winter

December 29, 2010

Ok, now I think I know what happened to the eleven pipers and the twelve drummers. Mmm hmmm, the lazy bums decided to take advantage of it’s being winter to go ice fishing instead of performing their Twelve Days of Christmas duties. They didn’t even let anyone know, until just now. The nerve!

I guess you just can’t trust a musician, eh?

Well, despite all of that, I sure hope everyone had a fantasmagoriacal holiday and here’s to 2011! May it be the year we all want it to be and more!

Oh, and just in case you hadn’t had a chance to check out the other Twelve Day shenanigans, please take a peek at the First DaySecond DayThird DayFourth DayFifth DaySeventh DayEighth DayNinth Day and Tenth Day.

Happy New Year!
