I read on CL that someone in my area lost 15 sheep! I know that there is a lot of empty land behind those lots, so the sheep could very well be congregating together somewhere out in the conservation land, but they could have also been stolen. I think it would be pretty difficult to steal 15 sheep, though, without someone noticing.
This weekend I found that making tomato sauce out of you own very ripe tomatoes is almost too sweet. It was fun to make it, even though I don't really have enough to can - which was a goal. The tomatoes have been producing about 6-8 tomatoes a day, which is pretty much enough for us to eat for salad at dinner, which has been wonderful!
I should be getting a bunch of cucumbers soon, too. And the peppers are getting tiny little buds on them, so I am hoping they make lots.
I watch Pearl Harbor on Sunday. It isn't the greatest movie, and some things don't seem to be accurate (only two planes were able to get up to respond to the bombing, and they were in cane fields, which is how they were missed, for example), but it is remarkably weird to watch even movie bombing of your home - very different than just watching movie bombing of a place you are not familiar with. I remember feeling that when we went to watch it with my in-laws years ago when it was in theaters - they were young during the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and my mother-in-law actually lived only a couple blocks away from the bomb that went astray and hit a home.
It is kind of like watching Magnum PI (show from the 80's) and Hawaii 5-0 (the old one is particularly fun, because every thing looks like when I was a kid - or watching 50 First Dates - where they drive down one street and end up at a beach or a building which is in another place altogether (or even on another island).
Ah, I guess the ramble for the day is over, but the Remembrance of Wars and the reminder of how quick and randomly death can come (not that I anticipate being suffocated by sheep anytime soon) made for a very surreal weekend.
