*stuck between several branches and the door frame*
Well the good thing is that there doesn't seem to be any tree sap on me or on this side of the tree. I hate the stuff especially when it takes ages to get it off. How's your side tarc any sap?

Who called me a sap? *spits out needles* I think we should've done it trunk first. OK back up and turn it round. To me a bit, to you, to me, to you. That's better. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. *we wedge it in a corner* It's too tall. *gets saw and cuts top off* There! It looks a bit silly now. Perhaps I should've cut some off the trunk instead. *cuts some off trunk then ties top back on*
The landlord has banned having candles on the tree after last year. Spoilsport. Where's the decorations?

Happy Yuletide!

Well, from what I know candles and sap are a rather combustive combination, so perhaps the sport the landlord spoiled is not - errr, um - hot it would be, but the enjoyment might be, say, limited. Do we put real nuts and other edibles on it this year? I'm just thinking of what the squirrels did last year, sorta ...

Good point. It was ghastly seeing flaming squirrels running about, even though they did look quite festive. How about ribbons, buttons, bits of coloured glass and so on?

*walks in*

Greetings peeps! I hope everybody had a festive Christmas. I love the holiday but, by the time it's over, I feel like I've been pole-axed. I've brought some fixings for sandwiches, if somebody would like to make coffee, tea, or chocolate, we can have liunch.

*looks around and notices a rather sad looking conifer wedged into a corner*

Good grief, where did you get that sad specimen, and why doesn't it have any lights on it?

Well, err, um, ah ... we had, so to speak, a learning curve about how to get a tree through the door sensibly, and how to fit it to the ceiling height sensibly. Now next Christmas, we'll get it right on the first try. Image

Great news everyone. E~S has volunteered to do the tree next year. So kind of you petal. Now wouldn't you like to have a mug of mulled cider? Stick that hot poker in it then put in this little bag of spices from the South. There's ginger and cloves, and a strange one called cinnamon. The lady told me it was a bone of the phoenix bird, very rare. Does five gold pieces sound about right? I had to haggle.

Eh? Oh, I haven't played card games for ages ... and the one I last did would probably mean litle or nothing to you.

Greetings peeps! I hope the new year has started well. We've been having unseasonable warm weather that is raising unrealistic dreams of spring. It's east to forget we still have February to test our resolve.

Out of sheer curiosity, Gando, what was the card game you last played?

Skat, possibly the German card game.

By the way, if we need to dispose of the coniferous tree after removing the decorations, I've heard somewhere that Oliphaunts like snacking on them.

*barges through the door, straight to the fire*

Goodness, it's freezing outside today! Well, this place has changed slightly! Hello all, it's been quite a while I believe!


Belated Happy New Year to all, and I hope you all had wonderful festive seasons

How are we all, since I last wandered in?

Welcome and a similarly pleasant New Year to you as well. You're just in time to sit by the fire, before L_S gets here and hogs the hearth as usual.

Gando, are we to understand that you intend to take the tree down to Harad? Or are you hiding an Oliphaunt in your barn?

*Walks in and sees tarc sitting close to the fire*
The fires all yours it is Summer where I come from nice 30 plus degrees Celsius,
I can’t see Gando going of to Harad can you? He will either get lost or captured*

Does anyone want some ale?

I heard that old Butterbur is thinking about leaving the Prancing Pony to come here, which I of do not believe.

Isn't there an Oliphaunt hiding somewhere east of the Anduin? The one that Sam and Frodo saw ...

Cheers L_S! And good cheer to you all. *takes a gulp of ale*. Good as always, and better than Barliman's Best I'd say. I hope you're wrong L_S, I can't see Mr. Butterbur crouching all the time in here.

That's a very interesting point Gando. Where's the Oliphaunt. Shall we organise an expedition to find it? Maybe not though, not after the last one. It got a bit out of hand I seem to remember. After getting thrown out of all the forums, E~S getting told off for gratuitous doggie roasting, the thread was deleted for bringing CoE into disrepute. Not before I'd copied it all though, if anyone's interested.

Eh wot? That expedition must have been before my time, at least I have no memories of it.

But we might be able to put that coniferous tree to limited use. Except for Oliphaunts, all plant-eaters would only nibble at it and leave at least the trunk and branches. We could make it more obvious by hanging the tree on something up high enough that nothing but an Oliphaunt could reach it. And we should do this in an area that will easily show footprints ...
