Friday did not get off to the early start I had hoped for. But by 10 am I was zipping East on Highway 2 on my way to Becky's house to visit with her and Kim.
Quite a while back I agreed to meet the wood buyer from Texas on this date. I was using the stick delivery as my excuse to spend the day visiting Becky and her wonderful flock of Shetlands. Then Kim sweetened the deal with an offer I could not refuse. (More later.) At the last minute the wood buyer had to postpone our connection until after Labor Day. My cover was blown. Clancy's suspicions were confirmed-this trip was all about sheep and visiting friends. :)
I spent a whole afternoon in fun conversation with Becky and Kim. And I had the pleasure of spending some time with Becky's flock. Her BFL cross lambs are amazing, especially the youngest little ewe lamb, Dot. I had no previous interest in BFL's, but those cross-lambies were very persuasive. I'll have to think more about that. Plus, they were as cute as Shetlands with Bunny Ears. I want one! Then there was that little purebred Katmoget ewe lamb that had fleece like a cloud. (Becky wouldn't part with her or that adorable Dot.) I was in Shetland heaven.
I also got to try out a spinning wheel for the first time. I want one of those too. And Kim and Becky are up to all kinds of fun projects. It was like a Girls' Day Out for me. I had so much fun. Thank You, Ladies!
