I don't suppose you see a lot of sheep in Arizony, Elizabeth...from a childhood of reading pulp Westerns I recall the ranchers pulled down the fences and drove 'em out!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Oh you'd be surprised, Ray! We've got 'em - you just have to go out to the Rez to find 'em! Many Navajo and Hopi are still sheep herders. But in England you can't turn around without seeing more! It's great!
And there's still plenty up in my home state of Wyoming - we used to shut down our main street once a year to allow them to move through to their summer pastures!

'Spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean'... Have a great time and enjoy.
This is a fabulous picture. The white sheep against the shadow.. Fabulous.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Exactly! Thank you Astrid!
Sheep have become my favorite animal, Elizabeth, in the years since living here in the Netherlands...and visiting England almost every year. How can we not love them!!!

Enjoy your time away with your other family!!

The picture is a likey.

You traded Frank for your family? In that case, just make the best of it.

I can just imagine that sheep parade in Wyoming.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh thank you so much, Louis!
Wouldn't have - if I had a choice! smile
A sheep parades is quite a sight!
