cats to the sleigh and trying to fly out of snowless New England to sunny Californi-o.

There -- that's even a couple more HINTS!!!

Packed off in a Priority box, so it should be arriving on your doorstep within a few days.

Blowing my cover is okay -- I've IDed myself on and in the package, too.

Dear No-Longer-Secret-Santa "my guru always said",

Thank you so much for an overflowing parcel. The three postal cards which preceeded it made for cheery memory-laden appetizers. Inside the package I found a t-shirt with a depiction of the famous chalk horse, a canvas bag with (Mud)cats playing across the front, to an inspirational tile, a beautiful greenman bookmark and charming book of poetry, my first ever advent calendar card with the 12 days of Christmas, and 2 luscious dark chocolate bars; all were made even more delightful by the music in which I wallowed. Your own 'A Toe in the Water' cd is lovely, and the 'Song and Ale' six cds from 2004/2005 are full of treasures. I've already having a second listen! Thank you, thank you!

I'm listening to S&A 2004 disc #3 as I write, and laughed aloud to hear the first strains of Jan Harmon's "Seafarer's Song" sung well by Jan Barnes. I wonder where she learned it? Jan (Harmon) lived near me in Maine for years before her death. She was a member of the folk chorus with whom I have sung for years. We've sung many of her songs and loved them, yet I didn't realize her songs would be known so far from home.

I'll be learning new songs from all these cds for months to come. Thank you for your thoughtful and generous gifts. I hope we'll have an occasion to meet in the future. For now I'll be content to meet you through song as your cd self sings "The Rollicking Boys Around Tandragee."

Yours in song,

a grateful maeve

When is an "s" not an "essss"? When it's combined with an "h" -- then it's a "sh", as in SharonA! Ho ho ho, hish hish hish... thank goodnesssss I can sssstop doing thisssss hisssssing now!

Maggie, I'm so glad to hear that the package arrived at your door safely. Sounds like the tiles are intact (*whew!* I was worried about that!).

Actually, I live 'way south and east of Williamsport (home of the Little League World Series), in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia PA -- not too far from Max! I'm about 10 miles away from the Moravian Tile Works, a working-history museum and one of the creations of Henry Chapman Mercer in Doylestown PA, so when you said that you wanted tiles from your Secret Santa, I knew where I had to go! Mercer was a pioneer in reinforced-concrete architecture, but he was also rather eccentric -- his museum and mansion look like castles, with glazed tiles of many colors and designs set into the concrete inside and out. If you ever have a chance to come back to Pennsylvania, these places are must-see's for a tile fan like yourself.

For the rest of Mudcat, who didn't receive all those brochures and postcards about Mercer's legacy (no, I don't work for the Chamber of Commerce, I just like to send lots of area info -- just ask Jaze, Robin2 and Gloredhel!), here are a couple of websites to show everyone what we're talking about:

Short bio of Mercer, his museum, mansion, and tile works
Pix and info -- museum and mansion
Pix and info -- Moravian Tile Works
Pic of SRS's larger tile (they say the translation is: "Music gladdens the home")

The smaller tile is the one where I had to superglue things together: the initials SRS (yes, they do sell individual letters and numbers) onto a rectangular glazed tile (one of many pieces used to make custom mosaic designs). The significance of the glazed letter tiles is that Mercer inlaid such letters throughout his three buildings (for example, here on Rollo's Stairs, in honor of his dog).

Hope you'll enjoy the CDs. Nothing professionally produced there, just some home-brewed stuff to give you an idea of what I write and a few of the cover songs I like to sing.

Have fun with all that stuff, and have a wonderful new year!!

Sharon

Well, Sharon, I had to go pick up my daughter at work, then I adjourned to the living room couch for some light reading. Too bad about the behavior of those pit bulls on the front page of your paper--bad owners are the problem with dogs like that. And I didn't realize the extent of museums and historic sites and reproductions in that part of PA--my father's family had a cottage (used to be an old inn around 1800) in Salladasburg, north of Williamsport, and I've wandered around up there, but not so much further east and north. I've been at the Jersey border right at the Water Gap, but those postcards and brochures show that there is a lot more going on in the area. Pretty interesting. Did you say you got your start working at the local Chamber of Commerce? ;-D

The tiles are fabulous--what's the story with the SRS one? That will go on my desk next to the computer. Do you get to custom make them at the tile works, or do they have random initials handy? The larger one can go in my tile collection in the kitchen--they've come from all over, so anything new fits right in. (And how ironic--earlier this afternoon I stopped by Home Depot to pick up a scraper and blades to get the adhesive off of my front hall floor so I can put down--what else--tile. This is part of a remodel job that I started over four years ago. . .)

I have a growing collection of Mudcat performances, and these of yours will go in that special case in my office. I'll be listening to these CDs after the kids either 1) go to bed (ha!--they're teenagers on holiday!) or 2) go to their dad's for the weekend. Too much interruption and background noise with video games and tv on right now.

