Ballot...... My Sister....

My Sister phoned me today. She wishes to become a member of the Daft Sod Club. The question is: Should we let her in? She is, after all, NOT one of US. Maybe we should have a few rules in here. I mean where do we draw the line? We'd end up with all manner of Riff-Raff!
If we allow her sort in she will soon be followed by her daughter(Trailer Trash) and My Mother (Nutty Bat) not to mention some of her dodgy sidekicks and even our weirdo psychopathic relatives who I've spent my life avoiding. (A bit like the Addams Family)

So, I throw it out to you all. Dear Members and new members and Claudia.

Jamie and Jake are in because of guilt by association (Their Mothers)

For anyone who is new in here and happens to fall into this thread, Daft Sod is a term of endearment. I use the phrase a lot, so when I first used it in here I didn't realize it may be taken the wrong way or wasn't used in the USA. But luckily CatsToy, who was the first recipient, took it like it was meant and demanded we start A Daft Sods Club. Joining is free (Unless you are a relative of mine)

I welcome all and any suggestions as to my dilemma.

Thank you for your co-operation in advance.

Hugs Jxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PS I do love my sister really, why else would I have taken the time (aged 7) to tie her up and shove her down the stairs? :o}

we need a daft sod auxiliary to help raise money for daft sod functions like drinking parties and trips to Hawaii. Seeing how much love exists between the two of you, I'm sure your sister will be delighted and head the auxiliary campaign. Lynn

What a great idea! A splinter-group for fundraising purposes only... I LIKE IT!

They raise cash for "Good Causes".. We ARE the Good Cause. AND we don't have to suffer them apart from saying thanks when the Cheques come in. Awsome.

Thank you Lynn! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Tough one....how about immediate family members (those living in you household or one whom you produced) may become "Free" members. All others may join but must pay a fee (and it should be hefty...need to fund our parties & trips!!). Only free members may hold a position within the club and have final say on all voting matters!! In other words, the ones paying are just there for their money!! :) Pammy

I dunno Tasha, are these Daft Sods who are not really of us, except genetically, going to be Silent Partners, or will they have an actual say?

And, btw~ "Dear Members, New Members and Claudia?" Exactly where do I fit in?? :-)

One of my neighbors is John Cleese of Monty Python fame~ may I ask him if he wants to join as well? We can decorate hats fit for a Queen, and perhaps even host the annual Princess Margaret Look-a-Like Contest!

And,while we're on the subject: Can one buy Daft Sod at the nursery you work at??? If not, I think you should market the brand~ wouldn't that be a hoot?

Hugs,
Claudia

I agree 100% with Lynn as far as those who wish to join our "Daft Sod Society." If they really are interested they will need to form their own auxiliary group whose only function is to conduct fundraisers for those of us who are truly daft. We've all struggled and worked hard to get where we are and we can't just let anyone into our special group.

I am sure the auxiliary would have a lot in common ... as we do ... and the auxiliary could meet and discuss important items such as why they have to sweep the floor 5 times a day to pick up hair falling out of the "daft's" head ... or why the "daft" keeps losing her keys and forgetting her name and phone number ... and why is it that all she wants to do is SLEEP! And ... as possible fundraising ideas ... I love the Daft Sod idea. I'm sure all of the greenhouses and nurseries would be interested. And ... then there's always T-shirts. I'm sure someone could come up with something clever.

Oh ... it's going to be great. We've always talked about how wonderful it would be for all of us to get together and meet face-to-face somewhere ... and now we'll have a group of people raising the money for our own special conference. I can't wait!!!

hugs.

Well, I am not sure if I am one of the d.s. members, but I vote for your sis joining. It is not nice to tie your sister up and send her rolling downstairs, by the way. Even I, whom my big sister used to call "the little ingrate," didn't do that. Of course, I didn't think of it, not being as creative as our Turquoise Girl.

Moopster, I'm pretty sure you and Aortus were already members, But seeing as we are all members of the 'Altzheimers' Who the Hell Are You? Club........' I may be wrong.......Or I just forgive you anyway. LOL

Jeanne.......Love the turquoise writing! Thanks a million...

Daft Sods! LOL

You have been initiated.

Moopster........Let her in?... My Sister Fiona?....She is scared stiff of dogs, the sight of your 3 would render her hairless! Are you really certain we want 'This Sort' of person in?

A eagerly await any replies/////

Thank you, President Tasha. We are proud to join the Daft Sod Society.

Fiona is just too pretty a name to vote against her, even if she is afraid of dogs. We will keep our 3 away from the initiation ceremony as there are quite enough hair-deprived members as it is! Besides, our Yongy Bongy Bo is a terrier-ist. He once scared a group of men so badly that they jumped atop a neighbor's roof.

While they were up there, they did decide to replace the roof.

On the plus side, he is wearing a black collar with turquoise flames. (We think people need to be warned in advance, hence the flames.)

Well, slap my hairy face! Fiona should be considered a Daft Sod until proven otherwise! Until then, we can never be sure of the extent of her Daftness nor her Soddiness.

Now, as far as my weirdo psychopathic relatives, I prefer to think of them as Crazy Clods, as opposed to Daft Sods, and so they will never be invited to become members!

And I LIKE my sister, even though I dumped a pitcher of water on her electric blanket as she slept....age 10...LOL!!

Egads! I just got to this thread, and it's almost all said and done! Proof positive of just how very little my self-appointed role means to The Club... sheesh... Is it so much to ask for, a little appreciation?

Dear J: As our esteemed Leader, President, Chief Executive Officer, whatever of The Club - I'd say only YOU can admit absolutely anyone of your own choosing. Of course, this should primarily apply only to your own family members. And, this infinite power over membership is often described as: NEPOTISM. Absolutely no other mere member (even lowly me, the only other with a title) can wield this ultimate control.

