It's a Roundup!

Hello peeps.  I love driving out to the horse stables to see what's going on.  Call me crazy but I love the dirty, stinky mess.  It reminds me of driving by the dairies where I grew up.  Anyway,  I happen to be there and see these goats and two sheep just walking around, doing whatever they please.  They were runaways!  They had escaped from their stall and were having a good ol' time.

There was a guy in a pickup watching them so I asked if they were his - nope, he just watched them escape!  Being the animal lovers that we are we decided to round them up!  It's time I tell you that this was when I was recouperating from my total knee replacement!  I was wearing sandals as I had a pedicure scheduled later that afternoon.  At this time I was using a cane but when I got out of the car I left it.  I was just going to take photos with my phone -- not do a roundup!
Notice the guy in the white and black shirt?  I don't know how we decided that I would be the one chasing them around and he would be the one standing by the gate where they need to go!  This isn't all of them; I'm guessing there were around a total of twenty and two sheep.
Look at all the babies!  They were so cute; jumping over imaginary objects.  The black and blackish butts are the sheep.  They could have used a good shearing!
Doesn't this one look like a deer!  I knew goats ate just about anything - but pine needles, really?
This horse was just waiting to join in the fun.  Isn't she a beauty.

So, after we successfully rounded them up it was time for my pedicure.  Yikes!  What was I thinking?  Before she started I asked if I could wipe off my feet and sandals.  My feet came out smelling like a rose!!

Friday Smiles 143

Hello peeps.  I'm joining in with Annie at A Stitch In Time.  I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and have an even better weekend planned!  I'm off today but have a Doctor appointment; this will the third this month!  Holy moly.  I've met my out of pocket expense so at least I don't have to pay my co-pays the rest of the year!!

I have some knitting humor for you all today.  I thought that was appropriate since that's the only craft I've been doing lately.

A man and his wife were sitting in church, the man was sleeping and his wife was knitting. The priest asked "Who created the Earth and man?" The woman poked the man with her knitting needle and the man screamed, "GOD!" The Priest looked at him and said, "That's right." Then he asked "Who is God's son?" Once more the woman poked her husband with the needle, he woke up and screamed, "Jesus Christ!" Again, the priest said, "Correct." Finally, the priest asked, "What did Eve say to Adam when she didn't want any more children?" The knitter poked her husband again, but this time he screamed "Poke me with that thing one more time and I'm going to rip it off!" The priest smiled and said, "That's right."

And to celebrate Halloween.
 I hope these made you giggle and brought a smile to your face!

Hello everyone!   I'm joining in with Julia over at Stamping GroundPeople from places near and far show their desks and what they are working on.  Julia has a full explanation of WOYWW on her blog HERE.

Remember the sweater that I mentioned last week?  I decided to pick it back up and see how far I get before my big vacation.  Wish me luck!  So, my workdesk is my comfy chair and my lap.
Now isn't that a pile of yarn!!  I'm actually hoping I find all of the yarn.  I used one of those "space saver" bags and took all the air out of my yarn.  Tee hee.
Here's a photo of some flowers I spotted.  Can you see the bee on one of them?

As always I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those ending in the same number as me.
