To Be Sheared

As a family, we made our yearly trip to the Ohio State fair this morning.  We watched one round of the senior sheep shearing contest- the four participants had over 200 years combined experience removing the wool from sheep.  If you're going to have a sheep shearing contest, you better have plenty of sheep in need of  a haircut nearby, and these lambs met that need well.

This is Gerald.  He's standing on one of the most significant collections of Aboriginal rock art in all of Australia, and our group of 20 or so Hiram College students had the privilege to learn about these ancient, rock carvings.  I spent three months in Australia, and it shaped much of my current being.
