Lisa said...

Ok, I did the needful.

Carried a lamb???

JakeJakob said...

I know. Where does that come from?

I have walked around Greektown with souvlaki on a stick.

amy said...

i know someone who carried a lamb.
it was in new zealand on a sheep farm. sheep ranch? whatever.
he told me about it years later for no apparent reason, so i guess it must be the kind of thing that makes an impression.

so i didn't read this until just now, and while i am generally averse to participating in these things, for you i will make an exception. sometime...soonish.
