On the Second Day of Christmas...

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:30 AM

Well, no true love of mine gave me two turtle doves today, I'm afraid. Well, not really — why would I want two turtle doves? And skip the French hens too. But, since I didn't wish all of you a Merry Christmas on

Christmas day, please accept my belated wishes. With eleven days to go, I've decided to post a short note of thanks to each member of my blogroll over the remaining days of Christmas. I present the Eleven Blogs of Christmas.

Going in the present order of my blogroll (which may get confusing, since it shifts based on the updating of blogs), I'm going to start with my Missouri blogging buddy Michael (of Time to Believe). This seems an appropriate way to start, for, among other things, Michael always reminds me to be thankful. Michael has posted 130 “Thankful Tuesday Two” posts in which he takes a moment to be thankful for things we might otherwise take for granted. Thanks, Michael. :)

Well, now... Did you give turtledoves to anyone, that she might return one of the pair? Hmmmm??? ;) Merry Christmas, Tim!

I haven't tried baked Turtle Dove, but I've had some French Hen before. Someday I'd like to try Partridge and Pear. You can keep the tree. Pear trees are very hard to climb.

No, Kevin, I did not. I don't know anyone who would like turtle doves, even if I knew a good source for buying them. Somehow, I suspect after the twelve days of Christmas one's true love would no longer be so. ;) Baked turtle dove doesn't do much for me, Ed. :) I like pears... I'm not much for climbing trees though. Christopher, thanks. (To give credit where credit is due, I got the idea from when you posted a pre-Christmas post to your blogroll members a few years back. :)) I had a great one, did you? Michael: You're welcome. :)
