Monday's Child

Picking up on a thread from my darling YDG, the irrepressible JacqueSue, who got it from from the far from repressed Sling:
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Well according to this calculator I was born on a Monday! Let's not dwell on that but rather on George Petty's artistic interpretation of the first day of the old rhyme.

Much fairer than any picture of me.

23 aprile - Sant'Adalberto
