on the TENTH day of Christmas


my true love gave to me…..10 lords a-leaping……..Lautrec_the_jockey_1899IF I had a lord – I'd definitely want him leaping!  LOL!!  Not alot to say today……….I hope you are having some fun in the sun (for those in the Southern hemisphere) and the you in the Northern Hemisphere are keeping warm & snuggled by the fire with a good book.

The "ten lords a-leaping" represents the Ten Commandments this first image is from a manuscript dated approx 840ad & ascribed to the Dutch artist Karolingischer Buchmaler.  The second is by Rembrandt.
