If I keep painting sheep and lambs perhaps I should put them in one thread.;)

@ June: You painted them as if they were pets, which you've mentioned you had as a wee lass. Look at them, their individuality, looking at you expectantly. Definitely pets. Charming and domestic. All we need to do is get Bougerreau to paint a group shot of you posing with your wooly buddies here. Seems to me you would have been perfect as the shepherd girl.

@ Steve: looks like you've got the little sheep ready for the big game. Haha.

Hi Steve - you are very sharp this morning (here) eating razor blades for breakfast? Holiday - yes, if we make it to the 24th we will have chalked up 50yrs! BTW, I've heard the joke about murder sentences. :D:D

Mr.DA - picture this - me going out into the paddock carrying a bucket and wearing rubber boots as protection against the snakes, calling "goatie, goatie, goatie" (OK, I know it sounds silly) and 50+ goats and kids come running. Not exactly a Bougerreau picture. I bet Mr.Ploos could do something with that imagery.;)

I've read about Australian snakes and they're nasty. . . yikes! And you had to wear protective gear against them as you were innocently tending your flock? Crikey! That sounds borderline biblical.

That story is oddly surreal because of that detail given in such a matter-of-fact way. I think Bougerreau, the consummate gentleman artist, just withdrew his offer in a faint.

This sounds like a job for Frazetta. I bet you could write a story and get a movie deal. The imagery would be just too tempting for B-Movie Hollywood to pass up. It sounds like the Australian studios would just treat it as a sweet children's movie and miss the opportunity for shock and horror like I'm experiencing presently. My paternal instinct just flared up. Yeeeesh! :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::confused::confused::conf used::confused::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Now that I'm living in the town snakes aren't much of a problem - I've only seen one in my garden in nearly 30yrs. However lizards are another thing - I had one in the kitchen today - heard hissing and found my two cats surrounding quite a large blue tongue. They are harmless but I'm frightened of that sort of animal and quickly called my daughter as I was home on my own. Actually, it's my 14yr old granddaughter who is the lizard catcher - her mother had to drive her the five minutes to my place.

Meanwhile the two cats and I kept a wary eye on it - until I heard the advancing sound of the 4x4 and the welcome arrival of my two rescuers. I stayed in the sanctuary of my computer room until the beast was caught and returned to the garden.

This is the second time I have had to be rescued - they come in thru the cat door. They live in our garden tho I rarely see them. I believe they do a good job of cleaning up the snails. I hope that we don't come home from Singapore to find a lizard colony in the house. Mainly I worry about the cats bringing in birds and mice.

Did I ever tell you the one about the cat bringing in a young chicken/pullet? Will save that story for another time.:p
