When I was little, despite playing a pipe (flute) my only experience with the word piping was a next door neighbor who smoked a tobacco pipe. It always smelled wonderful. I thought the true love was giving eleven men to perfume the air. It didn't seem like a weird gift to me; especially because of the barnyard smells that would be present with the other gifts, just think of all those birds. Ergo I never questioned it. It wasn't until later when I saw an image depicting the 12 days of Christmas that I realized the song was referring to a musical instrument. But I still like the smell of pipe tobacco smoked outside so, in tribute to my first concept, I present you with the pipers piping pattern. Happy Monday Y'all!
