Day 1217: It’s May!

May I share this song about May, from the musical Camelot?

May I also share that I used to sing and dance to the music of  Camelot alone in my basement during the early 1960s and then got to do that on stage in the 1970s?


May I point out that I’m to the right of the Maypole and the sheepdog?

May I share LOTS of photos from yesterday’s Sheep Shearing Festival?












May I apologize for how long it took to load and/or look at all those photos?

May I say how much fun I always have at the Sheep Shearing Festival? May I also say that missing it last year (because of cardiac-related surgery) and the year before (because of pneumonia) made me appreciate it, even more?

May I show you two more photos, taken on this 1st day of May?


May I sheepishly ask you to leave a comment?

Many May thanks to all who helped me create this May Day post and to you — of course! — for visiting as you may.

  10. Enjoyed the photos! That is very cool that you got to perform on stage! Have a lovely May!

  11. I would love to go to a sheep shearing festival. I have a renewed interest in knitting. Maybe it has something to do with becoming a grandmother. 🙂

    Happy May Day! My garden is coming alive.

    The sheep shearing festival is phenomenal. I would love to go next year.

    • I’m happy to hear about your garden, Mary! You should definitely go to the sheep shearing festival next year. It always happens, rain or shine.

  15. I have never heard of a sheep shearing festival, nor did I know that one pound of wool could make so many things! I’m somehow not surprised to see you on stage but I wish I could have been in the audience. I used to play sax in a band during school musicals, but have never even heard the music for Camelot. I feel sheepish about that.

    Happy May Day!

  16. May I say I am glad I came here today, that’s is all I have this morning I have to take Leo to school

  17. A great set of pictures, Ann

  19. May I say how lovely the photos are? Thanks for sharing them. Have you tried shearing the sheep?

    • You may say that and I may say that this a very lovely comment, Jai. I have never tried shearing sheep but who knows? Maybe I may in the future.

  20. And what a May Day that was! Now they want me to be Moses in a new film!
