    Is it a Hall? So hard to tell....

    They could be being rounded up by 7928 Wolf Hall, or it could be 5965 Woollas Hall, or maybe not a Hall at all?

    4016 Knight of the Golden Fleece perhaps?

    Why not 6858 Woolston Grange?

    No? Surely then, it must be 7829 Ramsbury Manor!

    I was aware of that. However, the phrase has become part of everyday parlance.

    Archaeologists have a fancy-sounding Latin term to get around the difficulty of distinguishing the two. Ovicaprids on the line!

    This would seem to be a good time to ask how progress is on the Stogumber livestock loading dock.
    Live demonstrations should be possible.
    Did I smell mint growing in the allotment?

    This evening the sheep are still 'at large' in the environs of milepost 174-2. But I understand that plans are afoot to deal with them tomorrow.

    Rumours that Tommy Lee Jones will be reprising his 'US Marshall' role from the film 'The Fugitive' were denied by a WSR spokesman who said that the BBC were interested in making a Christmas special edition of 'One Man and his Dog'.

    Well, if TLJ put a Saddle on a sheep, it has to be on the Side, to leave room for the Pannier.
    Then he could ride across the Prairie.

    Tanks a lot.
    Goodnight.

    A sheep-herding posse headed down the line from Stogumber this morning to find.......no sign of them.

    So they must be in some farmer's field (or freezer).

    If 'Androids dream of electric sheep' (Philip K Dick reference!) do Barbie and Ken dream of plastic sheep?
