Shearing...Interrupted

Yup, they are still fluffy - Marsha got as far as south Mt. Vernon and had to turn back - they had at least 6" of snow on the road and it was coming down like crazy - disappointing, but it's been pretty cold this weekend - there was slush on the back porch when I finally got out of bed this morning to feed the poor starving darlings (actually they were all napping, so no harm done).

On the bright side - John sat up on the edge of the bed this afternoon and didn't scream - he didn't even whimper! He did have to lie back down quite quickly, BUT, he also picked his own feet up off the floor! Yay! He IS getting better. He IS getting better. He IS getting better. (that's my mantra these days...)

Next? Ordering from the online seed catalogs. (I can't promise tomorrow, I'm singing at church in the a.m. & I've got to get John's hair washed somehow - he's starting to look worse than the sheep!)

What encouraging news about John. Too bad about the sheep, though I'm sure they're delighted to stay warm a little while longer.

Hooray! John's getting better! Yay! I need to run right out and tell Skittles...he'll be so happy to hear the news!

Well, it sounds like baby steps to me which is probably all he can do now anyhow. That's great that he is able to sit up without yelping in pain. I sure hope they can do something where he is back to his old self. Too bad the sheepies didn't get their hair cut. Maybe it's just as well! I do love seeing them with all that fluff. I keep looking at them as a knitting project...

He IS getting better, he IS getting better! Can all the sheep say BAAAA? (And "we like staying WAAARM!") I'm feeling guilty for planning to shear my girls on March 22 (but am hoping to have coats on hand at that time).

Skittles said that John should get better so he can (let me see if I get this correct...as my sheep-ish is rusty) show John how he places the tire for a "good one"...whatever that is. I think he means he wants to show John how he moves his tire to just the right spot, then backs up to hit it. The girls and Colin also wanted him to get better so he could come to Arizona. ;-)
