After the Twelve Days of Christmas the Grand Total Was -

Written by: Tim Ryerson

12 drummers drumming
22 pipers piping
30 lords a leaping
36 ladies dancing
40 maids a milking
42 swans a swimming
42 geese a laying
40 gold-en rings...
36 calling birds
30 french hens
22 turtle doves
And 12 partridges in a pear tree

...Frankly, it was a difficult two weeks
It quickly became stuffy and cramped
For example: Where you gonna put 40 cows?
All parties (including me) got VERY grouchy
And the UPS driver was NOT amused
I'm thinking a pair of socks would be nice next year...
