Don’t Look Now

Two Sheep

Two Sheep

“Look, look. I think that’s him again. He went past here yesterday, remember? I know you said he was just another human, but I’m not sure, I’ve not noticed another human with that black box thing growing out of their fore legs. Why on earth they walk round on their hind legs all the time like that is beyond me. Wouldn’t you think they would have worked out by now how much simpler it is to walk on all four feet. And his language! Well, if you can call it that. He hardly seems able to string two words together to make a recognisable sentence. Remember yesterday? We went over to the gate and really concentrated, trying to make some sense out of what he was saying, and it was just impossible. It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s been talking to that Stephen Hipperson in Yorkshire. They’re very isolated down there in Yorkshire you know. It’s not at all like living in Cumbria. It’s all ‘So tha says’ and ‘Hey up!’ down there, whereas here, well, I mean we’re all bilingual up here, aren’t we? Good grief I mean, I’ve spoken both Scotch and Cumbrian all my life. Yes, I’m fairly sure he’s a foreigner of some kind, probably from Down South. They’re a funny bunch down there you know. And, come to think of it he does have a really weird sort of accent. Doesn’t he?

“I mean ‘Baaaaaaa’. P – lease!”

    Of course, in the consideration of balance, we mustn’t forget about ‘white-faced sheep’ – http://stephenhip.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/white-faced-sheep/
    I suspect that going any further North will bring on my nose-bleeds – as I’m Norfolk boy by breeding – yet to be acclimatised into the Yorkshire fold – though I’ve been here for 25 years.

      Thank you for the link – I’d hate to have the tabloids prodding the government to reduce my licence fee for being all one sided and cut out of cardboard.

      Wow – 25 years! You wouldn’t like to sit and have a cup of tea while I catch up a bit, would you? 2 years is the best I can do at the moment – but I’m working on it.

      PS Thank you very much for popping in to check on my sheep.
