Sheep

Sitting on the roadside near Stanage Edge this afternoon. Though elderly and weather-beaten she looks as if she is auditioning for a role in "Yes, Minister!", playing the part of a haughty civil servant.

  1. She looks Italian. Why? I have no idea.

    1. Perhaps you once had an affair with an Italian woman who looked like that. Was she also horny?

  2. Sir Humphrey? Yes, I can see the likeness.

    1. And civil servants are a little sheepish...

  3. Aw, she's very sweet! Basking in the sun...I like to do the same, and admit to being somewhat elderly & weather beaten my own self!

    1. I was about to point out the similarity between this particular sheep and myself, too :-)

    2. Yes. She has also got an elegant, long neck and the short hair also suits her.

    1. Having visited America several times, I don't think I ever saw even a single sheep... but Donald Trump has many sheep-like followers.

    1. Petunia? You could invite her round for tea and cucumber sandwiches. "One lump or two Petunia?"
      "Baaaa!"

    2. She is so beautiful I think she would have seconds on the cucumber sandwiches and plain tea.

  6. To me, there is nothing haughty in her expression - just enjoying the sun and maybe secretly smiling to herself about something we can't even begin to guess.

    1. You are defending her because she looks like you... apart from the horns.

  7. A look of bliss and contentment on her face. We trust, YP, you didn't shout "mint sauce" as you passed by?

    1. I think she was having a poo at that moment CG and expect that you display a very similar expression when sitting on the throne with the hole in the middle.

    2. Don't know - I'm not one for contemplating my image when suitably enthroned ! I have other things to ponder...

  9. Whereas all she is really doing is soaking up a bit of sunshine into that old frame I guess.

    1. And heaven knows we have had far too little sunshine this past week.

  10. I love her stylishly colored horns!

    (And you know, you make fun of me for taking pictures of insects having sex, but is it any better to photograph a post-orgasmic sheep?)

    1. I swear I never laid a finger on her Steve! After all, I am neither Welsh nor a New Zealander.

  11. A sweet, sweet face. :)
