    I love the breezy “Thank Yo-u-u-u…”

    That sheep is like “if I had a nickel for every time I get asked that…”

    That brings back souvenirs of my trip to the Britain, I’ve never seen so many sheep in my life! When you drive around the countryside in Canada what you see mostly are herds of cows and some horses. I’m not saying there are no sheep in Canada just that they are not as common as they are in Britain. They are everwhere! Heck! They were even all around Stonehenge baah -baahing in their little woolly heads off as I was trying to commune with the spirit of the place!

      That could be why, when we visited England a few years back, every meal it seemed like was MUTTON!! We wondered if they even raised anything else there. It got very tiresome. I’ve never liked it and still don’t!!

        Mutton/lamb is one of those things that I will eat (preferably smothered in potatoes or something to distract from the flavor) if I’m a guest and that’s what’s being served, but I would never order in a restaurant or make for myself.

          In a true Moroccan tagine, lamb/mutton can be wonderful.
          The spices, the slow cooking make all the difference.

        I never came across a lot of mutton in GB, but I did notice that I got served french fries with EVERYTHING. Spaghetti with a side of French Fries. Curry with a side of French Fries. Omelette with a side of French Fries. Pizza with a side of French Fries.

        I love lamb! Have heard mutton is tougher. I visited GB in ’85 and I agree about the plentitude of sheep, which are very cute except when blocking the lane.🐑

      I used to pass a field of goats on my way to work. I had to slow down, especially when there were babies, just to look. No sheep around, that I know of, though.

      Wales is even more sheepworthy. You can sit on a porch and just listen to the baaing. I know because I’ve done it!

      Sheep are clearly attracted to mystical historic sites. When I climbed Glastonbury Tor for the first time in the early 80s it was full of sheep (and their droppings!)

    The sheep are easily as prevalent in Ireland. When I visited there, one day after we stopped to admire a particularly scenic spot, with lots of sheep around, we realized after we’d stopped that we had a ewe on one side of us and her lamb on the other. The baaa-ing back and forth was hilarious, and amazingly, I got it on video. Tape, that is. Yes, this was back in the dark ages. I really need to get that tape turned into electronic media so I can watch it again!

    And I hate the fact that I love the flavor of lamb (mutton, not so much, unless it’s well and truly marinated and cooked long enough to reduce the toughness) because there are few things in this world more adorable than a lamb. So I try very hard to restrict myself to only eating it once in a blue moon.

    In Ireland, we got some sort of potatoes with every meal. One place we stopped I ordered a meal that came with two vegs, and the vegs were — a ribbon of mashed potatoes outlining the plate, and then mashed potatoes rolled in crumbs and fried! So no fries, but still potatoes two ways. I still don’t consider that vegetables, but when in Ireland, I guess that’s your choice — not whether to eat potatoes, but what way do you want them fixed? 🙂

    Several years ago I had the privilege of being in Flom, Norway on Sytende Mai (May 17). The population was about 300 after the [tourist-filled] train left and it was so quiet in the town, you could hear the lambs baa-ing. We took a walk around the town the next day and the lambs would run to the fences when you walked by and allow you to pet them. I about died from teh cute!