This is a great selection of stuff--and another demonstration of just how much you can cram into one of those mailer envelopes if you have a good shoehorn and a plan to pack it tightly. And lots of strong tape. Anthony, my mail carrier appeared to stagger under the weight of it this afternoon. . .

Thanks again, and there will probably be more feedback as I read more and listen to the contents!

Another successful Secret Santa circuit has been completed!

Dear Elffish Pressently, abject apologies! I was so sure that I'd posted a couple of days before Christmas that I'd received a 'pre-Christmas parcel' of songs, but it seems my post has been lost in the ether. Perhaps I had been under the influence at that time *grin*

So sorry to hear that you have been delayed by this lapse, but obviously the tentative New Years gig is good news! If only I knew where Murray's was, and if I weren't away in Essex at a Barn Dance that night I would certainly come along to hear you & the Band. Is there a Flautist in it too perhaps?

I have indeed started listening to the pre-Christmas tape, what a variety of styles there are. I got half-way through the compilation tape while I was doing pre-Christmas stuff in the kitchen and it certainly set the scene, thank you!

The Postman has not yet come all the way up the drive with the 'big box' but I'm sure this will happen soon. There was a false alarm today, but it turned out to be an indicator unit for my car to replace one I broke on the way to a Mummers Play on Boxing Day. Not nearly as exciting as a present from my own Dear Secret Santa. I shall continue to be good and am sending positive thoughts to You for 2007!

Dear Ed,

As I'd told you earlier, I can't leave the UK until you've reported to the thread that you've recieved and opened The Big Box and listened to the contents of the "pre-present" that you've been passed. This means I've had to spend Christmas in the UK, whereas I'd planned to be back to the Pole for the Holidays at Elf Central enjoying a break before reassignment. I've stayed in far worse places and drank worse stuff than the Harvey's Sussex Bitter at Murray's, but I'd planned to be long gone by now.

I had also told of Being able to sit in with the house band at Murray's even after my bandmates had left, and how young Nottalpha Sprite was getting a bit clingy and possessive about wanting me to settle down locally. Well, that all came to a head when I was reluctantly dragged over to an all too traditional family Christmas dinner at her parents residence. If being a foreigner, travelling man and sometime musician was not bad enough, being an elf turned him completely hostile and absolutely livid with rage. After repeated barely audible racist under-the-breath mutterings about "not wanting any 'Spelves' raised in the family" and how "Elfish should leave the building and return to sender", I took it as a much needed opportunity to storm out in the middle of the meal (an extra large Cornish Hen that amply served five) and end things right there before fisticuffs broke out. Surrey bout, that!

Unfortunately, word has gotten through to me by way of Nottalpha's sister Nearleah that she has only to be given the word and she'd be packed in an hour and ready to run away with me. "Miss Surrey" may love company, but I don't think I do any longer. I'm also tenatively booked for a gig for New Year's Eve at Murray's.

I hope you have The Merriest Season Ever and can acknowledge reciept of your cornucopeia of goodies as soon as possible so I can sneak out of here and get back home in "one piece on earth".

Your troubled Scout-Elf,
Elfish Pressently
(relocated, but still here)

Dear Bill t'bodger,

Don't you worry, never fear.
I'm slow: your pressie will appear.
Perhaps a New Year or three kings
Will bring your gift. How bells will ring!

Intentions were to mail it early.
My malady made straight paths curly.
I have a box full of good cheer
Yet the best part did not get here;

Some music sweet to grace your home,
To cheer your heart when you do roam,
Has still to jump inside your box.
I promise I will not send rocks

Or coal to dirty up that treasure
Packed securely, in good measure.
Your box is here. I do regret
I've made you wait. Yet you will get it!

Your deeply apologetic but determined Santa, whose lobster elves and moose team are standing by to depart on their dangerous mission to deliver your precious package the moment the music arrives. ;)

That did occur also, and there are a couple I've tried on the tongue ("Vectis" comes to mind). But by sound alone there isn't a lot to work with. Maybe my SS has a lisp and achieves a quality of Ssss sound that wouldn't occur to me?

SRS, has it occurred to you that all those SSSS's might signify a sound (like the one some reptiles make) rather than letters in a name? It has to me, but I can't think of a member named Ol' Rattler, Bluebelly or Dragonsbreath...

And no, it isn't me; bears never hiss. Just trying to help.

Last post been and gone for me too, Jennie. And I haven't ever got last year's present yet.
Still that's not the fault of this year's Santa. The mail's back next week. Maybe then. My Santa sounds nice though busy. Have a wonderful Christmas Santa.
Cheers, Joy

I forgot that you and Micca are probably more of the Solstice persuasion than Christmas revelers. If that is the case, I hereby remove the spell from the package that prevents it from being opened until Christmas.

Happy Winter Solstice!

sitting in the dark on the shortest day of the year,

your secret santa
