And so finally, at long last, the 12th Day of Blogmas draws to an end.

Here are 12 Drummers Drumming ... plus a lagniappe, because I like you.

And now I need to get some sleep; we're leaving in about five hours.

Merry Christmas, Internet.

  1. You did this as a very special gift to Joke, didn't you? I mean, with his favorite carol and all.

  2. Which one's the lagniappe? Animal? Gilligan? Micky? Ringo?

    Thanks for two Ringos in three days. I'll always be a Ringo girl.

    If you get, like, 400 comments from me here it's all Blogger's fault.

  3. Very well done, indeed.

    Did you watch Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story? New Year's Day was a rainy Monday, and I couldn't resist.

    And then to see her, first thing among your drummers... wow! Makes me feel so... Laaaaaa, la, la, la, laaaaa... Close to You...

  4. Sarah: Don't forget the little kid from the Partridge Family! But really, I think the lagniappe is Animal.

    Suzanne: Yes! I've seen it! And it's amazing!

  5. Oh, and Badger? It just suggested itself. You know, 12 Days, 12 Drummers, Little Drummer Boy ... that Joke is writhing in agony is just a lagniappe.

    And my word verification? Lagniappe.

    OK, kidding about that last one.
