    Merry Christmas ALL! Yo, ho, ho and many a cask of Old Jamaica. And that go even for the Ozzers, poor benighted upside-down creatures that they be.
    Down here in Davy Jones's Locker we've broached a hogshead or three and be gettin ready to splice the piratical mainbrace with a vengeance. Mother Carey be red in the face with roastin her chickens. Anne Bonney have lit the port and starboard lanterns on her boosoms and be chasing Cap'n Kidd with a sprig of seaweed, mistletoe bein in somewhat short supply down here at a hundred fathom. I never realised how much fun a sea chest could be till that girl come here.
    Blackbeard be hanging the baubles in his whiskers and Capn' Flint be sticking sprigs of holly on all the cannon balls. Talking of which, Bosun Hollywagger have decorated his belaying pin with tinsel (no, no, he conducts with it) and handed out the sheet music for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Barrels. We're singin all the old favourites this year, such as Away in a Galleon and Ding Dong Merrily on Deck.
    Ol Davy hisself do sends his Festive Greetings to Dr CO and his commiserations to the poor lady wot managed ter think yon Stopwatch was a larf. No Christmas cards please but donations to Pirates' Widows and Orphans much appreciated. Round robins not replied to as we all expects to be <strike>incomunicardo</strike> pist until Epiphany.

  7. Walking around my local pub with a sprig of mistletoe threaded through my belt buckle isn't going down too well at all....

    Same to you and all yours Yasimum.
    As you know I'm not much of a cricket enthusiast (no need for rainmaking ceremonies here at the moment, though it's not actually weeing down at the moment and I've just put up the solar lights as an act of faith).
    You're probably right about Boxing Day but if you put an unhatched chicken on the barbie you might end up with a face full of scrambled egg.

    I seem to have lost my enthusiasm for the game this year, I must confess but Pom baiting has become force of habit now and it is the fault of all of you on here for pulling my leg mercilessly all these years!

    Thanks for the support FP. I have asked Santa for a GSOH for Christmas.
    I have returned to UK for Christmas. So far:
    • Car starter motor broken. New one required.
    • (new) Central Heating not working. Call outs so far cost &pound;200
    • Burst water pipes. Cost to 'blank off' &pound;100
    • Washing machine frozen, pipes burst. New one &pound;350
    Have a good Christmas, whatever that might mean to you. Tell me when it's all over
  12. I'll give him that - dark humour is his speciality....
    Have a good one, Stoppers!
