Nap Time

I need to finish packing, then I may take my Sunday afternoon nap.  I'd seriously be willing to switch the order on those two activities, but I decided that it would be a good idea to use my bed as a staging area so until I finish packing I don't have anywhere to nap.

After I get back home, maybe I'll be able to catch up on my blogging.  If nothing else, I have a bunch of pictures to share.  For now here's one to tide you over, in honor of today being Good Shepherd Sunday.
For the annoying customs and immigration people who will want to ask all sorts of silly questions when I enter the US again: I have not been anywhere even remotely agricultural in the entire time I have been out of the United States.  I don't know why you might think otherwise.  For everywhere else: if you go to England and take the drive up from Salisbury to Avebury to see the neolithic stone circles, earthen-works, and barrows (which you totally should) security at the site is basically comprised of a sign next to the gate latch that says 'please don't let the sheep out'.  The adult sheep do not particularly care about the humans who occasionally tramp through the fields to point at the rocks they're grazing around, but this about as close as you can get to the lambs before they shy off. 
For extra bonus fun, bring a dog that's used to life in the city with you.  Watch it go nuts trying to figure out what it's supposed to do about these interesting new creatures.  This is only fun for the dog.  The sheep know what their dog is like and are prepared to ignore any others, much the same way that they are prepared to ignore tourists. 

I'll see you soon,
