Thank you for your lovely comments Terra, Scottish, Bloomer and Klahanie :))

Karen - you're an astute lady. Once I was in a play, and the critic wrote (in the local paper) that I was one of the calmest people she'd ever seen on stage! ( I'm certainly not an extrovert, but can get very chatty at social gatherings . . . )

I love your painting and echo the festive sentiments back to you and yours Sheila ... feel free to put any quiz questions on over the festive period!

18 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks all - so glad you realise it's a moon Gill!

You're very kind Summerbree :))

Shirley! You asked for it :)) Another tricky Christmas-themed clue . . .

"Rosebud" (4 or 6 or 8)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Oh Sheila ... what am I looking for then ... 4 or 6 or 8 ? ... lol!

18 Dec, 2013

 

I wish I knew Shirley! (maybe it's from a Carol??)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Citizen Kane ?
Sled (4) sleigh (6) sledge (6) toboggan (8)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Well done Terra, I have just been talking to my daughter on the phone and when I said "Rosebud" she immediately said Citizen Kane! Not a wasted education after all then! Sled, sledge, sledging were her answers. So, Sheila, next question ......

18 Dec, 2013

 

This conversation is very strange! You are all communicating in code! Lol!

18 Dec, 2013

 

Ah ... good afternoon citizen Karen ;o)

Hi Shirley .. thank you .. :o)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Lol Karen ... this is what happens when Sheila asks a quiz question!

18 Dec, 2013

 

Wow Shirley . . . I'm so glad you asked for another question! I'm very grateful to you and your daughter, even though I have no idea why 'Rosebud' refers to Citizen Kane. I'll happily fill in sled, sledge, sledging and await my prize to share with you (and Terra!). x

18 Dec, 2013

 

((( Two sleds appear in Citizen Kane. Rosebud, the sled Kane loves as a child, appears at the beginning, during one of Kane’s happiest moments, and at the end, being burned with the rest of Kane’s possessions after Kane dies.)))

18 Dec, 2013

 

aha...now I understand...sort of..:)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Love the winter scene Sheila......best wishes to you and your family XX

18 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks SO much Janey . . . I hope you can enjoy Christmas just a little this year with your family. xx

18 Dec, 2013

 

Super pic, Sheila. Happy Christmas!

"Rosebud" was Kane's dying word, and everyone tries to find out to whom it refers, imagining it to be, for example, a secret lover. Nobody does discover that, in fact, it is the sled he had as a child. It is very poignant. (Wonderful film - wonderful Orson!)

18 Dec, 2013

 

Thanks very much Susanne, and for the film info!

Thank you Amy - I like your description of my card!

18 Dec, 2013

 

I've never seen citizen Kane. :S

19 Dec, 2013

 

Nor me Karen . . sounds as though we should :)

19 Dec, 2013

 

Exactly...it sounds interesting doesn't it....and I don't think we'll be doing much gardening this side of the New Year going by the weather forecast!

19 Dec, 2013

 

Oh no - I've done a major spoiler!!! (Not entirely - the film is very innovative. Or was ... rather difficult to perceive that now)

19 Dec, 2013

 

oh, don't worry about that Melchi! :))

19 Dec, 2013

 

Shan't! Thanks ;-))

19 Dec, 2013

 

Lovely picture Sheila, hope some of your tranquility rubs off on me. Have a great Christmas:-)

21 Dec, 2013

 

Lol Ba . . thank you. Have a great Christmas!
