Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

You know how Theo's head was about to explode with joy at Touch a Truck Day? Mine is due for explosion on Saturday when Sue and I go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival on Saturday. Remember the Tomato Vine yarn? It is supposed to be at said event along with every kind of yarn that I could ever want along with some "I didn't even know I wanted!" (to quote young Mr. Simpson when he was a lad).

Mike, Sue's husband, and Steve are going with us. I am not sure that their hearts will sing with joy as will ours (love that phrase Erin). However, they did promise, albeit after several scotchs, that they would go with us. I have a feeling it will be an "Affair of the Heart" type atmosphere only with sheep. How could that not be a good time!?!

There will be sheep shearing contests and dog herding contests (can I borrow Daisy?) which should keep them entertained for about, oh, seven minutes. I guess they will have to content themselves with people watching for the rest of the time. I expect it will be the parade of humanity as those types of events usually are.

I will take my camera for live action shots of Steve and Mike dozing on a bench.
