"On the Eighth day of Christmas..."

On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying, Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

Note: Where do I begin with researching the image of "Eight maids a-milking". Nothing untoward just very interesting. Some links that didn't quite cut the mustard for me but worth a laff! Firstly the above image must be given credit to 'TrekEarth'. Other notable images include "How stuff works", "Table and Home", "dkKnits" and "Winterberry".
