Friday Sheep Blogging

This is how they mow the lawn in Provence. Seriously, the closest thing to a traffic jam we get around here, outside of tourist season, is during the Transhumance, when the shepherds bring the sheep down from the mountains for the winter, or vice versa for the summer.

I've been caught in two so far, once alone and once with my son. We sat and watched them drift by, strangely powerless and fascinated. One even jumped up on the hood of the car. I'll try to add some more slices of life around here from time to time. (Blogommage to Kevin Drum.)
