Ewe’ll never guess what’s happened here!

Shirley Sheep lay down, hoping beyond hope that what she thought had happened to her wonderful woolly coat was just a figment of her imagination!

Sheila Sheep stared aimlessly into the distance thinking of days gone by when she could hold her head up high, safe in the knowledge that she looked like the rest of the herd! How she regretted that last visit to the salon!

Siobhan Sheep rather liked her new look as she munched happily on some rather glorious green Irish grass!

Feeling a Little Sheepish?

Well, I do have a soft spot for sheep…not sure why but I do! So here are a some Turkish sheep who are looking a bit thoughtful…unusual I thought!

Saban and Sadi (Pronounced Shaban and Shadi) couldn't help feeling a little deflated-things hadn't turned out for them as they had planned!

Sadi had put all that make up round her eyes on hearing that Ramikan the Ram was in town.....

And Saban, who was a little older than Sadi, knew it was her last chance for a little fun!

Unfortunately it turned out that Ramikan should have been called Ramikan’t when the whispers about his sexuality hit the headlines of the local Shepherd Times newspaper!!

At least they had each other and were united in their misery!

Travel Theme: Gaudy

This week’s travel theme is Gaudy and this fine idea belongs to Ailsa at

http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/02/08/travel-theme-gaudy/

Whilst walking in some local woods I saw a very strange sight……

Surely these holly leaves are the wrong colour and perhaps a little gaudy?

Or have they been spray painted by some antisocial unpleasantry?

Or have they been spray painted by some antisocial unpleasantry?

 

Walking on a little further I think I found just who the antisocial unpleasantries were!

If you’re going to commit a crime, at least make sure no one can pin it on you (not really good advice I know), especially if there is evidence of it all over yourself!….

The gang of 4 quietly chewed the cud not realising that the spray paint had spilled out onto their fleeces! Sadly, as could be said to be proved in this case, sheep are thought to maybe be colour blind!

Where have they hidden the cans?

In the UK we have something called ASBOs which are ‘Antisocial Behaviour Orders’ which can prevent those with them from going to certain places or hopefully stop them from misbehaving.

This Badass group of sheep all have ASSBOs! ‘Anti-social Sheep Behaviour Order’.

I fear the next step may be prison!!

That’s a Funny Name for a Chaffinch!

Today I’ve had one of those busy doing a lot sort of days but when you get to the end of it you wonder what you have done!

It snowed for most of the day and so it was hard to keep my lens dry and achieve good photos!

Anyway I thought I introduce Chertsey Chaffinch who I first met last week…

"Why is she calling me Chertsey...what a ridiculous name!" snapped Dave Chaffinch!

“Why is she calling me Chertsey…what a ridiculous name!” snapped Dave Chaffinch!

Then a little further along I saw some sheep on the other side of a stream….the one with the black face stared at me and then stamped her foot!! She seemed quite cross! Then she just appeared to decide to ignore my existence!

"I'd give her what for if she dared to come into this field!" Ewegenie siad bravely, all the while knowing that the woman with the camera would not cross the water anyway!

I rather liked this fungi growing on a tree….

Fergie Fungus tried hard to smile...he just needed a few more weeks!

Is It Something I Said?

Whilst perusing my photographs I suddenly noticed how many of the creatures I photograph are totally ignoring me!!

Well, have a look and see if I’m right!

"Ducks...listen to me...ignore mad camera woman and she'll soon go away!" hissed Suzuki Swan!

“Ducks…listen to me…ignore mad camera woman and she’ll soon go away!” hissed Suzuki Swan!

"The only thing to do now is RUN even if it doesn't work in water....RUN Christine RUN!" screeched Corinne the moment she espied the camera!

“The only thing to do now is RUN even if it doesn’t work in water….RUN Christine RUN!” screeched Corinne the moment she espied the camera!

"Don't look now but she's back!" whispered Darren to the other two!

“Don’t look now but she’s back!” whispered Darren to the other two!