Prior to today: Jamie, your own son, is already IN. Also, Jake - Margo's little guy - is also already IN (via the "grandfather" clause*).

As of this moment - no further exceptions to the original two requirements for membership:
1. Must be a participating member of this group - the ACS/CSN BC Board.
2. Must use these two words at least once: DAFT SOD.

1. & 2. above = automatic, and FREE, membership. As it always has been. No discrimination. All are welcome.

With all that being stated - LOVE the idea of an The Daft Sod Club Auxiliary! WELL DONE, Lynn! Requirements should be:
1. Recommendation from a current member of The Club.
2. Admission FEE - and, and hefty one!
3. Fundraising responsibilities, with a minimum requirement.
If the auxiliary member does not meet these requirements: J, you get to KICK 'EM OUT... And, The Club gets to keep whatever money, anyway. And, of course, all money benefits the members of The Club - NOT including The Auxiliary.

Kind regards, Susan

P.S.: As the self-appointed Unofficial Secretary whose only task was to track membership, I admit - I've done a poor job. For a while, I was merely keeping a total count. Stopped a while back, at 15, I believe. Never kept track of names. However, I think Moopy and Joe - you've been IN The Club for a long time, almost since the beginning. Sorry, JeanneD - can't remember... Doesn't matter, because you're IN now via your post above. The turquoise font gives you extra points, too. (Points? What am I starting? No, I'm not gonna keep track of points, either.)

*"grandfather" clause: J - this might be an American-ism. If you need further explanation, let me know...

Thanks,

As the Unofficial Secretary of The Daft Sod Club - I refuse to keep track of points. Our Esteemed Leader, J, will have to nominate someone else - IF SHE decides to implement a Point System.

I gave up trying to merely keep track of a total members number. Sheesh...

Kind regards, Susan

P.S. to Patty/outdoorgirl - You're IN! Because you used the two words: DAFT SOD. That's all is takes.

Can we give ourselves special daft sod names? I want to be Pete Moss. Someone could be Claude (Clod). I am sure the rest of the daft sods can think of others. Dirty Harry. Or maybe we are just Soil Sisters. I like the charging a hefty fee to others for our personal enjoyment. I just love clubs, especially exclusive ones. Like a country club but not snooty. We are down to earth. We can see what this is doing to me. More daft every minute. I also like the idea of marketing Daft Sod. Think of the advertising potential. We should John Cleese to do our commercial. Daft Sod is so Monty Pythonesque. By the way, he is one of my favorite people. I adored all the Monty Python stuff. And Benny Hill. And Mr. Bean. Perhaps it explains me a little. Maybe it explains me a little too much.
I love all of you guys so much. Whenever I feel that I have a Hard Row to Hoe,you make me laugh and bring joy to my life. To all the daft sods, I raise my trowel in honor of our friendship. On a more serious note, if you take dirt and seed and add water you have life, so daft sods are truly survivors.

All I know is, I am NOT going to be Claude OR Clod! Of course I was teased by 3 older brothers and was called Clod for years! The Trauma~ I think I need to go back to therapy (retail, of course!}

I think Tasha, instead of President shoud be Mother Earth! LOL

And I will be Sage...not only a plant used so often in all of the Native American ceremonies I am a part of, but doesn't Sage also mean Wise??? I like it! HAHAHAHA!

You know it really doesn't take much to set up a non-for profit organization.. Just need to set up the Charter, and have a board of directors... a mission statement .. we could file articles of incorporation, that might be an interesting thought...can even get government funding... hum... you all might be on to something!

OK... mine is MUD! two reasons for this 1.) I am an "earth sign" & my wife is a "water sign" TA-DA guess what that makes (OH BTW - she's a real RED-HEAD ... so I guess instead of mud we would make BRICKS!) I crack me up! 2.) any of you familair with the "original" Star Trek... well I equate myself with Harry Mud. He is my hero, I think they created him after MY LIFE!

Pete Moss.......I think your Idea is excellent I shall call myself Rathsanjani Luxury-Liner 111. Or Joe King. Or even Ben Dover.

I have the casting vote and in keeping with other posters suggestions have decided that my sister is NOT eligible for registration. She IS a Daft Sod, BUT, She IS NOT a member of this site.

Voted OUT...Blackballed. Sorry Fiona. Sh-t happens LOLOL!

I'll phone her later, like at 3 am her time and tell her that THE MOOPSTER
voted her out because she didn't like her name! ROFLMAO! Blame it all on Moopy!

I'll still ask her about the fundraising though! Ohhhhhhh I am such a mercinary Brat!

Welcome all new members......You truly are Daft Sods......LUV YA ALL.

We're wondering... Can our dogs, our canine companions, be admitted to The Club? All dogs, naturally and by birthright, are sort of automatic DAFT SODS, aren't they?

Or, do they need their own club: The Daft Sods Dog Club?

What do YOU think, Esteemed Leader?

Kind regards, Susan
Unofficial Secretary of The Daft Sod Club

P.S.: Not that my opinion matters one iota; but, nevertheless, I applaud your decision regarding your sister, Fiona. (Of course I do - because you're the BOSS!)

See, THIS is exactly why you are THE Esteemed Leader! You are so far beyond the rest of us, in both wisdom and creativity.

YES - ALL INCLUSIVE! Just like for us.

Not limited to dogs - all pets of all of us Daft Sods are automatically IN.

And since you've selected Schnugglepuss as the Unofficial Managing Director of P.O.D.S. - what office will Riva hold?

Gosh, including all your Turquoise Aortus Guppies - P.O.D.S. already far outnumbers us Daft Sods. (No, I will NOT keep track of them, either.)
