Living Retired #221- December 18, 2017.
THE TWELVE WORDS of CHRISTMAS.
BREAKING NEWS: The ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ is old news.
It’s time to put the six geese a laying out to pasture. The eight maids a milking deserve time off. And the ten lords a leaping are all leaped out.
Instead, not back by popular demand, it’s my annual Living Retired ‘Twelve Words of Christmas’–twelve holiday greetings, each saying Merry Christmas in twelve words.
