My Favorite Things

The fifth day of Christmas is known as the Feast Of Fools. Basically, it is just a day for having fun and being silly. Traditionally, it's a night for having parties with friends, playing games and just seeing how goofy you can act so, if you happen to have this week off from work, let loose baby!
Most of my partying friends are out of town right now so I'll have to see what I can come up with but in the meantime, for a little fun, I put together this little take-off on an old Christmas classic.
I trust you all know the tune.....

Maters on vines and kisses from loves
Just fired pots and new welding gloves
Brown leather aprons with metal hammer rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Grey colored kitties and chocolate galore
Backhoes and Bobcats and concrete to pour
A tall man with blue eyes that makes my heart sing
These are a few of my favorite things

Men in brown hardhats and bright safety shirt
Planting and digging and rolling in dirt
Warm winter jobs that last into spring
These are a few of my favorite things

When the knife slips
When the nail zings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad!

*Julie Andrews, of course

Hey Sarah! well, I'm happy to hear from you! I've often seen the Singapore location on Sitemeter and wondered who was that person there that visited often!
Thank you very much and Merry Christmas to you!
