Wonder if this means anything - you know, like 8 magpies would?

21 Aug, 2009

 

lol im trying to remember what 8 magpies mean , i can remember up to 7 for a secret never to be told

21 Aug, 2009

 

1 for sorrow,2 for joy,
3 for a girl and 4 for a boy'
5 for silver, 6 for gold,
7 is a secret never to be told.
8 is a wish and 9 a kiss.
10 is a bird you must not miss.................. what did we do before google
