Tongue Out Tuesday

Since it's still Tuesday for two more hours, here's a series of pictures of a lamb doing something you don't often see.  I should have taken a video, but didn't think about it until it was too late.  


"What are you doing?"


"I'm sucking my tongue."


"That's a little weird."


"Well, I don't have a thumb to suck."


"It's fun.  See?"


"Well, it is."

Holy Moly!  I had no idea so many people were having trouble commenting.  I thought everyone was just doing Facebook these days and clicking "like" and not reading blogs anymore.  And I, being the queen of obsoletion, was just going to keep trudging along even if no one else was reading.  

I am blown away by all the comments!  There have been so many that I'm going to up the giveaway to two tote bags tomorrow so everyone has a little better chance.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Here are a couple tips that might help if you are still having trouble:

1.  That stupid "prove you are not a robot" thing.  Sigh...  I can't figure out a way to remove it.  TRY just ignoring it and go straight to "publish".

2.  Okay, I only have one tip I guess.  This is more of a question I need a tip from you about.  So, on the new format, we no longer have the option to reply to a previously posted comment?  This makes no sense. Any thoughts?

I'm just not a fan of "improvements".  They so seldom are.

Queen. Of. Obsoletion.  That's really a word even if blogger says it isn't.  And to prove it I went to Merriam-Webster online and in doing so, found that the word of the day (for 1 1/2 more hours) is grimalkin, which they say means "an old female cat".  I thought that was kind of sweet until I looked into it further.  There are a few more definitions ;-).

You never know what you'll find here, especially when I blog tired haha.

I had a small chuckle when I read that you thought your blog was not being read because everyone was following on Facebook. I LOVE your blog and read every post you write. I forward your posts to friends because your pictures (and text) are so wonderful. Problems with the comment section, I can understand, but not that your readership would disappear! Who could give up Amelia or Hank or Betsy or 20 or the many sheep and lambs and other animals? Your blog brings me great pleasure and a special 'farmie' peace. Thank you, thank you.

I love reading the blog. I have FB but rarely go on it anymore - too many ads and it seems like seeing the same things over and over. Love all the lamb and sheep and can't forget the enforcers! I like the Iknitarod and joining with Jenny to see the books you are reading. It's great to live vicariously on your farm!

LannieK said...

Who could possibly resist your blog! Like where else can you get your daily overdose of cuteness and fiber inspiration :-)
FB is so passé...

I've not been able to make a comment for several months now but it appears to be working now that you've tweaked the heck out of it!! Thanks.
Never have subscribed to Facebook and assume I don't miss much. I read your blogs daily if they are there and adore all the sheep shenanigans, the kitty flurfles,and lamb camp photos, teeters, and just everything. Thanks for being there.

"Tongue Out Tuesday" - very funny! So lambs are actually sucking their tongue when its sticking out? LOL. I can see by all the comments left yesterday that you have many blog followers who really enjoy your posts. Have a great day with all your critters!!!

Yes, the inability to reply to another person's comment is annoying. Maybe the blogger.com site did that because on other sites, commenters aren't pleasant to each other - here, we are polite and often agree! (I was going to agree about Facebook- I gave it up for Lent and that has made me happier. I'm only going on it now when a friend updates her photo).

Silly lambie. Now more of the lambs will be practicing their tongues out. Wait until they do that to their mums!

Don't feel bad about not taking a video of the lamb-lamb "conversation." I'm so impressed that you carry your camera about and get so many wonderful stills. Usually by the time I've pulled up the camera app on my iPhone, the incredible cute/beautiful thing I'm trying to capture has changed/ended.

I read daily - love the lambie stories - teefers and tongues :-)

Hmm... i did try several ways to see if I could hook this to a previous comment and none worked. I read this blog and follow you on Instagram also. I have a facebook page but I think I have written 2 things and don't read anything much anymore. They spend too much time trying to force me to visit other pages so they can count my hits for advertisers. sigh. keep going.. whatever else happens..

Does tongue sucking come before teefers? They are so precious. My feed on Facebook has been nuts, yours hasn't appeared for sometime, have no idea what's going on??? I am not very computer literate, my offline computer shut down last week, message said could not connect to internet, never has been connected....that weirded me out for sure! As for this, sometimes my comment will ho thru, some not, Be assured I am reading every day, have to get my "sheeps fix".

Don't fix what isn't broken???? Also when things change, the learning curve is horrid especially if the new thing is similar but not quite the same as the old. Tiresome. :)

Michelle said...

Just be glad you have commenters; seems like only only get one or two anymore. Seems strange when there are so many (40 to over 100!) who visit.... I guess I just don't publish comment-worthy posts!

farm buddy said...

Hello,
Hey, even I can comment now! Great pictures, as usual. My ewes are due to lamb ANY MINUTE NOW!! Wish you were here!

Opallady said...

I check every day, sometimes 3 or 4 times, to see if a new post is up or to read an older one just for the uplifting effect it as on my spirit. Hey, this might be two comments on two consectutive posts, a first for me!

I like the British "moggy" better than grimalkin!

Love seeing the little pink lambie tongue. Too much cuteness on your blog.

So glad that you were able to sort out the comment issues. I must confess that I am one that usually just reads, however, I want you to know that your writing and photos are often the very bright points in a difficult day at work and really put some spring in my break after reading during my lunch break! Thank You!

Paula, the way I understand it, FB decided what you get to see and what you don't. So just because you follow Punkin's Patch doesn't mean you are going to see those posts. It's all a marketing mystery/nightmare. I would suggest googling how FB works...but you don't want to ;-).

farm buddy - I wish I was there, too! Must. Invent. Teleporter...but I can't even figure out how to use a computer half the time...

I like moggy better too!

I try to post a comment at least every two or three posts i read on any blog, just to show I am there. It can be lonely and feel kind of weird to just keep posting away and wonder who the heck is reading your stuff. I do both Fb and blogs, but I prefer blogs. You get to know people and their animals so well. By comparison, Fb is shallow.
