We went to the Wensleydale Creamery in Yorkshire. I had mentioned maybe going to a cheese factory, our hosts thought I would get the Wallace and Gromit jokes (I didn't, I hadn't seen the show.) Between the parking lot and the creamery was a meadow with sheep in it. Friendly sheep, there was a path through the meadow and the sheep spent a lot of time with people.
That was the start of my liking sheep. You have to be careful if you say loving sheep, people get the wrong idea, this is the not land where men are men and sheep are nervous. I like the look, the basic shape, the fluffy fleece. Sheep and penguins are recurring themes in my life.
What animal keeps popping up in your life?
