You Might Want To Put Your Coffee Down

We are setting up back with the fiber folks at the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival this year.  While I had a beautiful spot at the Bluegrass Classic Stockdog Trial last year (and they even threw in an adorable little chipmunk) I still couldn't see the trial field.  Ah, the good ole days...  Sigh.

They were looking for more sheep for display in the livestock vendor area, so I agreed to pull out a couple of the usual crew and added a couple new ones for color and breed education.  I wanted to hang something on the side of the pen to identify the suspects....hey, suspects.  Yeah, that's perfect! I'll set them up like mug shots :-D.

I tried using actual photographs, but it just wasn't "working".  I hated to give up on what I thought was a perfect idea though so this morning I sketched out some simple line drawings, colored them on the computer, dropped them onto the mug shot background...and I just can't stop laughing.

Your line up for the festival this weekend!






And...I'm sorry.  I think this is a scream.


I hope that brightened your day as much as it did mine.  Or maybe I'm just nuts...  SHUT UP! ;-)

Come see us this weekend!

There you go again. I think these mug shots should go on some mugs. Can Saint Tim do something about that?
