oh bother....


My FarmVille farm is afflicted with the glitch that makes my sheep pen grow to an enormous size. Whenever it does this, I find myself thinking:

Grey lay the land, oh.
Grey grass from sky to sky.
Not near the weir, dear.
Not a mountain, low or high — only hills and grey grey.
Watch the dappled dimpled twinkles blooming on the star bar.

That's from Norstrilia, by Cordwainer Smith. Giant sheep feature heavily into the story. Now I have my own.

At least it isn't Mother Hitton’s Littul Kittons....
