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


Jeniwren Report 5 Dec 2009 23:12

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.

Don't worry RMS (good to see you back) we'll find a comfy seat to observe the sporting shenanigans together. With all these different strips, they'll have to wear skull and crossbones armbands when they play as a team!

I think the throne was rescued from the other thread, and there's always the ones Aunty made out of Lego a while back. Here, I'll just plumb up the cushions for you. We'd better warn MO in case she thnks we are intruders and shoots us with her darts - lol

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!!!


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 6 Dec 2009 00:01

Now you are on guard duty, I also shall potter off to bed. Mind you don't choke on the cherry stones. And if you swallow one, you'll end up with a tree growing in your tummy, or was that pips and apple trees? lol!


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.


AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 01:00

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.
It is p***ing down here, so might just stay in bed for another hour.

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

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

I have just found a piece of archival material. Must have been posted about the time the first Thread Killers United was whooshed. It seems to come from my Application to Join Thread.

Goodness knows how it survived. System didn't like it at all when I wanted to open it but it did open and I've saved it as a word document.
I'll put it on later, if you are all good. i could do with a giggle.


LaGooner Report 6 Dec 2009 09:13

Morning all, Welcome Rocky Mountain Shy glad you found us. Departed early last night as I am stilll not well. Anybody want my cough I am sick of it !!!! Awake again 3 this morning and have not been back to sleep.
The Anthem is wonderful Aunty, when I get my voice back properly I will be singing it at the top of my lungs.


AuntySherlock Report 6 Dec 2009 09:24

What remedies have you tried LG. Nope boxes of chocolates won't work. Have you tried sweating the germs out. Hot lemon drink and two asprin and go to bed with lots of blankets, and whatever else keeps you warm.


Mazfromnorf Report 6 Dec 2009 09:27

have some brandy sauce lol that will help i did get carried away lol with the brandy so dont let kenny near it we will all be flambe `d lol


LaGooner Report 6 Dec 2009 09:28

I have tried just about every remedy old and new. I will cart myself of to the Docs if I don't feel any better by tomorrow. The only trouble is I am allergic to most antibiotics so that does not help if this is some kind of infection. I have no cold or fever only a severe cough and a loss of voice.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 6 Dec 2009 09:54

Self appointed expert on chesty coughs here...

Lots of fluid
Steam inhalation - loosens up the gunk
Over the counter decongestion tablets - have you spoken to your local pharmacist?
Try to prop yourself up in bed at night, although you will probably end up sliding down!

But as you have had no improvement for at least a week, it probably would be best to see the GP. You don't want to pass anything on to Ava or your daughter who has her hands full anyway.
