The sheep show!

It’s finally here – the Summer agricultural show season! First of the year last Saturday, and it was *huge*. We usually don’t go to this one as it clashes with another one, but it didn’t this year.

Behold – the sheep show. Dude had a little standup routine about each of these sheep and its particular virtues. Different breeds, you see. After which, a sheep popped out of the door in front and he sheared it for us.

Very amusing. If you’d like to see a picture big enough to read all their names – because of course you would – I got you.

There’s another show starting tomorrow. Stand by for livestock…!

p.s. Today was also the start of a four-day national holiday for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations. They light the beacons tonight (no, Tolkien didn’t make that up). I’d love to see it in person – they may not light them again in my lifetime – but none of the local beacons are convenient to park and walk up. We’ll watch it on TV.

I thought that web site they built to allow folks to wish her well was cool.

Best world leader in my lifetime. Even the other good ones are a mere eye blink compared to Her Royal Highness.

Harry, Lenny, Dougal, Sam, Noel, Arsie, Belinda, and Martha.

It looks like the shearer man is looking in vain for his sheep under all that wool, and everybody but Dougal was giving the escapee a standing ovination. (Dougal probably has seen the trick before.)

No, Durned, but that *is* the rescue where he ended up! He’s probably in that room.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
