    4. Sticking fillers are the good kind. The ones that don't stick fall out at unpredictable times and can cause embarrassment.

  3. I do hope those 'sticking' fillers for the Prof are not going to be sticking to the Christmas pudding.

  7. How nice to be able to check things off your list. Are your stocking gifts candy? things from the Pound Store? (is that what you call it?) actual little things that you will use and appreciate? I find it difficult to find things for "male" stockings in our family, but it's so easy to pick out things for my daughter. -Jenn

  10. Your sticking filler has even my innocent mind imagining "scenarios" and laughing out loud. My dear John, please do leave off the super glue, won't you.

    A very merry run up to happy days ahead,
    U

    Best Christmas wishes to you and the Prof, and the rest of your dear ones.

  12. Plenty of ticks in Trelawnyd. I think you need special tweezers to remove them. What's a sticking filler? Something like "Polyfilla"?

  13. How did your tasteful gift at work go over? Did she like it? Are you on speaking terms again?

  18. You're a right, jolly, old elf. I quote that directly from the poem.
    Tip of the hat to all for recommending Holiday Affair as a Christmas movie. I acquired more respect and appreciation for Robert Mitchum after watching an interview he did with Dick Cavett maybe from the late 60's or early 70's. He was intelligent, well spoken, smoked unconsciously and wore dark glasses. The movie was new to us and very enjoyable to watch. Sort of mimicked Miracle on 34th Street, another favorite I forgot to mention.

    And I heard John exclaim as he rode out of sight "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"
