More pitiful than Pearl



We used to call one of our sheep Pitiful Pearl when we got her...  She had been rejected by her mother and bottle fed.  None of the other sheep wanted her around and she bawled the whole first summer...  But she has always been the most loving and one of my best mothers....

But this lamb is truly pitiful..  A neighbor called Sunday and wanted me to take this lamb.  It was about the same age as mine and had been rejected by its mother...  In addition she said her dog was harassing it..  I was really overwhelmed when  it arrived..  It is so emaciated as you can see by its haunches...and her dog had chewed off the bottom of both its ears and it looks like the dog  was chewing on its leg also..  I'm trying to get it to come for a bottle supplement but no luck so far...

You can see it here with one of my fat-assed little darlings who have been very kind to it.

The dinner yesterday was a  success and the center piece was one of my favorite.... flowering quince, blue clematis, blue double columbine, doronicum and a little yellow wildflower... DH did all the dishes...

So now you have a Pitiful Mini-Pearl. It was nice of you to take her in, especially since you are trying to downsize. Your table looks delightful, from the dishes to the flower arrangement! And we KNOW how yummy your meals always are! :-) Hugs, Cathy

Shame on that Dog! I'm hoping the Most Pitiful turns her life around with this new opportunity...

As for that dinner...well, I read about the food and it sounded terrific. BUT the table and the FLOWERS! The perfect setting for a great meal.

Not sure if you have ever watched Top Chef, but there were two brothers competing at the finals last year....The Voltaggio brothers. Anyway...one of them has a restaurant about an hour away and we're going there tonight to eat at a special tasting table in the kitchen! It took us a year to get a reservation! We have a designated driver and we're going with my sister and her husband. I'll report back...