"I shall keep my beak in the air and continue with my course, thus letting her believe I haven't seen her....mwah ha ha ha!" cackled Carrie Cormorant!

“I shall keep my beak in the air and continue with my course, thus letting her believe I haven’t seen her….mwah ha ha ha!” cackled Carrie Cormorant!

"Hey Geraint," quacked Des, "Put your head under your wing like me... that'll spoil her shot!"

“Hey Geraint,” quacked Des, “Put your head under your wing like me… that’ll spoil her shot!”

And that’s only the water birds!

Look it continues…..

"Eat my shorts!" said Randy as he turned on his heels and left!

“Eat my shorts!” said Randy as he turned on his heels and left!

"I shall be glad when this snow has gone and look white once again!" sighed Perry. "Shhh! she's back again...look the other way and look casual!" neighed Pint-size!

“I shall be glad when this snow has gone and I look white once again!” sighed Perry.
“Shhh! she’s back again…look the other way and look casual!” neighed Pint-size!

"Resist the urge to stare like we usually do...Ewes, eyes forward....copy me!" baa-ed Shirley!

“Resist the urge to stare like we usually do…Ewes, eyes forward….copy me!” baa-ed Shirley!

"Tweet tweet!  Not looking at you, Tweet tweet, There's nothing you can do!" said Basil rather unkindly!

“Tweet tweet! Not looking at you, Tweet tweet, There’s nothing you can do!” said Basil rather unkindly!

Fortunately some creatures are not so unkind!

Three cheers for One-Horn!

Henry came up to see what was going on and didn't ignore me!

And Rocky definitely loves me….

"Wonder when you'll give me something to eat!" said Rocky contentedly sitting in the sun.

Can Hospital Watch Please Be OVER!

The essence of this blog is selfish deep relief as I (I haven’t forgotten my beloved sufferers in this-honest!)…yes, I think my high anxiety levels may be coming down as my nearest and dearest have all come through their operations! About time too I say!!

Over the past 3 weeks my son, my mother and my dearest friend have all undergone surgery….not forgetting a very lovely elderly neighbour who has been in hospital too!

Enid Ewe could do nothing but stare in amazement at how this woman had coped so magnificently with so many sick people around her!

You may well remember from last week’s posts that I had my mother staying with me after her carpel tunnel operation-she is well on the way to full hand health-hurray! A flower shot to celebrate!

This one goes to my mum whom I force to read my blog regularly!

(Is it ‘who’ or ‘whom’??)

Then there was my dearest friend Adrienne who provided a strange dog photo recently (http://wp.me/p2oXge-kN) who has had 6 and a half hour surgery and is now comfortable in hospital and demanding ice cream and TV from what I can gather! For her it’s a magnificent swan at full strength…

"Soon," said Cyril Swan, "You will be back to doing what the hell you want, unimpeded by anything...have a pint for me!"

“Soon,” said Cyril Swan, “You will be back to doing what the hell you want, unimpeded by anything…have a pint for me!”

Then there’s my 25 year old son James who has been travelling for nearly three years now (whatever did I do to offend him??). Well, a couple of nights ago he had a sleepwalking incident and broke his hand so badly he needed surgery to correct it! BLIMEY! He had the surgery last night and sounded much better this morning. By the way, he’s in New Zealand and I am in England!

These two go out to him…..

"Well, from what I can gather, he leapt up, fell back and woke up with a busted left hand!" said Sidney conspiratorially to his twin brother Sam. "Oh dear," said Sam, "Thank goodness we don't have hands!"

“Well, from what I can gather, he leapt up, fell back and woke up with a busted left hand!” said Sidney conspiratorially to his twin brother Sam.
“Oh dear,” said Sam, “Thank goodness we don’t have hands!”

This last photo is of a pink lavateria flower given to us by my neighbour Maggie who had a bad reaction to the flu jab a month ago.

She’s now getting better thankfully…."Get well soon Maggie!" aid Lydia Laveteria!

“Get well soon Maggie!” aid Lydia Laveteria!

And here is my love to them all…

Get Well Soon xxxxx

And That’s All!!
