Be on the lookout ...... your box of elf goodies is on its way to you!!!
This elf puts her Christmas tree up very early -- right after Thanksgiving. So, I wanted to make sure if you do the same, you would have presents to put under the tree ASAP! Or, you may decide not to wait for Christmas, and open them early to get you in the holiday spirit -- completely your choice of course!!!
If anything amongst your gifts doesn't fit, or is just way off the mark, please let me know, and we can arrange an exchange. I want to make sure you are happy with all of your holiday surprises!
I had never gotten a negative rating at all for any post up until a post on this thread a few days back reminding folks of the purpose of the SS thread. Most people appreciated that, but a few didn't. Since then, I have been getting several negatives scattered among various posts on many threads, sometimes on posts where I have trouble seeing how it could be negative. Considering the timing of when this started, I smile and forget it. Everyone has a right to express their opinion, after all, and that's a quiet and much more appropriate way than some other methods.
The same thing happened to me dressagetraks! So bizarre!
T'was the night before Christmas,
And all through the barn,
All the horses were sleeping,
With an occasional yawn,
All the stockings were hung,
On the stall doors with care,
Stockings belonging to geldings and the stud and the mare,
And all of the Warmbloods were tucked in for a winter's nap,
(We warmblood take a lot of naps!)
Their day was all finished and their gifts they did wrap,
When out in the barnyard there arose such a clatter,
The horses arose to see what was the matter,
Santa and Rudolph had come with 8 tiny reindeer,
Which looked just like warmbloods until they came near,
Santa handed out carrots, and apples and hay,
And then all the warmbloods, they started to neigh,
A Chirstmas carol of joy for everyone to hear,
And then Santa sat down and had cookies and bier,
He stuffed all the stockings with gifts for secret santa elves,
Who'd sent presents to Eleanor, and wrapped gifts themselves,
We'd done all our shopping, we'd sent all our gifts,
To Eleanor for Christmas, we'd finished out lists,
And we heard Santa say as he tightened his sleigh with a wrench,
Merry Christmas to Cothers and make sure you don't grinch!
Thanks, Elf! I'm cozied up with a cat to the computer right now. Not as cold as the north pole here, but it's definitely getting chillier. If I could change ONE thing about my dream farm, it would be the climate, moving the same land about 400 miles south.
Okay, this is a perfectly legit nice post, so why are there 3 thumbs down for it.
Me thinks this thumbs up and thumbs down is getting a bit weird!.
I am going on strike and not using it anymore. Is there a way to stop notifications. Sorry to side track but to thumbs down a post on here is well, dumb!
And you were right Politics Was totally out of place on here!
I hope my giftee will be happy--I just splurged a bit over the budget I said I would do. Oops! It's all good, though, originally my budget was made when my job prospects were slim, but I'm gainfully employed, so I wanted to splurge and make my giftee's day.
I went a bit over too. My giftee really needs something, and I found one! I hope she's happy with it. I love being able to find something someone really needs and doesn't have!
I am a stealth Elf since I am virtually impaired. There is shipping and wrapping and really poor poetry headed for this thread and my gif tee!
Oh I am so excited! FUN!
Only on COTH is it said
Rhymes can be typed on a thread
We shop till we drop
Exhausted we flop
And just how can you type on something so narrow as a thread? A tiny piece of string, of course silk is even thinner, just never know.

HOLY COW ELF! TarheelJD, you are AMAZING! I haven't OPENED anything yet (um...that may be happening tonight...not going to lie), but after a truly terrible week, I came home to a HUGE box waiting for me! I dug in and pulled everything out, wrapped so beautifully! I had to sit on the stoop and cry for a second that someone could take so much time and do things so beautifully! After a year of being forgotten and shuffled behind getting everything done for everyone else, that, even BEFORE opening anything, was one of the best gifts one could get the eve of thanksgiving. THANK YOU! (expect a private message once I get things actually opened) Thank you for making my day, week and month, and for your gorgeous wrapping skills! (Which I truly wish I had!)
I have not made an alter, just not time with work and everything that has been going on. I have gotten a few things for my person and hope that I can get the time to get it wraped and sent before long.
My life motto now is "You can't fix stupid!"
Are you going to cowboy up, or lie there and bleed
