The Terror of . . . Sheepnado!

If you're anything like me, and God help you if you are, you've probably asked yourself why Syfy (I still hate that spelling) made a movie about a shark tornado when they could have done a movie about a sheep tornado.

Oh. That's why. Right then, carry on.

Hi there!
That is so funny! I'm still not going to EVER see that movie! I'm betting it's as bad as Anaconda (or one of it's several sequels).

I forgot where I was (maybe Montana), but many years ago I had to stop for some sheep crossing the road. Next thing you know we were in the middle of an huge flock (flock, here, whatever you call it). When the last of them was just crossing the road, an Australian Shepherd ran across the road behind the sheep and another one jumped on the hood of my car, looked in at us and then jumped onto the roof for a minute and then down to the trunk. He just stood there watching the sheep. He acted like we weren't even there! I guess it was a good vantage point or something. My car was pretty clean when it started. Man those sheep were dusty! My car ended up being covered by dust and dog prints. The sheep were a hassle, but the dog part was pretty cool. I swear that he looked like he was thinking! He looked so smart, I was half expecting him to talk. A few minutes later a guy came came out of nowhere and walked up to our car. I guess it was his flock. He apologized for the dog sitting on our trunk and said although the sheep belonged to his family, this particular dog thought he was in charge. It was a pretty cool experience.

I think I'm going to do a blog post on this experience at some point. I'll give you credit for the inspiration. Maybe a few folks will come and check your blog out also.
