My favorite thing...

UPDATE:

Some of my many fans, er, loyal readers, are complaining about my blog having funny look and not looking right. So to make these loyal readers happy I removed the computer. I hope the rest of you loyal readers don't mind. But I won't make every one happy. I do try though.


I love computers. I love being online. It's how I relax. In fact, I'm taking classes so I can get a job in a office with a computer. I'm taking Office Technology and am learning all about Microsoft Office. I know Office '97, 2000, and 2003, and will be learning Office 2007 soon. I asked for Office 2007 for my birthday which is September 27th. My blogging anniversary is September 25th. I would like you to give me presents on both days.

I know how Microsoft Office is, but if you ask me to help you set up the computer, I don't know how to do that. I would have to read the directions. I can put programs on or in the computer with no problem. I can download stuff. I can shop online. Heck, I even have online friends. There's this one guy who always is talking to me online. He tells me all about his female friends. To my knowledge, he's never been here to this blog. Go figure.

I also have an English email pal, who, to my knowledge hasn't been here either. I would like to have an online friend to hang out with who goes where I go online. I have yet to find someone like that. I would like this person to go to the forums I go to. I don't go to the forums that much anymore, I don't know why. Mainly, now, I play games and blog.

I've been wanting to learn about sheep since my avatar is a sheep and my screen name is Little Lamb. Sheep are very trusting animals. They do make good pets. They're gentle animals. I don't know if you could train one to be a watch lamb.

Bad news - sheep don't have any choice but to be trusting, they are incredibly stupid - no reflection on you, you are plenty smart.

Serena Joy said...

Good luck with your Office Tech class. Sheep are a bit too trusting, but I see no reason why they can't be trained to be good watch sheep.:-)

/t. said...

sheep are,
well, sheep...
and they are very sheep-like

i like sheep and sheep-like lambs like little lamb, who is not really a lamb or a sheep, or so it is believed

/t.

Never seen a picture, so we have no proof she isn't an actual lamb.

Pink said...

I think she IS an actual lamb.

That explains the problems in setting up the computers.

No thumbs.

But good on ya lambie for hoofin' it to classes all the time.

Since you like the bible, why don't you research the lamb of God? I hear he takes away the sins of the world. Have mercy!

He makes a great watch lamb. All the time.

I guess Pinko might be referring to Revelation 5:6-14 or perhaps Genesis 22:7-8. Or the revelation of the Lamb of God in Exodus 12 and 13. Then there's the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Revelation 19:6-9 too. Just sayin'.....I'm not just a pretty face, you know.

I like to spend time online too! Some people have jobs and relationships, I have my computer. *shrugs shoulders*
And online friends are so much better than flesh'n'blood ones cuz you can just turn them off when you feel like it.
Would you be my online friend?

Stan!! said...

Well, you can turn me on whenever you like, hun. If you see what I mean....

Stan!! said...

I too love sheep, but not in the biblical sense.

Little Lamb said...

Kid, sheep are stupid, but Z didn't want to say that in my post.

Serena, Thank you, I wouldn't know how to train a sheep to be vicious.

/t., Thank you, I like you, too.

Kid, I can send you a picture. What's your email address?

Pinks, I read the Bible all the time. I love those books. The Lamb of God is the bested Watch Lamb.

Stan, no you're not.

Krissie, you are so right. Yes, I'll be your online friend.

Stan, I can't turn you on all the tiem. Sometinmes you're not online, if you see what I mean. :)

I too, like sheep and like you, not in the biblical sense.

Stan!! said...

Lambie, which forums do you like to hang out in?

Mayden' s Voyage said...

A sweet young man who lived on a farm named a lamb after me one time-
I think that was one of the sweetest things ever done for me.
Not long after the lamb was born (along with her siblings)- she was the only one who wobbled over to him-
and so he named her after me.
I have a photo of her somewhere...but that was a long long time ago~ 20 years at least.
:)

Little Lamb said...

Stan, They're in my side bar. I go to cop forums.

Mayden, Wow! That is sweet. I'd like to see a picture if you can find it.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Posted a picture just for you. My e-mail is NerveAgent@cox.net

Little Lamb said...

I'll have to send you my picture.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Now I have to get a frame...

Little Lamb said...

Will the dogs get jealous?

The Phosgene Kid said...

We have more pictutres of the dogs than we do of the kids. Some of them are even in frames!!

Little Lamb said...

How do the kids feel about this?

I grew up on a farm where we raised sheep. I could never decide if the sheep were brilliant or stupid. They were very social animals and each spring set up a nursery for the lambs. They appointed the same two old kind ewes to babysit all the lambs. They would run the nursery and keep the lambs together and school them in the ways of sheep. They were also smart enough to know when my Dad had left the premises. They would come up to the house and crap on the front porch. He eventually built a fence around the house with a cattle guard because the porch poop made him so angry. He was weird that way.

The stupid thing they did was follow the leader. It was weird. They had a lead sheep - King. He was physically bigger than the rest of the sheep. They would follow him single file around the farm. If there was a hole in the fence and King went through it, they would all go through it - single file. Then we would have the whole herd out on the highway staring at us dumbfounded while we tried to herd them back in.

They always had this look on their faces too like the light was on but no one was home, except the lambs. The lambs had very expressive faces.

Little Lamb said...

Do sheep only listen to their shepherd and no one else? Do they know who they belong to?

/t. said...

UPDATE

it didn't work

LL, it's like your template is blown up -- maybe you need to try another one(?)

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Ok, Now I see it. I didn't see it before. I don't know why.

Maybe it is time for another one.

Busy, busy, busy.

Corn Dog said...

In my opinion, mind you this is only my opinion, I felt the sheep thought they belonged to no one but themselves. They liked the old man that worked on the farm the best. He was about 80 years old. I guess you could call him their shepherd, but they pretty much governed themselves. King, the lead sheep took them around the farm and sometimes out a hole on the side of the fence. King decided where they would eat from day to day. He took them back to the barn at night. If a snowstorm or something was coming, Mr, Underwood, the old farm hand would go out and get them, herd them up and take them to the barn. To this day, I cannot eat lamb. We raised cattle and chickens too. I have no problem eating them but the sheep were something else. There were like a nomadic tribe with a governing leader. People say sheep are stupid. I did see some of that, but mostly what I saw was something very similar to humans, only with 4 legs, wool and a bleat. As a child, I watched them for hours, bottle fed the babies and wandered the fields with them. My grandmother got rid of them when she found out the shearer would not come by any more for the wool. I have no idea where they went or who she sold them to. I came home from school and they were gone.

I've heard and probably read that sheep won't drink running water. They have to drink still water. And also they won't sleep if they don't feel safe.

I guess that can be like humans, because if we have something on our mind that bothers us, we toss and turn.

Seymour is a good shepherd. My lambs are all still there. None has been eaten by /t.
