      What goes Ho, Ho, Ho, thump?
      Santa laughing his head off!

      What kind of motorbike does Santa ride?
      A Holly Davidson!

      Why does Santa have three gardens?
      So he can 'ho ho ho'!

          Got my Thanksgiving day reservation at a Restaurant. So if I decide not to cook I have back up. Just will miss my yummy Turkey.

              I make a few Christmas cards, but only started to do them, haven't got much time at the moment. Being new to it i have to think a lot about how I'm going to do it. I'v already got the Turkey when it was half price last year. Yes we eat Turkey through the year but Christmas i do all the trimmings. Have elmlea cream with the pudding and fresh cranberry sauce but bought cranberries i tried to grow them but didn't get a lot from one plant.

                  It appears as if you added a GC emoticon called 'chrissy grin' that used a tinypic url for an image that's no longer available - have a look in the 'Christmas smilies' and you'll see they've all gone.

                  Code:
                  they always get written by the end of September.:chrissy grin:

                  @Fat Controller @Marley Farley etc., All the GC Christmas Smilies were tinypic links to images that no longer exist, and there's only just over 3 months before Xmas

                      You know Christmas is on it's way.....


                      When there's more Christmas gear than plants in Garden Centres.


                      When Waitrose's £8 off £40 spend offer, get changed to £8 off £50

                      When there's mince pies in the stores (use by the end of November)

                      When I can't find anywhere to sit down in the lounge as the settee and the chairs all have part-finished Christmas cards on them and my wife is a bit stressed as she wants to get them finished.

                      When I start playing this on my leccy piano, just to wind her up.

                        Do you write them in pencil, Upsydaisy, so that the writing can be rubbed out and sent back to you next Christmas making it a lot cheaper???

                            Ah! I get what you mean now @Scrungee. Yes I did add a grinning Santa to my post come to think of it.


                            Has the mystery of the missing Smilies been solved?

                                Maybe we should do the ultimate reuse rather than recycle and start with teensy cards then every year putting the card and envelope in a slightly larger envelope, after adding your own signature, to send to someone else... follow the snail mail :)

                                And trusting your friends to be mindful about who they forward to. Not the person who never sends out a card but someone who always reciprocates!
