Sheep and Pin Love

So before we get started with What I Loving and Oh So Pinteresting I have a story for ya - a real life story - people can't make this shit up I tell ya!

I was on my way home from work last night, there has been construction on the highway, so I have been backroading it, which I love at this time of the year anyways - aside from getting stuck behind tractors. I was just singing along to my ipod when I happened to notice something on the road ahead. I slow down and realize its a sheep!

I will admit, this caught me off guard a bit. Sheep are not all that popular around here. I drive by this sheep farm every day, yet they look sooo much bigger up close! I was surprised by the size of it!

So I slowly drive my car behind the sheep and it runs a head of the car and into the driveway, so I drove on to the next house, which I believed was the farm house - no one was there! I look back to the drive way and there are now a couple of sheep heading back to the road. So I turn around and drive my car into the driveway, chasing the sheep in further. I stop and realize they are not even penned in - there was no wire up. So I notice a car at the back of the property so I drive on back. I get out of my car, phone in hand - in my work shoes and clothes might I mention.

I start hollering "Hello?" All I can hear are sheep and these cute little cats. So I walk around the barn to find more sheep. These ones were bigger then the last. I don't know very much about sheep, there is sheep shit everywhere and I am trying not to walk in it, yet keeping an eye on these damn sheep. I notice a very elderly man inside, so I try to get his attention - no luck! I guess some sheep got out of their pens in the barn and he was using a board to guide them back in. So I have learned that sheep are quite stubborn. So I move some caging and pop my head in the doorway, trying not to startle the man, as he is elderly, I don't want to scare him into a heart attack... I finally get his attention and he says "okay, just be quiet a minute". So I stand there waiting for these sheep to co-operate with him and he comes over and asks me what I need. I told him that he had sheep on the road. He seemed confused, and questioned as to who I was. I explained that I was driving by and noticed his sheep on the road. So he walks over to the driveway and sure enough the 2 sheep I chased in were coming down the driveway. He said he would shake a can of corn and they would all come running... I said okay, well I just wanted to let you they were loose. I go to leave and the damn sheep block me in, he asked me if those were the ones... I said yah, I think so, it was one with less hair. He walks over to my car and says, "it's wool dear", thanked me and sent me on my way.

Oh the things I do.... and the lessons I learn...maybe just maybe you can't take the city out of city girl... I might die trying!
