Sorry no Tiggers, copyright regulations. You may however have a Tiger on a red and white (omg what am I saying) background with a nutter and a shield with a cannon but not the word Arsenal.

And YG can have a fireman's helmet instead of a cannon
And DET can have a bottle of vino instead of a cannon
And Maz can have a lily pad or a frog instead of a cannon
And Pauline can have an artists easel instead of a cannon
And me well I will have a brain instead of a cannon, because I'm going to need one after making this suggestion.

And all the very welcome visitors, well when we have sussed out your personalities then you too may have a flag emblem. Right now you get to have ....Visitor, instead of a cannon.

RMS Whoo hooo!! Hi There. Have you been tunnelling under the ocean???


RockyMountainShy Report 5 Dec 2009 21:34

You betta, but I kept making waves and the Philippians didn't like it, so I stopped.

Then I came back here but you all had d-i-s-a-p-p-e-r-e-d.

So I was left a -- l -- l alone WAAAHHH

Hi everyone, anything interesting happened?
back from Wetherby races now, backed 5 horses, 2 won but I think the others are still running.

Edit - like the flag, you could have red/white/black


AuntySherlock Report 5 Dec 2009 21:44

So it wasn't another kidnapping??

There, there, don't fret. We will probably always be around here, somewhere. An 'orrible personnage caused our lovely thread to be zapped. We are good little nutters and just can't work out why.

Waiting for the nice, clever people at GR to tell us what happened so we are able to go wreak havoc on the baddies thread.

LG, DET, Maz , YG and Pauline should be around somewhere. All have been celebrating one thing or another including new grandbabies, soccer wins, new frogs, internet mysteries, and whereabouts of firemen, and how to squiggle.

Welcome back!!

Would you soccer fiends converse quietly over in the padded cell.

Waves Aussie Rules flag.

Wouldn't be so bad if you would learn to play properly. All that hugging and kissing and cartwheels. Ughhhhh!!

DET ......LOL Yes I'll take the blame ...Again ..!

Just to let you all know I support *Plymouth Argyle* Footie .

My uncle played for them ...god bless him up there !!

Bye bye I need to find a thread for coach/chair potatoes

Nite all, think all the fresh air today has had an effect on me, having trouble staying awake. See you tomorrow, sweet dreams.

Haha Rita, just seen your post, it's a pity those horses didn't run faster when they were racing.

Oh goodnight you lot. I'm grappling with two sides of a family tree which will just not entwine in the middle. Think I might have to marry off two individuals from both sides just so there is a connection.

I told OH this was my day off and I was going to spend it relaxing on the computer. I have a little pile of fresh cherries, yes we have our cherries at Christmas time. Sorry I had a little pile of fresh cherries, wonder where they went so quickly.

Noticed we have another cat person in our midst. You lot should have a cat gathering and all take your feline friends (note I did not use the other version of the word) along and see what happens.

Here Spot, spot, look, cats, go boy!!! Whoo hooo. No, Spot put it down it will scratch your nose!!!


RockyMountainShy Report 6 Dec 2009 00:22


Ok, I'm soo clever that I make my own, Yes thank you for the OOHH's and AHHH's

Have the printer, bought the blank labels, found some pictures, I only have 18 cards to mail & I have about ten zillions labels. They are very pretty though. Although for some reason some only have the picture and not my address, which means I have to write it and that is what I am trying to avoid during in the first place!

I'm sure its your fault somehow,


AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 00:58

How very astute of you to recognise that we are capable of wreaking havoc far across the oceans in whatever direction.

You are using sticky labels for your Christmas Cards. Goodness me, another fine tradition gone; up the creek, tch, tch!!

Lesson number 75 from Aunty!! By the time you have finished mucking around with a printer, sticky labels, pictures and other assorted paraphenalia, you could have addressed each envelope by hand, stuck the stamp on, walked to the post office in the snow and posted the cards.

However, I do have a handy little self inking stamp with my name and address which I stamp on the back of each envelope for my return address.

Cherry stone for sticking in the ears and trees growing out of head. Apple pips and orange/lemon seeds for growing in the tummy.

Morning Nutters everywhere, hope you are all well.

AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 08:08

Morning Maz and all.

Yes I most certainly do have the anthem. It was one of those bits I actually kept from the Thread Killers Reincarnated Thread. There are some other bits and pieces, including YG's Trrrrrrraiiiiiinnnnnnn Booking.

I have been having an absolutely (very bad words) of a day. Doing my family history. I have had to unravel heaps. Which reminds me I've put a request for help on the tips board, had no responses, so I did it myself. Must go delete it.

My biggest mystery, and sorry for boring you with such garbage, I was given some info from other trees. Now I always check out my gee it's wonderful to get stuff you don't have to find for yourself, stuff.

I had looked at it and bits just didn't make sense, but I left it. Went back today and cross referenced it against the NSW BDM web site. Person who was born in Yorkshire UK and all his children were born in Australia, but he mysteriously went back to Paddington UK to die. Actually died in Paddington NSW Aust.

Person who was born in Paddington UK, was actually born in Paddington NSW and he didn't die in Canterbury New Zealand, he actually died in Canterbury NSW, Aust.

Right now I'm a gibbering idiot with about 15 rellies less in my tree than what I had about 9.00 am this morning. Too flaming picky for my own good am I.

By the way Spot the striped sabretooth tiger is starting to walk, very carefully, on all four paws. Very pleased about that. Still don't know what happened but he tells me it wasn't through trying to catch Glenn and eat another leg.

And for goodness sake send those cyber pets down to the family planning clinic. We can do without additional critters running around the place, squawking to be fed.

I think you are right. We might need an annex. Move the visitors into the CPs compound, tee hee that'll test their survival skills, and put the CPs in the new annex.

Anthem coming up, soon as I catch my breath and stop grinding my teeth.

Put your essence in the bin!!! We need the proper stuff for the festive season. There are enough boakins around to drive us home. Anyway the catapult is much quicker and safer. Providing the windows are open!! PS can you imagine being driven home by a boakin.


Mazfromnorf Report 6 Dec 2009 08:19

they could make the runners on a good sleigh lol for a lift esence gone real brandy in


AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 08:34

Whoo hoo, just think of all the interesting foods which require brandy. Oh hooo yum!! yumm!!!


AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 08:40

Here is the Anthem. It is sung to the tune of "We Are The Champions" by Queen. Well, come on, what else would we choose.

All together, Ahem, one two three.......


The Nut Lodge Virtual Anthem

Lovely Nut Lodge
Where we belong,
The catapult’s waiting
The elastic is strong.

Mushroom risotto
A pot of mole stew
A few low flying omelettes
Pink custard served too

Your thread won’t escape us – you’ll see
One visit and your posts are history
We are from Nut Lodge
Nutters from Nut Lodge
Virtually useless
We’re nutty as we chooses – it’s our way.

Cyber Pets with us
Not behaving again
They’re virtual so nobody else can see them or their offspring
So we take the blame

Our superior leader
Rules over the group
Throne and crown for the taking - oh damn
Another failed coup

Your thread won’t escape us – you’ll see
One visit and posts are history
We are from Nut Lodge
Nutters from Nut Lodge
Virtually useless
We’re nutty as we chooses – it’s our way


Just keep repeating chorus until someone throws a boot at you
