4th day of Christmas

The 'four calling birds' are the Evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; or their Gospels. Which makes sense because they are "calling" out the story.

Elisabeth did a "Boxing Day" Meme on the 26th that she got from Paperback Writer, called the meme of 4.

Being the 4th day of Christmas, I thought it a good post for today. Since I watch very little TV, I've modified it somewhat.

Four jobs I’ve had:

1. newspaper delivery boy
2. farm hand
3. US Navy hospital corpsman
4.Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist

Four places I’ve lived:

1. Chu lai So. Viet Nam
2. Albany NY
3. Clarksville Tenn.
4. Pusan So. Korea

Four favorite foods:

1. Tourtiere
2. cheese, wine, bread
3. turkey dinner
4. chocolate

Four movies I could watch over and over: (Books to read, for me)

1. French or Foe; Platt
2. Arabian Nights.
3. The Drifters; Michener
4. Bartlett's Poems for Occasions

Four Magazines I enjoy: (instead of tv)

1. Men's Health
2. National Geographic
3. Runners world
4. Journal of AANA

Four places I’ve travelled:

1. France; Paris, and southwest
2. Canada; Ottawa, Montreal, & Quebec
3.Texas; Corpus Christi, Dallas, San Antonio
4. California; Anahiem, San Francisco

Four places I’d like to visit:

1. Italy; Florence
2. Russia; St. Petersburg
3. Australia
4. Netherlands

Four websites I go to daily:

Rel - I stayed in Albany, NY for three months when I spent a year in the U.S. back in 1973-74. I was there from early November to the end of December '73, at McCloskey High School.

Maybe someday you'll write about your experiences in Vietnam. I think most people would be fascinated to read what you went through at such a young age. Interesting tidbits about you, Rel!

Interesting meme Rel.You look as though you've led an interesting life. I'm enjoying reading what each of the twelve days of Christmas represent too, I know the song of course but hadn't come across the meanings before. I like the pic of the four calling birds.

Hi Rel

Good MeMe. So you're another Vietnam Vet - terrible time in history, that, and I think Iraq is another Vietnam in some ways - unwinnable.

Fourth day of Christmas, interesting analogy with the four Gospels, nice too.

Take care
