Say It Isn't So

Today I looked out the window and in the front yard of 'the crazy sheep lady's' house was a "FOR SALE by owner" sign.  OMG!  How will I ever know it is spring without the sheep doing their annual migration to the front yard after the snow goes?

(I can't believe I actually found a site that sells the sheep--and had a pic!  This is EXACTLY what the they look like.  I'm really thinking that I like these.)


Anyway, I can't believe the woman is selling the house already.  She is a retiree and hasn't lived here for more than 5 years.  She spent a lot of time and money upgrading the house--it was built as a Habitat for Humanity home--and it seems unusual to do so and then sell this soon after.  K suggested it might be a medical issue with her and that might be true.  However, she still looks as fit as ever, but you never know.  So, it looks as if we will be having new neighbors in the near future--and all I can hope for is that they fit in with the quietness of our street.

Sheep generally mow the yard bare! How did she keep things looking fit?

That's too bad, maybe she couldn't afford to keep up the house anymore. I wonder what'll happen to the sheep?

Yes, hopefully it is just her wanting to downsize and there isn't any big problem.

I wonder if she would want the sheep to stay in the neighborhood? I might be able to get them for a good price... ;)

On K's off-days, I hope he gets to talk to our next-door neighbor and find out the 'real story.' (They visit with the sheep-woman.)

You can always adopt the sheep! :-D

I was thinking the same thing. ;) By the way, the 'For Sale' sign has been gone since Halloween, so this might completely be a moot point. Don't know...
