They are all looking well-dressed for Winter, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Ray. Our Dutch sheep Know how to dress appropriately! smile
Lovely shot and sheep!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.
Well, they are sheep.
Ginnie Hart: Very true, Michael. Very true.

Les moutons ont l'air d'être un peu dans le brouillard. Bon courage pour le travail...
Ginnie Hart: Many of us are still in a fog, Martine, but onwards and upwards we must go!

Great picture..I do have to say though that they are not really giving the impression that they are eager even to move... let alone 'work'... or are they waiting for instructions HA....
Love the way you processed this one.
Ginnie Hart: That was one day when all the whistling in the world meant absolutely nothing to them. They were firmly stuck in the fog! Thank you, Astrid.

Oh, what a cute flock or family of sheep. They are well eqipped to tolerate the wintery coldness.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine, and indeed! Gotta love the Dutch sheep. smile

what an outstandingly beautiful picture!!! may i have a large size of it for my desktop? I just love it!!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Elaine. Remind me later after I'm back from the American Embassy in Amsterdam, renewing my passport.
Here's looking at you. A lovely picture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Similar to those outside your front door, Chad, right?! Thanks.

My work today will be in the form of supermarket shopping. How exciting is that!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure it'll get more exciting as the week goes on, Chris?!

There expressions say that they are not keen on Mondays. They probably have had a nice restful weekend sitting around and eating and its back to ...ummm.... eating and sitting around!
Ginnie Hart: I think you've got them nailed, Alan! You've been around sheep way too long. HA!

Ils posent pour la photo
JP
Ginnie Hart: I don't think they knew what to do with us, JP! grin
Every day this week is filled in....with no time allowed for photographs!

So I am jealoussmile
Ginnie Hart: That's no fun at all, Bill, I know. Hang in there. Your day will soon come!

They are staring at you. Did you sing like a carrot? Again, I like the conversion and presentation.
Ginnie Hart: They actually were very far away (918 mm), Louis, so I don't think they had a clue who/what we were. No amount of whistling by Astrid made them budge an inch. HA!
Herd mentality, back to the dreaded job list.
Ginnie Hart: You nailed it, Martin.
I must say your sheepish friends don't look very eager to get back into the swing of things.
Ginnie Hart: I think they were stoned, Mary, and had no clue what was happening! grin
a fine sheepish portrait, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like that, Ayush. smile
I like the way they are looking at you, no doubt wondering what's going on. I'm having a good Monday, my brand new Yamaha electric piano was delivered about two hours ago, I've just found out how rusty I am, I haven't played for years!
Ginnie Hart: A new Yamaha electric piano! WOW. What a way to start off a new week, Brian. Make sure you make a video of yourself playing for us!
jolie troupe!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Friends like to stick together, JP. smile
Yea, but the nightmare is not over yet though. wink

What are we going to do, G?
Ginnie Hart: It get curious-er by the day, if not minute, LC! (sigh)

Great picture of sheep behaving properly.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. It was early morning and quite cold, leaving the impression they were not at all awake.
Alan will be pleased with this one Ginnie... i like the misty morning....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: All we like sheep, Peter! smile Thanks.
"We'll keep an eye on this one, girls - you never know..."
Ginnie Hart: HA! They seemed totally underwhelmed by the looks of it, Tom!
Some are not pleased with the news...
Ginnie Hart: I'd change that to MANY, Larry.

They don't look to happy about it ;-)
Ginnie Hart: They were in a total daze, Cherry. It was way too early and way too cold, I think.
I guess they are at work. A sheep's job is to get fat and grow wool.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, then. Now we know why they didn't budge an inch! smile
I adore this image!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Robin. Thank you.
