Happy Christmas Anthony and Carrie, thanks for everything and roll on 2015. Thoughts are with those like Alec, Gavin and the rest, locked away from their families on this day. We should thank our stars it's not ourselves as who knows who they'll come for next if the notion takes them. Festive greetings to all on TPQ and here's to a great year for us all, the promised land of Saordonia surely awaits!ReplyDelete
A Very Happy Christmas and 2015 to you both!ReplyDelete

Anthony, that's a great photo of you both, just to say I really appreciated the Christmas card, go raibh maith agaibh.ReplyDelete

It's December 25, at 19:40 in San Diego, California. My family is sitting down and watching Frank Patterson "Faith of Our Fathers" I opened the computer, and I got this massage. Merry Christmas Anthony and Carrie, Merry Christmas to you all.ReplyDelete

I could'nt help noticing that the strainer was absent this year? One hopes it was put to a more manifestly appropiate use - like straining the sprouts!
A belated season greetings all the best over the holidays, keep up the good work in the new year. Got a couple of potentially good jobs coming up, so hopefully I will be able to contribute to the quill shortly. We can only be defeated through silence, in this climate it is imperative we keep speaking out.ReplyDelete
we used it for Facebook this year instead. I was covered in tinsel and had that thing stuck on my head!
Happy festive season
My flat this morning:ReplyDelete
The Mrs: Who the f**k are Anthony and Carrie?
The Mrs: They sent me a christmas card
The Mrs: Are they friends of yours?
Me: Not exactly
And so began my admission that I had surreptitiously used her Paypal to donate to the Quill and buy things on Amazon. So that's me in the dog house and no donations for a while, proving that no good deed goes unpunished!
that had me in stitches nothing like getting ambushed by a Christmas card. No good deed goes unpunished indeed but this one did at least make for a funny story. If it wasn’t for the dog house I would be homeless.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas !!! Let's hope 2015 is a good year for us all !!ReplyDelete
Much love to Anthony, Carrie and munchkins !!! Xxx
peter, laughed me ass of there!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas to both of you. And many more.ReplyDelete
