Dear mmMekitty and DB - plus anyone else around~
No, I had not realized it was a 5 year anniversary of starting Croix Parler (which is of course the pun cross talk:). No, Croix does not mean 'cross' as used in my name, though many people think it does, it was a slang nickname from my youth.
I started the thread becuse I was always chasing after people that had no home thread themselves and found it very difficult to catch up, so I though I should have a place where people could catch up wiht me if they wanted to.
It's worked well, and has had all sorts of subjects here, some serious, some fun. Which reminds me, I thought a Paeroa was some sort of nearly extinct NZ ground parrot, you live and learn I guess. I have also just learned the inebriated kiwis can swim - amazing. Maybe they just walk along the bottom with those long beaks sticking above the water.
I presume a Lagerphone is something to do with an alcoholic beverage? Considering my musical ability I think I'd better confine my efforts to the triangle (provided you give me the nod when to go "ting" of course)
I'll regretfully have to forgo that hug DB, with you being so attractive and slim and all, it would be a sure recipe for trouble. Mrs C is liable to take drastic action. Still with me being mistaken for Arnie so often this does tend to happen rather a lot:)
Well, as they say in the cartoons
"That's all folks!"
