Oh us kids (meaning most of the kids around here including us) always had pet lambs when we were kids.  It used to be a REAL big deal getting them ready for the kid's section of the local agricultural and pastoral show or "the pet show" as we all called it.   We kept record books for them, groomed them, doted on them....they had all sorts of prizes for like, hmmm, let me remember:

Best Cared For Lamb
Best Presented Lamb
Best Leading Lamb
Best Record Book For A Lamb
etc

These were the really important things when I was a child, our pet lambs. grin

Cute, friday!

I had a long conversation with this little yellow admiral butterfly yesterday.   There have been Red Admirals, Yellow Admirals and Monarchs flying around in my garden all week - yay!    I was actually sitting down and this little butterfly landed on me.   She didn't stay long, then she flew off and landed on one of the grapevines.  Butterflies can be really hard to photograph because they're usually so flighty but I snuck over and she just stayed there.  Actually I stayed there 30 minutes trying to persuade her to open her wings using my telepathic powers of persuasion and she said, nope, not opening them!    I told her a lot of stuff and asked her about various things but she wasn't saying much.  Mostly she said, "Just take a nap in the sunshine like me.  You worry too much".

I called her Demelza.

Here she is.

How could you not fall in loved with that sweet little face?

And if she'd opened her wings she would have looked similar to this (a butterfly I photographed a couple of years ago, probably one of her forebears).


That doesn't all show in this thread but it will if you go to "view latest posts".

Twin baby polar bears celebrate their 100-day birthday

These polar bear cubs, born and raised at Tianjin Haichang Polar Ocean Park in China, were so tiny and frail at birth that they weren’t expected to survive. Keepers whisked them into an incubator, and have been caring for them around the clock since then. But at 100 days old, the babies are now healthy and playful and super, SUPER cute.
