Wassail, wassail, all over the town,
Our toast, it is white, and our ale, it is brown,
Our bowl, it is made of the white maple tree,
With a wassailing bowl we'll drink to thee!

And here is to Cherry, and to his right cheek,
Pray God send our master a good piece of beef,
And a good piece of beef, that may we all see,
With a wassailing bowl we'll drink to thee!

And here is to Dobbin, and to his right eye,
Pray God send our master a good Christmas pie,
And a good Christmas pie, that may we all see,
With a wassailing bowl we'll drink to thee!

And here is to Broad May, and to her broad horn,
Pray God send our master a good crop of corn,
And a good crop of corn, that may we all see,
With a wassailing bowl we'll drink to thee!

And here is to Fillpail, and to her left ear,
Pray God send our master a Happy New Year,
And a Happy New Year, as e'er he did see,
With a wassailing bowl we'll drink to thee!

And here is to Colly, and to her long tail,
Pray God send our master, he never may fail,
A bowl of strong beer; I pray you draw near,
And a jolly wassail it's then you shall hear!

Come, butler, come fill us a bowl of the best,
And we hope that your soul in heaven may rest,
But if you do draw us a bowl of the small,
Then down shall go butler, bowl, and all!

And here's to the maid in the lily-white smock
Who tripped to the door, and slipped back the lock,
Who tripped to the door, and pulled back the pin,
For to let these jolly wassailers in!

Best wishes for 2006 to all of you!

And a Happy, Happy New Year to you, Lindsey, and to all the members here.
Let's hope that 2006 will be a year of good will, easing of political strife, and prosperity for all.

There are an awful lot of folks glad to see the back of that year. Tsunami victims, earthquake victims, hurricane victims... sheeeeeesh...

Ok, ok, I looked it up and I agree, the best way to deal with 2005 would be alcoholic amnesia. I'm still working on that, which I fear may take a while.

Happy 2006 to one and all, and to all of us!

Indeed! We could do with generous amounts of all of those!

LOL!! I picked up a bottle of good champagne on New Year's Eve, shared a generous glass with my father at midnight, and polished off the rest of the bottle myself on New Year's Day. Not a bad way to start the year, I don't think!

Geez, I am soooooo glad 2005 is over...Me, too! What a rotten year. It felt like about two years, it was so bad! ;)

Happy new year to you, and all.

Thanks, Dan. I kinda feel that way myself... though every time I mention to my surgeon that I'm running out of body parts I can do without, she reminds me I still have my tonsils and appendix...
