There’s been a dramatic increase in the number of hits my blog is getting recently. Is it my sparkling wit? My lovely profile pic? Is Waiting For Spring finally bringing me widespread fame?
Nope. It’s that damned hippie sheep.
I started this blog back in January of 2006 as a fun outlet, shortly before I started writing WFS. My first post was not a typical introductory post, but rather a silly commentary about Shrek, the hippie sheep from New Zealand. Looking back, it actually screams “This is me!” in a way a “My name is…I live in…my hair is brown…” affair ever could have done. You can read it here.
For whatever reason, there has been a dramatic increase in interest in this sheep recently, and My Friend Google is leading searchers to my humble blog. It made me curious about the little guy. I wondered if something had happened to him. Another haircut, an accident, maybe a drug arrest. But no. There’s nothing new. I guess some things just have timeless appeal…

Well, gee, what other reason is there to visit a blog, besides…sheep?
hehe, it’s the longtail, baybee!
It’s the little things…
Hippie sheep here, hippie chimps in Waiting For Spring. You have a thing for hippie animals, don’t you?
Well the first time I read your blog was to hear about your pants, so hippie sheep seems a bit tame by comparison 🙂
It IS quite the grabbing sheep photo… He looks like he ought to be up in the sky making rain. I have an amazing sheep photo too. I will have to post it at some point.
