On The Fourth day of Christmas . . .


No kids, that is not a theremin, nor is it from the soundtrack of “The Day The Earth Stood Still.”  The hand we’ve been dealt today involves the unfortunate head on collision of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” with the musical saw.  Just when you thought it was over – verse two.  Oh, then verse three, false alarm.  Best to clear the dogs out of the room before you hit play.

BTW, in the original song of the twelve days, the fourth day’s gift is actually four “Colly Birds” not “calling birds.”  The word “colly” means “black as coal.”  Four black birds is today’s gift.
