Heartbreak and Disappointment

I wasn't going to get my hopes up this time. I knew it could go either way, all I really wanted was a respectable showing - not a blow out.  But when the Vikings had possession with under a minute left in the NFC Championship game, and all they needed was a field goal, I really thought they would win and be on their way to the Super Bowl.  And then came the 12 men in the huddle penalty and then even worse, the interception that put the game into overtime.  Oh yes, heartbroken again!  Thankfully there are lots of other exciting things in life to concentrate on until the sting goes away...

The disappointment in my title comes from Greyson's fleece.  I parted it a week or so ago and found the dreaded cream colored band at the base that is characteristic of his Ag genetics.  I can only hope that it's just a seasonal band and his fleece will retain at least some of his beautiful grey color as it grows out.  I know that is wishful thinking.  But I can hope.  Just like Vikings fans keep hoping that someday, maybe someday we will get to the big one and win it. :-)


  1. OMG, Becky! You scared the Gee-willickers out of me! I thought for sure that your wonderful new LGD had killed a sheep.

    See? It's all a matter of perspective!


  2. Saint Tim and I were wedged into the 11th row in the endzone in minus zero degrees and watched that oh so familiar pick in overtime of the exact. same. game. Ah, the good ole days ;-D.

  3. You scared me too! I was sure one of your sheep had died or something else bad. Too bad about Greyson's fleece fading, but at least you can have his nice lamb fleece.


Another way to Felt locks

I belong to a group on Facebook called Vegetarian Sheepskin, which is a strange name for felt pelts, but there are lots of variations on wha...
