Countdown to Christmas 4

On the fourth day of Christmas...


On the fourth day of Christmas "My True Love" gave to me
Four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

Having no idea what a "calling bird" was, my ex - oh yes he is definitely my ex now - sent me four CAWING birds. These being crows and my neighbours being superstitious, an argument ensued. Mrs Poppalov insisted that four crows meant I was going to give birth to a son. Mr Poppalov insisted that I was about to die. I'm not sure who made the most noise, the crows or the Poppalovs.In any case, one of my other neighbours called animal control.

"My True Love" is toast.

  1. I'm following these 12 Days of Xmas posts with delight! It's the bright spot of my morning with my first coffee, and lets me forget for a few moments the pain of trying to quit smoking. Thanks so much, just wanted you to know you brighten my day.

  2. You've made my day, S.L.. My mother died of lung cancer. She tried hard to quit but could never quite make it. If I can help, even just a little bit in your battle, I am delighted. Hang in there. It's a worthy fight.
