Day 221 of 365: Two For Joy


They may be a bit difficult to see, but there were a couple magpie birdies out front this afternoon. There is a little rhyme Matt told me about that goes...

One for sorrow, Two for joy.
Three for a girl, Four for a boy.
Five for silver, Six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told.
Eight for a wish, Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a letter,
Eleven for worse, and Twelve for better.

Did Matt tell you that if you see only one you have to salute it and wish it a good day?
