12 Days of Christmas: 12th

(NOTE: some pics enlarge when clicked; you also may need

On the twelvth
day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me....

Twelve hummers 'humming'

Eleven Skypers skyping

Ten Cords* a-keeping

Nine MD's lancing

8 knaves a-bilking

Seven Swamis sitting

Six beasts a-playing

Five olden beings

Four 'hauling' nerds

Three drenched men

Two fertile loves

...and a cartridge in a bare tree.


* Cord was manufactured between 1929-1932 and 1936-7, along with two other great classics, Auburn and Duesenberg.

There you have it, my 12 Days of Christmas is now complete, and not to be repeated, I might add! My brother and his family are slated to fly in from Boston, but the bodacious winter storm may impact airport travel. Ugh for everybody having to deal with this weather, especially stranded motorists who run out of gas with nowhere to go...and this the last full day of fall!

I believe I would like to be gifted the 5 Olden Beings! They have now been added to my permanent Christmas list! Thanks for sharing!
