Grandma got run over by a reindeer!

Not really, I just had to play with the new post icons!

You'll see the choices whenever you start a new topic, or post a regular reply (as opposed to using the quick reply box). The third row of icons are seasonal ones which will be changed throughout the year. It's winter here in the northern hemisphere, so we have some snowy icons now, but since it's sunny down under we have the hot sun as well; plus we have some holiday icons at the moment like the cute reindeer here.

Have fun using them!

Re: Grandma got run over by a reindeer!

LOL I really was expecting a funny here
I've chosen a summer Christmas/New Year Holiday even though it's we're having a nice thunder storm here right now, it's not cold
And doesnt the rain freshen the air and the garden?

Re: Grandma got run over by a reindeer!

I Knew There was Something!!!

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe

She'd been drinkin' too much egg nog,
And we'd begged her not to go.
But she'd left her medication,
So she stumbled out the door into the snow

When they found her Christmas mornin',
At the scene of the attack.
There were hoof prints on her forehead,
And incriminatin' Claus marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walkin' home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe

Oh Dear! There's lots more but I'm a bit worried about copyrights.
Funny though!

It looked like it could use a bit of decorating.

Sweet Lady, nothing is more fun than a weyr full of drunken harpers on a hatching day (except, maybe, two or more weyrs full).

Re: Grandma got run over by a reindeer!

Hi Everyone,
Cheryl, I really like this site! It helps a lot to know it's available since we aren't able to do the other Anne site at the moment. Hope you, hubby and the little people are ready for Christmas holidays.

Would just like to say - yes, be careful about copyright infringement.... we know how unpopular that is with Ms. Anne! It so happens that I have heard the guy who wrote that song do it live on the radio a few years back. His name is Dr. Elmo Shropshier, I believe. He's a banjo player - as if you couldn't tell, by those lyrics! He and my hubby have known each other over several years, now.... He's a funny guy - a veterinarian by profession! Bet that's more information than you thought you'd find out about a goofy song, eh? Happy, happy Christmas, one and all!

Take care,
CrochetLady

G'day CrochetLady, and welcome to my humble abode on the net. Well, here and Ralan's Webstravaganza. And my email provider.

But I love to hang around here anyway.

I hope that you'll have fun with us, and that you'll spend time on the trivia contests (hint hint) too.

ciao!

Hiya Crochet Lady - nice to see you around these parts.

AMCF should be working fine, they were only offline through the recent mess quite briefly, when they did a forum upgrade I think.
