The white fluffy month

The farmer next door has for some reason herded his sheep from the big field behind us to the small field in front of us (they do this by driving Land Rovers at them and honking). This means lots of sheepy noises this evening.

For the record, sheep do not go baa. They go AHHHHHHHHHH! Which is pretty funny, to be honest.

May is my favorite, and not just because I indulge myself the whole month. All the various thorn trees explode into poofy white flowers (mayflowers, as it were) and the fields are full of poofy white sheep. It’s purdy.

In conclusion, AHHHHHHHHHH! Have a good weekend. The fête season starts tomorrow!

Good it’s not pronounced feet ain’t it?

“It’s feet season!”

Really not something to be excited about, unless you’re that hotel night manager in Nashville.

@Durnedyankee — That pronunciation was simply a matter of fate.

Wait, it’s not pronounced like “feet”? How embarrassing.

@Deborah HH- wow, and I thought the 1401 at the Smithsonian was big! Holy cow!

And it will still work after the next Solar Flare knocks us back into the early 1800s!

Cultural acclimation…

Watch two English blokes have massive food orgasms at El Dorado Cafe, Austin, TX… TexMex gained two converts.
