  2. Oh my... I won't be able to go to sleep this night then...

    I have to stay up late. I have to stay up ALL night. I have to go make some coffee. I have to go make a lot of coffee... So long... :-)

  3. why are we making them wait til tonight.
    The suspense must be killing them.
    I dont want my new owner to drop dead before she's even had a chance to send me a gentle virtual hug.

  4. Oh Look at sweet Cappucino's mum, her face definitely pales by the sheer thought of nuts or King Arthurs ladies....
    Can't wait!

  6. Oh I'm so excited. My new owner has the champagne on ice for the announcement. All her mates will be there to help celebrate. She throws the best parties and today I'll get to be the centre of attention.

  7. Hi Kitchenmage,
    Uh, yep, that was the outloud voice.

    Hi Liselotte,
    You'll be fine. You're full of strength and stamina, remember?

    Um, hi Guinevere,
    Well, of course we wouldn't want anyone to drop dead in the next few hours. The fact of the matter is that everything would be all done by now if contestants like Sam wouldn't keep sending me into uncontrollable bouts of laughter with their comments. Let me tell you, it's a bit difficult to type when you're rolling around on the floor in a fit of giggles.

    Hi Nic,
    At least you'll have no problem staying awake--you're on west coast time. : )

    Hi Baking Soda,
    And yet another contestant who is thriving on the words Never give up, never give in, and bash the opponents whenever you can! (I love it!)

    Hi Wendy,
    Easy there. Deep, slow breaths. That's better. Sheesh. No collapsing on my blog!

    Um, hi Missy,
    I'd love to chat about champagne, but I think I need to go call the library and find out if anybody exceptionally wooly looking is online over there. . . And do a head count here.

  8. Good morning MISSY. Yes the champagne is in the fridge. Stop fretting. No it won't be Guinevere. Oh you do look lovely today. No, not Cashew either. Yes, there have been lots of silly names mentioned haven't there. Farmgirl's a sensible woman - she knows you are a real MISSY. Parkman is looking forward to meeting you.

  9. Gasp! Fading fast...For gawds sake women...NAME THAT SHEEP!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh my... someone really read what I wrote the other day. Hmmm... well, suppose I'll be fine, but I'll be waiting afraid of breathing and evening at your place is NIGHT at my place so I'll probably be dead by the time you announce the winner.

    Well, just for the record. I was truly hoping all the way to my very last breathe. I died with a smile on my face convinced that the little sheep made it and got the only possible name; Liselotte.

    - Oh... and i never ever exaggerate my troubles. Never! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ladies!
    Buck up and stop making me laugh!

    P.S. Liselotte, I do believe I specifically said the announcement would be "tonight," not "this evening." We're talking many hours from now. I'm working as fast as I can. You wouldn't want me to just skip tucking in the sheep and let them spend the entire night out roaming around with the coyotes do you? Chores to be done, much typing to do! Maybe try a little nap.

  12. I am a sheep called Missy.
    I hear someone in food blog land is suggesting another sheep is named after me.
    You might call that flattering but I call it thievery.

    Don't mess with me.
    I am unique and that is the way I want to stay.

    I might look cute but I'll be after you, and I will reduce you to a scribble, believe me.

  13. I'll head straight for my bed now. I'll try making it through the night, but will I?

    Oh well then... No, the sheep should NOT be left outside. They should have plenty of love, a fantastic story to make them fall asleep and then... then you can go make the announcement. I'll TRY to hang in... I'll try... ;-)

  14. Wuff woofff!

    Willow here.
    Now if you go naming one of those there sheep after me, it's going to get very confusing when I come to stay with me old cousin Lucky Buddy Bear and try and help him round them up, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gasp...........not going to...make it......somebody get the smelling salts!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sheep? SHEEP??!

    I am a beanie babie bear.

    Not a soppy sheep.

  17. Sacrilege
    who deleted my picture in my previous post?
    What with me being so handsome and all.

    Maby Lucky Buddy Bear is jealous. Maybe that's why I have been waiting so long for an invite...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Um, have y'all been into the champagne already or what?

    ReplyDelete
  19. No sheep in the library just called them. No champagne either.

    Now Hssssssshhhhhhhhhh! all of you, please.

    I need to concentrate.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fine! I guess I will just have to sit here and wait. I need something to occupy my mind. Hmm, maybe I will knit. Maybe I can knit myself a pair of socks from my last leg shearing.Kind of redundant though. Shearing my legs to knit socks for my legs. I think this contest is testing my sanity.Dont worry I will be fine.

  21. Help! help!
    I am being kidnapped.
    I can't swim, someone save me please!

    ReplyDelete
  22. 'Ello, 'ello, 'ello. Lets be havin' you then, Which one of you took Yellow21???

    ReplyDelete
  23. I must get back to making the house look pretty for the party. See you soon MISSY.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I still think she looks like an Astrid. Did you ever say why it couldn't be an "A" or "B" name?

    ReplyDelete
  25. We think MISSY is the best name.

    ReplyDelete
  26. i think they are into something stronger than champagne... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. A is for Astrid or apple, not for sheep.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yellow21 is a sensitive child, fair of face, full of grace and quite soft. Please be gentle with her, I beg of you all.

    She went missing a while back. Silly someone who wanted to call her missy.
    Now she really is. That nice Inspector Mr Woolsey is on the case and we hope to have found her again by the time we announce her beautiful, regal new name later tonight.

    I think she may have just trotted down to the library to check out on you lot. Please don't crack open the champers til later. Us sheep don't like to start drinking before our evening meal.

    thank you

    Yellow21's mom, Doll Face.

  29. This is just cruel. I live on the east coast. It's going to take more than one pot of tea to keep me awake. Come on have mercy!

  30. Bubba,
    I just wanted to let you know that no matter what the outcome is, you bake one heck of a cupcake! And if you need it I have a shoulder you can cry on!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am sorry for my last post. i didn't mean to complain.
    The naming of renaming Yellow21 is worth waiting a million years for, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  32. forget the shoulder, I'd rather eat another cupcake.

    ReplyDelete
  33. ha ha - see - in my wedding outfit that you linked to, I am almost dressed like a sheep.
    Sheepish colours anyway. A Guineverian palette I'd like to call it.

    (PS. no jokes abut a wolf in sheeps clothing now..)

  34. Tana, sweetie
    you haven't been checking all your small farms very thoroughly, have you?

    If you had done a little more simple research you would realise that I, Rita Merino, am already live and kicking, with a very fancy hairstyle, at the Homestead Woll & Gift Farm in WI.

  35. I have this theory. I call it the Big M theory.
    Im a Mother/farm girl is a midwife
    I shoot them out she catches them.
    I say Mmmmm yummy a lot/farm girl says Mmmmm chocolate a lot.
    Farm girl has a cat named Molly/I have a kid named Mushmello.
    Farm girl lives in the Middle of nowhere/I live in the Middle of Michigan.
    We are kindred spirits. Cant you see all the m's.
    Marzipan it was meant to be.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No good being called marzipan.
    I just keep getting deleted.
    Or eaten.

  38. Actually, I didn't post a second time and have no idea who or why someone would use my name to post on my behalf.

  39. I can't wait to see the results of this contest--both because I want to find out the new name AND because I think the comments will be hysterical!!
