Hello Forkers December

Posted: 25/12/2016 at 08:58

T'bird - crack on with the Quo . When my girls come home, I'm going to torment them with Bob Dylan's  # Must be Santa - the worst thing you'll ever hear, yet also the best!  


A bit of Greg Lake/ELP in remembrance too, and of course, Carols from King's - just to even things up 


I realise I've made a rod for my own back with the 'pomes' but hey, why not, if it gives everyone a laugh!


I just hope not too many people post on last year's though, as it'll keep bumping it up and it'll get very confusing. Lots of the people mentioned on it aren't here any more either - for different reasons.  One in particular, so I don't really like looking at it. 


Gene Kelly on the telly....smashing!

Morning all/ afties Pat - lovely pic! Happy Christmas to you all  


Hang on to your hat Lesley - I find a stapler works well....


Hope everyone has a wonderful day - remember to eat and drink plenty -  to keep up your strength for all that seed sowing and cutting taking of course, no other reason...

Cheers people  


Not sure what happened to the spaces between each verse - they were there when I pressed submit 


I actually started off with :


# Well the weather outside is s****y


but I've thought of a little ditty...


Didn't want to lower the tone though 


As the greatest comedian of all  (Dave Allen) used to say :Goodnight - and may your God go with you

I've just done a new one lily....


Not quite the size of last year's but I felt I should live up to my ' laureate crown' from last year  


Enjoy your break Joe. The sprouts are already cooking.....


lily - it'll still be here somewhere. If you do a search for 'Twas the night before Christmas, you should find it

I can't match last year's offering, so this'll have to do  


With apologies to Sammy Cahn   


To the tune of  # Let it Snow!


# Oh the weather outside is frightful


But the Forum is so delightful


So if you want things to grow


Have a go! Have a go! Have a go!


If your artichokes look like onions


And your plums have got bumps like bunions


When you can't find the RHS book


Take a look! Take a look! Take a look!


When we finally say goodnight


And we look back at what we've grown


Well  it gives us all such delight


Even though we might curse and moan


Well the sprouts are already simm'ring


And the tree is all decked with trimming  (sorry  )


But if you've nowhere to go


Turn on the Forum - you'll Ho Ho Ho!


'Cos if your roses are drowned in greenfly


And your hellebores look far too dry


If you can't find the cure


Check the Forum - be reassured


Now we can finally say goodnight


And look back at the year we've had


We've had lots of fun and delight


So life really can't be too bad


Oh the weather outside is frightful


And the Forum is so delightful


But though we want plants to grow


Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all

Get them planted Kath.They'll dry out otherwise. They'll be fine, although they may flower a bit later 


That reminds me - I still have some to plant as well! 

Your worst Christmas present!

GD   


As long as you can get around Johnny, it's fine! 


Hope you and yours have a lovely Christmas and New Year. 


Just wild, wet and cold here with sleet and hail thrown in for variation.  


A couple of short spells when it went off, but they didn't last long. Was about five degrees when I went out this afternoon, but it'll be much lower now. 

Your worst Christmas present!

I've never had a bad present - not that I can remember anyway. We're not big on the 'three ring circus' that Christmas has become anyway. The girls always had a lovely time when they were little, and didn't have loads of money spent on them. They remember the little things they did and the family traditions we have, far more than the presents.


Christmas has become quite obscene now, and desperately far removed from what it should be about, in my opinion. We're not religious, so their birthdays are far more important anyway.
