Oh dear!

Sheep Flu :-( :-(

A highly contagious condition which, if not treated early enough, will require infected animals to, I can't bring myself to say it :-(


eRRolSheep Report 27 Jun 2013 14:12

I got better


Sharron Report 27 Jun 2013 14:23

I have my great-uncles book of remedies. He was ,like my grandfather was all his life, at some times a shepherd.

Now, I am sure Errol has his own supply of Stockholm tar for his more minor ailments, should he dine too well at some point and become blown, I have a remedy which does not involve the usual stabbing in the belly.

It does, however, involve the use of a tobacco pipe and a bit of co-operation, always providing he can still bend when he's blowed!

As his friends. I feel we should all be vigilant in watching out for dags (don't ask) and fly strike and never let him get on his back with his little legs waving, even if we could do with a laugh!


Allan Report 27 Jun 2013 14:23

Thank Heavens for that. I shall now return the captive bolt pistol

No, the pistol was not caught by terrorists to be held for ransom....oh never mind, I'm off to bed now. Have a good day all :-)


Allan Report 27 Jun 2013 14:26

Sharron! :-0 :-0

You're on your own!!

That sounds...nasty!

I'm glad that I'm off to bed, but I do hope that I don't have nightmares :-|


eRRolSheep Report 27 Jun 2013 14:29

I'm fine.


Never felt better.

You can see me in the background with my chainsaw and cauldron.


Persephone Report 28 Jun 2013 04:20

I am not surprised that Mersey had the runs after that concoction of Errol's...

The Prairie mountain Oysters I know are not called lamb's fry here.. lamb's fry is liver..

Errol chuck a few wichetty grubs into the soup and Allan will be ok he is an Aussie now after all.


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 09:22

Hi Persey, I did say that lamb's fry was a totally different beastie in the UK.

Nations separated by a common language :-)

When we first arrived in Australia, sticky tape was sold here with the same name as a well known UK male contraceptive!

I do hope that it did not lead to any blunders ;-)

We also do enjoy a bit of Aussie lamb's fry with sausages, mash, and onion gravy :-)

Which witchetty grubs are which?


Persephone Report 28 Jun 2013 10:39

Yes you did Allan..

Not just different between our neck of the woods and UK but even between NZ and Oz.

We will stick with mowing our berm while Aussies mow their nature strip..

And you are right about brand names of products elsewhere are something else over here or vice versa.

Oh sorry! This is embarrassing I got the wrong dress code, I thought it was an invite to a Ann Summers party!

Mayfield :-S


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:03

lol Barbra. Having done meat inspection in the UK as part of my duties, I knew what they were but still tried them :-)

A bit tasteless unless prepared and cooked correctly ;-)

It's one reason that young lambs walk with a bow-legged gait

:-D :-D Mayfield

**hobbles on to thread**

Mayfield - they won't be needing me now.


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:23

Errol, you surely can't be feeling knackered already?


eRRolSheep Report 28 Jun 2013 12:35

My state of potential performance is not up for public discussion.


Sharron Report 28 Jun 2013 12:37

Looks like it is!


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:37

Ah!..the balls are still in your court, then!
