For each month of the year, my best friend surprised me with:
Sincerest apologies are extended to the writer(s) of the English Christmas carol - Twelve Days of Christmas. Many liberties were taken with both the lyrics and meter of the poem. Very little research revealed that the first rendition was sung by Burl Ives in 1951. Raise your hands....How many remember? Of course, in 2010 Snoop Dogg also did a rendition. Does anyone care to raise your hand for this version?12 Drummers Drumming Along Glacial Drumlin State Trail11 Pipers At Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest10 Lords-A-Leaping Over Blue Mound State Park9 Ladies Dancing Atop Wildcat Mountain State Park8 Maids-A-Milking At Friendship State TrailStower Seven Lakes State Trail Photos6 Geese-A-Laying At Richard Bong State Recreation Area5 Passes To Copper Falls State Park4 Colly Birds Sitting On Red Cedar State Trail3 French Hens At Heritage Hill State Park2 Turtle Doves At Perrot State ParkAnd A Gandy Dancer In A pear tree.
