A few thoughts on our newest House sit !

Sasha and I are waiting for Scooby and Toddy to arrive here in the borders of Scotland. A Lovely house, with a well paved road, albeit a Narrow well paved road. My pal Bill McCarthy signed of last night by telling me he was off to count sheep. I looked out the  back window this morning and saw them.

To count sheep >>>>> first count the legs then divide by 4.

Later after a hearty breakfast (just Kidding Steph) I had to run for the camera and got this Pic before he could disappear from the meadow.

He seemed oblivious of us at the window.
