11th Day of Christmas

Eleventh Day of Christmas - Eleven Pipers Piping.

On the eleventh 11th day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me,
Eleven 11 pipers piping,
Ten 10 lords a-leaping,
Nine 9 ladies dancing,
Eight 8 maids a-milking,
Seven 7 swans a-swimming,
Six 6 geese a-laying,
Five 5 golden rings.
Four 4 calling birds,
Three 3 French hens,
Two 2 turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

We drove back to San Francisco today - 3 hard hours through wind and rain. Jim had the hardest turn from Livermore to Walnut Creek riding into a driving rain. Limited visibility. Jim said, "I am grateful for those white lines." And it led him to remember one of the best papers he wrote in high school. He was a 16 year old new driver when he wrote an A paper about the importance of having white lines on the highway and using hand signals to commmunicate between drivers and promote safety. Anybody remember using hand signals? They are not seen often today.

We were glad to park the car on the street outside our daughter's house. Whew!

Tonight the area weather was the main story on TV news and we could see how lucky we were.
