WELL---in an interesting turn of events---today the elf/elves did NOT bring something with the count of 9---INTERESTING!
I made my usual Sunday rounds---left for early services, taught the 3 year old class where the answer is ALWAYS "JESUS"---had lunch with friends---
I came home to find the cutest cloth Christmas bag with a beautiful net bow (NOW DOESN'T ALL THIS SOUND LIKE A FEMALE?)
Here is today's rhyme:
"On the ninth day of Christmas we know you're on the run. (MUST KNOW MY Sunday Schedule)
So we want you to stop, relax, and have a chew of gum."
Inside the bag was a Christmas pack of gum.
HUMMM---no longer counting the number of items, still a we, knows my schedule---
