Oh 20 Won't You Come Home?

When last seen, 20 was headed down the driveway with his Uncle John. After a couple weeks playing second fiddle to Blossom, he was excited to be off on a vacation to The Hillside. And he was looking forward to getting fitted for some summer-time short britches.



Since then I've received numerous pictures of his many adventures and am now concerned that he might not ever want to come home. It's been a grand time for sure. In fact, you can view these hilarious pictures on his very own Picasa Web Album.

Last week, in an effort to entice him back, we opened the pool. He was mildly interested, but quickly pointed out that he would need Auntie Reg to make him some swimming trunks first. A clever delay. Well played, 20.

Today Ms. G. upped the anty.



She brought him his very own "pony"!

Is that not the cutest thing ever? He/she needs a name. Well, I guess first off we should decide if it's a he or she, then a name ;-). Leave your suggestion(s) in the comments and when 20 comes home, I'll have him draw a winner and pick out something fun to send out.



In the meantime, this little sheepie looks a bit worried about the new home. Sure would be nice if 20 was here to comfort him/her. Luckily Blossom is here to help.

"Oh there you go again with the Blossom stuff. I may just NEVER come home!"

Oh 20, won't you please come home?

What an amazing new member of the family! Obviously this is a boy. You can tell by the sturdy physique and lack of long eye lashes.

I will ponder a name and write back in a bit.

20 says- Life is good on the Hillside. I have friends, donuts and a new closet of clothes. I'll see you all at the fiber festival Mum.

Alice said...

Donuts can trump just about anything!
Ummm... Is Auntie Reg taking borders after 20 leaves? I'd like some of the same! LOL

Very funny, Ed.
Cute new addition and I think it's a boy too. He looks like he wants someone to ride him. So...how about
EweRIPidees
Kind of ranchy, a little bit.. just a thought.
Just ckd out 20's photo album. Oh my lord, I didn't think there was anyone else as goofy, oops, whimsical as we are. But I concede. Reg has us beat; the tea party did it for sure. LOL

I think his name is Flash.

Peruby said...

Ten. She is a perfect 10 and half the size of 20.

Maureen said...

Definitely a boy. And definitely a "Rocky"....

And definitely CUTE!!!! I am sure 20 will be as smitten as I.

Dreaming said...

He is just too darn cute. That seems to be my thing to say this year - but my friends insist on putting up pictures of things that are just... too darned cute!

I think he (oh, it's a he, for sure) should be called "BaaBaa"... as in Black Sheep.

Sheepmom said...

OK, thought about it....
How about Black Baaart?

Fleece & Fiber Fanstic said...

Talk about a spoiled STUFFED SHEEP!

Nobody ever offered me such a nice enticement to come home...

;-)

I think 'he' looks like a "EweNo" (sounds like You-know). Because he's NOT a ewe and because I like the sound of Twenty and EweNo hanging out together.

Nancy K. said...

OMG ~ The web album is hysterical! But I didn't see a closet full of new clothes for poor 20! It looked to me like he was wearing the same outfit all the time! EVEN AFTER EXERCISING!

He better come home, quick!

The album gave me a name idea: How about "Yoga". Yoga will be good exercise for 20 and help him find 'inner peace'...

;-)

Far Side of Fifty said...

I am with the group..looks like a boy to me! As for a name..how about Nineteen cause it comes just before twenty! I enjoyed all the photos..no yoga for me either although I liked the after yoga tea party and Derby Pie:)

Spinners End Farm said...

Oh Ya! Boxer shorts, a dew rag, and Sam Adams?! 20 looks pretty kicked back...

Camp said...

oh noooooooooooooooo i checked out the pic gallery and 20 has become a couch potato. you dont need stinkin yoga 20. get outside at the farm and swim and play!

Lori Skoog said...

OK...how about "Black Jack" as in 21.

Sarah said...

How about "Cloud 9" from the Rockin' P sheep ranch? "P" being for "Patch" of course.

Cloud because he's black like a little black storm cloud, and pushed on to Cloud 9 because that's where 20 will be when he meets his new friend. That is if 20 ever comes home. (which I'm sure he will....eventually)

He's awesome, and yes, like everyone else I believe Cloud 9 is a he. Too masculine a face for a she.

small farm girl said...

Blaaaack Beauty? lol

Alice said...

How about Gita-yup ?

Anonymous said...

How cute! I think it's a boy too, (like everyone else). I don't know why, but the name "Buck" comes to mind.

Alice said...

That macho black sheep could be “Lambo"

Eleanor P said...

How about "Sheepie"--that's the name of Rory (of comic strip "the Barn" fame)'s stuffed toy sheep.

I read a book, it is the second part of Three Bags Full, and there is a little winter lamb called Heathcliff. All the book through, he is looking after his name, and then, finally founds his name is Heathcliff. Did you read "Three Bags Full" ? The Second parts name is "Garou" in the german original, it is by Léonie Swann and about a flock who's shepherd is being killed and the sheep find out who it was. It IS FUN!
