I just read Karen's What-I-did-on-my-summer-vacation.

Way to go...we all need summer vacation.

Because of the kitty eating lambs without permission....we asked our oldest to come take some missouri air on his vacation....while we went on ours.

Our summer vacation began at 1 am on Saturday morning, when we tried to get ahead of a huge warned storm, by loading the sheep in the dark. Only one ewe managed to escape during loading, and we did get her back in without much delay. By late Saturday afternoon we got a free truck and sheep wash from Lake Erie. If you have never had a lake-effect storm, take it from me...avoid Lake Erie! Later that night, we finally arrived at our sheep's new home. We could tell everything was beautiful....even tho it was dark. I must say the new family was very patient and kind as we kept them all up into the second day of our vacation.

Our "second summer vacation" began with a quick trip down the NewYork Mountains into Pa. Bopeep was lacking sleep, and many of her marbles spilled down the mountain....but no one claimed to notice. Our truck did sport a new couple of cracks in the windshield from Bopeep swatting a fly. However, we did eventually arrive OK at the new home of our old high school and college friends. These folks actually introduced Bopeep to her one and only the fall of 19 something.....ohhhhh. You don't want to know that!

Anyway, we made the most of our vacation and all stayed up until it was Monday....and the "Peeps family" had to leave. Arriving home before midnight on Monday, we were glad to have made the trip....and anxious for another "vacation".
I do have some lovely photos of Summer Daylilies...but, the storm on Saturday morning, fried our Fax machine...and the new one installed on Tuesday....doesn't want to load my photos off my unless the computer genius tells us what to do next....we won't have new photos.
Argh!!!!! This is Puerto Rico....growing nicely....and looking for a new home that doesn't want to eat him....or otherwise tamper with him.
And this is what's left of Peeps, saying...go ahead...take a summer vacation.

Thank you again, and Patrick, for making that long trip to bring me the most beautiful group of sheep! I couldn't be happier with all of them. They all are doing well. You need a vacation from your vacation! Great picture of Bahama's twin. I absolutely love their color. I will send you updates on him and the girls, but you can also check my blog for some recent photos.

Welcome back, Peepers!!! Wow, a VACATION! Who knew you could actually take one! hehehehehe.......
next year, you're headed to Pat's, then over to Garrets, and then on to Vancouver where you all will board the Columbia and sail up the inside passage to Haines, Alaska, then land eventually at my house! Right???? HUH???? Why not!! It's called car pooling.....
