Sheepin the Shop, OH sh....!

As I was pouring my coffee I looked out the window and saw woolie behinds at the door of the workshop. UH OH! That's where Oscars veggie starts are and someone left the door unlatched! Emma (as usual) had pushed the door open and gone shopping with her friends! They only got into the chicken feed (rolled oats, alfalfa, molasses, sea weed, barley, and sunflower seeds.) and one tray of lettuce. It must have been a sight, 1 round woman and a border collie convincing big old ewes to leave the buffet and GET BACK OUT to the pasture! Tweed convinced them though and disaster was averted. Emma has a knack for opening barn doors an if you don't put a snap or lock through the hasp she's in. We take her to schools and nursing homes to visit so she has a misguided sense of entitlement. It is so fun to walk in to a nursing home with a sheep instead of a dog. Many of those people just light up! We have started video taping when these folks tell us their stories of growing up on the farm or what it was like before WWII. This is living history and needs to be preserved for future generations. Get your parents and grandparents to tell you how it really was back then. Tape it! We need to keep this knowledge available. And to think, my journey as a historian started with a sheep! Once our new site is up you will be able to watch these interviews and stories on line. Until then give us a buzz and come say hello. 951-259-2072. Meg
