Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 23rd November, 2021)
Just the job to help with your lawn - an all in one cut and a manuring service, and a lot less bother than an hover.
I know someone who keep Pygmy Goats to help keep the wild flora in check on their spare land, and they do a grand job of it too.
Will them be the same three sheep on the photo sent in to Photo-a-Day by Rev David on Sunday, 16th February, 2014.
Look like it to me.
Yes Mick, it's almost the same photo.You have a good memorie.This is a nice scene for Whelley.Good photo David.
I hope the sheep are not the same ! The meat would be as tough as old wellies..
Nice photo of pastoral Whelley.
It's certainly the same field - but whether they're the same sheep or not, I wouldn't know.
Just a thought - I see lots of lamb for sale in the shops - but I can't recall any mutton. Is all mutton being dressed as lamb these days?
Awwwww"......they look so contented!
I only went to sleep at the side of this wall, then woke up with two black eyes.
Rev you see plenty of mutton for sale on Bolton market, and you can see plenty of mutton dressed as lamb down king street.
Im just off to Bolton market as it happens this morning.
C'mon Dtease you must have a quip handy....
I see Mick has a good memory for a sheep, its always important to get a nice one
Hope you find a nice piece of mutton dressed as lamb Mick
Mutton dressed as lamb should be on the ‘Interesting sayings thread’
They are different sheep, compare their face markings.
Pass the mint sauce!
We keep Suffolk sheep as pets. They are beautiful animals - no aggression, just a very calm nature, and very soothing to be around. My husband, who's unwell, looks after them, and the time he spends feeding them etc is a really 'soothing time' for him. Needless to say, we don't eat lamb!! Lovely photo David, thanks.
We once saw a lady at one of the 1940s events who was dressed much to young for her age, and we heard someone quip that she was "Mutton dressed as Spam!",
“For a minute there Gertrude I thought it was the one with the bike again”. “Thank God this one hasn’t got his wellies on”.
So far so good on the 'mutton dressed as lamb' theme ...;~))
I think I know who you mean Irene, The 'French' couple? But good dancers if a bit tired looking.
Yes, it was them, Veronica, And do you know, we have got to know her and she is one of the loveliest, friendliest people you could wish to meet. It was just the remark that tickled me! But she can certainly carry her outfit off with confidence! We haven't seen them for a long time due the events being cancelled because of Covid. I hope she's dancing again next year in her own inimitable style!
I just hope they are still around Irene. They look a fun couple and very attractive for their age - must be all that dancing!
Yes, I think they are Veronica. Sadly, Walter had a stroke a couple of years ago but was recovering slowly last time I heard. . Colleen is fine as far as I know. I look forward to seeing them again.
It’s the one with the hush puppies I’am bothered about Gertrude, anything I hate is being taken by surprise.
Is there such a thing as hush puppy wellies John G? I mean somebody slipped on the tiles how would he go on creeping in the 'mire'.
Veronica: Now where does it state hush puppy wellies!
DTease mentioned wellies.
I am just asking is there such a thing as
'hush puppy' wellies John G? The 'hush puppies' are in the previous thread worn by someone who slipped in them and mentions mutton dressed as lamb and the sheep are in Whelley! Oh! Never mind! ;~))
Veronica, there is an old joke about lonely Shepherds on the fellside who always wore wellies for other purposes than keeping their feet dry, that’s where the wellies come in to it.
Oh Heck ! The mind boggles Dtease!
